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.

Get there early as this place fills up fast. Server rule as to what they will/won't serve you is a bit jarring on first visit. Get your own water/food.

The new Troegs is one of those so-called “destination breweries”. A massive, new shiny building with cavernous spaces, a ginormous bar and a million tables for dining. Families, tourists, babies… the place is packed with all of them.

This is not your corner garage brewery where you can sit at the bar and talk to the brewer; this is corporate craft brewing at its most efficient. Even the self-guided tour is a one-of-a-kind sterilized experience where you look at fermenters behind high glass walls.

On draft, the classic Troegs lineup plus a bunch of “scratches”. I loved the food most of all, charcuterie and creative small plates. The gift shop is full of tchotchkes you don't need but you'll want to buy, plus plenty of beer.

Would I come back? Maybe, if I'm in the area. But I wouldn't detour or make it a destination. It is just not my kind of brewery experience.

So glad to finally experience this brewery up close and personal. The place is beautiful, although the current construction understandably detracts from the exterior. Interior is a nice combo of open brewery/warehouse feel and slightly upscale dining. Great mix of staple comfort foods and interesting eclectic dishes. The beer was excellent, which was a given, and I was happy to stock up in the general store on my way out.

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

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.
