Yuengling neon signs are collectible pieces of breweriana associated with US brewery Yuengling. They can vary dramatically in style, some little more than the Yuengling name, others incorporating decorative logos.

The neon signs are generally used as advertising in bars and liquor stores.

Many are vintage pieces (according to the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act’s definition, “vintage” refers to pieces manufactured within the last 100 years and can include items made as recently as the 1980s.)

History of Yuengling

Yuengling is the oldest extant brewery in the US.

The company was founded in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1829 by David Gottlob Jüngling. It was first known as the Eagle Brewery, before changing its name to DG Yuengling and Son in 1873, adopting the English spelling of the Jüngling name. The bald eagle in the company’s logo is a reminder of its first name.

The company survived the growth of large commercial breweries in the 1970s and now produces around 2.3 billion barrels each year, placing it among the top 10 commercial US breweries.

Yuengling collectibles

The brewery is well-known for its range of collectibles, which range from T shirts to surfboards.

How much are Yuengling neon signs worth?

Highly decorative Yuengling neon signs can sell for up $200. Simpler versions can change hands for as little as $100.
