    The first brewery in the United States was the Eagle Brewery in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. It opened in 1829, and in 1873 the name changed to D.G Yuengling and Son. I guess that makes their beer the oldest in America. Currently the oldest Brewery in the world is in Germany. Weihenstephan has been brewing since 1040.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    Yup, Yuengling. Their black & tan is one of my favorite CHEAP beers!
     
  3. people are fanatical about yuengling around here cause it's so close to where i live.

    when you go into many bars/restaurants and you're asking what they have on tap many times the person will just say "lager" instead of yuengling lager. you get used to it i guess.


    yuengling yager is the one of the first beers i "grew up" drinking. now, though, i CANNOT drink there lager out of a bottle anyway. it was just a weird after-taste.

    i like there ban n tan better then they're lager BUT i think it has a funky after-taste too... still, ill get it every once n a while.
