Overview
More
It was the year 1829 when Americans were getting used to their newly elected president, Andrew Jackson, that 23-year old David G. Yuengling, an immigrant from Wurttemberg, Germany, settled in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, and started a brewery. Originally named the Eagle Brewery, today the Yuengling pride, symbolic of the American Eagle. Each Yuengling label bears the eagle trademark chosen by young David Yuengling so long ago. Previously located on Centre Street, current site of Pottsville's after only two years of operation. A new brewery was then constructed on Mahantongo Street, where operations continue today. The brewery remains family operated by Richard "Dick" Yuengling, Jr. and his daughters are being groomed as the sixth generation.

It's all about the timing! We got there 5 minutes before the tour started. Enough time to look around the gift shop. It appeared new. Great displays & goods for sale. The woman in the tour was very friendly. The brewery was closed so it...More

Great, informative tour! Deeper appreciation for Yuengling based off the history we learned! Free samples at the end, I really liked the India Pale Lager. Would highly recommend getting a growler at the end of your tour!

I challenge you to find a cooler brewery tour. You start out walking through the cave that was hand-dug into the side of a mountain, used in the 1800's to keep the beer cool without refrigeration. Then you move through America's oldest brewery and see...More

Parking is limited around the brewery, however, with a couple trips around the block you can find parking spots close to the tour center. If you use the parking garage down the street, plan on an 'invigoratiing' climb up the... More

Not sure, its been a while. However the caves beneath the brewery are a recent addition to the tour as they were bricked up during prohibition and the walls were breached just a short while ago. Perhaps the coolest part of... More
