HERSHEY, Pa. - Hershey, long known as a chocolate-themed family fun destination, is also earning a reputation as a great beer city. "Livability.com" just ranked it No. 9 in its "Best Beer Cities" listings for 2014. Ed Yashinsky, general manager of the multiple award winning Troeg's Brewing Company, describes his tasting room in Hershey.

"You walk into a 5,000-square-foot room, and the entire brew haus is right there in the room with no glass separating you from it," says Yashinsky. "You can watch our brewers work, you can watch our packaging teams work, you can watch people doing their jobs while you're having a beer."

'Livability.com' also ranked Hershey highly because it says its residents consume beer at higher rates than the average American, they have what it calls "sophisticated beer tastes," and the town offers a high quality of life for beer-lovers.

Yashinsky says coming to Troeg's offers a different experience from other beer venues.

"It's really designed to come in, taste beer," he says. "We have a snack bar with food that's designed to complement the beer but a lot of stuff is made from scratch, and a lot of stuff that's pretty unique for the region."

Top honors went to Bend, Oregon, at No. 1, followed by cities from every part of the country.
