Thank you to everyone for coming over to our new Facebook page and LIKE-ing us.  As an extended thank you, I’ll post up even more exclusive Troegs Hershey photos.  First up I couldn’t resist posting up my personal photo from the entry to the new facility standing under what I predict will become one of the most famous places to have your photo taken.  Short of perhaps the Grand Canyon and Golden Gate Bridge, the Nugget Nectar wall at Troegs will be numero uno.  NOTE TO CHRIS, JOHN & ED:  Start collecting visitor photos now to make an even more amazing wall mural!

Up next we have a few photos from the self-guided tour area.  Of course it ends with oak barrels, but it really gives you a peek at what goes into making a Troegs beer…and yes be sure to take a beer with you as you tour…in fact there are even tables back there if you want to enjoy a beer near the oak.

Next we have a peek behind the public tour area at some of the conical fermenters and the milling area.  The milling area is pretty amazing.Troegs13Oct 2011 052  It may be a touch hard to see because the photo was taken from the upper level of the milling room, but the bag you’re looking at is actually a huge 2-story cloth-like silo for grain.  Apparently the township doesn’t allow outdoor grain silos, so everything is indoor and there are several of these bad boys in the room.  What’s also very cool here is that the blue frame not only supports the grain silo. but also weighs it.  The control panel you see allows the guys to weigh the grain in the silo and I can attest that it was sensitive enough to record my weight (in kilograms) when I sat on the frame.  Very cool.

And last..but certainly NOT least…is a little peek at the BrauKon 100bbl control console on the upper deck.  No real technical details or secrets here, but if you look in the lower left corner you’ll see what it was setup to brew.  Thanks again to everyone at Troegs….still more photos to come so keep LIKE-ing the new Facebook Page!
