Who wants to take a trip to Universal Studios to drink Harry Potter’s favorite beverage when they could eat it anywhere? That’s now an option: Yuengling’s Ice Cream has launched a Butterbeer flavor. [More]
Facing federal allegations of violating the Clean Water Act, D.G. Yeungling and Son, the country’s oldest brewing company, has agreed to pay nearly $3 million in penalties and invest $7 million for improvements to its two breweries in Pennsylvania.
In the game of beer thrones, Yuengling has emerged as the winner over the former ruler, Samuel Adams, as the top craft brewer in the country. The win comes after a national beer group switched up its rules about what kinds of ingredients craft brewers can use as a “traditional” beer maker.
If you’re the type of person who’s tried (or is willing to try) mixing beer and ice cream in some kind of alcoholic, creamy float dessert, hearing that there’s a brand of Yuengling ice cream that’s just now returning to shelves might sound like a dream come true. And while it’s true, all right, there’s no actual beer involved in the dessert. [More]
Here’s some news out of Florida that could have been much more horrible: a storage building at a Yuengling brewery near Tampa caught fire over the weekend. While the facility sustained about $1 million in damage, the company reports that their brewing operations won’t be affected. Repeat: there will be no mass beer shortages. [More]
Did Yuengling suddenly get bigger than Miller or Bud? Nope. Both are now foreign-owned. According to AdAge, Yuengling has recently surpassed Sam Adams’ Boston Beer Company as the largest U.S.-owned brewer that manufactures all its beer in the U.S.
