Cool place, great beer selection and a good place to buy as PA's beer laws suck if you buy in a liquor store. The only bad part is the tons are in the same open area as the food so you are assaulted with the fermentation odors the entire time while you eat. That can really throw off good tasting food, so I can't tell if I liked the fare there or not.

An awesome place. They have a huge gift shop with a wide variety of items to choose from. I loved the fact that you could get a beer and then take a self guided tour. The bar area is very impressive and the selection is decent (their beers only) The prices are a little steep but that's expected due to the are (next to Hershey Park). The only down fall of the location is how loud the bar area is. Otherwise a decent place to go and see.

The new brewery is massive! We went on a weekend, and it was busy, but not too crowded. However, with large open ceilings, on a weekend, I couldn't help but notice something that sounded like power tools/saws running in the back area, for a really long period of time. I understand that they work in the same space where they have the public, but it was really really irritating after a while.

FOOD: The menu is small. The concepts are very unique and the execution is decent. Some of the items have really, really small portions, and others are GIGANTIC. My secret passion is the german potato salad, which actually is nothing like a traditional german potato salad, but hey, I like it!!

BEER: Decent selection of their normal beers, plus a few scratch beers available. Interesting bottled concoctions are available sometimes. For anyone not familiar with the brewery, they love to experiment, and have some beers that they ferment in bourbon barrels, as well as other projects. Makes for an interesting dinner. Can't remember the last one we had, but it was similar to a lambic aged in a bourbon barrel, it was damn good.

SERVICE: While the setup is counter service with pagers, the staff does go around and check on people, clean up and offer to get more beers. My only gripe, is sometimes the staff at the food counter are kinda really uncertain about the food products. With such a small menu, learning the items & ingredients should be easy enough.

Overall, pretty good, but a little pricey depending on what you order. And I miss the quaint old brewery, where I was given a tour with a small group by one of the brothers. The new place has a slight air of corporate america, BUT damn if those guys didn't bust their asses to earn it!

Large brewpub area, plenty of seating, but it can get crowded. Food is great, but there is no servers waiting on tables. The drafts are only troegs selections, and can be very underwelming at times. The retail shop is large, and sells their beer along with the usual shirts, pint glasses, etc.

Just went with my family and had a great time. Was not busy at all got serviced pretty quickly. The food was good wasn't the best section but I enjoyed the food. They had a lot of beers available and I really liked that they let you sample beers before you bought a pint. Gift shop had a lot of cool stuff also! I did like that all the beers on tap were $5.00 that's not bad since some were 8.0. Food prices were also not bad! Loved the grilled cheese and spicy ketchup. Overall I would go back spend more money an eat!

I went to Troegs with several of my buddies (but not Harry) on a Saturday afternoon in March. We got in at around 2 and the place was already packed. The parking lot was pretty big, but we had to park on the grass. You walk in to a beer hall-like setting with a bar spanning one entire wall and the rest of the room filled with long (20+ person) tables and a few smaller tables. They have all of their year round and current seasonals on tap, as well as one or two scratch beers at any given time. They offer full pours, tasters, and growler fills to go. The gift shop offers all of their current lineup to go in six packs, including the scratch beers. As far as I know, this is the only place to get the scratch beers in bottles. The pour sizes are generous and pricing is very reasonable (I was drinking 20oz. Nugget Nectars for ~$5). They have a limited menu of deli sandwiches and snacks, but we were not there for the food. There is a self-guided brewery tour which is basically a few hallways with glass walls so you can look in and see the brewing process. We all enjoyed this as it gave us a chance to walk around and get our of the crowded bar area. They encourage taking your beer along on the tour. It was nothing special but it did give a decent description of what you were looking at via posters and visuals. The barrel aging area was pretty cool (although I have never seen a barrel aged Troegs beer?). The bar area got pretty crowded by mid-afternoon and it got diffficult to fight your way in to get a beer. Overall, a very good way to spend a Saturday afternoon with some great beers at a reasonable price. The atmosphere was friendly and everyone was there to enjoy delicious beer. If you are in the area, I would definitely recommend stopping by, but I wouldn't travel hours to go there.

I drive through Hershey several times a year, but I finally had a reason to stop when Splinter Gold bottles were available for on-site consumption a few weeks ago. I was pretty impressed by how nice the place is. It is huge, and was relatively crowded mid-afternoon. Sat at the bar and had very attentive service. All I had was the bottle of Splinter Gold, but the selection appeared to be just the basic Troegs offerings plus one Scratch Beer that wasn't particularly appealing.

A very large tasting room. Lots of people. Plenty of good beer.
A really long bar and attentive bar staffs ensures that your glass will not be empty for long.
Plenty of beer selection from their standard beers to the scratch series.
Last time I was there the misses and kids dropped me as they wanted to go to the outlets.
As this is a tasting room the food selection is quite limited.
But I don't go there for the food.
There is an awesome gift shop for your every need.

A nice and large area for visitors without seeming like a Disneyland(commercially) for beer lovers. Plenty of selection to choose from as far as beers to taste. Always helps to have tasting sizes. There beers are very good and I love many of them.
Service was good and the food they offer there is pretty good as well. In fact it is better than I had imagined.
Overall, a great brewery to visit.

Love the beer the troeg brothers put out. The new tasting room is perfect. I like the idea of going up to order at a snack bar versus having a traditional dining room with servers. It keeps it very casual and easy going. Actually a great place to take the kids. My kids love the fries and grilled cheese and they can be as loud as they want.
