"America loves beer and America loves chocolate, so Yuengling and Hershey joined forces to bring the best of both worlds to their fans with a limited-edition Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter," the Pottsville, Schuylkill County-based brewery said on its website. "This collaboration gives consumers the opportunity to savor and indulge in the unique beer from America’s Oldest Brewery and America’s most beloved chocolate brand."
Yuengling said the beer is made by combining Hershey's chocolate syrup, Hershey's cocoa powder, and cocoa nibs with its nearly 200-year-old Dark Porter recipe.
Calling the beer "a fresh take on Yuengling’s 200-year-old Dark Brewed Porter," Yuengling said it's the first time it has teamed up with Hershey.
The beer first came out last year, but was available in draft only.
Yuengling said it is bottling the beer in response to high demand from consumers.
"We listened to our fans who were clamoring for this delicious collaboration," the brewery said. "We heard our fans and saw consumers last year doing everything in their power to get a taste of Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter. Now, consumers of legal drink age will have the opportunity to enjoy our uniquely chocolatey beer from wherever they are this just in time for the holiday season."
