  • Lets talk beer

    OK, quiz time. Who is the largest American owned brewery? The answer will shock you



    Answer: Yuengling! They also employ less people then Sam Adams but they make more money. Bud and Miller are no longer American owned and Miller owns Coors. I saw this on TV the other night, they were interviewing Dick Yeungling. Yuengling is building a new brewery in Ohio too I believe. They are sold in 14 states

        I prefer to drink beer rather than talk about beer, unless we're doing it at the same time. Oh, wait, I am drinking beer. Yuengling Lager is a great beer, but I can't get it here in WI. I used to drink it in GA. when I lived there.

              Yuengling is great when you need cans and don't want to have to drink that awful stuff that is readily available in cans. And it's generally cheaper than microbrews if you need bulk (think tubing trip.) Their Black and Tan is nice too.

                  A friend in GA turned me onto it and I have been drinking it every since here in FL. Good stuff, for sure. I guess everyone knows Bud Light is going to capture more of the market with a new beer that will be marketed during the Super Bowl this year. Bud Light Platinum will come in a "blue" bottle and will be 6 or 7 % alcohol !

                  On the Kegworks site I frequent, two employees were asked by the Bud folks to taste test it and they said it is good !

                  I say Duh ! . . . it's beer isn't it !

                    Dave the Bartender, any Good rum drink recipes you want to share?

                    I used to work at a Ferd dealership that overlook the Yingaling plant. That was before it was cool to drink it, and all the coal crackers drank it because it was local and CHEAP. Its still local, but not cheap.

                    As for complaining about american made beer, we arent the only Country loosing our beer. In-bev Which bought Bud, has bought alot of other beer companies !

                        Figures you would drink a so-so Belgian beer...

                        Yuengling Lager is a great beer... I love many of my locals... Brooklyn and Blue Point are two of my favorite... Remember that many beers are bottled here, in the USA...

                              Let's hope by making it bigger they don't ruin it.

                              Sometimes more means worse. Let's hope that's not the case here.

                              I like "Yingaling" hope when they start the brewery in OH, it will be more readily available here in MI.
                              For now - in cans (boats and concrete floors go better with cans) I'll bow my hat to the Canadians - Labatts and Molsen.
                              There's always something new to learn.
