Quality and Selection- Troegs is, by far, my favorite brewery. I have never had a bad or off beer from Troegs and I pretty much love everything they make. All the scratch beers I've tasted-their regular lineup, and their seasonals are exceptional. On tap at the brewpub they have all of their regular line-up, a seasonal or two and two or three scratch beers- which, of course are brewery/brewpub only. Last time I was their they had their scratch pumpkin ale on-which was AMAZING.

Atmosphere- I'm not sure what theme they were going with here- industrial brewery, german oktoberfest, or high school cafeteria- but the brewpub area is some cluster of a combination of the three. Totally packed with hundreds of people and the only seats remotely available were at the giant octoberfest/cafeteria like table for 100- you go wait in line cafeteria-style for food and you can either try your luck waiting at the bar for a drink or flag down a beer server to get drinks. Very loud and crowded. Its saving grace is that it is very clean, has a great brewery tour, and fantastic store.

Service- Like I said- the beer servers are nice and know their beer-but you have to flag them down and you have to go wait in line for food.

Food- Limited as it is a "snack bar"- with an atypical selection including salmon, tuna tacos, brautwurst, and duck. I had the Brat- it was ok, we had an $8 stuffed pretzel too.

Overall- I will obviously be back since this place is my favorite brewery ever- but probably in the early afternoon when its not so crowded and I don't plan on eating here ever again unless they make some changes.

Visited Troegs for dinner on our way to Pittsburgh. This place is huge, but still has a really nice vibe. Very open with plenty of seating. The beer was, as usual from Troegs, solid, but unspectacular. The food, on the other hand, was really great. A nice selection, including several vegetarian-friendly choices, and some interesting takes on basic bar food. The grilled cheese may have been the best I've ever had.

Been here twice going home from Hershey park with the family. Basically letting the Dad visit before the family goes home.
Nothing like getting some scratch beer not available at home.

Oh HOME of Nugget nectar and mad elf MMMMMmmm
Can't be the stuff on tap.
Yet to try the naked elf , which was only available at the brewery. Missed my opportunity.

Great place. Got More T shirts !!

That's all from me

This place gets crowded fast, and the availability of brewery tours is very low, but they offer a nice alternative I'd love to see more places give: the ability to do a self-guided tour. It's considerably shorter and doesn't show you much of what you'd likely learn walking around with a group of people and a brewery employee, but there are info graphics on the walls at different stations and you can carry your beer or food through the area as you read.

The food itself is fantastic. It's cafeteria style, so you do have to order it and go find a seat in a crowded warehouse-sized room, but the food itself is so far from the typical run-of-the-mill variety you'll see in some brewpubs that it more than makes up for it. Their variety is everything from small, cheese-based plates to larger entrees that include venison, pork, porchetta, and a number of other German-inspired dishes.

The beer itself is great too, but you probably already know that. The brewery is one of the few things of note in Hershey (and maybe the only thing of note in the winter when Hershey Park is closed), so it's extremely popular. Parking is rough and not that big, but once you're in, you'll find a great atmosphere.
