my buddy just went to chattanooga for a weekend. had him bring me back a case of the traditional lager. i really like the faint sweetness imparted by the corn. i'm not in for adjunct brewing usually, but in this instance, the corn enhances rather than detracts from the overall profile and experience. it's not the best beer i've ever had, but it's damn good. i really hope distribution makes it to IN. i've sent them probably 10 emails requesting it (maybe 2 sober).
This is pretty cool to hear. Yuengling is definitely one of my 'go-to' brews. I have always referred to them as 'Jang-langs'. It is a great light beer. And good for them sticking to their guns! It makes me appreciate them that much more.
Having grown up and gone to college in PA, and now they have expanded to all of the east coast, I actually forgot that you couldn't get it everywhere. I feel as though I have taken them for granted and suddenly I wanna stop at a gas station on the way home and pick up a 6er of yingers. Sorry to those out there that can't get it. I'll gladly trade anyone that wants it for a bottle of pliny though!
I live two blocks from the Mill creek brewery and about a mile from the Original Pottsville location. Can smell them brewing anytime I open my front door. They just recently (Read last week) installed what looked to be a bunch of bright tanks. They were larger then a semi. Too bad it's dark so early now or I would grab some pictures after work.
My dad is a woodworker and made a bar top for one of the daughers with each label CNC'd into the top of the bar. If your in the area. Do the tour, very cool and historic. Their lager is very good as well as there porter and Chesterfield ale. Known as "Chetty" around here. Premium and Premium light aren't bad, just not my choice.
