Top 10 biggest US craft brewers of 2017

1. D. G. Yuengling & Son, Inc – Pottsville, PA

Flagship brew: Yuengling Lager

Founded: 1829

Yuengling is the “oldest brewery in the United States”, with its roots starting with David Yuengling in 1829 with the Eagle Brewery in Pennsylvania, with the operation renamed  D.G Yuengling & Son in 1873 after David’s son joined the business as partner.

In 2009 the brewery surpassed two million barrels, with Dick Yuengling – fifth generation – now heading up the business, alongside his four daughters.

Most recently, the brewery announced the imminent release of its first addition to its core range in nearly two decades – the 4.7% Yuengling Golden Pilsner.

NB: Yuengling became eligible for “craft brewer” status in 2014 after the Brewers Association changed its definition of “adjunct grains”, such as corn, in early 2014 to be “traditional”, and therefore craft.
