INFORMATIVE LOCAL BREWERY TOUR
Dec 2019
Looking for something to do in Tampa which is complimentary and offers tasting samples? Yuengling Brewery offers free tours of their Brew Factory many times a day so, the Kid and I were in!
Yuengling IS the oldest Brewery in the US! It originally began in Pottsville, Pa in 1829, that's 191 years old.
YEP! It beats out it's Budweiser, the competition by several years. BW was "born" in 1852. The Eagle is original to Yuengling and when BW decided to sue Yuengling for the Eagle copyright, BW lost.
Back to the tour. The tour is very casual but, organized. Meet in the Guest Center, sign in the guest book, grab a wristband and then wait for the tour to begin. While waiting, one can browse the Gift Shop, walk the grounds or enjoy a beer before the Tour.
A short oral presentation along with a short film is given at the beginning of the tour. You will be split into smaller groups (no more than 20 people) so, you can hear the Guide's complete description as you move from building to building. HEADS UP: NO photos are allowed in the interior except for the Guest Center. Yuengling is very sensitive to their formula and processing. It's ok, cause you can still take some great exterior photos.
The tour last for about 90 minutes. There are stairs and it's all walking so, wear comfy shoes. Parking is also FREE. Q & A's are encouraged!
After the tour, you can enjoy popcorn and 2 complimentary samples back at the Guest Center.
Great 1st date!

The rums were great even the coconut one which I definitely was ready to not like being I don't usually like coconut but the coconut flavor wasn't over bearing. I liked their rums so much I ended up buying 6 bottles when I only planned on buying 1 but it was too hard for me to choose only 1

Interesting tour and then the sampling room. Try different Yuengling brews, but do it quickly. You get about 10 minutes before they close uo for the next tour group!

Knowledgeable tour guides tell the fascinating history behind Yuengling

Reserve your tour in advance to guarantee your time. If not, you'll sit in the Tasting Room, waiting for the next available tour. Not a bad strategy because you can sample the fine beer selection fresh from the tap (or bottle). We've visited on Fridays when brewing activities are slow (not much production going on), but then you get to spend more time in the Tasting Room. All tour guides are very nice, efficiency minded, and very well informed about Yuengling history and products. This brewery is better than any micro-brewery or craft brewery in Tampa.

Tours are temporarily on hold while they build new things!

It seems the tours are currently halted while they do some upgrades so be sure to check the website before arriving. When we went before the tour was free and kids were welcome on the tour. The tour guide was fun and very knowledgeable. We got firsthand answers to questions. Adults can get free samples after the tour.

Rumor has it they’re adding a hotel, probably a beer garden and maybe other things on the existing property. So excited about what is to come. This is very close to Busch Gardens, USF, MOSI or the Lowry Park Zoo so it can easily be paired with the day’s activities.

Good tour.

Knowledgeable tour guide and didn’t take too long. Make sure and show up a few minutes before tour time schedule. Enjoyed trying the different Yuenling beers. The light and Black and Tan have become my favorites.

Wonderful Brewery Tour
Mar 2019 • Friends
Very conveniently located at same highway exit for Busch Gardens. It’s a very straight forward tour with wrap up in the tasting room. Our tour guide, Sofia, was both informative and fun.
At free, the price is right too.

This tour was very informative and fun. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and was able to keep us entertained and educated without making the tour dry. The girls in the hospitality center let me fly my drone, and take some aerial pictures and video of the brewery!

Exceptional Tour Guide
Mar 2019 • Friends
We decided to do something different this past weekend on Friday afternoon and went on a tour of the Yuengling Brewery in Tampa. We showed up a little late, but the tour guide (I am sorry I do not remember her name) was amazing. She helped us get caught up to the group and was very informative and entertaining. She understood the product, the company and the amazing culture that they have been able to create within their company. We were able to see some canning going on, and we couldn’t believe the cleanliness and hours that are put in to make a such a great product. This was a very informative tour and we are so glad that we went. Our tour guide was amazing and made all of the difference. I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of Yuengling and is in the area.
