Brewery Food & Drink
Tröegs is an American brewery located in Hershey, Pennsylvania. John and Chris Trogner founded the company in 1996. Tröegs is a craft-brewery, or microbrewery focusing their production on specialty and seasonal beers. Tröegs also is a limited distribution brewery, only distributing beer to states within proximity to maintain beer freshness.HistoryTröegs Brewery was founded in 1996 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, by brothers John (born 1972) and Chris Trogner (born 1973). The name Tröegs is a combination of a nickname derived from the surname Trogner and the Dutch word kroeg ("pub"). The brewery was originally located at 800 Paxton Street in Harrisburg. Their first keg was sold to a Harrisburg restaurant in July, 1997.Tröegs began construction of their new brewery in 2010 and moved from Harrisburg to Hershey in fall 2011. Grand opening celebrations were held during November of that year. At approximately 90,000 square feet the new brewery is about three times the size of the original facility and includes a tap house (tasting room) with a full view of the brewhouse. The tap house bar serves beer by the glass and by the growler. While most of Tröeg's beers are available "to go" (as 4-packs, 6-packs, cases, or growlers), a few have been available for consumption only in the tap room. The tap room also features an upscale "snack bar."The Harrisburg location has been decommissioned.Every year, Tröegs sponsors the Harrisburg Brewers Fest with proceeds benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Held every year along Locust and 3rd Streets in downtown Harrisburg, the festival features live music, food and beer samples from over 35 breweries.

  • First of all, Troegenator Double Bock Beer is our personal favorite. So we entered the Brewery already biased to the brand. That being said, there is so much more to the Troeg label. And you'll learn ...  more »

  • 6/3/2017 (Saturday around 4pm): THEY ARE CURRENTLY UPDATING THEIR PARKING! Many of the 1-star ratings are due to people having difficulties during the arrival and departure process. The in-between period of time where the customers are actually at Tröegs, they have a 5-star experience. You can't go wrong with their beer and German/Dutch style foods. I'm a single 20-something and this is the perfect spot to try a couple different style beers with some friends. I'm not sure why people with young children hear "microbrewery" and rate it 1-star for not being kid-friendly. The Tröegs brothers do an excellent job of providing exactly what they are known for- great beer.
  • If you're reading this, you're probably thinking of coming here. If you've had their beers, you know all you need to know. Absolutely fantastic beers, representative of many different styles. You'll find stuff on tap here that's not distributed and get some great styles that are spot on. I would uber there if you're able to because you'll want to try A LOT. I wasn't as much of a fan on the food side as I prefer the bar food. Beer is best with wings but alas no wings. Popcorn, pretzels, and fries are all well and good but who the hell goes to a brewery and orders a cheese plate? Anyway, that doesn't take away from it. The beers are great and it's definitely a destination to visit! Oh and the prices are great too. I can't remember exactly how much but my growler fill was RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP!
  • Troegs is always an amazing beer experience and has become a tourist destination in the area just like Hershey Park. Parking is a pain, the place is somehow always packed despite being very spacious, but it's just a fun time every time. Food is set up in a cafeteria style where you receive a buzzer and need to pick it up yourself, but it's almost always very tasty. The beer selection is plentiful with many different styles to choose from and you can always opt for a sampler. Great hangout with friends and highly recommended.
  • Good beer and food. Lots of scratch batches and stuff on tap that the brewers are trying out. Tour was a good one, but you have to make a reservation in advance. Only negatives I encountered: Swag in the gift shop is a little pricey. The parking just plain sucks. And a drunken local idiot tried to pick a fight with me when I wanted my seat back after returning from the restroom despite my having a beer on the bar and my jacket on the chair.
  • Tröegs is by far the best beer in the area and for miles around. Possibly one of the best breweries on the east coast. Top it off with a fantastic snack bar style menu, brew tours, atmosphere, and gift shop and you've got one of the best brewery experiences around. Parking can be limited at peak times and seating is open, but don't give up so easily on your Tröegs experience.
