You shouldn't have to use the words "settle" and "Boulevard" in the same sentence. Their wheat is one of the best ones widely available, and their Dry Stout, Bully Porter, and Lunar ales are all excellent as well. Even the Zon is a decent shot at the witbier style. Plus they are all fairly reaonsably priced only be a little more expensive per 6 pack/12 pack of bottles than Miller or Bud products.

I guess people don't realize that beer can go bad. Sure domestics like Bud and Miller are so filtered and pasteurized and generally lacking that they stay forever, but the smaller less mass produced can skunk. This is especially true with non filtered beers. Hell some of them only have a shelf life of a few months.

I fully realized that beer can go bad. I didn't realize the age until after I opened it and took a big swig. It's not Yuengling's fault, but it sure made me not want another one for a while.

Sorry, I realize I'm a little late to the party, but I was hoping someone might be able to give me an idea of how long Yuengling is good for? So far I haven't been able to get a definitive answer, but because I'm going to have to drive a couple of hours to purchase it and I only want to make the trip once, I'll need to plan accordingly. Thanks!

It's a great beer at it's price point. It's one of the best, if not the best. But, honestly, it's not worth driving two hours for. Take that gas money, add it to what you'd pay for Yuengling, and buy a better, pricier, more premium beer locally.

But . . . if you're bound and determined, I can tell you that I've had a case last nearly two months in my garage, even in the summer. Just watch out. What really skunks beer is extreme temp changes, which can and does occur in the supply chain long before it ever reaches you.

Yuengling is the only thing I keep on tap, since almost everyone I know drinks it these days.

I'm just glad my friends and family got over Labatt's, I was getting sick of that shit.

I bought a bottle of 120 minute from a wine store on 23 towards Delaware called "On the Vine". This was over 5 years ago, but it was still illegal. I asked the lady how she got it, she proceeded to smirk. $15 for 1 12 oz bottle...

I have always been perplexed by the lack of Yuengling love from our neighbors. Maybe we should deny them Great Lakes brews, although they are in another "class".

not that I would ever touch that abomination. Would rather chew on a pine cone. Hell, the last IPA I had tasted like pinesol. Granted, the 60min tasted superior to that brew which I shall never refer to by name, but compared to my favorite beer types, IPAs are... my brain lacks words that can translate my personal feelings of betrayal by the brewers of IPAs.

Though Dogfish Head's Theobroma is obviously the nectar the gods used as inspiration for godly nectars.
Brother I don't know what kind of ass pile swill you were drinking but IPAs are far and away some of the best beer on the planet. If you're in OH check out the Hippie IPA by Buckeye Brewing and the Columbus Beer Company IPA or even Weasel Boy IPA.

Seriously, most of the best beers I've had are IPAs. English IPAs, Imperial IPAs, Black IPAs...

That class being "tastes like shit"? I have tried and tried to like GL beers and it's just not happening. Closest I got was the Lake Erie Monster or some such.

Btw, what's with all the OH people in this thread? LOL

I'm with Perk. It's really good at it's price point, and it's gets bonus points from me for being an indie, but it's nothing exceptional. I'll take it over Bud every time, but that isn't much of an endorsement :^D

I'd take Yuengling over just about anything at its price point.

I appreciate it. It probably doesn't come as a shock that I know very little about beer, but while I haven't decided yet exactly how determined I am, you were quite helpful. Thank you.

Generally a good rule of thumb is 6 months for a "normal" ABV beer. Higher alcohol content lets it last a bit longer, which isn't Yuengling.

Not a fan. I'll take an offering from Goose Island or Dark Horse instead.
