Native American made beer even before the arrival of Europeans in the 1600s. They would use different ingredients to what they used in Europe and were made in different ways. When the Europeans came over to America and started to colonise it beer was also brought over by the British who settled in what is now New Jersey.

In the 1800s America’s beer industry was continuing to grow and it was around this time that Yuengling started to make beer who are now the oldest brewers in the USA that are still manufacturing today.

It was going so well that people from Germany started to move to the USA to start their own companies. Several companies were started including Budweiser which is now the most successful brand in the world.

For a short period in the early 1900s alcohol was made illegal in the USA and many beer companies had to make the switch to non-alcoholic beverages and many had to shut down however eventually due to how much money the beer industry makes for America the law was invoked.
