Yuengling made the ultimate dessert beer when the brand partnered with Hershey’s last year. As you’d expect, the Chocolate Porter was a hit and the dark brew was filling up mugs across the country. The only problem? It was only available on draft in bars and restaurants in select states. Now it’s back — but this time, you can get it in stores!
Beginning in late September, you’ll be able to get the Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter in bottles and on draft throughout the brand’s 22-state footprint. That means if you can buy Yuengling in your state, Chocolate Porter will be there. It’ll be available from now through Valentine’s Day (because what goes better with chocolate than more chocolate in the form of beer?).
If you didn’t get to try the beer the first time around, you’re in for a real treat. The Chocolate Porter combines Yuengling’s Dark Brewed Porter recipe with the taste of Hershey’s chocolate, which has caramel and dark roasted malt flavor. The special-edition brew has 4.7% ABV, and you better believe that it has a chocolatey finish. While you can sip it with whatever you’d like, the two Pennsylvania brands suggest having it with barbecued meats, cheeses, and desserts.
“Last year, we were overwhelmed by the excitement and passion expressed by our fans for our first-ever collaboration beer,” Jennifer Yuengling, vice president of operations and sixth-generation brewer, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., said in a press release. “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 21+ to enjoy.”
Tonight’s after-dinner drink or nightcap couldn’t get much better than the sweet combination of Yuengling and Hershey’s.
