POTTSVILLE, Pa. -

A New Jersey-based graphic artist claims a well-known Pottsville brewery hasn't paid him for work on a new project.

Freelance graphic designer Adam D'Addario says the Yuengling Brewery has not paid him for his work on this year's Octoberfest packaging design.

He claims he asked to be compensated for the work repeatedly through email, voicemail and written letters.

Yuengling is scheduled to ship out more than $14 million worth of seasonal product in September.

D'Addario says now he's looking for more than a quarter million dollars in fees and damages.
