Yuengling Black and Tan


Regional Breweries Strive, Survive, and Thrive
Excerpt from the Ale Street News, April '96

The brewery also started a new stylistic niche. Local drinkers often mixed the Pottsville Porter with Yuengling’s lighter beers. When the brewery got a request from Reading’s Northeast Taproom for a premixed draft "half ‘n’ half," they happily complied. Other tavern owners asked for it, and it became the Black and Tan.
