America’s oldest brewery and America’s most iconic chocolate brand have worked together to create the best-tasting chocolate porter ever. The Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter Beer is as delicious as it sounds. It combines the nearly 200-year old dark brewed porter recipe and the Hershey’s chocolate recipe. This is actually the first time that Yuengling and Hershey’s have teamed up on a project. Furthermore, this is the first time that Hershey’s puts its stamp on a beer. This alone makes the new chocolate porter the more intriguing.
The Yuengling brewing team took nearly a year to develop the chocolate beer. This limited edition beer contains 4.7% ABV. The new blend features Yuengling’s signature caramel and dark roasted malt brewed porter with notes of Hershey’s world-famous smooth rich chocolate. Indeed, this collaboration offers the world a rare chance to savor the exceptional blend of America’s unique beer and America’s most beloved chocolate. This shouldn’t come as a surprise because America really loves beer and chocolate.
“We wanted to create a fun, one-of-a-kind experience, and this product is a collaboration of each company’s iconic recipes. For us, our dark brewed porter, known for its caramel and dark roasted malts, was the perfect match for Hershey’s iconic chocolate,” says Sheryl Yuengling, sixth-generation of the Yuengling family and order services at D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc.
What Food Does Hershey’s Chocolate Porter Beer Pair Well With?
The sweet, full-bodied flavor of the beer pairs great with meaty dishes such as braised beef, smoked brisket sandwiches, short ribs, and all types of barbecue. Also, it perfectly pairs with creamy, salty cheeses such as cheddar, Dubliner, Gruyere, or Stilton. For those with a sweet tooth, they’ll be glad to know that this brew also goes well with sweet pastries. It brings a smooth finish to any dessert including cheesecakes, gingerbreads, and chocolate cakes.
