Yuengling Brewery Catches Fire, Loses $1 Million

(In Tampa. But still.)

Saturday night, Yuengling’s Tampa brewery caught fire, causing about $1 million in damage. No employees were hurt (none were there) and the fire won’t hurt the actual beer-making. This story should remind us of two things.

First, the local beer you cherish very well may have come from coastal Florida. Two, that $1 million in damages represents .07% of Dick Yuengling’s net worth. Cheers! [Morning Call]
