Yuengling is releasing a barrel-aged beer, but only at the brewery

Yuengling Bourbon Barrel Reserve

This Friday, America’s oldest brewery will release a beer that’s a little different from the famed Amber Lager. Yuengling Bourbon Barrel Reserve is coming to Pottsville, Pennsylvania.¬†

Prior to modern refrigeration, brewers of the world used cold caves to ferment beer at colder temperatures. Incidentally, Yuengling has their own hand-dug caves that were in heavy use in the 1800s. It is there that the brewery has been resting a Marzen-style beer in bourbon barrels for 120 days prior to its release.

As much as this release might excite the hardcore Yuengling fans, Bourbon Barrel Reserve is not only draft-only but solely available at the Pottsville taproom on January 11th at 5 pm.

Style: Marzen (Barrel Aged. Bourbon)
Availability: Draft Only. Brewery Release.
Debut: 1/11/19
