It's brewed here in Fort Worth now, five miles from my house. You should see a steady supply.

Best news out of Texas that I have read in quite awhile. Congratulations! I had to drive to the East to get my current supply.

Dang, what other brands are you guys missing out on?

Yuengling Lager is the Honda Civic of the Yuengling line. Yeah, it gets you there, but do you really want to be seen with one?
Get some *real* Yuenglings, like Premium, Black & Tan, or Porter.
I've heard the Oktoberfest is pretty good too, but never had it.
Grew up in the general part of NE PA where the Yuengling brewery is, before Yuengling expanded (even much further than even out of the state of PA). I "might" have consumed (cough) a "few" Yuenglings in my day.
:beer:

At the GnR concert at Hershey I noticed this beer was very popular.

Hondo Gravel 09-05-21 02:28 PM

The large HEB grocery stores in the big cities have a great beer selection but in the small towns it’s the basic swill.

Bob Ross 09-05-21 03:57 PM

Inexplicably, Yeungling Lager has received the Brooklyn Hipster Seal Of Approval in these parts. I don't get it. I mean, it's not bad, it's certainly drinkable... But sure seems an odd choice, especially since so many local breweries make better-tasting beer. :::shrugs:::

Yup this stuff is a win. Drinking it slowly and enjoying. Great for watering the grass lol.

I remember many many many years ago looking on a forum and someone was looking for a guitarist and they were quite specific on Yuengling and that you cannot drink it or enjoy it as it was "Pennsylvania Piss"

This is the beer to drink in Texas, if it is good enough for Hank it is good enough for me I tell you what:

If I am going to force myself to suffer through a plebe drink such as beer, this is among choices I would consider. It ain't as bad as many although it's a long way from my consideration that any beer is "good". My biggest issue with it aside from tasting like ass, is that it makes me have to pee way more than the incoming volume consumed, even in relation to liquor. Bloats me up pretty well also.

Hondo Gravel 09-05-21 10:02 PM

Yup my gut is bloated today lol. A few months on the bike will take care of that.

StupidlyBrave 09-06-21 06:14 AM

Here at the home of Yuengling, I'm hoping for Treehouse. I knew Yuengling opened a brewery in Florida, but Texas is new. Here is another skook drink, popular around christmas time.

Have no idea how it came to be, or if it still stands for....but as a much younger guy it was a well known "thing" that Rolling Rock was a sign of single *****exual looking for a partner.

Yuengling was one of those relatively unknown old PA brands when I was a kid. When we were in our teens there was a local store that didn't check ID and always had a $2/case special on the PA beers. It would rotate between Yuengling, Iron City, Rolling Rock and a couple of others. We consumed quite a bit of that swill for a few years. It's funny now to see such beers being considered hip. They were thought of as bottom of the barrel back then.

Well, hipsters think PBR is good. There is no accounting for taste.

Agree and good to see that some of these brews have survived the micro brewery explosion providing much better beers.

Rolling Rock and Grolsch used to be my "go to" beers after a long ride... Coors or Miller anywhere "out." Then I discovered craft beer. I'll still drink a nice cold free beer without being a snob, but given the choice... I'll look for craft beer every time... and no, Texas, "Shiner Bock" is not "craft beer..."

There are good beers made in Texas... check out Fredericksburg area for some good brew pubs. Fort Worth has a couple places brewing too.

I do highly recommend Fredericksburg Brewing Company... well worth the visit.

The bottom of the barrel back in my college days was Reading and Sunshine, both brewed in Reading Pa, far worse than any other beer I ever had in PA except for the two losers from Buffalo, NY -Iroquois Beer and Tomahawk Ale (Brewed for Braves!) true Yucchiie Weasel Wee-Wee.

I always liked going to a bar and asking for a Bottle of Iron. Pittsburgh Brewery also was great for can collectors with Offense and Defense Beer with various Steelers' Jersey Numbers on the cans. It also brewed Penguin Beer and Olde Frothingslosh Beer (“the pale, stale ale with foam on the bottom")with the wackiest cans ever.

Nor snobbery.

Lol, not a beer snob. I outright admitted above that it tastes like ass and don't care for any of it as a go to choice. There are certain situations where a well paired beer and meal compliment each other. A go to example would be specific German (influenced) foods and a hearty beer.

I am absolutely a bourbon snob though, and wear it as a symbol of pride in what I choose to imbibe (within a budget).

I've drunk it from NYC down to Key West, but it's been since 2004.

Still waiting for it to reach AZ. I checked the Total Wino website the other day and it said the nearest available was in El Paso. Kinda tempted to drive the minivan over and fill it with 12-packs :)

For true swill, anybody remember Ballantine ale?

A quick synopsis of Fort Worth brewing: The Fort Worth Ale Trail. I'm friends with the founders of HopFusion (used to ride bikes with them when they had the time before the brewery).

Of course I remember it, anybody whoever went to a game at Connie Mack Stadium in Philadelphia remembers it.

Yuenglings is pretty much all I drink (Abita Amber when I'm my daughters in Louisiana). We made a pilgrimage to the original factory in Pottstown PA, the nations oldest brewery (now just a storage facility).

Hondo Gravel 09-06-21 08:10 PM

Does Black Label out of Canada still exist? We drank that nasty stuff in HS back in the mid 80s. Cheap real cheap perfect for poor teens looking to get a buzz on. The cops hated it when we got caught and they took away our beer because they would drink it later. Like come on you punks get something better lol.

Rage 09-06-21 09:45 PM

That Ballantine ale was what we drank in high school in the 90s around here.
My memory is hazy on this but the 40 oz bottles came with a puzzle or a joke or something on the bottle cap.
Never understood what happened to the brand. It just up and disappeared one day.
