Unlike the other reviewer, I have read it and I like it better than the beer. It's obvious the author spent many a long night at the local Pottsville pubs interviewing the Yuengling employees and faithful, probably while sucking down a great many black and tan's in the process. Loved the book. So as I sit here sipping a Lord Chesterfield, here's to you Mr. Noon and to you Dick Yuengling; keep up the good work!

I recently finished the History of the Yuengling Brewery. The book was filled with history of Eastern Pennsylvania, especially around Yuengling. Much of the book is about the founders and the 19th century. I wanted to read a little bit more about the late 20th century, but realize the book is about their history.

Some great photographs throughout the book make for a pleasant read. The only part really missing were some interesting stories about the brewery passed down from the founders, the town, or people who worked there. Some stories exist, but would have liked to seen more throughout the book. With that said, the book is a great biography of a cool brewery that continues to go strong and have a major presence in Pennsylvanie and the Northeast.

This book is a must read for any one who is both a Yuengling drinker and who wants to learn the history of brewing beer in NE PA.

The Yuengling is both the oldest merican Brewery--est in 1829 and also it has been run by the Yuengling family since that time.

For anyone planning to visit Pottsville,PA the home of Yuengling,reading this book wil give abroader insight into both the brewery and the overall area.

Overall author Mark Noon has done an excellant "job" in his research of the history of both NE Pa and the Yuengling Brewery.

Well written history not only of the Yuengling brewery but the coal mining regions of PA. Well written history dating per Civil War to the present. If you are interested in American history or beer this is a good book.

This is by far the best beer brewed in America. Yes, I know.. 'Yuengling, what kind of name is that.. it sounds Japanese' All I can tell you is this, growing up in PA, and actually graduating from the author's place of employment (GO HUSKIES), we grew up on this beer. (after we hit 21 of course)

The Lager is incredible, although I recommend you get it as cold as possible as it tastes even better as it approaches freezing temperatures..

In the fall, swing to their Black and Tan, a slightly more filling beer, but amazing taste. You don't need it quite as cold as the Lager.. The best part is this stuff comes in 16 oz cans...

Next for winter, break open a case of porter. This stuff is so good you can drink it right out of the case without it ever hitting the fridge.. especially if you live in PA and store it in your garage during the winter months.. After 2 or 3 of the porters, give your keys to your designated driver, and switch back to the Lager, as the Porter is quite filling..

For a special treat, may I also recommend the Chesterfield Ale.

When I lived in New Orleans and would travel back to PA, my neighbors would ask me to bring cases of this stuff down for them. The Black and Tan is better than Abita Turbo Dog..

The best part is you can get a case of this stuff for under $20. Try getting a case of Guiness for anything near that.

So have I read the book? NO, but I have cracked open quite a few Yuenglings in my time.. Maybe it's time to enjoy a few while reading up on the last 175 years.. Although I would have to sacrifice 2 cases of Yuengling to buy the book. HMMMMMMMMMM
