Quick Sip: Yuengling
Yuengling. Say that ten times fast.
While it may sound like nothing more than a child’s toy or an overplayed rap group, Yuengling is a force to be reckoned with. On a trip to North Carolina last week, I was lucky enough to take a quick sip of Yuengling at one of Charlotte’s great sports bars – the BlackFinn.
I first tried Yuengling in Florida and was immediately ridiculed for never having heard of it before. An urgent history lesson ensued and I quickly found that Yuengling is the pride of Pottsville, Pennsyvlania and is notorious for being America’s Oldest Brewery.
According to their Web site, Yuengling is only available in NY, PA, DE, MD, DC, VA, NC, SC, TN, AL and of course, FL. So unfortunately it may be a while before I can satisfy that craving again. If you know of anywhere that sells Yuegling or has it on tap locally, please let us know!
