I remember taking a case to visit a dear friend in Vermont once. She had houseguests and the first thing one of them said when he went in the kitchen was "Ok, who here is from Pennsylvania?"

Hope this helps with the discussion that is developing in this thread. Ladies and Lorna Doom, I have been Sockmonkeyholocaust.

I think it's hilarious that people who will endlessly biatch about the quality of Anheuser-Busch and Coors products treat this bilge water as if it were some sort of nectar of the gods.

Please, allow the westward expansion to reach Montana. I miss the lager from my days in central PA.
 
2012-10-07 01:42:31 PM
I heard so much about it. Then I went on vacation, and had one. And another. And another.

I drank it in the morning, afternoon, and night. I drank it with meals and without.

It's just not good. I gave it every possible opportunity. I wanted to like it.

But it's bad.

Pennsylvania ditch water bottled and sold for your enjoyment. It gives me the shiats better than any prescription laxitive, so i only drink it when i want to do some "spring cleaning." I cannot fathom why people here love the stuff, and i'm not at all a 'beer snob.'

After living in the Philly area for almost 10 years now, i have figured out the quickest way to get into a fistfight is to tell the natives you dont like Yuengling or Tastykake. It's the rough equivalent of telling them you just farked their mother and she paid you for it; thems serious fightin' words.

Pretty much what Mr. Gozinya, Treygreen13 and others have said in this thread.

It really is blah. Now, if that's for you, then awesome. To me, it might as well be relabled Coors or Bud.

I'm here in Texas, and I'm just over Shiner. I'm not saying it's a bad beer, but it's the first thing one drinks after growing out of Miller/Bud, so I'd like a Yeungling for a change.

If you don't like Tastykake sir, then you deserve the face punching.

I am drinking a Shiner Oktoberfest now.

Here in Louisiana, Yuengling rains down like manna everywhere around us but not here.

So yeah I will make that trade.

It has more flavor than Coors or Bud. Not much, but more.

The main difference for me is that Coors and Bud have a chemical taste that I can't abide. I don't know if its preservatives or what. Also the hangover from the Inbev stuff... yikes. Its like being poisoned.
 
2012-10-07 02:26:50 PM
I enjoy Yuengling on tap. One thing I like about it is that it is brewed in PA. I used to drink Rolling Rock until they removed it "from the glass-lined tanks of old Latrobe." I guess I'll just drink who garden, if no one wants to make beer here.
 
2012-10-07 02:27:52 PM
There's definitely better beer out there, it's the best in super cheap category Bud, Miller, and Coors occupy.
 
2012-10-07 02:36:34 PM
When Farkers say "Yuengling" as one beer are they just talking about Lager or are they aware there is a lineup of seven full time beers and two seasonals? Granted two of seven are light varieties.
 
2012-10-07 02:38:36 PM
I came back from college to hang out with my dad for an afternoon. I brought a 6 pack of Yuengling. He said "Why did you buy Chinese beer?"

Come out west, Yuengling! We'll love you long time!
 
2012-10-07 02:58:56 PM
ah Yuengling. Not great, not offensive either. It just is. A nice safe brew to bring to a backyard cook out you have been invited to. It was what I used to open my father's eyes to other drinking/trying other beers besides coors/bud etc. I consider it the 'gateway drug' of beers.

There is a cheese steak place next door to me. The owners are from Philly (I'm in Chicago) they bring in the bread from Philly, it's legit. They also have tastykakes. Those things are awful.

Meh, it is better than Miller Lite and Bud Light, so for that I thank them and purchase it when I want a simple beer that is cheap.

I really like their Black and Tan. I went to college in PA so Yueng was really my first major beer. I cant really do a night of heavier beer and I abhor the light stuff so Yueng is a good middle of the road for me.

Basically everything from Schlafly, 4 Hands, Perennial, & Six Row are better than Yuengling. St. Louis suffers from an embarrassment of wealth when it comes to craft brewers.

Yuengling - the second most overrated beer in the world. (The first being Guinness obviously.)

That's some true shiat right there ladies and gentlemen. I moved near Philly 13 years ago and whenever I want to start a fight, or get someone so flustered they don't know what to say, that's the direction I take.

Drives me nuts when on the yearly business trip to Florida everyone goes to Italian restaurants and drinks Yuengling.

4/10.
 
2012-10-07 05:57:05 PM
To repeat what others have said, it's not that it's the best beer, but it is better than Coors/Bud/Miller and still in the middle of the road price range. Yeah, things like Young's Double Chocolate Stout is better, but its cost makes it a "sometimes" beer.

I always have Yeungling when I visit family in Florida. Mmmmm.

