I arrived right at the end of a brewery sponsored 5k run, so my experience was not likely typical. Many streets were closed, so I parked in a covered garage a couple of blocks south of the brewery, free on weekends. The brewery actually sits in the middle of a residential neighborhood just a few blocks from the town center - both are very characterful. Tasting room is actually in the sleek and modern gift shop across the street. There was a four hour wait for tours, so I didn’t partake in the full monty, but had a couple of beers instead. Worth a look. Score is low mainly because of the selection.

Das Stammhaus in PA. Führung dauert nicht all zu lang. Tasting am Ende ist nett, aber nichts rares dabei

Stopped by on a detour thru the area on a Tuesday afternoon. We were there in time for the tour, but didn’t want to commit an hour. The entrance and little gift shop area was gift enough. Just about everything you’d expect from such an historic locale. More power to ’em. (Still don’t like the beer that much, especially after visiting their Tampa place years ago.). (Brewery #664)

Went on this tour back in May 2012 coming back from Niagara Falls. People were very helpful trying to figure out town parking (terrible). Tour was an hour long, very informative. My favorite part was the old caves and prohibition stories. Two free samples at the end.

Free tour was 45 min long and interesting, see brewing on larger scale than some of the small guys. Most people were bmc drinkers and oblivious to the world of proper beer. 2 samples after. What fun.

The oldest and longest running brewery in the United States, and they still brew here. The building is old and flaunts lots of character, though touches of modernization can be seen in places. The bottling line is relatively new and the canning line newer still. At the end of the tour, enjoy your two free 4 oz samples in the bar.

This has been a dream of mine since I first started drinking Yuengling 20 years ago.This tour is 1 hour long, very informative and interesting. The tour guide was knowledgable, funny and kept our interest. She gave us time to ask questions and take pictures.Best of all, it was FREE!!This is a tour I would have definately paid for.The gift shop was overwhelming, but I got thru it.We got to meet Richard Yuengling, he was just hanging out and spent time conversing with us.This is a must stop if you love beer and history.

I have a hard time figuring out how anyone could fairly rate this tour/location any lower than a 60. If you based your rating on the actual tour and not your personal oppinion of the beer. First of all, its a spectacular 1 hour tour. FOR FREE. I would have gladly paid for it. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and acommodating. The location/Ambiance alone should be nothing lower than a 10. I mean, come on people, you are in a 200 year old building?!?! We went on a Friday, which I would recommend. We got to see them bottling the beer. We were allowed to get up close and personal and were highly encouraged to take pics. I was and am astounded how family oriented this brewery felt. At the end of the tour we got to meet Richard Yuenglin who chatted with us for quite awhile. I mean, I could have hung out here all day imagining the days when the workers pulled up in the horse and carriage. I will recommend this tour to any history buff or beer geek. There isnt much free in this world today, so that alone is something. The caves were my favorite part. To imagine that all that space was dug out with pick axes and shovels is just mind blowing. Keep your personal oppinion about Yuengling out of the equation, and I think you will find this a spectacular look back into history~
