When you're reaching for a beer, why not buy union-made?

Here's a brief list of beers and ales made by members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), the International Brother of Teamsters (IBT), the United Autoworkers (UAW), the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), and IUE-CWA.  If we're missing any, let us know at

Text BEER to 22555 to receive the list of your mobile device too.

Or if you prefer union-made ROOT beer, chose Barq's, Blumers or Old Philiadelpia!

To my Union Brothers and Sisters; Thank YOU for your hard work and I will raise my Union-brewed glass of Leinenkugel's to all of YOU!! Solidarity!! Jason

PBR is not American owned. It is owned by Oasis, which is a Russian company.

Why do the Teamsters drive trucks full non-union made Yeungling to markets all over the US? Where is the solidarity? The workers at Yeungling in PA voted to boot the union.

On 07/01/15 anonymous said:

Sam Adams has a couple breweries, but where 80% of the beer is made, they ARE NOT Union.

On 12/25/14 Beer said:

Stopped drinking Yuengling !!! will never drink it again !! one case a week or more !! 52 weeks a year and have passed the info about Yuengling .. Can someone adv me about Sam Adams are they Union ?

On 11/12/14 anonymous said:

No more Yueungling for me! I live on the West coast and when I do travel East that was my beer, thanks for letting me know. Does anyone know if the DeSchutes beers are Union? I will find out and post

On 10/23/14 anonymous said:

I believe that Sam Adams is Union made, though I'm not 100% sure.

On 08/02/14 Zak said:

Lagunitas' beers from the Chicago brewery are Union made. (Teamsters)

On 07/03/14 terence said:

Only recently found out about Yuengling !! to bad !! i like that beer, but NO MORE and will spread the word,bye bye DICK !! aleast 30 cases a year

On 06/21/14 Donovan said:

One problem is that many small craft breweries don't have a Union. I was laid-off 2 years ago from my USW job. I decided to open a small brewery. Now I have 3 employees that I provide full benefits, retirement funding, and pay at 120% of the average wage for their position. If they decide to organize I would not stand in the way. I feel a well paid and compensated employee is a loyal and had working person. It is when you try to make your fortune on the backs of hard working people is when you have high turn over and people who don't care about their job. If more corporations would realize that if you pay people a decent wage they will go above and beyond for you.

Anyone know if Lone Star and Lone Star Lite is Union Made? It says it is on the can out of Fort Worth. Just wondering since it is a more regional beer. Thanks

On 03/17/14 William said:

As a home brewer, it would be great to find out which supplier's are union.

On 03/12/14 anonymous said:

That's why I drink PBR, it's not only American made, it's American owned.

On 03/12/14 Ken said:

Who needs Yuengling beer when there are soooo many wonderful hand crafted beers available?

On 03/12/14 Richard said:

I'm a Union man - TWU 514 and a Schlitz drinker. I understand Schlitz is brewed by Pabst. If that's the case then I assume Schlitz is brewed by Union workers. If that's not right then please let me know. Schlitz has re-invented themselves and is a good beer but I would like to support Union brothers.

Worked UNION, retired UNION....This "Miller" is for you!!....Mike May, Al local UAW 1413 retiree

On 03/11/14 David said:

I have always looked for the Union Label all my working life, not only on beer but all products. As a Union retiree I would strongly recommend all union members take the time and effort to recognize our working brothers & sisters in purchasing only made in America/ Union made products...If we don't set an example how will the working public learn the importance of Labor's mission?

On 01/21/14 Christopher said:

Just to add to a previous posy, Dick Yuengling has pledged his personal fortune (billions) to make Pennsylvania a Right to Work state.

On 12/01/13 Jen said:

Yuengling is definitely not union!! Quite the contrary! In fact, the billionaire owner. Dick Yuengling, who inherited the business, is a tireless activist who speaks out at every opportunity for the enactment of Right to Work legislation. There is an active boycott campaign ongoing as a result.

Raised UNION, worked UNION, and retired UNION...Web sites like this helps ol guys like me support UNION workers. Proust to solidarity! Dave Feld, TN Local25 BCTGM Retiree.
