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.

I was in Pottsville working today and decided to check out the FREE brewery tour of America's oldest brewery. Tips: Bring quarters to park, and walking shoes. Tour is in and out of several buildings, so bring appropriate jacket as necessary. Finding the address wasn't so hard, but locating the gift shop is a little confusing, as it is up... More

Great tour and history! A must see when in the area! Remember to wear closed toed shoes and you might want to take a jacket for your visit to the old cooling caves! Coming in 2015 a new gift shop in the re-purposed Yuengling Ice Cream plant!

This is a neat tour of an old, but still operating brewery. The caves are cool, the paintings are great, and the history is interesting. The beer at the end is also welcome. I tour breweries of all sizes, and this was fairly large, but nothing like the Miller or Budweiser behemoths. I think the age adds much to the... More

If you like your brewery tour with old buildings, old pipes, old caves, old beer smell, happy tour guides and a slosh of excellent Suds at the end this is the place for you. It's the real deal, an ACTUAL brewery tour. Yuengling beer is the best !!!
