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

This is a great tour. We were surprised to learn that it was FREE too! We got there early and spent about 1/2 hour in the gift shop/museum. Really cool collection of memorabilia. Free beer at the end of the tour.

This is a great tour for being free. The tour was very informative and interesting. The building and the tunnels underneath the building were also very cool. After the tour you can hang out and try 2 different Yuengling drinks. If you like beer and you're in the area looking for something to do definitely check this place out.

The drive to the brewery is beautiful, especailly in the fall! The brewery itself is all original, clearly not designed for the public, for tours, or for large groups- built to be a brewery and nothing more. It is charming, and feels like you are being welcomed in to a small family-owned business (which you are!). I think it is... More

You get to see a very old brewery in full operation, following the process from materials delivery to bottling. Noisy and fun with plenty of climbing up and down facility floors. The old brewery is built on the side of a hill, so you will need good legs to get around. The tour is complete with history making it even... More

Prior to this visit, my only experience with visiting breweries was at Anheuser Busch. This is a different kind of brewery tour. It's a small brewery and you get a real close up look at everything. At one point the guide said please don't reach out and grab a bottle. That's how close you get. The tours takes you through... More

Living in Texas, I never heard of Yuengling beer before planning the trip, they don't sell it west of Ohio. But after taking the brewery tour, and trying out a few of the samples, I will say I am now a fan and wish they'd expand to Texas. The tour was informative and fun, and you get closer access that...

This older brewery will not compare to many newer brewery tours that are available within the surrounding states. However, the history of the building is quite interesting and they give a great free tour with a couple samples of free beer. I am a fan of Yuengling, so I hope they keep on doing what they're doing! If you're near... More
