TAMPA, Fla. — Yuengling, "America's Oldest Brewery," is expanding its massive Tampa campus into a future family destination.

The beer giant, which started brewing its lager in the bay area in 1999, will open a massive entertainment complex on its property right around the corner from Busch Gardens.

Set to open in Fall 2022, Yuengling's spacious new party zone will feature restaurants, bars, a concert stage, museums, brewery tours and more.

"Now's the time when we want to reach out and hug the community," says Brent Wertz, Yuengling's vice-president of hospitality.

Yuengling's Tampa brewery is capable of putting out 1.2 million bottles of beer a day. The local location is responsible for quenching the thirst of Florida and the Southeastern U.S.

Currently there are no public tours of Yuengling's Tampa brewery.
