Default Yeungling overtakes Boston Beer Company

Annual sales have eclipsed Boston Beer Company. Yeungling is now the largest domestic owned producer and still the oldest!

Not really all that surprised. Now that they're available in more places, more folks are getting to try it.
On the one hand, you can get a Sam Adams with a craft beer flavor and look- that is to say, very hoppy and multi-layered.
Or, you you can get a Yuengling for a much lower retail price, it's got a comfortable, rounded flavor that's not overly hoppy, and just seems like it's more comfortable in it's own skin, so to speak. Eminently drinkable, both for those that can appreciate history and craft, and those that are usually BMC drinkers.
Great session beer for me

Thats funny because I haven't seen Yeungling on the west coast, but you can't walk ten feet without running into Sam Adams.

It's as far as Ohio, and friends bring me back some when they travel down that why, I can't wait for it to cross the state line. I really have enjoyed their offerings.

Goes to show we're drinking a LOT more of the Yuengling in the states it's available. Sam Adams is available nearly everywhere in the US, and still moves less product.

Just went a pulled one out of the fridge. My parents brought some out before Christmas. Have one once and awhile to "take me back home" (originally from PA).

That doesn't make it inferior.

Said it before and I'll say it again Yuengling is the second worst beer I've ever had. In a resteraunt in N. C I had a glass of their lager. Couldn't get past 2 sips. Must be something the resteraunt did since so many people like it. Of course since drinking dark ales w/flavor it's hard to drink a light colored lager.
