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!

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.
