Most overrated beer on earth.

this capitalizes on two things they know how to do in PA: make great beer and great ice cream. Snobs can stay home while we go out and enjoy ourselves.

Yuengling is cheap beer you buy when you're broke and from PA.

RickyWilliams'sBong: Most overrated beer on earth.


Whatever. It's not highly rated by anyone, it's just popular because it's dirt cheap and tolerable.

That's like saying McDonalds is the most overrated fast food, or Wal-Mart is the most overrated store. When was the last time you saw anyone even bother to review or rate a Yuengling? It's just there.

Yeah, my PA friends go for Yyengling when they're broke.  My go to is Bud Lite because I am white trash Texan and Shiner is apparently fancy now.

Also some microbrewers like it.

Guessing you haven't spent a lot of time in Pennsyltucky (especially the central part).  People don't generally whine about not having a McDonald's nearby and treat it as though it's In-N-Out.

I don't know if it is fancy, but the cost seems to imply it.  The most expensive "cheap" beer out there.

Yuengling is a rock solid lager, and has been for decades. It's not a craft beer, it's not hoppy, but so farking what, even beeradvocate rates it well, because in its own class its a stand-out beer. Compared to the little gypsy brewery that only makes small batches of triple IPA that only you know about, no it's not all that, but that isn't the same product.

Let me clarify for you: it's relatively *good* cheap beer you buy when you're broke and from PA.

RickyWilliams'sBong: Rubbing alcohol to distract from the skunked taste?


I think that's your problem.  I do find Yuengling 'skunks' faster or more drastically than other beers.

But when it's not skunked, it's a fine beer.  A perfect beer if you're going to have 30 people come over and you don't want to spend a ton of money on beers.

That's because they use green bottles.  Maybe someone who knows about beer can answer this question, but why would any company use green or clear bottles for their beer.  Brown bottles help prevent skunking which is why most beer companies use them, but some beers like Yuengling and Heineken still use green bottles.  Are the green bottles cheaper?  Is it just something that no one wanted to change?

If Yuengling cost 9 dollars for a six pack at the store, or 5 bucks for a pint at the bar, then yes, I'd agree that it's horribly overrated.  But a six-pack is 6 bucks at Kroger, and a pint runs me about 3 bucks at the bar, the same price as Bud and Miller, and it's vastly superior to those 2 (and most other "macro brew" American beers), so, no, not overrated at all

I'm pretty sure green bottled beer now tastes skunky to me, even when it isn't.
 
2014-02-11 11:52:00 AM  
every bottled yuengling i've had has been nasty, skunked crap.
in the can, though, it's the best for the price.
sure, i like fancy beers and whatnot, but hell, i keep a case of yuengling in my outdoor fridge for yardwork.

just never, ever, buy it in the bottle.  it's a completely different beer.

Also never got the cult Yuengling love. Its OK and affordable, but usually about as good as any other regional-sized lager brewery.

/CSB. To this day my mom refuses to believe that Yuengling isn't owned by the Chinese.

That's because Yuengling is beer. Budweiser is water (less expensive)

RickyWilliams'sBong: Most overrated beer on earth.


yeah, it doesn't have 17lbs of hops and the consistency of molasses in January. Also doesn't cost $5/bottle so... probably terribly overrated.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Let me clarify for you: it's relatively *good* cheap beer you buy when you're broke and from PA.


-yuengling costs more than "cheap beer"
-yuengling only started in PA (as, allegedly, the first brewery in our nation).

They are everywhere now. When I was in the Army back in the 20th century, I could take a case with me down south and sell it for 4x. yuengling figured out they were leaving money on the table and have been selling all over the nation for about 20 years now

nosferatublue: it's just popular because it's dirt cheap reasonably priced and tolerable. better than dozens of popular beers both below and above it's price point


FYP

I didn't rtfa but Yuengling turned into a creamery during prohibition. They were still (secretly) brewing alcohol behind a false wall in their brewery, but the ice cream gave them a cover for the dry years.

Yuengling was the first to arrive at the White House with loads of kegs for the massive party that was the first night after the end of prohibition.

It's one of those few beers that is significantly better in a can than a bottle. While green glass lets in more light and only takes minutes of exposure to start the skunking process, I'm not suggesting that the bottled beer from them sucks because it's skunked. Even fresh, in the bottle just doesn't seem to hit the spot quite as well. (I also like it in a can over tap).

On the note of green/clear glass bottles, I'd like to see everyone start using dark brown glass... but you will notice that before you open the case, green glass or clear is already being rather well protected by the opacity of the cardboard box. ;-)

Just don't buy green/clear bottles out of display cases after the case is opened.

I never had a problem with beer getting skunked in the case (even after a few heat/cool cycles, which is actually harmless) unless I was buying a very old case with a few mm of dust on top... or out of the lit display cases.

poorjon: Also never got the cult Yuengling love. Its OK and affordable, but usually about as good as any other regional-sized lager brewery.


This isn't complicated. People drink a lot of Yuengling when they're young because it's cheap, decent, and everywhere. Then, when they're older, it's still good beer, but now it's got all of those great memories all wrapped up around its flavor. If they move away, the effect is even greater.

It's the same with most of those other regional brews you mention. Shiner, in particular, strikes me as a beer that has the exact same thing going for it.

According to their website, they are in 14 states and the District of Columbia. Certainly not "all over the nation". It's basically just the east coast from NY down.

Yeah, that's the ticket. They were brewing near beer and that's how they got a truck full of beer to DC in the time it takes to drive a truck to DC.

I was in Prague and two guys on the team were from Philadelphia and had some cases of Yuengling shipped over in their gear. There were Czechs, Germans, and Belgians there that all thought it was a very solid beer. Anyway, if it was good enough for your grandpa it should be good enough for you.
 
2014-02-11 05:59:49 PM  
When colleagues from Germany (at a job I used to work at) came to visit, they consistently praised Yuengling.  I'd wager the average German knows more about good beer than your average trendy-craft-beer-psuedo-expert.

I love Yuengling and I still disagree with you. You're relying on the outdated stereotype that Americans, even Americans who spend considerable time and money on beer, don't know anything about beer. That's complete farking bullshiat. Get with the times, gramps. America produces a good deal of the best beer in the world.

That said, I wouldn't trust the opinion of someone who doesn't like Yuengling. Not because they don't know anything, but because they and I are unlikely to agree on much.
