Yuengling’s Ice Cream Returns

Yuengling Ice Cream

Established in 1829, D. G. Yuengling & Son is the oldest operating brewery in the U.S. I was more than a little surprised to learn that, as of 2011, it was also tied with the Boston Beer Company for the largest brewery in the United States by volume.

With prohibition, Yuengling started to produce ice cream in 1920, which was followed by other dairy products. The Black & Tan ice cream was common throughout the Pennsylvania area until 1985, when the manufacturing stopped.

After 30 years, Yuengling is once again producing ice cream. For some reason, I think I’ll have to seek some of this out in Philadelphia. If it was called anything other than Black & Tan, I doubt I’d be intrigued, but I think I’ll have to have myself a pint.

This is Post #600 on C-to-C.
