Yuengling Is Now America’s Largest Brewery
Yuengling, a beer simply known as “lager” in parts of Pennsylvania (and some television commercials) now has two crowns to wear atop its hoppy head. It is America’s oldest brewery, something to brag about, but now it can boast to being America’s largest brewery.
Last week, word came down that Yuengling expansion from Pennsylvania into Ohio helped the brand overtake Sam Adams to become America’s biggest brewer. Forget about Miller, Busch and Bud – they’re all foreign owned, so they don’t count.
Congrats to the Yuengling family. Hopefully we can someday soon walk into a bar in California, ask for a lager, and be handed a Yuengling instead of the bartender looking at us like we were drunk. Oh, wait.
