& Daughters

Our 6th Generation Story

D.G. Yuengling & Son is family-owned and proud since 1829! For five generations prior, the business has passed from father to son. What you may not know is that the sixth generation of the Yuengling family is four daughters – Jen, Debbie, Wendy and Sheryl. We proudly work alongside our dad to carry on our family tradition of brewing good beer for everyday enjoyment. We thought we’d create a blog to share our story as the future of America’s Oldest Brewery. We hope to connect with our incredibly loyal fans as well as engage with new drinkers, and share an inside look at Yuengling – our people, the communities where we live and work, our products, what drives us, excites us, and what our passions are. Welcome to & Daughters.
