How is the traditional lager ?

I've never had Yuengling before.

What other beer does it taste like ?

BJ's Wholesale has a case of 24 for $13.49.

Is that a decent price ?

IMO, it is better than other inexpensive beers (Bud, Miller, etc.). When you don't want to fork out for the good microbrews, it's a drinkable substitute. Isn't it the oldest brewery in the U.S.?
FWIW, I live in the Pac.NW so I don't try many mass market domestics :)

Yuengling is the greatest stuff on earth. I'm a UD student and its huge around here. And $13.50 for 24? Awesome price. It goes for about $11 for 12 here in town. Go get some and love it!

I'm suprised Yuengling makes it out that far. It's not pasteurized so it skunks fast

Yes, it's the oldest in the US

I love the stuff. That is all we drank at school(Penn State). I am now stuck in St. Louis with crap like Bud and Bud Light. How can Anheiser Busch even make money with this crap. The best I can do when I go out is Miller Lite:rolleyes:. I was recently in Orlando at Disney and went to the ESPN Zone there. They had Yuengling on the menu. I hadn't had one in like a year. $4.50 a bottle:eek:
Our dinner Bill was well over $125 for four. My sister and her husband and my GF. My GF is from St. Louis and thus didn't understand our three's excitement upon seeing the menu. My brother-in-law used to take 2 cases on the plane with him as luggage when they lived in Memphis for 2 years. It is a quasi-religion to me and him.
Great Price too.

How can Anheiser Busch make money with this crap? Because it's intoxicating crap. I swear if you had a recipie for a potion that would let people get high from smoking turds you could turn it into a Fortune 500 company:)

Wow, are lads! You are talking my language! Having been weaned on vitamin Y since...well;)
I live 3 blocks away from the old brewery and lived locally all my life. Some good news for all you Yuengling drinkers, the new brewery is done and running at full capacity.:D America's oldest and newest breweries. Also, they bought a brewery in Florida. So you can now get your liquid crack in more and more places. Here's their site http://www.yuengling.com/ it has all the info you need.
And here is how us coalcrackeres speak, well some of us...462 da... http://www.coalregion.com/Speak/speakA.htm
I tink ya get a chuckle oot of da dialect.
IMNSHO, Yuengling's "larger" beer, lager for you outsiders;) is the best, but I may be bias.
I'm having one right now:b

The traditional lager is great but I prefer the "Premium Lager". Same price but a little smoother taste. Whenever I introduce someone to Yuengling they can't believe it's so good and it's the same price as Bud or Coors. My brother-in-law out in Long Island now loves Yuengling but can't find it so whenever we visit I bring him a case or two.
The Porter is also very nice. I haven't tried the Black & Tan though. (The only Black & Tan I like is Guinness & Harp).

Al,

Good to know there is someone else from the coal region on the HTF!!!

As for Yuengling, what can I say? It is the only domestic, non-microbrew that I will drink. The Black and Tan is my favorite with Lager a close second.

I believe it is still only available in certain states, but I'm not sure which ones. Any idea, Al?

By the way, the brewery has been in operation since 1829.

Yuengling makes some real swill, let me tell you. $10/case in the 16 oz returnable bottles in most of PA. Really crappy. Completes with Iron City, Schmidt's, and Red WHite & Blue.

The more "upscale" Yuengling "Lager" is pretty good at best IMO. They also make a Porter which is passable. You could get Yuengling Porter in the early 80s before the Micro boom made Porter and other interesting beers more popular. In other words, Yuengling was making distinctive brews when it wasn't cool. Compared to other Porters, though, it's a little weak.

They mix their Porter and Lager into a product they call "Black and Tan". This is a good beer that I like.

For Pennsylvania brews, I prefer Stoudt's, which is easily some of the best beer on Earth. I also like Allentown's "Neuweiler" beer, particularly the Porter which is the best example of that style that I have sampled.

Ummm...Yuengling...great stuff...I went to College with one of the Yuengling daughters and was proud to say that I helped pay for her college education!

Anyway...the lager is a great reasonably priced brew...especially when it's priced the same as Bud...

Black & Tan in 16 oz cans is the best bargain going...something like $14.99 a case...

They have made a huge push to expand their distribution in recent years. Yuengling is now available all over in Pittsburgh (good when I go see the folks) and is even available here in Richmond! Cool.

They have their Premium Beer, Traditional Lager, Lord Chesterfield Ale, Porter, Black & Tan, and a light. Black & Tan is a combo of the Porter and Premium.

Actually, they mix Porter and Premium to get Black and Tan. From the faq
Black & Tan originally started by combining Porter and Ale. This was called Half and Half. Around 1986 the brewmaster felt that 60% Porter and 40% Premium was a much better blend and started producing Black & Tan.
HTH:)

growing up in NE PA (my family's from Mt. Carmel and Shamokin PA), Yuengling was my first, and still one of my favorite beers!
Luckily, I can still find most of the varieties here in the Richmond Metro. Too bad I can't get a pie from Morrones in Girardville delivered down here!
great call on www.coalregion.com!
