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.

Having been born in Pottsville and a huge fan of Yuengling beer, I finally took the tour of this historic brewery. Back in the day we could not get this beer in New York but having relatives there brought many visits so I would buy...More

We visited the brewery on our way from NY to Pittsburgh. We stopped because it was listed in the 1000 places to visit before you die. The admission is free but I would have been more than happy to pay for this very interesting tour....More

If you're in the region, it's certainly worth a stop since Yuengling is very much a part of the local history. Just note that although Pottsville is a cute old town that's worth exploring a bit, there doesn't seem to a be a ton else...More
