Here we are, out of the cave, cooking room and other areas, now getting ready to enter the bottling and canning facility (the smaller doorway just at the facing corner in center-frame). The various products are scheduled via computer. On any particualr day, a pre-determined specific product is sent through the feeders filling bottles and cans. Unfortunately, the bottling facility, due to health considerations, was a very quick look but it was still quite interesting. More on that tomorrow.
Here is a Listing and description of the various Beers that Yuengling Produces:
"Lager" is the company's flagship beer, and what is received if a "lager" is ordered throughout many parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. It is usually sold in green bottles prominently featuring the word "LAGER" on the label but, is also available in cans, and brown quart bottles as well as 22 ounce bottles (colloquially known as "bombers"), now discontinued and replaced with 24 ounce cans. Yuengling Lager is 4.4 percent ABV.
"Light Lager" is a lower-calorie version of the Traditional Lager.
"Yuengling Premium Beer" is a standard American pilsener.
"Yuengling Premium Light Beer" is a lower-calorie version of the Premium Beer.
"Original Black & Tan" is a mixture of Yuengling Premium Beer (40%) and Dark-Brewed Porter (60%). It was introduced in 1986.
"Dark-Brewed Porter" has a very dark cola color, appearing almost black in the glass with a pale tan head, and has a strong malt flavor. Rather than using the traditional top-fermenting ale yeasts used in most porters, Yuengling's porter is bottom-fermented; few mainstream breweries produce this style. Originally known as "Pottsville Porter," this beer is notable for being one of the few porters commercially available from the late 1960s to the early 1980s.
"Lord Chesterfield Ale" Named for Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, this is Yuengling's hoppiest beer and only true ale. Like the Traditional Lager, it is usually sold in green bottles (but also in cans) and has an element of corn in its profile. It is very carbonated and tends to sprout a large but short-lived head when poured. As of 2007, Lord Chesterfield is no longer sold in kegs. However, quarter kegs were put back on the market in October 2008.
Introduced in February, 2009, is a return of a discontinued beer last brewed in 1970s. According to company sources, it will be sold as a draught-only, spring seasonal beer. Due to its popularity, Yuengling Bock beer was made available for kegs and cases in January 2010.
Was produced for the 2011 Octoberfest season.
But is not being produced now.
