The Twitter profile for Yuengling Brewery, which according to Blaze Media is the oldest brewery in the U.S., excited many patriotic Americans after it possibly took a jab at Bud Light following its controversy with Dylan Mulvaney.
Anheuser-Busch made many of its customers furious after trans activist and TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney, who is infamous for “normalizing the bulge” amongst women, was seen partnering with the company for a March Madness beer promotion.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson offered a reaction to the decision that many conservatives could sympathize with:

Amid the controversy, Yuengling put up a post online featuring a message that promoted the company along with a photo of the American flag and a can of beer.
“Yuengling, The Oldest Brewery In America,” reads the post. “Independently Owned and Family Operated since 1829 because we make good beer.”

The brewery’s post received over 4.9 million impressions, with the account only having about 93 thousand followers.
Numerous users online offered thunderous praise for Yuengling’s pro-America advertisement, with some of them making a point to dunk on Bud Light as well.
“HELL YEAH MURICA RISE UP! Stars and Stripes forever! F BUD LITE! SALUT YUENGLING!” reacted comic book creator Ethan Van Sciver.
“This is the only way to not go woke. Privately owned and operated business,” read another response.
“Thank you for supporting AMERICA. I’m a real woman and your beer is the beer for me. Real women, and now real men, don’t drink Bud Light,” replied Republican activist Sarah Fields.
Some conservatives had different takes on the matter. Donald Trump Jr., for instance, urged for an end to right-wing boycotts of the beer, insisting that Anheuser-Busch deserves their money as it has a history of donating to Republicans.
Meanwhile, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), silently axed a post office where people would send money and receive an alternative beer, according to a report by the Daily Beast.
“Thanks to Dylan Mulvaney, we can all finally admit that Bud Light tastes like water,” the NRCC said in a now-deleted tweet that was captured by the outlet. “With our new koozie’s, you can make sure no one confuses Bud Light with real beer ever again.”
