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.
