Fire Strikes Yuengling’s Tampa Brewery

America’s oldest brewery, Yuengling, partially caught fire Saturday evening. The two-alarm fire looked worse on the outside, then on the inside.

Even though the damage is estimated at nearly $1 million, the brewery is still able to brew and distribute normally.  Just a portion of the top of the building seen above was burned

Beer Street Journal is told that no brewery employees were injured, however a firefighter suffered minor injuries and was hospitalized.

Yuengling was founded in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1829. Prohibition? Fire? No problem for the Yuengling family.
