Yuengling Trump : Yuengling Beer is Being Boycotted by Beer Drinkers


Yuengling Trump : According to local sources, Dick Yuengling, the fifth-generation owner of America’s oldest brewery, gave Eric Trump a personal tour of his historic Pottsville, Pennsylvania factory on Monday and told the younger Trump, “Our men are rooting for your father. We require his presence in the room.”

Yuengling Beer is being boycotted by beer drinkers after its billionaire owner endorsed Trump

After endorsing Donald Trump, one of America’s wealthiest brewers is in hot water.

Some Yuengling drinkers were outraged by his comments, and resorted to social media to express their displeasure.

One of Pennsylvania’s first out homosexual state legislators, state representative Brian Sims, published a lengthy Facebook post denouncing the corporation.

“D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. believes that an agenda that is anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT, anti-racial minority, and anti-equality is best for them, and that tells me everything I need to know about what they think is best for their own customers,” Sims wrote in a post signed by “a former customer of 17 years” on Wednesday.

Sims also invited a number of gay-owned businesses in Philadelphia to join him in boycotting the brand later that day.

Some people appear to be responding to the call. “When people support things that don’t support us, then we don’t support them.

David Perruzza, the manager of JR’s Bar in Washington, D.C., said in a video of his removing the bar’s Yuengling beer tap.

It’s an unusual case of poor publicity for Yuengling, which has cult-like reputation in Pennsylvania and the other 18 East Coast and Southeast states where it’s available.

It’s also a rare blunder for the company’s millionaire owner, Dick Yuengling, who transformed a struggling family brewery into a $550 million (revenues) beer behemoth in 1985.

He drives a filthy Toyota Camry to work every day and dresses in Wrangler jeans, yet his $1.9 billion net worth has landed him at No. 361 on Forbes’ 400 list this year.

Yuengling hinted at a few reasons why he may favour a Trump presidency during an interview for Forbes’ recent feature storey on his efforts to pass the business down to his four children.

When asked what obstacle he is most concerned about for his daughters, Yuengling cited excessive regulation rather than the increasingly competitive beer business.

In May, Yuengling told Forbes, “The rules, the laws, and the paperwork — it’s dreadful.” “The government does not have to tell us everything.”

He also claims that the country’s tax policy is forcing businesses overseas. He told Forbes, “I’m the owner of the country’s oldest brewery.”

“I’m competing with Anheuser-Busch, which is controlled by Belgians, and I’m sure the tax they pay is a fraction of what we pay in the United States. “How are you going to compete?”

Now that the backlash against his Trump endorsement is gaining traction, Yuengling may be losing formerly devoted customers to overseas competitors like Anheuser-Busch.

When contacted for comment, Yuengling stated that he would be delighted to give Hillary Clinton a tour of his brewery, but declined to elaborate. “I’ve said all I have to say.”
