The brewery to visit if you are interested in history. Out of all the brewery tours I've been on, the only on where you get to go into a lagering cave which was walled off by the government during prohibition. Gift shop has everything Yuengling that you could think off. Stop at Maroons for lunch or dinner and get a few Yuenglings, because you do only get one small sample at the end of the tour.

Yuengling brewery is a brewery filled with huge history and the tour is very informational not really focusing on there types of beer but more on there history and there process. The brewery is pretty large for being so old. the gift shop is full of items to purchase its like being a kid in a candy store. The one major draw back is they only give you one sample of one beer. overall its an awesome brewery

Yuengling...what can you say? A pilgrimage was made to the Mecca of beer. Touring the old plant was fabulous. All of the history & heritage was incredible. From the depths of the cellar to the bottling line it was certainly a worthwhile trip. Make sure you're in good shape as there is a lot of stair climbing. The only complaint was the one sample they allowed for consumption at the end of the tour. You can also purchase your Yuengling memorabilia in the gift shop.

You won't go to Pottsville for any other reason than to visit America's Oldest Brewery. The tour on Saturday was crowded, probably 100 folks stretching out. Our tour guide provided a very interesting tour, based on Yuengling's history, not on the brewery. Having toured several breweries I appreciated not being shown a bunch of stainless steel vessels and being told what wort is. The history is there but you can sense this location is only kept open to maintain the PR value of the oldest tag. I'd say the tour was worth the trip but the remote location might give one pause to make the journey. Oh, only a single 12 oz sample at the end but a local bar, Maroons had $1 pints.
