"Home of Yuengling beer and not much else" Pottsville by PA2AKgirl

Pottsville Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 3 photos

but, hey! That's enough!

Schuykill County. What can one say about such a place? Probably nothing you'd be able to really understand. Why is that? As part of the Coal Region of Pennsylvania, it's a place that has a website with it's own "coal speak" dictionary. I didn't really believe this until we spent time in Pottsville recently and got the pleasure of listening to a woman scream from her porch something we really couldn't understand at all. All we heard was something about jail. And we knew right then, it was going to be a very memorable day!

It is the home to Yuengling beer, though. If you aren't from the east coast of the US, this means nothing to you because it's only sold here. But it's a great lager and if you know someone who lives in this area, see if they can bring you one. You'll agree:)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Yeungling, amusing people

  • In a nutshell:Enough Yeungling and you won't be bothered by much of anything!
