What is Yuengling’s Ice Cream and Why Everyone is Excited It’s Back

yuenglings-ice-cream

Established in 1829, D.G. Yuengling & Son is the oldest brewing company still operating in the United States. During the prohibition, many brewers were forced to turn to other markets in order to stay in business. Looking to take on the ice cream industry, Yuengling’s survived by selling “near beers” with a 0.5% alcohol content, opening dance halls in Philadelphia and New York City, and (most deliciously) creating ice cream.

After the 18th Amendment was repealed in 1933, the beloved ice cream was later discontinued in 1985. Now, nearly three decades later, Yuengling’s ice cream is set to hit shelves in a few short weeks. The flavors will include Black &  Tan (sadly sans buzz), chocolate fudge, and root beer float, among several others. At the moment, the new frozen treats will be available in select locations on the East Coast.

Nothing like sticking it to the man with a pint full of creamy ice cream.

This Glass Lets You Drink Two Different Beers at the Same Damn Time

In a move part Escher, part why-didn’t-we-think-of-that, comes the Dual Beer Glass. Crafted by Matthew Cummings of The Pretentious Beer Glass Company (gotta love the honesty), the cylindrical beer glass houses two separate chambers that meet at the lip. This clever design allows amateur bartenders to pour the perfect Half and Half, eliminating the need for a bar spoon to prevent the two beers from blending.

This opens up a whole avenue of possible brew combinations, even with those of similar viscosity. The design also allows you to simultaneously smell both beers, rather than just the predominating aroma that settles on top. Each glass measure approximately 5-6″ tall and 3″ wide, holding a total of 10-12 oz.

As an ex-bartender whose mussed up my fair share of Black and Tans and (shudder) Cotton Candies, aka raspberry cider and hefeweizen, this utilitarian glassware  has definitely got my interest piqued.
