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.

Very interesting tour. It was cool to hear how they survived the prohibition days and how the business is passed on. The beer tasting at the end wasn't bad either! fun thing to do

The tour is really cool - you get to go in the brewery's old cave for cold storing beer. Tour guide was informative and gift shop and beer sampling areas were very nice.

Great day trip. The tour guide JJ was awesome and knowledgeable. Gift shop was very nice and not pricey at all. The tour ends with an awesome tasting where you can try all the flavors and birch beer if interested. Highly recommend checking Yuengling out!

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
