Yuengling ice cream makes a comeback, adds beer float flavor

We don't usually associate Yuengling with ice cream. Yet many years ago, Yuengling ice cream was extremely popular, especially in Pennsylvania.

Yuengling Dairy Products was founded by Frank Yuengling in 1920 to keep the family brewery afloat during the "Prohibition." Unfortunately, Frank had to close the business in 1985 because neither of his sons was interested in taking over.

Now, after 30 years, the ice cream is back. Frank Yuengling's son, David, has decided to resurrect the family's old ice cream business.

“I spent 30 years in the computer industry, and I was at a point in my life where I wanted to do something different, kind of like a mid-life crisis,” he told Inc. last year.

David asked permission from his cousin, brewery owner Dick Yuengling, and got a yes. They both agreed to run the ice cream business separately from the legendary brewery.

"One of the biggest things in putting a new product on the market is getting brand-name recognition, which is a problem we don't have. We are really popular for not having been on the market for 30 years," David told the Associated Press.

Yuengling's Ice Cream, which is now available in stores, is made from local milk and cream that has no "added hormones."

Currently, there are 10 flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Marshmallow, Black and Tan, Espresso Chocolate Chip, Vanilla Fudge Chunk with Pretzels, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, and even a Root Beer Float flavor.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
