Our tour guide provided an outstanding tour of a historic yet working brewery. Our group of approximatly 25 was treated to a very informative leader who took us through the entire process of producing, bottling and packaging beer. She has a great sense of humor and an ability to adapt to various personalities. We've toured a few other breweries but... More

We had to visit after seeing that it's not that far to drive to and being that it's one of hubby's preferred beers, it was a no brainer. The first Saturday tour of the year, a beautiful spring day (a bit chillier there) was the day to go. There are no tickets, you just show up. They band your wrist... More

We live just under two hours from the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville, PA. We decided to take a day trip and tour the brewery. It is no charge to take the tour. It lasted about 90 minutes and was very informative and enjoyable. We walked through the brewery as the beer is being made ( we were there in a... More

They set up a special private evening tour for our group of 24. Tour guide was great and funny. The buildings are amazing! It was interesting to see how the beer was made 200 years ago and now how it's made today. Great tour and beer tasting. Fun!

I have lived in the area all my life and have introduced many of my friends and work associates to the tour. They all said how much they enjoyed the visit. You should check on the scheduled tour times so you don't not have to wait. You won't be disappointed. The building is old and there are stairs and narrow... More

Great tour. About 1 hour, kid friendly 10+. Great history info about PA's oldest brewery. Several steps if you can't do steps probably not for you. Check it out, its a great story.

My girlfriend and I got to the brewery too late for the 10 AM tour so we had to wait for the 1:30 PM tour. The gift shop staff (very nice) directed us to a pizza restaurant that we could walk to. We had a nice lunch and returned for the tour which had gotten surprisingly full for a cold... More

Yuengling has been my husband's favourite beer for many years and we drive between Baltimore and Buffalo NY at least once a year. It was only a matter of time til we stopped here, and we couldn't have been happier that we did. Our tour guide was fantastic ... we had our reluctant 15 and 18 year olds with us... More

We went there on a Wednesday - and it was the perfect day since we were only 15 people on the tour. The guide was very entertaining and knew everything about the brewery and the history. The tour began and ended in the Ratskeller were we could also sample the beer.
