Cruisin’ for some brews? Hit the road to get a behind-the-scenes look—and plenty of frothy samples—at the country’s best breweries.
Yuengling Brewing, Pottsville, PA
Welcome to the country’s oldest brewery. Established in 1829, this Pennsylvania institution has survived wars, a fire, the Great Depression, and even Prohibition. Get schooled in the history of five generations of the Yuengling family—who, in an age of massive beer conglomerates, still own and operate the business—and take a trip through time when beer delivery took place by horse-drawn wagon. But the coolest draw of this historic landmark has to be the hand-dug fermentation caves that were used for storage before the advent of refrigeration. You’ll go down underground for a cool, and slightly creepy, firsthand look.