Shiner is decent. The thing about Shiner is that it's mainstream enough here that EVERY bar has it, and it's decent enough beer. It means that, unlike in Florida, I almost never find myself in a shiatty place where you can only choose Bud or Miller. They'll ALWAYS have Shiner as an option. For my money, I prefer Real Texas Ale (Blanco, TX) and Ranger Creek (San Antonio, TX)

/in San Antonio.

If I want a good historic american beer, I drink Falls City.
 
2012-10-07 07:34:06 PM
It's garbage, AND it's over-carbonated. Almost as bad as Zima. If you don't drink IPAs then you just don't drink good beer, period.

You're a tard, period.


Good beer comes in more than just an IPA format, and I say this as someone that defaults to IPA's when given a choice.
 
2012-10-07 07:39:04 PM
Yuengling Black and Tan - Same price as Bud/Miller/Coors, 10 times the flavor/quality. As speakandgo said, it's a good first step on the road from mass produced American crap towards true craft brews.

What? I like and regularly drink India Pale Ales, Pale Ales, Rye Ales, Brown Ales, Stouts, Porters, Wheat Beers, Red Lagers, yada yada. Why limit yourself to just IPAs?

It's a Pennsyltucky thing. It's like the whole Paterno Cult: It's all they know, so they don't know any better.

I've had Yuengling many times. It's dirt cheap, and it tastes like it. If the 7-11 has run out of better stuff (like malt liquor and night train and synthetic engine oil), it's fine.
 
2012-10-07 09:27:27 PM
Went to visit my sister in Jersey this summer. We grew up in Chicago but my sister got hooked on Yuengling living out east. It's a giant Meh.

Natty Boh on the other hand is awesome.

I've gotten really spoiled living in San Antonio... SOOOO much great beer here. Texas Hill Country was settled by Germans, and is dotted with both breweries and wineries. If a bar doesn't have at least 30+ types of beer available, they sneer at it here. And to be able to buy a pitcher of a microbrew while watching a film at the Drafthouse is awesome!!!

A new Whole Foods just opened up the road from me. Not only is it huge by Whole Foods standards (37,000 square feet) it has a bar inside. You can swing by, grab a pint of microbrewed delight, and pick up fresh organic bacon and sausage.

The menu at the Drafthouse:

Bite me, overpriced coke and crappy bag of popcorn.

And this is what you should see in a foodie-oriented grocery store:

Sorry Trader Joe's, Texas' Whole Foods has outwitted you.

People downgrade Yuengling because they think it should be compared with top beers that are more expensive. It should be compared with mass market beers like Bud Light and Coors, where it is clearly better.

Also, I'm impressed that Shiner has traveled outside of Texas, at least in knowledge of it.
 
2012-10-08 12:05:52 AM
Here in Ohio, it's six pack is actually a buck or so cheaper than Bud and Miller. At its price point, it's the best beer out there. The light version is also one of the few light beers that actually has some taste.
 
2012-10-08 01:25:01 AM
"Yuengling, now the largest American-owned brewer, says it likely won't build its next brewery in Pennsylvania for business reasons"

In other words, the Yuengling family wants some sweet tax breaks and concessions from the state to build here.
 
2012-10-08 03:55:58 AM
Having drunk Yuengling for many years now, I wonder if anyone agrees with me that the hopping has been pretty variable. Sometimes I have noticed that the lager seems to be overhopped, other times fine, and sometimes even underhopped. I'm guessing this varies with the supply but it might be a changing recipe. In my experience Yuengling lager has been awful when overhopped, but at other times perfectly drinkable, and definitely better than shiatty stuff. I've drunk less over time as I've learned more about beer and diversified my experience.

Best Pennsylvania brewery is Weyerbacher, hands down, Of course they do smaller batches and a wide variety of brews.

Since I've had loads of the Y and don't hate the stuff, and have been around lots of people drinking it, I think I'm qualified to say that (1) it isn't as great as uneducated and inexperienced beer drinkers make it out to be, and (2) people frequently choose "domestic light beers" over Yuengling because they think Yuengling lager is a "heavy" beer, which is utterly insane. Right now they are pushing the "light lager" which has been around more than 10 years, I believe. They are advertising that it has 99 calories, I think. Personally I think that the regular lager is a pretty light beer.

The moral of the story is that if people want good beer and they are buying Yuengling, they have been deceived. But Yuengling is now engaging in a systematic dumbing down of their beer for the sake of the American domestic and domestic light drinker. They are trying to capture some share of a huge market, instead of peeling away craft brew drinkers, which will never happen unless they start brewing something awesome. So their marketing policy is probably a sound one, and whatever they do to slice into inBev and SABMiller's market share can't be all bad.
