A collaboration we may not have known we needed is coming thanks to a collaboration with Yuengling, America’s Oldest Brewery, and Hershey’s. The two companies are teaming up to launch a limited-edition chocolate porter that will be available beginning in mid-October 2019.
It is a partnership that makes perfect sense, with Yuengling and Hershey’s being two of the most iconic brands in Pennsylvania.
Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter will have a 4.7% ABV and will pair well with everything from barbequed and smoked meats, to cheeses and desserts, according to the release.
“As the 6th Generation of the Yuengling family, we have a 190-year history of listening to our fans and looking for new ways to deliver quality and memorable drinking experiences,” said Jennifer Yuengling, Vice President of Operations and 6th Generation Brewer, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., in a statement.
“We saw a unique opportunity to partner with Hershey’s, a brand known worldwide for its iconic, delicious tasting chocolate, to deliver fans our first-ever beer collaboration. We spent nearly a year developing our Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter and are excited for the world to indulge in the classic taste of Yuengling Dark Brewed Porter blended with the unmistakable taste of Hershey’s chocolate.”
“Bringing together over 300 years of craft and experience is quite rare in 2019; however, that’s exactly what we did bringing together the Yuengling brewing masters with the chocolate making expertise of Hershey. This Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter is sure to surprise and delight the chocolate fans, and the avid beer-lovers, among us that are looking to try something new and delicious.” said Ernie Savo, Senior Director Global Licensing and Business Development, The Hershey Company.
The beer will be available via draft only in bars and restaurants at locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts, West Virginia, New York, Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington D.C., Delaware, Indiana, and Kentucky.
