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.

If you have never toured America's Oldest Brewery you need to. You will not be disappointed. The tour is free and the gift shop has a lot of variety. You will love the free samples of the beer if you are 21.

Oldest brewery in the USA. Good tour and free samples at the end. A bit different from most brewery tours since it's so old and has so much history. Beer lovers should def do this. The town is old and very interesting to browse and...More

This would not be enjoyable fr little ones. Probably 12 yrs and older would like it. They have Big Ben's Root beer in the tasting room so the young'uns do not feel left out while the adults have the adult beverages

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
