Last year, Yuengling (America’s oldest brewery) and Hershey (America’s most iconic chocolate brand) joined forces to bring the best of both worlds to their loyal fans with a limited-edition Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter, which was brewed using a combination of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, cocoa powder, and cocoa nibs along with Yuengling’s Dark Brewed Porter. The problem? The chocolatey brew was only available in draft form at select bars and restaurants.
As a result, many fans didn’t get to try this delicious beer collaboration. But fear not, because in response to consumers’ overwhelming demand, Yuengling and Hershey’s have listened, and they’re bringing it back.. and this time it’s available in bottles and draft through Yuengling’s entire 22-state footprint from now through February, giving you plenty of time to enjoy this uniquely delicious brew.
Given that many people are steering clears of bars for the foreseeable future, it makes perfect sense for the two iconic Pennsylvania brands to offer Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter in bottle form this time . But if you’re going out to bars and restaurants, you’ll still be able to find it on tap at select locations as well.
“Last year we were overwhelmed by the excitement and passion expressed by our fans for our first-ever collaboration beer,” said Jennifer Yuengling, Vice President of Operations and 6th Generation Brewer, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “We heard our fans and saw consumers, near and far, scrambling to get their hands on a taste of Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter. So, in keeping with our 191-year tradition of listening to our loyal fans, we decided to release our Chocolate Porter across our entire footprint and in bottles for even more consumers to enjoy.”
You might be wondering what Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter tastes like.
