Yuengling chocolate porter? With Hershey’s?

The Pottsville folks teased this yesterday on social media and revealed it this morning.

It’s 4.7% alcohol with “smooth chocolate tones” and looks pretty good to me:

Here’s the blurb from the Yuengling website:

Yuengling, America’s Oldest Brewery, and Hershey, America’s most iconic chocolate, are collaborating, for the first time in their history, to provide a once in a lifetime creation for their loyal fans to enjoy. America loves beer and America loves chocolate, so Yuengling and Hershey joined forces to bring the best of both worlds to their fans with a limited-edition Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter.  This collaboration gives consumers the opportunity to savor and indulge in the unique beer from America’s Oldest Brewery and America’s most beloved chocolate brand.

Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter is a fresh take on Yuengling’s 200-year-old Dark Brewed Porter.  Don’t miss your chance to enjoy, for a limited time only, America’s #1 craft brewery, Yuengling, come together with America’s most iconic chocolate brand, Hershey’s, for their first-ever collaboration — Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter.

The choco porter will be available from October through February. Looks like the beer finder on the website isn’t updated yet, but I assume they’ll have that rocking and rolling soon, so you can find the nearest location offering this bad boy.

  3. Too bad they didn’t do a collab with Troegs considering they are in Hershey PA.

    They only teamed up with Yuengling since they are both huge Trump supporters.

    1. not really, at least not to a huge extent.

      Dick, the soon to be former owner, had at least one of Trump’s sons at the brewery during campaign season in 2016. Like they do with all kinds of politicians and celebrities. Think Tom Wolf visited this year.

      The brewery doesn’t donate to campaigns as far as I know.

      The daughters who all but run it now are smart, fairly moderate, forward thinking brewers.

      But whatevs
