Snackshot of the Day: Yuengling Advertisement

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Cheers to America's oldest brewery.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

In honor of its 185th birthday, today's Snackshot is of an old advertisement for Yuengling beer. On February 20th, 1829, the Eagle Brewing Company was founded in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. After changing the name of the company to the family name of Yeungling in 1873, it still stands as America's oldest brewery. While you'll most commonly find their traditional lager, they also offer Yuengling Premium, Porter, Black & Tan, Lord Chesterfield Ale, a light lager, and a light beer. Raise your glass and celebrate this legendary American brew today.
