The Brewers Association, a not-for-profit trade group representing the craft brewers just issued their top-50 list of breweries by sales volume. At the top of the list sits D.G. Yuengling of Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Coming in second is Boston Beer Company, makers of the Sam Adams line of beers and ales.
This makes us wonder about this category. What, exactly is a craft brewer these days? Yuengling still produces a fraction of the beer that comes out of Anheuser-Busch or Miller-Coors, and it’s listed as number six overall.
With all the great local beer we now enjoy, where does Yuengling fall on your list of favorite beers?
