The self guided tour is super lame. If you are traveling to get here, plan way ahead to book a tasting tour. The main area is crowded, loud and service is crazy hard to get, as well as getting food.

First time visiting and although I enjoyed it, 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.

Cool place, great beer selection and a good place to buy as PA's beer laws suck if you buy in a liquor store. The only bad part is the tons are in the same open area as the food so you are assaulted with the fermentation odors the entire time while you eat. That can really throw off good tasting food, so I can't tell if I liked the fare there or not.

An awesome place. They have a huge gift shop with a wide variety of items to choose from. I loved the fact that you could get a beer and then take a self guided tour. The bar area is very impressive and the selection is decent (their beers only) The prices are a little steep but that's expected due to the are (next to Hershey Park). The only down fall of the location is how loud the bar area is. Otherwise a decent place to go and see.

The new brewery is massive! We went on a weekend, and it was busy, but not too crowded. However, with large open ceilings, on a weekend, I couldn't help but notice something that sounded like power tools/saws running in the back area, for a really long period of time. I understand that they work in the same space where they have the public, but it was really really irritating after a while.

FOOD: The menu is small. The concepts are very unique and the execution is decent. Some of the items have really, really small portions, and others are GIGANTIC. My secret passion is the german potato salad, which actually is nothing like a traditional german potato salad, but hey, I like it!!

BEER: Decent selection of their normal beers, plus a few scratch beers available. Interesting bottled concoctions are available sometimes. For anyone not familiar with the brewery, they love to experiment, and have some beers that they ferment in bourbon barrels, as well as other projects. Makes for an interesting dinner. Can't remember the last one we had, but it was similar to a lambic aged in a bourbon barrel, it was damn good.

SERVICE: While the setup is counter service with pagers, the staff does go around and check on people, clean up and offer to get more beers. My only gripe, is sometimes the staff at the food counter are kinda really uncertain about the food products. With such a small menu, learning the items & ingredients should be easy enough.

Overall, pretty good, but a little pricey depending on what you order. And I miss the quaint old brewery, where I was given a tour with a small group by one of the brothers. The new place has a slight air of corporate america, BUT damn if those guys didn't bust their asses to earn it!

Nice new brewery, pub and store. But our visit here was reduced from a lunch visit to simply picking up beer from the store, since there was no parking. My wife had to circle the block while I bought the beer.

Large brewpub area, plenty of seating, but it can get crowded. Food is great, but there is no servers waiting on tables. The drafts are only troegs selections, and can be very underwelming at times. The retail shop is large, and sells their beer along with the usual shirts, pint glasses, etc.

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.
