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.
