I am not a beer drinker, though my husband is. We were both very impressed with the article on your brewery. It is refreshing to see that there still remains companies like yours that value the employees, have a High standard they adhere to and Family work ethics. We applaud the hard work that it takes to run your business and are equally proud that your family supports it. We live in a town that had several family owned businesses, but few remain. Most do to greed and no interest in the family business. When new owners take over there is rarely any real interest in the benefits to the community, just supposedly Bigger Profits. So the jobs get outsourced, local jobs are lost and the whole community suffers. So again, thank you for your commitment to your family, community, and the Country as a whole. Please continue and God Bless. You must be very proud of your girls. Thank you for listening and may you have continued success.

Just wanted to say we had a lovely time getting to know the Yuengling family as we toured the brewery. Dick Yuengling and his daughters are salt-of-the-earth people who work hard to produce a great product at a modest price. They are very hospitable and happy to meet anyone who comes to visit America's Oldest Brewery. —Brenan Sharp
