Any idea on the distributor?

See, this is just another reason why distribution itself, as a system, is flawed. Because of prohibition we have the wonderful world of distributors. I think it's a huge crime that small breweries (or in this case large breweries) can't just sell their beer to bars directly without having to go through a glorified middle man. It's because of Distributors that we also don't have 3 Floyds here yet, and why Chicago can't get some Bells products.

no.

imagine if you lived somewhere and you drank the cheap-shitty-hipster-beer-of-whatevertown, but you always heard about pbr.

now imagine "the man" tells you "well, you can't have pbr, cuz i say so." but you KNOW all the hipsters in town-two-states-over-from-whatevertown are drinking pbr, and nobody you hang out with does.

which means there's a cheapshittyhipsterbeer with even more cheapshittyhipster-cred than whatevertown brewery's ipa, or schiltz, or falstaff, or whatever the hipsters in whatevertown drink for 1.75 a pint.
even more "indie cred" because so few hipsters you know drink it, but the ones that do talk about it all the time.
and even more punk-rock-cred because "the man" telling you that you're not allowed to have it makes you want it all that much more,

and makes it that much more sweet when you finally get your hands on some.

but when you strip all that bullshit away, you're still drinking pbr.

same thing.

Bastard, I actually think - even though you're talking out your ass - you're pretty spot on. Drank Yuengling for the first time in South Carolina a few years ago, bought a case to bring home because I felt like I just couldn't live without it. Once it crossed over the Ohio border and I got past the neighbors saying "Wow, where did you get that?", it was just another amber-colored beer. It's decent enough but I've often said exactly what you said - once this becomes commonplace in Ohio, people aren't going to be nearly as excited about it.

That being said, I'll buy a case as soon as it hits Columbus :)

I sort of feel when it comes to flavor... Yuengling > PBR

With that said, Yuengling is a great beer and I'll drink it if I'm given the option... But when it's lined up against other beers in a bar, I rarely choose it.

Also, at least here in NYC, it's cheaper than a lot of other things so it flows at BBQs. never a bad thing...

But I do agreed with Bastard.. Once it's a thing in Columbus, the mystique around it will drop 90% in the first few months.

I love beer in all its forms, but i have never understood the hype about Yuengling, tastes about like Killians to me. Plus it makes me fart. I'll take PBR all day long over it. Not to be a hater or anything, im glad its going to be an option here.

Coors used to have the same "unobtainable" mystique (remember "Smokey& the Bandit?"), but it is hard to picture it seeming particularly exotic now.

I think the coolest thing about Yuengling is its long-standing independence, but yeah, otherwise, what Bastard and Duffy said, once it gets here I'll probably never buy it unless it's the cheap beer on hand.

Agreed. It's somewhere between Killians and Sam Adams Boston Lager. Just another amber lager. Not too bad, but no where near the hype.

In more unfortunate beer related news, the Ohio legislature has removed a provision from the budget that would have allowed Columbus Commons to sell alcohol, and eliminated a proposed increase for legal alcohol content of beer from 12 percent to 18 percent.

They removed that? I thought it passed already? So great, now we can't get Dogfish Head 120 minute... again. I really don't get it. If you can buy wine that high, what's the difference with beer?

If you can't tell the difference between PBR and Yuengling, your argument is invalid.

I stuck my dick in it. Felt just like any other amber lager to me.

There's no mystique for me b/c I grew up with it in PA. What always appealed to me about Yuengling was that it was just as cheap (or cheaper) as all the Bud Lights and Millers but tasted better. There are a lot of better beers out there, but for a cheap domestic, I still think it's hard to beat Yuengling. (Prefer it over PBR, too.)

And yeah, it's really old and independent. It's pretty much the only thing sustaining Pottsville, PA.

Eggs-actly! Remember the semi-big hypestorm when they reintroduced Blatz a few years ago? It was supposed to be like the old-school stuff. Problem was, they were charging 7-8 bucks for it. Ridiculous. Yuengling didn't have to go back to be old school, they've just been making it the same way they always have since the earth cooled. It's cheap, and it doesn't taste like they soak nails in it like PBR does when it gets above a freezing temperature.

Oh, and if you want something with a tad more flavor but is equally cheap, try Yuengling Porter or (even better) their Black and Tan.
