The story of Yuengling is the story of the American Spirit. It's a tale of shared dreams, individual tenacity and an unwavering dedication to standards of quality. Like many American stories it starts amid the dreams of countless young immigrants looking for opportunity and emerges from the strength and will of one family determined to build their legacy in a new country.

The story of America’s Oldest Brewery began when David G. Yuengling arrived from Wuerttemberg Germany to settle in the sleepy, coal-mining town of Pottsville, Pennsylvania. In spite of the demise of countless breweries throughout the country, Pennsylvania's popular Yuengling Brewery survives as a thriving business and historic treasure.

The D.G. Yuengling and Son Brewery is located in Pottsville, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. It proudly boasts a supreme record of continuous operation since 1829.

It is the longest constant history of management by a single family in the country.

Yuengling’s CHP system is craft brewing industry leading sustainability technology. The success of Yuengling Brewery throughout many years of history is because of the Yuengling family’s determination.
