    I've sampled every one of those beers. It's hard to believe however, that they sell more than Bud. For instance, Sam Adams is fond of saying that the big breweries (like Bud), spill more beer than Sam Adams brews. It's been my observation that, in the big cities, people tend to drink craft beers and in the country, people tend to drink the American standards, Miller, Bud, etc.
    Regards,

    I've definitely not seen a commercial for Yeungling. Probably why we haven't heard of it. Must have fantastic word of mouth ( didn't see any growth figures, eek, I just scanned) or a huge and loyal base to have that kind of total sales figures with unit price per units that low.

    Yuengling's been growing steadily over the last ten years -- I've watched it spread from the Midwest to the East Coast. They are branding themselves as sort of the 'True Blue American Brew' -- not owned by a conglomerate, etc. Sort of an upgraded profile to PBR.

    It's very mild stuff, I much prefer Sam Adams to it. Like Bud and Rolling Rock, forex. they use grains in addition to barley to lighten the flavor and perhaps save money. ( a major reason Bud uses rice).

    Yuengling brews a great hoppy ale named "Chesterfield" it's light and packs a punch. One of my Wharton buddies is part of the Yuengling dynasty, I've nik'd him ding-a-ling. The brewery sits on the side of a steep hill in the middle of Pottsville, Pa. A town fast forgotten by time and coal dust. It stands still with few Mercedes and lots of bars and Churches. When talking with a local you are expected to end each sentence with the word "ain't" spoken as a question. How was school today? Ain't? That's a fine Mustang, ain't? The Turkey Hill ran out of strawberry ice cream, ain't? It's the north world (nor of Reading, PA) of Rabbit Redoux, Rabbit gets Rich and all things John Updike.

    It's definitely starting to be an East coast thing with regards to Yuengling. I too have seen no advertising but the word of mouth around these parts is rather thick. My buddy and his wife have been drinking it pretty much exclusively for years.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

    I post my own opinions except when posting as a moderator in green.
