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 !!!

I only live 3 miles from the original Yuengling brewery and make a point of taking any of my out of town friends or family there when they visit. I enjoy the tour just as much each time I go, because as with any tour, the guide sets the tone and each has their own fun tidbits of trivia, which... More

Friday morning at 10AM, around 50 strangers showed up to go on the tour of America's Oldest Brewery. People were from all over the country. Tip: Make sure you wear closed toe and heeled shoes. Our tour guide was lively, informative and fun with bad jokes and all. We followed her upstairs and downstairs and into and out of a... More

We stopped by Yuengling on the way between Cooperstown and Gettysburg. We arrived with enough time (tours are at 10 AM and 1:30 AM) to wander around the gift shop before gathering for the tour. We were shown the facility and told lots of interesting facts about the company. Afterwards we were treated to two small glasses of Yuengling beers.... More

Looking for something fun and interesting to do? Make the trip to visit and tour this brewery, you won't be disappointed! We went on a Saturday - we'll be going back during the week to see them 'running' - and had a great time. The staff is wonderful, the tour is FREE and the beer is tasty! Highly recommend visiting...

This tour was well worth it, and even better, it's free! The history here alone was very interesting. If you go, try to get there on a weekday when the production line is going. We went on a Saturday so the plant was quiet but there was plenty to see. We got two samples each at the end and it... More
