Yuengling Brewery Tour Review
Some years ago I visited Pottsville, PA and took either my first or maybe second tour of a brewery ever. I picked a great one in what is the America’s oldest brewery in a very picturesque little town. The town is in Pennsylvania which means the town and the brewery tour have some hills. Like many tours it takes you through the various steps of the brewing process and if I can ever upload it, I will show the awesome bottling line that you get to walk through (up close and personal).
Since this tour I have done many others where the “vibe” was a bit more free spirited (Lakefront Brewery and Dogfish Head come to mind) but it still is a great tour and brewery to visit.

While some tours are free, not all are. You will also notice that some give you A TON of beer along the way while others give you barely any. Some will give you a branded glass. In some cases you will get multiple beers AND food – it really just depends and so does the price.
- You get some samples of beer at the end of the tour
