Yuengling Brewery, Pottsville, PA

The factory tour of the oldest brewery in America, is a worthwhile stop for all but the tea-est of totalers. The caves used to cool the beer in the 1800's are still to be seen, as well as the fed's prohibition era brick walls that closed them off from use. Our guide Joann was as amusing as the subject was interesting. Plus, I've really gained a taste for that Pennsylvania working-mans brew -- could it be in my genes?

As long as the last remaining few hold out, each tourist gets a poplar bung as a souvenir of the tour. But Joann says that won't be true much longer.

Super well-worth a stop when you are in the area.
