David Gottlieb Yuengling (March 2, 1808 – September 27, 1877) was an American businessman and brewer, the founder and first president of America's oldest brewery, D. G. Yuengling & Son.
He was born David Gottlob Jüngling on March 2, 1808, Aldingen, Kingdom of Württemberg, where his father operated the local brewery. His older brother Jakob inherited the family brewery, leaving Yuengling with limited career prospects. He emigrated to the United States via Rotterdam.
Yuengling came to Pottsville, Pennsylvania, the location of a thriving anthracite mine, and started a brewery in 1829, calling it the Eagle Brewery. Yuengling brewed British-style ales initially, and later introduced German-style lager.
His son David G. Yuengling, Jr. founded the James River Steam Brewery.
