A popular Pennsylvania collaboration is back.
D.G. Yuengling & Son and Hershey’s have announced the 2022 release of Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter.
Launching for the fourth year in a year, this seasonal beer is now available in 6- and 12-pack bottles, and on draft.
Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter marked the first-ever beer collaboration for the two iconic Pennsylvania brands. At 4.7% ABV, this brew combines Yuengling’s 193-year-old Dark Brewed Porter recipe with the taste of Hershey’s chocolate.
The result is flavors of chocolate with caramel and dark roasted malts for a rich and chocolaty finish, the company reports. The beer pairs well with everything from barbequed and smoked meats to cheeses and desserts.
“We continue to be amazed by the excitement our fans show for this special collaboration beer,” says Jennifer Yuengling, Vice President of Operations and 6th generation family member, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “One of our top priorities is listening and staying connected to our fans, which is why we are so excited to bring back this fall-favorite that appeals to all drinkers looking for something special.”
