I like beer. Almost everybody likes beer. And now it appears that beer likes Donald Trump! The Yuengling family, owners of the oldest beer brewery in the United States is backing Mr. Trump for President!

The Yuengling story is fascinating. It has been in business since 1829, the brewery was struggling in 1985. That is when Richard “Dick” Yuengling Jr. bought the business from his father. At the time the single brewery was producing 137,000 barrels a year.

Dick Yuengling turned it into a $550 million powerhouse which now produces 2.8 MILLION barrels of beer per year. Despite not finishing college in order to work in the brewery, he makes the Forbes 400 list with a net worth of $1.81 billion.

Yuengling told Eric Trump, “Our guys are behind your father,” Yuengling said. “We need him in there.”

Of course, not everybody is happy. Some bitter beer drinkers are disavowing their favorite suds because the Yuengling family is backing Donald Trump.

One of the most outspoken was Philadelphia City Council’s Communications Director Jane Roh.

This just means more for the rest of us!

Be sure to tell friends and others that the oldest brewery in America stands behind Donald Trump!
