Just before graduation in '92, a bunch or us made a road trip to Penn State. Knowing that he could find Yuengling there, Chuck bought a case of 16 oz. Premiums and shared them with his friends. Once we all had a taste, we instantly fell in love. Soon we were all drinking Yuengling at a local Irish tavern on Route 22 named Jack O'Connors. Then Jack's made the unfortunate decision to drop Yuengling and go with some Czech Beer. So we took it upon ourselves to drive 45 minutes to Pennsylvania (every other Thursday) to obtain this rare commodity. At the time, a case of Yuengling Premium 16 oz. returnable bottles was only $9.50.
