Troegs Brewing Company, Hershey, November 2012

If you’re brainstorming for places to visit with out-of-town relatives, consider Tröegs Brewing Company in Hershey, Pennsylvania, recently named Mid-Sized Brewery of the Year by the Great American Beer Festival.

In the tasting room, sample Tröegs’ famed Mad Elf Christmas ale brewed with honey, cherries, and a spicy Belgian yeast to put yourself in the holiday spirit while noshing on goodies from the Central Pennsylvania-inspired Snack Bar menu, such as the bratwurst and red potato salad sandwich, $8, or the local artisan cheese plate with honey, jam, and toast, $11.

Go behind the scenes with a self-guided or guided brewery tour (free, or $5 for a 45-60 minutes plus a tasting and commemorative glass, reserve online); then browse the gift shop for T-shirts, local delicacies, glassware, cases, six-packs, and more.
