Any Good Brewpubs / breweries around Hershey?

Hi guys!

Well, now "Hopsman' is lookinf for some info for brewies / brewpubs around the Hershey area.

I'm going to take some time and hit the Yeungling brewery on my from Knoeble's to Hershey, but is there any others in the area I should check out?

You are in luck, dude. The Troegs microbrewery basically abuts the park property.

Parking is a breeze, and I love their beer. Last time I was there, they had 3 IPAs on tap, 2 of which were brewpub exclusive.

It's a park/brewery match made in heaven, so have fun, my man.

The food at Troegs is also really phenomenal. It's probably my favorite thing in the whole area. Marathoning on LR being a close 2nd.

The Yuengling tour is awesome. Did it a couple of years ago while out that way on a Dorney trip. Seeing the history of the building, such as the hand dug underground cellar that kept kegs cool before the days of refrigeration, is very cool.


And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

Thanks guys! I'll be sure to hit up Troeg's at least one night while in Hershey. Heck, I may even bring some back to NH with me (along with a couple of cases of Yeungling!)

And Troegs is within walking distance from hotels as well as the outlets, so if you're there for a couple of days, you have many entertainment options.

I am ashamed of myself that I have yet to visit the Yuengling brewery.

Troegenator is my favorite beverage ever. You can never go wrong with Troegs.

Closer to the turnpike where all the hotels are, there's a Lancaster Brewing brewpub. (I think it's right next door to the Howard Johnson's.) They make a pretty mean Milk Stout there.

Troegenator is indeed a great beer. I also like their Java Head Stout and of course, Mad Elf, which sadly isn't available any time coasters are running in Pennsylvania... Maybe that's a good thing...

Never heard of Troegs nor Troegenator, but all I think of when I see these is Trogdor the Burninator. And that's awesome.

C'mon, fhqhwgads. I see you jockin' me.


Hi

Son of a batch! What did I start here?? Beer debates are almost as bad a coaster debates!

Okay. Before any blood and/or beer is spilled, I'm going to pose a fun question:

If your favorite coaster was a beer, what would it be? Also, conversly, if your favorite beer was a coaster, what would it be like?

Ride of Steel (City Beer).

Maybe Shiner (Out and) Bock?

If my favorite coaster was a beer, it'd be Troegenator because it's my favorite beer. If my favorite beer was a coaster, it'd be El Toro because it's my favorite coaster.

Honestly, I'm not even sure how to translate that question in to any sort of reasonable reply.

El Troegenato?

Hopback Amber is where it's at. That, and Nugget Nectar, but I think I might actually like Hopback Amber a bit better, since it's easier to drink in larger quantities.

I guess mine would be Inyuenglinator 305.

Two Heartline Ale.

Jesus, I feel like a dork typing that.

Dos Toros Locos: a double IPA named for my dream of dueling Toro-type coasters.
