  • Must do brewery tour! Goes through not only the whole process of actual brewing but also incorporates an extensive history. Viewing the original caves is worth it! Highly recommend and it’s free...

  • The Yuengling Brewery Tour is Outstanding!! Fun and Informative. Knowledge Guide. So interesting to see and hear the History about the Caves & Prohibition. Seeing how Yuengling is made and bottled. The Tasting Room has pictures of Athletes, Celebrities, and Politicians along with being able to sample the various Seasonal & Premium Beers is an experience in itself. Then stroll through the Yuengling Gift Shop. If in the area of Hershey, Reading, or I-81 stop in Pottsville and take the Hour Tour. Trust me it's a True Hidden Gem, you won't be disappointed
  • Yuengling Traditional Lager is my favorite beer. My wife and I toured this brewery on our honeymoon and it was an awesome experience. The brewing is mostly done in underground caves connected by tunnels. We toured the brewery as well as sampled some beers some of which were not not available yet in stores, like their mango beer. They incredible beer but unfortunately it is not sold where I live. When one of my siblings visits from back East they always bring Yuengling with them, as I, my dad, and brother all love their beer. The Yuengling brewery is the oldest brewery in the US and fun fact, before the Prohibition, they used to have a large tap somewhere on the side of the brewery where locals would come and could get as much beer as they wanted for free. Totally worth checking this brewery out if you are in the area, and don't forget to try their beer. My wife bought me a Yuengling baseball cap from the gift shop when we were there in Nov. 2020, and I still wear it every day. I have lots of people in my area recognize the name and ask where I got the hat.
  • I worked at a brewery for years and really downplayed in my mind what I could be shown ..boy was I wrong. The age and character of this brewery and all the stories that come with it is worth the time on the road it takes to get there. Which by the way, is worth mentioning as well: Pottsville and much of the way leading to it is just as fun to see. Our tour guide was Stephen. He did a wonderful job giving us a history lesson and being the curator the brewery deserved. You get two generous samples out of eight options at the end of the tour. Additional pints are available for purchase at an incredibly reasonable $3. Snacks available in the tap room as well. The gift shop is vast, try to contain yourself!
  • I have to say, the free brewery tour was worth the trip. Our guide provided a wealth of information about the history of the brewery. The tour is open to all ages. Be prepared to walk up and down stairs. No open toe shoes such as flip flops or Crocs are allowed.
  • The Yuengling Brewery tour and tasting has to be the best there is. The brewery is a fantastic blend of the old original structure updated with modern equipment. It is fascinating and educational, a snapshot into the past while firmly settled in the present and an eye to the future. Tours every 30 minutes, well-run and organized, and all the Yuengling-branded merchandise a fan could want. My second trip to Pottsville and Yuengling.
