Did the tour yesterday. Very old funky place on the steep hillside in Pottsville. Really enjoyed the nostalgia and history related to the old brewery and tour.
The hand dug cave is back on the tour for some anniversary reason. I thought it was the best part of the tour. Glad I went. Thought the Chesterfield ale in the tasting room was the least offensive. Actually had to make a face to finish off the other two samples of the Premium & Lager (I was with a friend who got some too). Nice tour but Christ the beer really sucks.

I used to work very close to the brewery and was partial to scheduling my lunch hour around the tour. So Iíll say that Iíve been on the tour enough that I could easily give it. The tour is pared down now (no more cave tours or keg room closeups) but is still a great run through. The two free brews at the end are refreshing after all those steps and hills. The gift shop is first rate and also doubles as a museum. It can get crowded and a bit noisy in some areas but a nice piece of Americana that shouldnít be missed if you are in the area.

Good olí Yuengling. Went up for the tour a while ago, and didnít see this place in here so I added it. Tour is pretty cool, huge facility, the old school caves are nice, and you learn a bit about prohibition. Big gift shop and a small tasting room witch has most of their beers on tap.
