The Tröegs Story

Tröegs was founded in 1996 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania,
by brothers John and Chris Trogner. 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 in Harrisburg. Their first keg was
sold to a Harrisburg restaurant in July, 1997.

Tröegs bega
n construction of their new brewery in 2010
and moved from Harrisburg to Hershey in Fall 2011. Grand
opening cel
ebrations 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 tasting room with a full view of the brewhouse.
The tap room also features an upscale "snack bar."

Tröegs has won multiple Gold andSilver medals at the Great
American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup.  They are
a
lso multiple winner of The Best In Philly title along with
being named First Place Winner in the United States Beer
Tasting Championship.
