Episode 3: Yuengling, the beer that's fun to spell

In episode three we talk about Yuengling. It's sort of hometown beer for all of PA where we are from. We know we are breaking the rules a bit by talking about a beer without nationwide distribution, but hey it's our show

News

Slow week for news, however coming up on the horizon is the American Craft Beer Week May 13th-20th. Good excuse to go have a beer.

Yuengling Lager

  • Means "Young Man" in German
  • From Pottsville, PA and available in Alabama, Delware, Florida,
  • Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, PA, South Carolina, Virginia, and DC.
  • If you don't see it now, you may in the future because this is the
  • 6th biggest brewery in the country, right behind Boston Beer Company. Known as America's Oldest Brewery.
  • Great first step beer, it actaully has some taste, but isn't too
  • impossing, not huge on bitterness or on sweetness (hoppyness of maltyness).
  • A beer we grew up with: If you are in PA you just order a "Lager"

Next Show

We stay on the east coast for our next show and talk about Sam Adam's Boston Lager, we promise this time.

Good question, not quite sure, but probably farther East.

They do not distribute in Ohio. I have checked all around Columbus and South Eastern Ohio, to no avail. I do not know for a fact why they don't, but I'm guessing the old Union woes and Ohio's fascination with Anheuser Busch... now owned by InBev. I would love if they did, because it is a quality lager that has amazing flavors. I always pick up a case or two on my way back from the Carolina's or Pittsburgh.

Cheers!
