Yuengling looking ahead to sixth generation

The fifth-generation president and owner of Pottsville-based Yuengling & Son Brewery president Dick Yuengling, 63, says that looks forward to handing the nation’s sixth-largest brewery over to his four daughters, each of whom works for the 177-year-old company.

Speaking at a Lancaster Chamber of Commerce & Industry meeting, Yuengling said he has no reservations about making such an unprecedented move.

“It could work very well. You might see a major brewery with four women owning it. I think that would be kind of neat.”
