The Advantages of Travel

One of the many advantages of traveling is the opportunity to try new and different experiences, in this case beer. Yeungling is one of the few breweries to survive the consolidation in the middle of the last century. Not available in Illinois, and only recently in Ohio, they produce a number of Lagers and this Black and Tan mix. Nothing super fancy but not a bad beer.

This beer was very hop heavy but tasty. The first taste was pretty strong and held throughout. A tiny bit of pine on the nose does give it at least a partial reason to be a XMas beer, but it is a bit of a stretch. Still enjoyable and not bad after a busy weekend.
