Lager and Lager Light (I like the light stuff) is my fave. Black & Tan I can do sometimes. Porter is much too thick for my tastes.
I still wished this state would carry it. I once asked a friend of mine (who manages a liquor store) why they didn't carry Yuengling. It had something to do with distrubution issues. I don't remember the details.
I am still working on it. :-P It's in every other damn state around me.
Luckily for Clint it's distributed in South Carolina now, according to the website.
The brewery is a nice "side visit" en route to Knoebels. :-)

This may have been addressed before, but what do I do if I'm a single rider? I want to get on Thunderbolt and I'm willing to wait for a front row. What can I / should I do and what should I expect from the angry pre-paired-up throngs?
Well at the top of the ramp before the station we have a team member sitting there with a 52" tall height stick. This person is responsable for pairing single riders together. Ususally I'll have you wait to the side until one comes but if it takes too long I'll tell you to just go find a seat and we'll find someone when you get up there. Just make sure you listen to the person on the mic because if there is another single rider we will make an announcement to pair them up. Most of the time the problem is that people don't hear us making an announcement and don't raise there hand when they don't have a partner. If we have an extra person - we'll even hop in for a ride. It all depends on the person checking for height and how they handle things.
BTW - When do you plan on going?
Here's To Shorter Lines & Longer Trip Reports!
If you've ever seen the brewery, you'll know that it's basically built in to the side of a mountain. There's no possible way to expand, so they can't keep up with demand and had to pull back to their strongholds.
They didn't want to go in to any new areas, and then not be able to fill orders.
Thankfully, Yuengling bought a shuttered Stroh's brewery some time last year. I'm not sure if it's up and running yet, but when it is I'd expect some more rapid expansion.
At one time, they were doing limited brewing in the former Schaefer/Stroh's brewery (along I-78 outside of Allentown), but dropped that because they didn't want to brew anywhere without having one of their own brewmasters on-site full time. Last I heard, they were making Smirnoff Ice in that brewery.
Shall I call Yuengling's and tell them to step it up for PPP weekend? BTW guys, 4 daughters 0 sons... anybody want to marry a brewery heiress? :)
