The Yuengling company's claim to fame is that it is the oldest brewery in America. The brewery got its start in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1829. Founder David Yuengling died in 1877, but the company continued to grow. At present, Yuengling offers a selection of brews, each with a different calorie count. Enjoy a beer from time-to-time for special occasions, but don't make the beverage a daily habit as it is not particularly nutritious.
