  • I still don't really understand how beer is made but it nice to see all the machines and the facilities. It's a good tour and well worth the visit if you're in the area. It lasts about an hour. You...  more »
  • I’ve always heard this was a good tour, but never had the opportunity to make the trip. Besides, I’ve been on multiple brewery tours, what could be so special? Well, this is the original brewery. A.....  more »
  • This Tour is FREE and you get 2 samples of beer per person. You get to try some beer that is only local. I think our guide was Charlotte Ann...not sure, but she was funny and a great tour guide. She.....  more »

  • We are fans of Yuengling beer so coming to the brewery was high on our list when we happened to be close by. The tour was great as well as the gift shop. I especially enjoyed the free tasting after the tour was over. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and we had a really good time. One thing to note is you have to have closed toe shoes to be allowed to go in the tour. If you don’t have a pair you are able to purchase some at the gift shop for a fair price.
  • Such a fun experience! Tours run every hour until 3pm and are FREE! The staff is so nice and our tour guide was fantastic. You get to walk through the tunnels and walk through the production area and see the cans being filled and boxed for shipment. The tour ends in a cute little bar area where you get a free tasting of whichever beer they have to offer. If in the area, you should check it out. It costs nothing. Parking is a little tricky but they have a small stone lot down the hill behind the building. Make sure to have closed toe shoes and be prepared to walk some stairs.
  • Despite one very rude employee we had a wonderful time touring the brewery. We took a trip out to the brewery this past Monday; our tour guide Amber was knowledgeable and friendly. The two tastings afterward were a nice finish to the tour. I grew up in NJ and my husband and I love Yuengling. We now live in Texas where they do not sell it. Visiting the brewery with family was a real treat for us. We brought my son along who’s almost 4. He behaved wonderfully during the tour and enjoyed a tasting of birch beer at the end. The only issue we had was when we checked in for our tour at the front desk. A woman around 50 with dark hair said I would have to hold him during the tour, which I understood and did. When I turned my back she said, “this isn’t a babysitting service.” My mother and I both heard this statement and considered leaving but decided not to let her bad attitude spoil our day. I guess I’m used to Texas now, where most breweries and wineries are family friendly. Regardless, we enjoyed everything else, including the large gift shop!
  • This is the oldest brewery in America. The free tour tells how it all started, what happened during during Prohibition and a detail of all the brews offered. This is an operating facility. The gift shop offers many items with the Yuengling logo and yes, there is beer for sale. The tour ends with a free sample. Birch beer is available for non drinkers. You must be 21 and wear closed toe shoes to go on the tour.
  • Love the tour! Love the store! Love the Beer! I’ve been 3 times and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Already have plans on going back at the end of July.
