About Lagers for Heroes

America’s Oldest Brewery is proud to be fiercely independent for nearly 190 years. At D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., we are thankful and proud of the brave and dedicated service men and women who have made tremendous sacrifices and represent our country’s freedom, honor and independence. The military has always been a community with which Yuengling has a connection and has supported on national and local levels for many years. Focusing efforts on the veterans’ programs has allowed America’s Oldest Brewery to enhance that connection and make a positive impact on all veterans from the time of enlistment through separation, including their families. Entering its fourth year, Yuengling, America’s Oldest Brewery, has supported our veterans through our Lagers for Heroes program, which seeks ways to support and show appreciation to veterans and their families.


TAPS has been caring for the families of America’s fallen heroes since 1994. Over 85,000 loved ones make up the TAPS Family. TAPS offers compassionate care to all those grieving the loss of a military loved one. All services are free of charge to the families. TAPS receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of patriotic Americans to support our resources and programs. Yuengling is partnering with the TAPS Inner Warrior Program to guide military survivors toward a healthier, fuller life through physical fitness and mental well-being.
