Every state has a classic craft beer that changed people’s perception of what beer was. From Spotted Cow in Wisconsin to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in California, there’s a dependable representative that can be found everywhere from gas station to supermarket. In Virginia, we’re fortunate enough to drink the incredibly popular Brown Ale by Legend Brewing Co.
Now more than ever, the craft beer industry needs good news One bright light in this period of uncertainty comes from America’s oldest brewery, D.G. Yuengling & Son, which recently celebrated International Women’s Day with the announcement of the Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship Program for spring 2020. The goal of the scholarship, a collaborative effort between Yuengling and the Pink Boots Society, is to advance the careers of female brewers in the U.S through educational opportunities. The scholarship also reflects Yuengling’s unique place in today’s brewing industry: Led by Jennifer Yuengling, vice president of operations and 6th generation family member, the D.G. Yuengling & Son of today is comprised of the brewery’s first generation of all-female leadership.
