Yuengling is now the number one US brewerJanuary 18, 2012
Clarification: Number one US OWNED brewer. They still only have a tiny 1% market share, but they just passed Sam Adams in barrels brewed.
Yeah, most Americans still haven’t heard of Yuengling, but their territory is spreading every year, and yes, Bud and Miller still outsell them by the millions, but they’re both owned by foreign companies, even though they still brew in the US.
By the way, don’t tell anyone, but I can’t STAND Yuengling Lager. If I’m diggin’ around in the cooler and my choice is between a Lager and a wine cooler, I’ll take the wine cooler!
