A case of Yuengling beer
The Story Of Yuengling Beer Actually Predates Prohibition
Yuengling brewery in Pennsylvania was founded in 1829, almost 100 years before Prohibition. David G. Yuengling, the founder, was a German immigrant who arrived from Wuerttemburg.
Yuengling’s father had been running a brewery in the town since 1816, but as the youngest child, David would never inherit the business. As such, he set off for a new life.
The brewery stands firm after nearly two centuries, with five generations of descendants carrying the legacy. It even survived a fire in 1831 that destroyed the building.
Surviving the Prohibition years of 1920-1933 took creative thought and planning. The brews were adapted by Yuengling's heirs to create near-beer drinks with less than 0.5% alcohol.
To celebrate the 21st Amendment repealing Prohibition, the company cheekily delivered a truckload of "Winner Beer" to President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the White House.
