The “oldest brewery in America”, D. G. Yuengling & Son traces its roots to 1829, when David G. Yuengling founded the Eagle Brewery in Pottsvile, Pennsylvania.
The business has been family owned and operated ever since, with fifth generation Dick Yuengling Jr. now in the role of president and owner.
His four daughters also work full-time for the brewery, which now operates breweries in Pennsylvania and Florida.
Adaptability has been key to the business throughout its history: during the prohibition era, it switched to producing “near-beer” products and also built a dairy and began making ice cream.
