Field Trip: Tröegs Brewery / Newport Folk Fest

It’s been a long and busy couple of months since we’ve graduated and been able to focus on the company full-time. And if you’ve been following some of our recent updates, you already know that we have a lot of awesome stuff planned for the next few months as well. A quick vacation is the perfect intermission to our hectic summer.

Our annual pilgrimage to the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island has once again arrived, and this year we decided to take a bit of a field trip on the way: the Tröegs Brewery in Hershey, PA. Roughly four hours outside of Pittsburgh, the brand new 100-barrel Tröegs facility is absolutely stunning… massive, shiny, surgically clean, well-designed, and well-laid-out. It has an expansive taproom and café area, serving small plates of excellent food to pair with their selection of flagships and experimental Scratch beers. The brewery/tasting tour (led by tour coordinator Andrea Lewis) was one of the best brewery tours we’ve ever been on, focusing mainly on the brewing process itself and on all the bells and whistles of the new facility.

It’s way too early for us to be setting such lofty goals, but Tröegs is the perfect example of where we want to see ourselves as a company someday.
