Yuengling Brewery Tour

In 1829 David G. Yuengling arrived in Pottsville from Wurttemberg, Germany and started The Eagle Brewery. After two years of operation the brewery was completely destroyed by fire. A new brewery was constructed on Mahantongo Street.

In 1873 when David Yuengling's second son, Frederick, joined his father as a partner in the business it was renamed D. G. Yuengling and Sons.

Today, Dick Yuengling serves as the Chief Executive Officer for D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. He is fifth generation of the family brewing legacy. In 1985, Dick Yuengling purchased the brewery from his father Richard, Sr., after running his own beer distributorship.

Today Yuengling is known as America's oldest brewery, and is a definite must visit to experience nearly 200 years of American brewing.

Located at: 420 Mahantongo St, Pottsville, PA 17901.
