Yuengling Partners with Hersheys for Chocolate Porter
Who doesn’t love chocolate or beer? I know I do, but never did I think of combining the two together! Yuengling recently partnered with Hersheys to create a limited edition Chocolate Porter. The two companies are historic in Pennsylvania and have been iconic in the state since the 19th century.
On the collaboration of the two companies and the creation of the beer, Jennifer Yuengling VP of Operations and 6th generation brewer for Yuengling stated, “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.”
Fans of both Hersheys and Yuengling can only catch the chocolate porter for a limited time, from mid-October to mid-February around Valentines Day. The beer will only be available on draft only at bars and restaurants in Pennsylvania, as well as other states like, New Jersey, Delaware, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana and Kentucky.
So what can you expect from this glorious collaboration? The beer has a 4.7% ABV and pairs well with barbecued meats, cheese, and chocolate. In the process of making the beer, Hersheys used both cocoa powder and chocolate nibs to try and get the perfect chocolate flavor.
Will you try it?
