Philadelphia, PA – Tröegs Independent Brewing recently announced two big projects currently in the works at its Hershey, PA, brewery.
New Canning Line and More Parking Coming to Tröegs
Tröegs broke ground earlier in March on a 15k-square-foot addition to the Hershey-based brewery. The added space will expand the breweries' existing packaging hall and house a new state-of-the-art canning line. Installation of the new canning line is expected to be completed in fall 2022.
"The new line will allow for separate bottling and canning," says Tröegs co-founding brother Chris Trogner. "It'll increase our canned beer's production speed, capacity, and quality. And we'll also have the ability to work on some new packaging options."
Additionally, Tröegs is adding a hundred new parking spaces to help alleviate congestion during the brewery's busiest hours of operation.
The additional spaces will allow more guests to visit its interactive production brewery, including a spacious tasting room and outside patio and beer garden areas where visitors can enjoy fresh beers and scratch-made food. The new parking lot is tentatively scheduled for completion by mid-summer 2022.
Visitors can also make reservations for a behind-the-scenes brewery tour – voted by USA Today as one of the best in the United States.
Guests can also pick up beer and other merchandise in its expansive General Store.
"We've been under construction for 25 years," says Tröegs brewmaster and co-founding brother John Trogner. "That's what we love to do – continuously improve and expand. We're always thinking about what we can do in the next year, five years, and 20 years to improve the brewery."
