I figure since I have visited this place about 100 times since they opened over a year ago it might be time to sit down and actually write up a review.
The atmosphere is hard to describe. The space is huge with people sitting all over the place. The large bar area and the big beer hall table seem to be peoples favorites, with the outside seating area getting a lot of use in the warmer weather months. The walking tour is a really cool feature and the general store sells any and all things Troegs for people looking for some swag or to buy some beer to go, just be aware that the general store closes before the bar area does.
The service has been hit or miss since the day they opened. I used to have to wait a LONG time to get even the simplest of service but I have to say it has definitely improved over the last few months. The wait times have become shorter and they have finally hired some people who know what they are talking about...
The quality is top notch. The beers are, for the most part, world class and the food is all made with the highest grade ingredients. They use all the correct glasses and they have a counter pressure filler for growlers, however they will still fill screw tops off the taps.
The selection is what you would expect for a brewery. They have their six flagship, year round beers on at all times to go along with a few of the seasonal offerings. They also usually have at least one scratch beer on, sometimes up to 3-4 depending on how fast they are selling / making them.
The snack bar is a new thing they have been doing for the last six or so months. They offer quite a few different things to eat, enough to satisfy most picky diners. I have tried about 2/3 of the menu now, altho it is ever changing, and it is all excellent. A few of my current favorites would include the large brewers pretzel, the pork confit tacos and the crispy pork belly. The prices at the snack bar are a little high for my taste but most of the items are worth it.
Overall a HUGE upgrade over the old harrisburg location and a welcome addition to the area. I look forward to visiting the brewery for many years to come.

What a way to spend the day. Drop the kids off at Hershey Park and then you can run a couple miles up the street to have a beer. Very large tasting and eating room. Warehouse size. You can go on a guided tour of the brewery or just look at everything through the glass windows. Part of the brewery tour goes over your head in the tasting room. Decent sized gift shop. I enjoyed my visit and if you are anywhere within a 100 miles of it you should make a point to visit.

A regular stop whenever we are in the Harrisburg/Hershey area. Biergarten-like atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. Cafe area off to one side of the large bar (where they will page you when your order is ready) that features sandwiches and entree’s. Beer selection included many of their year round brews as well as their scratch series that is always changing. Brewery tours and a large gift shop round out the experience. Nice people, too.

Stopped by to see friends on the way back to Pittsburgh over Christmas. Place was packed but still manageable. Very new industrial feel. All the standard stuff with a few special beers to order. Food was decent as well.

Right next to Hershey Park. This is a big open space that is set up in the German fashion of seating with benches. It had a modern industrial feel to it and was quite noisy and crowded. The food was good. My wife and I both got cod and potato cakes. It was spicy and tasty. I had the three Scratch beers for samplers and all were solid offerings. They have about 6 of their year round offerings that can also be had as samples or full pours. This is a big place and has a lot going on. No wait staff comes to tables so you have to order from one counter for food and another for beer. Very busy place!

Stopped in before hitting up Hershey Park. Large open space, excellent artwork gives it a good vibe. Despite the name the "Snack Bar" is anything but. The food is excellent especially the fondue. Selection is so-so with all their year round beers and 4-6 Scratch releases (which are very IPA centric it seems) Would have loved to see more variety than 75% Pale Ales/IPAs. Would definitely stop back if in the area.

Selection is rated too high in this review, but I needed to get the numbers up a little. This was a great experience. The service should o mild be a 12, but it made me stop at 10. Good beer. In credible atmosphere and staff that bends over backwards.

Just beyond the brewery, the hallway makes one feel that they may be lost in a corporate office building. Once inside it is much more hip, with a large bar, and a small cafe setting further in the back. A good variety of taps with almost all of their offerings. They also offered a couple of large format, limited bottles, including a sour. The service was pretty decent, but we went in within an hour of last call, which was very abrupt... very. The 2 giant paintings on the wall were really interesting, especially the black and white Troegenator one. Also the loft behind the bar overlooking the tops of the kettles was very modern-industrial looking, but very clean and well maintained looking.
