The tour was really great! Our guide, I believe Elaine, was friendly, courteous, funny, and extremely knowledgeable about the Yeungling family, the brewery background and the brew techniques. She absolutely made the tour as nice as it was. Going down into the original cave and understanding how the beer was made in the 1800's was very interesting and certainly gave... More

Who says you shouldn't drink before noon? We had a marvelous time touring the original Yuengling brewery. Learned a lot & loved the cave as well as the samples at the Rathskeller. JJ did a terrific job.

Loved visiting this little town and brewery filled with so much history. You really get up close and personal to the process. THE CAVES ARE INCREDIBLE! samples were awesome. We were able to sample several that are not available in our area. JC was a great guide...full of information and energy! Can't wait to return. The gift store was fantastic.... More

I met my friends at the brewery who were driving from Wisconsin and are avid Yuengling fans. They can't purchase Yuengling there so this was a must stop on their trip. It has a very good gift shop where there are a wide aray of shirts and other logo souveniers. Our tour guide was Stacy and she was excellent and... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to NYC. The tour was awesome and worth the trip! The brewery is currently constructing a museum section which will we will return to see. The free samples are sweet too : )

It's Americas oldest brewery! You get to walk through the old caves under the building. It's a very interesting tour and you get 2 samples at the end. It's a must if you are a fan of beer and history. I highly recommend the Porter and Black and Tan. Have fun stay and look around.

We didn't take the tour due to a bit of a time crunch but the museum in the gift shop is impressive. The old signs and brewing equipment were fun to see.

We toured the brewery and appreciated the authenticity of the place. Glad to see an American owned brewery doing so well.
