About Us

We like to think of our little corner of the brewing world as the “wayward home for the perpetually curious."

It’s no accident that “independent” is our middle name. Being independent means we’re able to push our own boundaries, have a little fun and focus on the long-term health of the brewery. We don’t have anyone to answer to other than our customers and our co-workers, and that means we can do what’s right for you and what’s right for our beer.

We’ve been at this for 24 years … and it’s only the beginning.

Nice to meet you.

We’re a bunch of family, friends and kindred spirits who share a love of great beer. Together, we make Tröegs.

Founded in Pennsylvania in 1997 by brothers John and Chris Trogner, Tröegs is driven by a sense of adventure and curiosity.

You might know our Perpetual IPA, the best-selling IPA in Pennsylvania. Or the dark, malty and crisp Tröegenator. Maybe you’ve tried one of the hundreds of experimental Scratch Series beers we’ve brewed. Or taken the “Best Brewery Tour in America” here at our Hershey home.

Whether you’re already a member of our extended family or you’re just getting to know Tröegs, there’s always something new to discover. Crack a Perpetual and stay awhile.

Family-owned. Independently crafted.

In the past 24 years, Tröegs has grown from two brothers to 250 people, but we’re still very much a family business. Because we stay true to our core values of independence and family ownership, we’ve kept the small-brewery DNA we all hold dear.

Perpetual exploration

Our small-batch Scratch Series and 3-barrel Scratch Lab are where we do the work needed to understand the “why” at the intersection of ingredients, technique and flavor.

Local ingredients

We live and brew in fertile central PA, and we’re proud to support our local farmers. Every year, we buy more than 225,000 pounds of local grain, honey and fruit to use in our beer.

Community

From bike rides that fund local trails to new beers that help preserve critical forests, our partnerships improve the places where we live, work and play.

24+ years (and counting)

Tröegs has grown from two brothers to about 250 co-workers. We’ve loved every win, every challenge and every beer along the way.

GOOD BEER BRINGS OUT THE GOOD IN PEOPLE

Whether we’re working on a new beer recipe, building a seasonal menu, or deciding how to serve our community, the first question we ask is: Why? When it comes to ‘aletruism,’ asking why helps us focus our priorities and the ways in which we serve the people, places and resources who’ve helped us along the way.

ART OF TROEGS

The drive to create is behind everything we do here at Tröegs. And for as long as we can remember, Tröegs fans who share that creative spirit have been making art with our bottle caps, labels and cans. And many Art of Tröegs alum are behind the signs, murals and beer labels you know and love.

CAREERS

Tröegs Independent Brewing was founded in 1996 by brothers Chris and John Trogner. From the beginning, our brewery has been built by family, friends and kindred spirits who share a love of great beer.
