...Just a fun fact
yeah. but wouldn't it still be the oldest brewing company? that would mean about the same to me, even if they aren't in the same building. though pretty cool if it was still in the same building

(i don't know this, its just what i thought they meant)

Funny story that's for sure. Yuengling, never had it but I'd like to try it.

Aw, c'mon now. Bitte ein Bit!



As German Pils goes, it's not that bad. It must not travel well.

I am stationed overseas, and our base "beer caves" rarely have good beer.... The main reason I got into homebrewing. Once, maybe twice a year we get a shipment of y in. Stuff flies off the shelves in less than a day.... New Castle takes about 6 days. I have drank many yeunling, never got the hype. Thought I was a beer snob until I remembered I still love budweiser cans when playing the links

I've been on the tour at Yuengling. The old buildings are pretty cool, especially the caves originally used for cold storage. The day I went, it was almost 100° out, but the caves were in the 50's.
They purchased a large facility in FL (tampa), which makes them available from PA to FL.
I buy the lager for those that don't like homebrew.
Their ale, black and tan are also good. Also had a limited release bock a few years back that was good.

We can get the Bitburger Pils in tall can 4-packs at Giant Eagle here. I think it's good. Oh,& by the way,many on beeradvocate say DO NOT BUY IT IN BOTTLES! It tastes like...you don't wanna know. The tall cans are actually better. Reminded me of a home brew done well. Just gotta get it fresher in the right container,I guess.

Sounds pretty high maintenance... right down my alley. If it was a woman, I probably dated it.

Noble Pils I have found to be a really good gateway beer for BMC people. Guess these guys are beyond saving haha

I've never tried Yuengling. SA Nobil Pils was just alright for me. But its still leaps and bounds better than any BMC and day of the week.

I too had to roll my eyes & chuckle at the OP's story. How typical a response. It's rather amusing for us,after learning better,to look at them react to something that's actually good. Kinda makes you hope you're there when the lil grain of wheat bulb in their brain goes off!
