Yuengling, Hershey’s worlds collide with chocolate-inspired porter

09/29/2020

Chocolate beer?

Oh yes, that is very much a thing now, thanks to Yuengling and Hershey’s joining forces.

Together, the two have created Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter, which was previously released in draft only during 2019, but now will be available in bottle form throughout Yuengling’s 22-state footprint.

“Last year we were overwhelmed by the excitement and passion expressed by our fans for our first-ever collaboration beer,” Jennifer Yuengling, vice president of operations and 6th generation brewer at D.G. Yuengling & Son, said.  “We heard our fans and saw consumers, near and far, scrambling to get their hands on a taste of Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter. So, in keeping with our 191-year tradition of listening to our loyal fans, we decided to release our Chocolate Porter across our entire footprint and in bottles for even more consumers 21+ to enjoy.”

Containing 4.7% ABV, Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter combines the beverage company’s Dark Brewed Porter recipe with the taste of Hershey’s chocolate, as well as caramel and dark roasted malts.

“We’re happy to work with Yuengling to expand the availability of the chocolate porter and, better yet the Yuengling Hershey’s chocolate porter is available in bottles for the first time.  Now our fans will be able to enjoy this one-of-a-kind beer collaboration in the comfort of their homes,” Ernie Savo, senior director global licensing at The Hershey Co., said.
