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!

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!

I went to Troegs with several of my buddies (but not Harry) on a Saturday afternoon in March. We got in at around 2 and the place was already packed. The parking lot was pretty big, but we had to park on the grass. You walk in to a beer hall-like setting with a bar spanning one entire wall and the rest of the room filled with long (20+ person) tables and a few smaller tables. They have all of their year round and current seasonals on tap, as well as one or two scratch beers at any given time. They offer full pours, tasters, and growler fills to go. The gift shop offers all of their current lineup to go in six packs, including the scratch beers. As far as I know, this is the only place to get the scratch beers in bottles. The pour sizes are generous and pricing is very reasonable (I was drinking 20oz. Nugget Nectars for ~$5). They have a limited menu of deli sandwiches and snacks, but we were not there for the food. There is a self-guided brewery tour which is basically a few hallways with glass walls so you can look in and see the brewing process. We all enjoyed this as it gave us a chance to walk around and get our of the crowded bar area. They encourage taking your beer along on the tour. It was nothing special but it did give a decent description of what you were looking at via posters and visuals. The barrel aging area was pretty cool (although I have never seen a barrel aged Troegs beer?). The bar area got pretty crowded by mid-afternoon and it got diffficult to fight your way in to get a beer. Overall, a very good way to spend a Saturday afternoon with some great beers at a reasonable price. The atmosphere was friendly and everyone was there to enjoy delicious beer. If you are in the area, I would definitely recommend stopping by, but I wouldn't travel hours to go there.

I drive through Hershey several times a year, but I finally had a reason to stop when Splinter Gold bottles were available for on-site consumption a few weeks ago. I was pretty impressed by how nice the place is. It is huge, and was relatively crowded mid-afternoon. Sat at the bar and had very attentive service. All I had was the bottle of Splinter Gold, but the selection appeared to be just the basic Troegs offerings plus one Scratch Beer that wasn't particularly appealing.

Love the beer the troeg brothers put out. The new tasting room is perfect. I like the idea of going up to order at a snack bar versus having a traditional dining room with servers. It keeps it very casual and easy going. Actually a great place to take the kids. My kids love the fries and grilled cheese and they can be as loud as they want.

Reviewed from notes. Attended here on December 29th, 2011.
A/Q: The atmosphere was more than adequate with large beer tasting area as well as a fair amount of tables to sit down and eat your food and drink your beer. The bar was long enough to house several bachelor parties at once. The walls have a fair amount of Tröeg's artwork.
S: The service was good. With the amount of people that were there that day, the servers got me and my brother our sample beers within a good amount of time. There isn't any table service when I was there, but I didn't think that was a big deal.
S: The selection was more than adequate which pretty much had all of their regular beers on tap. The gift shop pretty much had anything you want known to beer-mankind.
F/V: I didn't eat any food since it was in the middle of the afternoon. I would definitely go back here when visiting my family. The prices were about right for the Southern PA area.

Took a trip out to Hershey Park and decided that I needed to stop in to see the new location since they moved from Harrisburg. The Place is much larger than the old facility very spacious and had self guided tours, a large bar area and a decent sized dining area as well. The place is a very clean and obviously very new looking. The greeter was awesome, he told us everything we needed to know about the place and made us feel very welcome there. The bartenders were very busy and not as attentive as they could have been. Took a little while just to get a couple beers. The food menu looked pretty good but we didn't order any. The selection was really nice there, all the regular year round brews including the summer seasonal and something like 8 scratch beers on tap as well. Overall it's a pretty ice place and if I ever find myself out in Hershey again I'll be sure to stop in and have a few more rounds.

Decided to stop in the new Troegs facility on my last trip to Al's/Pizza Boy. It's a nice atmosphere, with a quasi post-modern industrial feel, a bit sterile (it is pretty much brand new after all) and not at all intimate, but it's got a fun vibe to it. I'd imagine it's slamming during busy hours, and with a large bar and a massive area for sitting or standing, I'm sure they can accommodate. And with Hershey park about a quarter mile away, they're really in a premium zone. What's nice is the separate gift shop where they offer beer sales as well as all the merch you can imagine, from stickers to glassware to frisbees.
Troegs has always made good quality beer, so there's no problem there. As far as selection goes, it's basically their year rounds and whatever seasonal may be around. So there isn't a lot to choose from, but there's enough to keep you happy if you like their beer. Some brewpub exclusives would up the selection rating.
Service is fine, and everyone is generally in tune to the brewery's operations and the beer scene in general. It looks like they have sort of a snack bar set up, as far as food goes, and I didn't bother sampling anything.
Troegs is definitely worth stopping in if you're in the area, but it's not a place I'd regularly visit. Not that it's bad, but everything they offer on tap and in bottles is readily available at pretty much all my local hangouts. And with no brewpub exclusives or real food service, it's just not enough to justify my going out there regularly. Though I am looking forward to seeing what the Splinter release is going to be like.
