Pennsylvania Beer: Yuengling Lager

While I don't recall ever seeing this beer sold in Boston, you can get it just about anywhere in Pittsburgh. Brewed in Pottsville, PA the brewery touts itself as the oldest continuously operating brewery in the United States. At about $12-$14 for a 12-pack it's also relatively cheap. The fact that it can even be found in a 12-pack is a rarity in PA given the state's bizarre beer laws. The beer itself pours a nice amber color, has a good malt taste and is heavily carbonated (maybe a little too much carbonation for my liking). Overall, it's a pretty standard lager, but definately a significant step up from the mass-produced Buds and Millers of the world. If you find yourself in PA, this beer is worth a try--every bar I've been to has it on tap. Given its price, wide availability, and tastiness, it's definately something I'll be going back to while I'm out here.
