“America’s Oldest Brewery” is bringing its first new year-round brew in nearly two decades to the Philadelphia region.
Pottsville, Pennsylvania-based D.G. Yuengling & Son celebrated the expansion of its Golden Pilsner to Philly at "an intimate event" Thursday night at Morgan’s Pier at Penn’s Landing. Yuengling’s all-female sixth generation brewers, Jen, Wendy and Sheryl Yuengling, planned to be on hand to talk about the 18-month process of bringing the beer to life.
The Golden Pilsner, what Yuengling calls a “modern pilsner crafted with the perfect balance of hop and malt character for crisp, smooth refreshment,” was first revealed in Cleveland, Ohio; Atlanta, Georgia; and Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, back in April.
Over the past few months, Yuengling has expanded Golden Pils sales to some stores in Delaware, New Jersey and closer to Philly. By the end of the year, the all malt beer that combines pale and specialty malts, and Hallertau and Saaz hops that packs 135 calories per serving and a 4.7 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) will be available across all 22 states Yuengling serves.
"We continue to listen to our fans and we saw an opportunity to deliver a new Yuengling beer that complements our core portfolio of iconic beers including Traditional Lager, Light Lager and Black & Tan," Jen Yuengling said.
"We’re excited for consumers to try it."
