WWII vet celebrates 101st birthday at Yuengling brewery

POTTSVILLE, Pa. — America’s oldest brewery seems to have quite a following among some of Pennsylvania’s oldest residents.

Last October, D.G. Yuengling & Son surprised Margaret Dilullo of Spring Township, Berks County, with nearly 500 cans of her favorite beer — Traditional Lager — for her 107th birthday.

“Beer, the word, is in the Bible,” Margaret told 69 News. “It don’t tell you to drink it, but it’s in.”

On Tuesday, Yuengling invited World War II veteran Chuck Cott of Lancaster County to celebrate his 101st birthday at its 19th-century brewery in Pottsville.

Chuck sported some Yuengling swag as he enjoyed a cold glass of the flagship beer in the brewery’s tasting room on Mahantongo Street. He also offered a look at some of his military medals.
