    Carlisle 2008 - Friday Yuengling Brewery Tour

    As a special event for Friday at this years Carlisle

    Thought this would be fun considering all those that leave for the Mid-west and New England with cases of Yuengling Black and Tan after Carlisle.

    We (or at least I will) will have a private tour at 2PM

    May 16th, 2008

    Yuengling - Pottsville
    5th & Mahantongo Streets
    Pottsville, PA 17901

    I will pay the $25 fee we only have room for up to 25 people.. but I think that will be plenty.

    So I will plan to leave the Carlilse Fairgrounds at 12pm.. and arrive at the Yuengling plant at about 1:30 PM..

    So if all of you coming in from the east, west or north want to route yourself through Pottsville and schedule yourself to be there around 1PM. It should be a fun time.

    We will stop go to Hoss' Steakhouse in Carlisle on Friday Night.

    Yeah, what about us? Since the vote for making GA a dry state ended 8,600,000 : 2 (Gene and me) , I take every chance to go inside a brewery. Even if it means the extra 60 or 90 miles on Friday :banghead:.

    Well I assumed you would be the ones that meet us at Carlisle and come up with us to the plant. Since you would be passing that way already.

    Make sure your e-brakes are working. Pottsville is very hilly. Don't stay in Centralia too long or your tires will melt.

    BTW, yes they have a sampling room There is a Cabela's located at Route PA 61 and I-78. Another nice place to stop.

    About 5,000. The Cabella's on Rt. 78 is a sporting goods store the size of a small city.
