Sam Adams (either Boston Lager or whatever seasonal is out) is my standby. I like Yeungling when I can get it (it's not sold in New England!) or if I'm feeling adventurous, I'll grab a mircobrew that looks god. I found one outta Long Island from Blue Point Brewing that was a summer Toasted Lager. It went killer with grilled food!

If I'm gonna drink Jack, it needs to be Gentleman Jack. Or Jack Daniels Single Barrel.

Oh, and Yuengling is one of my favorite beers. I bring a few cases back every time I go to PA. They don't sell in Ohio.

Yuengling is pretty awesome. I'm also one of those people that will bring back a case or two when I get a chance. I wish they sold it in Ohio.

I can get Yuengling in Los Angeles but you can't get it in Ohio?

Iron City beer (yuck) is brewed in Pittsburgh and is not available in much of Ohio. But funny enough, you can get it at the Brew Thru on the Outer Banks. River water = canal water maybe?

If you notice, Yuengling is not on the list of available beers.

I don't know why the tasty brew isn't sold in Ohio, but I blame Ohio for it.

Ditto with NH. I've talked to people at a few of my local beer shops & wholesalers and they tell me that they have at least a few requests per week for it.

I can walk outside my house and breathe in the aroma when they're brewing.
Bwaaah-ha-ha-hah. Not to rub it in or anything. :)

Yuengling is limiting the markets they deliver to. They don't want to get so large that the quality suffers. They had some issues with that when they tried doing some brewing down in the old Stroh's brewery outside of Allentown. The family wants to keep close control over the business. The current owner has 4 daughters, and if they want to take over the business, they will have to buy it from him.

We have a discount beverage chain in California called BevMo. They must "import" cases from PA...it's the only place in California I've found Yuengling.

You suck. ;)

I can undstand that. They want to make sure the quality is up to par, espeaclly since the family name is on it. The closests brewery to me (besides a TINY mircobrewery called Manchester Brewing) is a big Budweiser plant in Merrimack. Budweiser! Bleeeech!

The good news is that I have friends who go to NY state on occasion, so they sometimes bring back a case (or two) or a six-pack for my dad and myself to share. In turn, we usually share with friends for a treat.

Another reason to visit east central PA this summer, Hopman. And while you're at it, make time to take the brewery tour. It's awesome. Definitely not one of those stand behind the glass and hope to see something tours.

Of course I wanna visit the Yeungling brewery! I wonder how many cases I can fit in the back of my Ranger before the cops get suspicious? ;)

The Best Beer Going right now is Leinenkugel Fireside NutBrown and I will say the most Overrated is Troegs Mad Elf! Pottsvillle tour of the Yeungling Brewery is not to be missed and they are not limiting anything.. They just a while back opened a Big Brewery in Tampa.. They have 3 Breweries total and expanding ..

^Gross. Fireside Nut Brown is way too overwhelming for me. It's like they took every spice they could and added 5 times what the recipe called for.

^^ The Tampa brewery has been operating under Yuengling for at least 10 years. I know it pre-dates the new brewery they built outside of Pottsville.
They've said themselves they're only going to add markets that they are sure they can service without compromising the quality of the product. In other words, they don't want to mass produce urine samples like Anheuser does.

There. Fixed it for you. ;)

If you've gotta drink a"big name" beer, I'll stick with a Sam Adams. Other than that, I'm lucky enough to live in an area (New England) where there a buttloads of good beers. I can find good stuff from Magic Hat, Otter Creek, Tuckerman's, and even Gary's wherever I go.
