Beer drinkers disavow Yuengling after owner shows support for Trump

The owner of America's oldest brewery has come out in support of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and the company's faithful drinkers aren't too happy about it.

Eric Trump, the nominee's son, stopped at D. G. Yuengling & Son's in Pottsville on Monday while campaigning on behalf of his father.

His message to the company? Hard-working family businesses like Yuengling, a fixture in Schuylkill County since the 1800s, would thrive under a President Trump, the Reading Eagle reported Tuesday.

Yuengling's response?

"Our guys are behind your father," 73-year-old owner Richard "Dick" Yuengling Jr. said, according to the newspaper. "We need him in there."

Some fans of the beer were quick to retaliate Wednesday, declaring they plan to stop drinking Yuengling altogether.

1. He was also f/ Romney & is anti-union

Searched "Yuengling and Romney" among links was one from FB in 2012 calling f/ boycott: "Dick Yuengling, a notorious union buster, supports 'Right to Work'" I haven't bought his beer since.

7. Yeah, I can definitely see, if Trump were President there'd be a lot more drinking going on . . .

I don't know if this would extend to brewers who support him, but there'd be a definite uptick in overall alcohol consumption.

11. That's very unfortunate. I've let my Dad know, he won't be buying any more Yuengling.

It's good beer too. I like it (can't get it in TX) and had some when I was visiting family in PA recently. Stupid move on the part of the owner, or maybe he thinks only white men supporting Donald drink Yeungling.

13. I only liked their Hefeweizen (Summer Wheat), but screw that now!

If I'm in the mood for a Hefeweizen, I'll buy Sierra Nevada or brands from Germany.

15. Jesus H. Kriced! This isn't a thread about the taste of Yuengling

It's about the Yuengling's taste in politics!

All ya'll that like to drink weak piss, give it up! Beer is a matter of personal taste and Yuengling is pretty good, IMO, but now they are on my shitlist with ALL Nestle products, Chic-Fil-A, and Walmart! LOL

21. A few years back, I Visited some relatives in D.C. They kept Singing the praises of Yuengling.
