Really nice place. Plenty of seating, though it can still get crowded on a weekend. Service has always been good. They offer all of their year round beers, plus their seasonal, and whatever Scratch series beer is currently available. The shop has a pretty large selection of Troegs gear, plus beer available by the case, bottle, and six pack. You can mix and match six packs, which is nice if you want a variety. Empty growlers are $16, which is a steal (they're swing top, with metal handles). I haven't seen that type of growler for that price anywhere else. Fills are reasonable too. Most are around $10. I can't say much for the food, as I've only tried a couple of items, but what I had has been good. The menu isn't very large, but it's meant to be a snack bar rather than a full restaurant, so it's understandable. Definitely stop by if you are a fan of Troegs beer.

For anyone who truly enjoys going to breweries, please skip this one. It is a huge, obnoxiously loud moose hall, designed to pack in as many bodies as possible, and on the Saturday night that we made the mistake of going, there were easily 400 people there. We were yelled instructions by the frazzled receptionist - to find your own seat (difficult to impossible) and then to wave down a roving bartender (if you are lucky) who might bring your beers back in about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, if you wanted food, you had to go order it yourself after waiting in line, then take a number and go back to retrieve it, God-knows-when later. My boyfriend aptly described this place as an uncivilized "Vikings' Mead Hole", a place seething with high-decibel humanity who were there to - yikes, have fun? We won’t be going back to find out. In fact we didn't even stay more than 5 or 10 minutes, then we went running outta there!

Tour was awesome and the place was great. Beerhall style dining area was perfect. Selection of brews including specials only available at the brewery. Tried a number of the specials and all were excellent. Food was outstanding by any measure. Highly recommended.

Stored by while on vacation to Hershey, Pa. Only stopped to get a growler fill but my first impression was “wow what a great place”. Nice vibe great selection. Drinking Blizzard Hops IPA. A pretty darn good winter ale. Would probably rate higher but was only there far 29 minutes. Currently 48 degrees. Highly recommend.

[3rd stop on a 1 day brewery tour]
What the ..? Clean, HUGE..modern, bustling with every walk of life (families included), loud with conversation. My wife and I met my sister and her BF for a couple drinks and a quick bite to eat. Started off with a couple of flights and moved on to the glass drinks. Everyone had something to eat.. the poutine fries and Oktoberfest pretzel stole the show (the chicken fingers were overcooked). They allowed a tab to be run, the wait staff/service was very good. Wound up staying for almost 4 hours. A good experience!

Great beer choices. Something for everyone. More of a restaurant feel than a "hang out and have some beers" feel.

Grew up to a town East of Hershey, so whenever I trek back to PA to visit my parents, this is where me and my son often go to with them. With that in mind, it's easy to take kids in with the selection of the food off to the back (glad they have that now-a-days). Me, well, I table up with my dad to often check out their new Scratch beer series that they're always coming up with. This facility is always clean and well kept. The walking history tour is quite legit too. Their bottles to go and paraphernalia off to the right is spot on. There's really nothing else in Hershey one needs to see for beer, to be honest.

A massive hall with large long tables. The way beer should be drank IMHO. Very touristy though. Makes sense being right next to Hershey Park. This would be an AWESOME place if in a high-population that could fill it without tourists. (Full disclosure, I was one of those tourists.)

Beer quality is good. These guys aren't afraid to pull beer they don't feel is up to par, and also not afraid to put out a ton of scratch brews. Visit quality depends on your own planning. There's a self guided "tour" which is little more than a walk down a windowed hallway with signs to read. The real tour requires ticket reservation in advance. Ours included a glass and was only a few dollars.

Service is interesting. Get your own food and water, but they'll get your beer IIRC. Very high volume at times, so expect that when thinking about bar service.

Selection is excellent. When we last visited, they had a record amount of scratch beers available to order. Tons available for growling. Probably the largest selection I've experienced at a brewery.

Food. Well, we were really excited to eat here after all the positive reviews we'd seen elsewhere. It looked delicious, and the portions were substantial. Unfortunately, both of us were left feeling ill after eating the food. I almost had to back out of the pre-reserved tour. Soured the entire visit.

Overall good place to stop if you get the chance. Good food and atmosphere. Granted you can by the case, sixer, or singles but for some reason I just wasn't that impressed with the selection. I can't give a specific reason which I guess is unfair but it's just the way I felt. I still make it a point to stop in every time I'm in town for business.

First time visiting and although I enjoyed it (didn't take the tour), it wouldn't kill me if I didn't make it back.

Food was above average and enjoyable, as were the beers. However, I was a little disappointed that I could not get Nugget Nectar in my flight. In fact, it wasn't available at all and I was told by our server that they pulled it because the batch was not a good representation of the brew. Points for honesty on that.

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.
