D.G. Yuengling & Son celebrated National American Eagle Day on Saturday by releasing an eaglet named Lager in honor of the Pottsville-based brewery’s partnership with the American Eagle Foundation.

Yuengling, whose logo features an eagle, sought to raise awareness for the foundation earlier this year with limited-edition American Eagle Foundation cans of its lager. The foundation also held a special livestreamed event in connection with the eaglet release to celebrate eagle conservation, which you can view on the foundation’s Facebook page.


Founded in 1985, the foundation is based in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and focuses on eagle conservation, repopulation, rehabilitation and education. For more information about the foundation, visit eagles.org.

Last week, Yuengling reopened its brewery at 420 Mahantongo St. for tours following a temporary closing because of the coronavirus pandemic. Tours are by appointment only from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Face masks are required, and groups will be limited in size. For reservations, visit yuengling.com/visit-us.
