Pottsville Things to Do: 2 reviews and 1 photos
This is a great tour! You get to go through the 1st brewery and bottling plant for about a half hour and then...then the best part comes. You can to go to the "bar" where you are given two beers. It's all free too. Yuengling makes a variety of beers--the traditional lager, lager light, porter, chesterfield ale, premium and black & tan. Like I said on the intro of this page, it's a small scale brewery--what they bottle in a year, Budweiser bottles in a day. But it is the oldest brewery in America, founded and kept in the family since 1829. Originally called the Eagle Brewery, the name was changed to D.G. Yuengling and son in 1873...this explains the eagle logo. In 1999, they opened up a brewery in Tampa as well, so the distribution has increased substantially!
Personally I like the traditional lager and the black & tan.
Address: Mahantongo Street, Pottsville
