This past year, we’ve had the best time celebrating our 190th anniversary as America’s Oldest Brewery. From commemorative packaging and limited-edition beers to special promotions and events, we have loved marking this milestone with our loyal fans, and the fun doesn’t stop there!
Earlier this month, we announced our partnership with Hershey’s, America’s most beloved chocolate brand, to create our first-ever beer collaboration: Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter. We are thrilled to welcome Hershey’s into the Yuengling family and celebrate our combined 300 years of expertise and rich heritages. As two iconic Pennsylvania companies, we not only share a commitment to creating delicious products, but also to celebrating our passionate fans and delivering new ways for them to experience our brands.
Over the past year, we have worked with the Hershey’s team to create a truly indulgent, one-of-a-kind beer experience. Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter has been carefully crafted by infusing our nearly 200-year-old Dark Brewed Porter recipe with the world-famous taste of Hershey’s chocolate. The result? A deliciously, smooth porter with hints of dark roasted malts and a delightfully chocolatey finish.
But don’t just hear it from us! We are so grateful for the overwhelmingly positive responses we’ve seen so far in USA Today, FOX Business, Food & Wine, BuzzFeed, Elite Daily and more. Of course, this would not be at all possible without our loyal fans who have been equally enthusiastic about our new beer:
“Wow! What a great combo – distinct chocolate aroma and taste but not overwhelming and mouthfeel is smooth and balanced. I’m happy regardless the outcome of the Eagles game.” – Kitty M.
“2 Pennsylvania staples had a baby and she came out pure perfection!” – Nina W.
“Had the delicious pleasure of being one of the 1st to try the collaboration of @Hersheys and @Yuengling_Beer. They nailed it with this.” – Andrew A.
Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter is available starting mid-October – just in time for fall and the holiday season. Our chocolatey brew is the perfect way to toast to life’s most special occasions from Halloween through Valentine’s Day. It even pairs well with holiday dishes – from hearty meats to cheeses and desserts.
This limited-edition sweet treat can be tasted on draft in bars and restaurants in over a dozen states, but only while supplies last. Beer lovers and chocolate fans can find their closest location by visiting the “Find Our Beer” link at www.yuengling.com.
