D.G. Yeungling & Son:  the oldest operating brewing company in the United States, out of Pottsville, PA.  

Two favorite facts… a) the generations of owners are required to buy the brewery from their parents, in order to retain a strong work ethic in the family business.  b) the current owner, in times of heavy snowfall, plows the streets behind the brewery himself at 2:30 am in order to keep the trucks coming and going, and without wasting manpower on the plow duties.
