Owner of Yuengling Brewery talks union and taxes

Written by The Associated Press | Aug 26, 2013 1:08 PM

(Harrisburg) -- The head of the Schuylkill County megabrewery D.G. Yuengling and Son Inc. calls Governor Corbett ``a great man'' who's trying to do the right thing.

Company president and owner Dick Yuengling told the Pennsylvania Press Club today he hopes the state will adopt a right-to-work policy for union representation and reduce the capital stock and franchise tax.

He says Corbett's office contacted him ``right away'' after he was quoted saying the Pottsville-based company might build its next brewery in another state. 

Yuengling says he's not worth a billion dollars, despite his inclusion earlier this year on a Forbes magazine list of billionaires.

He says no one's going to offer him a billion dollars for the company, but even if they did, he wouldn't take it.
