Yuengling growing

Family-owned Yuengling was founded in 1829.  Cautiously growing, it has added a brewery in Memphis to existing ones in Pottsville (near Philadelphia) and Tampa. Although it produces about the same amount of beer as does Boston Beer (brewer of Samuel Adams), Yuengling has only about 250 employees as compared with Boston's 900. Among America's top ten breweries, Yuengling is the one one to post a double digit increase in sales in the last year.  By the way, some drinkers think that Yuengling (pronounced ying-ling) is a Chinese import.  See the Wall Street Journal article,
