Lager. Yeungling. Gainesville, Florida.


D. G. Yuengling & Son is the oldest operating brewing company in the United States, established in 1829. It is one of the largest breweries by volume in the country. Based on sales in 2011, Yuengling was tied with the Boston Beer Company, maker of Samuel Adams brands, as the largest American-owned brewery.[1] Its headquarters are in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.[2] Yuengling produces about 2.5 million barrels annually, operating two Pennsylvania facilities, and a brewery in Tampa, Florida.


I know Yeungling as a Pennsylvania beer that is beloved in Philadelphia so finding it randomly stocked my fridge in Florida was like tasting home.  My best friend and I have dubbed it our “shot beer” since I am 5 ft anything with a higher alcohol concentration than Coors Light will make me sloopy really quickly.  Still it’s delicious and I can never resist when I see it on the menu or in my fridge, in this case. Thank you Yeungling beer gods for this sweet sweet liquid bread nectar.
