My girlfriend and I decided that it was time to visit the new brewery; we had toured and tasted at the old location a couple years ago.
We had signed up for a tour online prior to our visit. The tour was very interesting even though brewery tours kind of all seem the same after a while. It was 5 dollars per person, which includes a special shaker pint glass and tastings while on the tour. The tour guide was very informative and definitely knew her stuff. The tour and tastings covered about an hour.
Afterwards we decided to grab a couple drinks and some food in the tap room. The room is very large and open, and there’s plenty of tables and bar space. The brewing setup is behind the bar on an elevated platform, so you can watch as the brewers work their magic. I’m not sure how crowded it usually gets; we were there on a Monday afternoon so it was relatively empty. I could imagine it getting loud if it was filled to capacity due to the high ceilings.
The Splinter Brown had been released a week or two before, and since it was limited to consumption at the brewery due to carbonation issues it had hung around for a bit. It was excellent but at 8+% we limited ourselves to one bottle to share. Since we were hungry we bought some rosemary popcorn and fries coated in a hop oil. Both were delicious. We bought a smoked chicken mole enchilada to share, which was also delicious. We wrapped up with a shared glass of the Scratch 119 Mushroom Ale. They pulled it off well; if I didn’t already know there were mushrooms in it I wouldn’t have been able to guess. The only things I might have gotten from them was a slight earthiness. It might have been my imagination though.
Overall, if I lived closer I would be by regularly. Several brewery only beers, plus their regular lineup and seasonals, give you a wide selection to choose from. The food we had was top notch and well prepared. The staff was very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend anyone in the area stop in; I know I can’t wait until my next visit.

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!

Went to Troegs for the first time and fell in love. The facility is amazing and really big. There is a massive gift shop. The tasting room is so big with beer hall style seating. The bar is big with 3 sets of taps and 1 groer filler. One of the cool features that they have is a guided tour, which I didn't get to do and a self guided tour. The bar tenders were great and helped out wonderfully. The food was good. You walk up to a cafeteria type counter with what looks like gourmet chefs. The whole set up is very informal but cool. The place is awesome. Check it out!

Another one of my favorite places to visit in the area because of the locality, spacious venue, and electrical outlets. I love coming to Tröegs to drink a few beers, read up on research articles, and write papers because it has everything I need to help propel my paper into the quality that is required in graduate school.
The food here is absolutely fantastic and creative! Never had anything I did not enjoy, you will be sure to find a surprise here!
The beer is… well Tröegs beer. It's good, nothing special, but it's brewed really well. The MAJOR and MOST important reason to visits Tröegs is to try their best beer… their SCRATCH BATCH series. Typically, the scratches are their best offering whenever available.
Go visit Tröegs for a quick bite to eat and a solid beer to wash it down.

Very creative food menu and outstanding brew selection Great atmosphere. Been there numerous times and have never been disappointed. If you enjoy quality craft beers and out of the ordinary grub, this place is a "gotta do". First class operation all the way.

Great, clean atmosphere. Great select of brews on tap. Would be a bit better if they could incorporate an actual restaurant into the place instead of just having glorified bar food.
Overall, great place and definitely check it out if you haven't already.

This place has become a real gem in the Herhsey area. The snack bar setup seems to get your your meal with very little wait, no matter how busy the place is. They are beginning to have many more Scratch beers on tap due to added capacity. Foodies will also love this place as well. I always stop in when I am in the area.

after discovering this place a couple of years ago, we purposefully routed through Hershey so we could stop at Troegs again. the space is relatively new, large & industrial - nicely laid out gift shop, expansive bar, assorted table seating, and self-guided (as well as led) tours. the only downside is that the ceilings are high/industrial so the noise can get a bit annoying.
we sampled dead reckoning (my favorite), scratch 111 (hopCyclone), scratch 112 (fest lager), perpetual IPA, scratch 113 (IPA), and dream weaver wheat. All of their beers are clean, flavorful, and memorable. bar staff is friendly. the growler fill station is efficient, not to mention their growlers do an awesome job keeping beer fresh. got a jug of dead reckoning to travel up to maine, and was amazed at how fresh & loud the pop/seal was over the course of a couple of days.

One of the best brewery/brew pubs I have ever visited.
Loud lively atmosphere. Large communal tables, big airy bar area, with dining tables set off. Bar tenders very attentive and despite the crowds I am served quickly.
9 beers available on tap - the six year rounders and three Scratch series beers. Samplers available - the six year rounders or any three. Two IPAs and a Octoberfest when I was there - hard not to sample all nine. Beers served in appropriate glassware.
Of course, Growlers to go and feels like an outsider not to have a bottle in hand - at least 25% of the people there were carrying.
On top of it all, the food is fantastic. Much to choose from, and all was great. Huge pretzel is a must and the flatbread pizza was fantastic. Not you classic pub fare, clearly thought through and creative fresh ingredients. We went back two nights in a row.
Spacious gift shop offers wares, bottles, mix-a-six, and anything you might want with a Troegs label on it.
A must visit if in the area. And worth travelling to.

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.
