Yuengling Brewery donates $50K to support hurricane relief

'Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone'

POTTSVILLE, Pa. - The devastation caused by Hurricane Irma in Florida hits home for D.G. Yuengling & Son, which has one of its three breweries in Tampa.

Dick Yuengling, the brewery's owner, announced Friday that hs family-owned company is donating $50,000 to the American Red Cross.

The money will go toward helping those not only impacted by Irma, but also by Hurricane Harvey, which roared ashore in Texas a few weeks ago.

"Our hearts go out to those who have been impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey's destruction," Yuengling said.

The Pottsville-based beer-brewing company is also inviting its customers, employees, and partners to join the effort by donating to the Red Cross through Yuengling's website.

"Please join us in supporting those communities that have been impacted," said Wendy Yuengling, the brewery's chief administrative officer. "This donation will help with relief efforts and continue to help in recovery efforts. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone, including our employees, who have also been affected."

Yuengling has had a presence in Florida since 1999, when it purchased the former Stroh Brewery Company's plant in Tampa.
