Yuengling's Ice Cream has begun making ice cream again The first batches of Yuengling's ice cream are coming off the production line and will soon hit gocery store freezer cases.
The company first made ice cream in 1920, but hasn't made it for the past 28 years.
"It's a very exciting time for us," David Yuengling, president, said in a news release.
"We originally expected production to begin in March, but when we
announced in September that we were bringing back Yuengling's Ice
Cream, the response was so enthusiastic that we pushed up production."
Leiby's Dairy in Tamaqua will be producing the ice cream. The initial
run will consist of 100,000 quarts, in 10 flavors. The ice cream is
expected to be available in grocery stores by mid-February. So far, it won't be sold in Ohio, but, just like the beer, it probably will make it here eventually.
You'll find it in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and
The premium ice cream will cost between $5.49 and $5.99 per quart, and will be available in 10 flavors: Vanilla, Espresso Chocolate Chip, Chocolate, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Marshmallow, Root Beer Float, Mint Chocolate Chip, Vanilla Fudge Chunk with Pretzels, and Black and Tan, which is chocolate and caramel ice creams (of course).
Yuengling's Ice Cream, based in northeastern Pennsylvania, is a family-owned
business dating back to 1920. While the family name is one and the
same, Yuengling's Ice Cream is unaffiliated with the Yuengling brewery, according to the news release.
