Brewing Report: Yuengling Lager

Yuengling claims to be the America’s oldest brewery in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. This is the house lager at the Spusk house. The brewery originated in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, but also happens to brewed in Tampa, Florida with water imported from Pottsville to preserve the taste. It is a classic lager - a perfect blend of hops and malt and so smooth.

*This is the sixth installment of a multi-week series on beer where I will be reviewing regional beers from across the country. Special thanks this week to Glenn Sparks for his help in tasting. Enjoy!


  1. I first had Yuengling at a pit stop during a road trip to New York the first summer after my husband and I were married. Now we make sure to grab a case of Yuengling every time we're in PA.

  2. We have friends up here that love Yuengling so much that they drove all the way down to PA just to buy the beer...they filled their car with cases of it and drove back!

  3. Oh Yuengling! I have not had you since I was home in MD for my best friend's wedding. Why, oh why, are you not distributed to the Chicagoland area?
