For the first time in 17 years, Yuengling – the oldest brewery in America – is releasing a beer that will be sold year-round and isn’t just seasonal. Yuengling Golden Pilsner is, as the name implies, a pilsner that is both thoroughly modern and reliably old-fashioned – like Yuengling itself.
For the most part, the old-time brewery from Pottsville, Pennsylvania brews their original lager, as well as a light version, and Black and Tan. There’s also the Lord Chesterfield Ale and a rarely-seen porter. They experiment with some seasonal brews every once in a while, such as Oktoberfest. But still, Yuengling aren’t known for their incredibly diverse lineup. But it looks like they’ve now decided to have a little fun and introduce something new in time for summer.
Golden Pilsner is a light, refreshing drink, brewed with Hallertau and Saaz hops from Bavaria and Bohemia, respectively, and combining pale and specialty malts, according to Yuengling. It clocks in at 4.7% ABV, and 135 calories per bottle. Yuengling wants it to be light, easy and smooth – good for social events and outdoor activities this summer – while still offering serious taste.
Golden Pilsner will be out April 1, just in time for the coming festivities of the warmer months. Grab a case and try it for yourself.
