Two things happened in the mid-1800s, Yuengling Brewery (then called Eagle) opened its doors in Pottsville, PA and the very first Pilsner was brewed four-thousand miles away in Bohemia. A hundred and eighty plus years later, the pale beer and the oldest US brewery are finally getting together.
Just in time for warmer weather, Yuengling’s Golden Pilsner is a crisp and refreshing pale lager with the flavor of Saaz and Hallertau noble hops. It’s looking like a perfect hot day session beer thanks to the 4.7% ABV and clean finish. Since it’s the first year-round brew to come out of Yuengling in seventeen years, we’re betting they worked long and hard to make this worthy of their permanent lineup.
So far Yuengling hasn’t made the jump westward of the Mississippi, but those of you in the east will have something new to try next time the mercury rises. Learn more at Yuengling.
