Yuengling is also a Family owned private company. Not for sale unless you are a family member. Threw the Teamsters out a few years back too.
Where is Yuengling produced ?
I have never heard of it until today. I grew up in western NY drinking Genesee, Ol’ Vienna, Labatts, Molson and a few other mostly Canadian beers. Labatts was what most people drank because the importer was in Buffalo. Gennesee was the cheap beer made in Rochester. Very few people drank the national brands in the area.
I still miss OV splits. Ol’ Vienna was a Canadian brewery that in addition to regular 12oz bottles they also bottled beer in a 7oz botttles. They called them OV Splits. Rolling Rock also did this a one point. There was a bar in Buffalo called Mulligan’s Brick Bar that on Monday nights they would sell you a case of splits opened with ice poured across it. It was a very popular place with the SUNY Buffalo and Buff State crowd. By the end of the night there was broken glass and spilled beer all over the floor. The place was called the brick bar because the walls and floor were made of brick. They had empty milk crates around the place to put your emties in. At the end of the night(4am) they would sweep up the broken glass and hose the place down.
