I've only ever seen Dick Yuengling wearing something besides jeans once. Last time I interviewed him, he chain-smoked Marlboros and stubbed them out in a used keg tap cover. So this
doesn't surprise me at all. Buying the big ex-Coors plant in Memphis? That
December 29, 1981, 1 p.m. My first tour of Yuengling, and when it was over, we retired to the tap room. Dick Sr. was pouring, and we had a great time, as evidenced by our departure time...6 p.m.
We left the brewery, thanked Dick, and said our goodbyes. Dick climbed into a sea-green AMC Gremlin, fired 'er up and drove away, waving at us.
Dick Jr. comes by it honestly.
All beer drinkers should make a Hajj to Pottsville. Pay homage to the company that is Yuengling.
Another thing, the Yuengling Brewery is not a gift, it is purchased by the next generation. I'd say Dick knows the value of a dollar and so do his daughters.
