Citizens Yuengling

I was lucky enough to catch WVIA's NEPA Business Journal last weekend and just happened to tune in to a rebroadcast of their profile of Dick Yuengling and his daughter Wendy, telling their story about leading the oldest brewery in America, the Yuengling brewery in Pottsville PA.

Dick seems to be a funny, sincere, and fiscally conservative guy who displays what it takes to run a successful business. His daughters, of which there are four, work in the business and will be taking over from him someday to carry on the tradition.

It's an interesting story of a seven generation family owned business and I'd urge you to try to see it on reruns if you can.
