Boston Beer Company Ties Yuengling For Bragging Rights.
BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Beer Company has held the distinction of being the largest U.S.-owned brewer since 1998, after Anheuser-Busch was acquired.
Now, Boston Beer is tied with Pennsylvania-based D.G. Yuengling & Son as the largest American-owned brewer.
Both companies shipped about 2.5 million barrels last year.
Back in January, Yuengling had actually announced they were larger than Sam Adams after a trade publication estimated that the company ships more beer than Boston Beer. Boston Beer is also planning to complete the national roll-out of two of its non-beer brands Twisted Tea and one of its hard cider brands.
