Attraction details
Owner description: Tröegs Brewing Company was founded by Chris and John Trogner. Since 1997, the brothers have been handcrafting world-class beers that combine traditional English brewing techniques with the eclecticism of new American brewing. While only available in the Mid-Atlantic region, Tröegs Brewery is known nationwide for their award-winning Troegenator Double Bock, highly-desirable seasonal releases like Nugget Nectar and The Mad Elf, and brewery-only beers like the Scratch and Splinter series. Tröegs Brewery in Hershey, Pennsylvania provides guests with a complete brewing experience. The brewhouse is located in a 5,000 square foot tasting room that opens onto a beer garden. Visitors are able to observe the brewing process firsthand, and take a self-guided tour along a window-lined hallway for a close-up view of the entire brewery.

“Beer Heaven”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

If you are in the Harrisburg / Hershey area and you enjoy craft beer, this is a must! Not only does the brewery offer tours, but they also feature an amazing tasting room fully loaded with all their brews and even some brewery only Scratch beers. The tasting room also features a cafeteria like food kitchen. The set up is the only thing cafeteria though, the menu itself is creative, fresh, local and delicious for just a snack or an entire meal. Lastly don't forget the general store where you can not only buy shirts, glasses, and other trinkets, but you can buy their beer! I highly recommend stopping in, you'll no doubt have a great time.

“Excellent tour/atmosphere”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We paid $5 for the guided tour and it was well worth the money, but if your visiting on a saturday plan this well in advance and make reservations, the guided tours can fill up fast. We tasted grains, beer that was still in the fermentor and then 3 samples at the end of the tour. And we received an "official beer taster' glass. Our tour guide was informative and answered our questions. We also enjoyed the beer hall atmosphere of the bar, but I only gave this 4 stars because we feel like there should be more food options. We knew going there that there were not many 'big plates' of food and so we planned on getting appetizers and eating elsewhere. But we enjoy the atmosphere and would like to have the option of eating dinner there. The bar was a very large room but was not overly loud like some other beer halls we have visited. Well worth the visit.

“A must see!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Troegs. Staff was friendly and the beer was excellent!! Not only do I love Troegs new facility, but really enjoyed the guided tour. The tour is $5.00pp and takes you behind the scenes on the process of brewing beer. You can taste beer in it's early stages as well as sample beer at the end of the tour. You also get a Troegs pint glass. Unfortunetly, we didn't have any room to taste their food. We are looking forward to going back soon!

“Just Right!”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We travel to Hershey frequently and were thrilled to see this addition to the town! We have two kids under five, and Troegs was very family friendly. My husband and I enjoyed tasting different types of beer, while the girls played at and by our table. The room is huge and the atmosphere is jolly and busy. Although their menu is basically a tasting menu it doesn't minimize the experience at all. Saw folks taking the tour and it looked cool! We go back each & every time we're in town! Hopback is my fave!
