Now Scott that's not true The only Yuengling Product That I like anymore is The lord Chesterfield Ale
but they stop making it in barrels You have to Remember where I grew up I lived 8 blocks from Yuengling I Probably drunk
More Yuengling Products Then anyone else on this forum When it was good beer we use to Have Bush Party's every Night
up on Sharp Mountain & out in Blackwood Over the Years I had a lot of friends who worked there on second & third shift
we use to go in threw the back door where the bottling room is and spend the shift drinking the fresh beer coming of the
line before it was pasteurized Talk about High octane & fresh beer the only problem it was warm at that time a 1/4
barrel of Yuengling was 5 bucks & 5 bucks on the barrel deposit a guart of beer was 25 to 35 cents so believe me I had my fill of Yuengling over the years I Just got older and smarter and don't like being :sick: From it for days on in When they took out the old copper Tanks & put in S.S. and stop using spring water that's when the taste change early / mid 80's so it you get a case of Chesterfield Ale I will be over :lol: I have lots of stories about drinking Yuengling but I will save them for another time take care all :)

Hey JC,

Do you remember "Old German"? It was from Yuengling, I used to buy it by the case. They don't make it any more. It was inexpensive, came in the short fat bottles, before longnecks became popular again. I still have one unopened bottle somewhere. I discovered Yuengling in the late 80's. I don't buy any other beer. I prefer Amber Lager and Black & Tan.

I thought "Old German" was from the Pittsburgh brewing company?

There was a beer by that name from Pittsburgh. This was from Yuengling. I haven't been able to find any info about it online. I have that last bottle, but it is in the attic, couold take me the better part of the night to find it!

I dug this up.

The Queen City Brewing Company opened in 1901 as The German Brewing Company. Cumberland at that time was of a huge German descent, and the market for a well brewed German beer was wanted for the city. The German Brewing Co. acquired an expeirienced brewmaster from Germany, and the brewery was under way.

At the outbreak of World War I, the directors thought the name would offend the American people, so the name and brand were changed to Queeno. At the end of the war, the names were changed back.

The German Brewing Company prospered until Prohibition. During this period, the brewery remained operational by making a near beer, selling ice, and making soft drinks. At the repeal of Prohibition, the brewery prospered again, only to be inundated by the St. Patricks Day Flood of 1936. After the cleanup, the brewery again prospered. Old German Brand Beer was again being brewed in the city.

At the start of World War II, as not to offend the American people, the brewery name and brand were changed again. This time to The Queen City Brewing Co, brewers of The Original Queen City Beer. At the end of the war, the brand name was changed back, but the Company name remained the same. The Queen City Brewing Co. prospered greatly during the 50's and 60's, brewing their flagship Old German, as well as Fischers Beer and Ale and Kings XX Ale.

In the 1950's, the brewery purchased The Cumberland Brewing Co, brewers of Old Export Brand Beer. Both breweries operated independently. Other brands brewed by Queen City in the 50's and 60,s included Goldcrest 51, a brew purchased after the closing of The Tennesee Brewing Co.

In April, 1969, the Directors decided to close The Cumberland Brewing Co and transfer the Old Export Brands to Queen City. The brewery continued to prosper during these years by brewing such brands as Gamecock Cream Ale, Gamecock Premium Beer, Tudor Beer and Ale(for A&P Market), Brown Derby(Safeway Brand), Old Dutch, Arrow, Heritage House, Richbrau, Queens Brau, American, and Old Export.

Labor disputes and lack of sales caused the Queen City Brewing Company to close its doors in December of 1974, thus transferring its Old German, Old Export, Heritage House, Old Dutch, Brown Derby, and American brands to the Pittsburgh Brewing Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Queen City brewery was demolished in April, 1975, ending a combined 152 years of brewing in Cumberland Maryland.

Found it.
This is a scan from my copy of "The Great American Beer Book" copyright 1978.
It shows Yuengling products at the time.
