There is a local beer in SE Pennsylvania that has a really goofy ass name. The packaging claims it is the oldest brewery in America, but I can't remember the name.

I had a reply as soon as I got back to the main GD screen, 29 seconds. And that was the third person who read it. Tell me this isn't the best board around.

Yuengling!

From Pottsville, PA. My aunt and uncle live there, and my uncle worked in the plant when he was a kid moving kegs.


And it is America's Oldest Brewery. And one of it's best.

The correct answer is Yuengling.

The oldest brewer in North America is Molson. The oldest in the USA is Yuengling. Many lawsuits and court battles have been fought over this. I think the courts decieded they were both right .

Yuengling Lager is my favorite beer and Molson Ice is my second.

If anything I have stated is incorrect it is because I have been drinking too much of America's oldest brew.


I guess I am old fashioned.

I was TDY to Fort Indian Town Gap for a few days to attend a conference, while I was there I enjoyed a few beers(maybe more than a few), I really liked the Yuengling Lager. I'd like to find it out west, but I think I may be out of luck.

Yuengling is well on its way to becoming a national brand.

You should be able to find it if you look hard enough.

It is a regional beer. Try Straub as well. There are so many great regional beers that most of us will never get to sample because of limited distributuion.

I once met Dick Yeungling.

Nice guy.

I went to college with his daughter and passed up a chance to date her. (she's just not very attractive, IMO).

To think, I could have been an heir to the Yeungling beer empire.



Oh, yeah, their beer ROCKS!

I've downed countless gallons of the stuff.

Can't get it out here

Yuengling is great stuff. Cheap, and really tasty. It's like Dos Equis, smooth malt taste without being watered down alchoholy.

Yuengling is da shit! Imma miss it :(

I like thier black and tans best of all.

Actually, technically its Yuengling, but we really just call it "lager".
If you head in to any bar in the SE PA area and ask for a lager, you will get a Yuengling.

Enjoy

It's a cool story behind it's popularity. if i can find it i'll post it.
It has to do with one marketing guy deciding to change their label.and going from a relatively unknown beer outside it's local area, to now one of the most popular beers around. All because of changing a label and some marketing
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 3:57:37 AM EDT
They give tours of the brewery with free samples. I've been on two tours now and I'll definitely go again. Lager is a damn popular beer and justifiably so. I like the porter and the black & tan as well. Their Lord Chesterfield has something to be desired though. The last time I took a tour, Dick Yuengling took the tour with us and we got to talk with the "big man". He is a really nice guy. They said that soon their beer would be available nationwide. Right now they distribute on the entire east coast and to the Mississippi river. Yuengling now has a brewery in Florida as well as its home in Pottsville, PA.

Yeah, here in York PA, you sit at a bar, they just assume you want a lager (er, sorry, Yuengling lager). Some bars sell out quite regularly. The counter-assault now is by Miller Lite and Coors, they seem to sponsor every event around here, and practically give beer away ($0.50 pitchers, etc.) to try and reclaim part of the market.

If everyone in Pennsylvania who drinks Yuengling would vote for Bush, we wouldn't be a battleground state.

I know you can get it in Alabama now.

My buddy's down there drink it at a bar in Mobile.

And I was visiting a guy at Univ. of North Alabama and one of his roommates walked in with a case of Lager. Turned out he was from Lancaster.

Sraub sucks!!! I live 35 miles from there. Struab is distributed to a much smaller area than yuengling.

Right on
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 6:30:29 PM EDT
Ok, the ONLY LAGER IN PENNSYLVANIA IS YUENGLING.
Story goes it was the college crowd that made it popular (when I went to college, besides frat parties, we only drank lager).
Also, my friend lives outside atlanta. Closest place to get it is 1.5 away in n.c.
No fear, Yuengling is increasing their brewing capacity as we speak.
They have two seperate facilities in Pottsville now.
I now have to go procure a lager from the frigde,
See YINZ soon.

Yuengling ain't too regional as I'm drinking some that I bought here in Alabama just a few hours ago.

I live right by the Galleria. I belong to the York Riflemen, and shoot at the range on, well, Range Road, off of Druck Valley road. When I go out for a beer, I hit "Barracuda's", among others.

Hell ya! As much as I like Yuengling, I love Straubs! Man I need to get back to PA. No added salt, sugar or preservatives, which helps with hangovers.

No offence intended but if you think Straub sucks you haven't drank enough beer to know what good beer is.
