mmm lager

PostBy: lincolnmania On: Tue Jan 01, 2008 7:19 am

when i moved to the coal regions in 2005 i was pleased that the lager was so inexpensive......whenever i get a local visitor and offer them a beer, they call yuengling pottsville skunk pee...now my friend in south jersey pays 21 bucks a case down there and when i lived in berks county it was 16 bucks a case.....i think it's the best beer on the planet.....we have a 1/4 barrel of lager on tap in a 1970's philco fridge......i grabbed a can for illustration.....and didnt feel like getting a mug......why do the locals hate it? miller and coors light seem popular.. yuck

That is my favorite beer. I discovered Yuengling a long time ago. I'm not a fan of imported beer, I always liked domestic products. Most of my friends prefer Yuengling. Once you are used to Amber Lager other nationwide brands all taste watered down.

I drink Yuengling or another fine Pa beer (Straub's) exclusively.
I try to drink enough to keep the Pa economy going. :lol:

Ya know what? My grandfather was drinking Yuengling long before it became "popular". He also drank Schmidt's of Philadelphia.
I always thought they had similar tastes. Needless to say because of this upbringing I prefer a good "flavorful" real beer.
Today however I'm in the wine. :oops:

Happy New Year to all of you :cheers:

I like Yuengling myself but would rather have a Beck's.

BAHHHHH!!
In my opinion Becks wilts next to Yuengling. But everyone has their own tastes and opinions.
BTW-I was drinking Yuengling before it was "popular" as well.

Beck's is a great beer. I had Warsteiner last night. I also had Weinerschnitzel, Potato Dumplings, & Sauerkraut.
Yes, I am of German decent and proud of it :beer:

Thanks WNY, that was some cool reading. Some of that stuff I knew but some I didn't and I have lived near Pittsburgh all of my life.

Well I should clarify, I like Beck's Dark. We got a half of that and half of Yuengling for my Brothers bachelor party. The beck's didn't last very long, the yuengling ran a close second. The light got dumped down the drain after the third day (yea it was very long party held at the spot we going to have get together) :P I'd have to say I usually can't tell much difference between draft and bottled but that Beck's was noticeably better than the bottled version.

Do you remember the other beer from Pittsburgh brewing?
Hop'n'Gator. It was disgusting stuff. There were two varieties. Still makes me shudder to think about it. It was from the era of Champale, Pink Champale and Cold Duck. First malt cooler, Hop-n-Gator (sued for trademark infringement by Gatorade and ceased production). One of the flavors was lemon though. one of the cans featured a picture of a glass with a palm tree in it and the other a snifter.
