David Gottlob Yuengling (David Gottlob Yuengling)

David Gottlob Yuengling

Businessman. He founded the Yuengling Beer Breweries. The German brewer David G. J√ľngling immigrated to the United States in 1823 from Germany. He anglicized his surname from J√ľngling to Yuengling and began the “Eagle Brewery” on Center Street in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1829. The Eagle Brewery changed its name to “D.G. Yuengling and Son” in 1873. Although the company’s name changed, the bald eagle remained the company’s emblem. In 1985, the Yuengling brewery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the oldest brewery in the United States. Today the Yuengling brewery is recognized as America’s Oldest Brewery. Today they are still brewing in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. (bio by: Dave Feibusch)
