Yuengling's Amber Lager is the workhorse of their lineup. Go just about anywhere in Pennsylvania and order a "lager", and you'll be handed a Yuengling Lager. But their Porter is really the under appreciated jewel of their offerings.

Finally, somebody at the company decided that it was time to tell the world about Porter. Are you porter-worthy?

Dark Brewed Yuengling Porter is a special tribute for those who have carried a heavy load, picked up extra work or gone out of their way to help.

That could be you, or someone you know. Each month, we'll select a different "Porter Worthy Person of the Month" based on the nominations you send us. Those selected will have their story told here on PorterWorthy.com and will win a limited edition Yuengling Porter hand-signed by Dick Yuengling.

A recent "porter-worthy" winner:

Now that all the major US breweries have been merged with or been bought out by foreign companies (Miller --> SABMiller, Coors --> MolsonCoors, Anheuser-Busch --> AB/Inbev), I'm pretty sure Boston Beer (aka Sam Adams) is the largest domestic brewer. And right after that, (I'm pretty sure) is Yuengling.  If they can ramp up Porter sales a little bit they'll overtake Sam Adams in no time despite being a regional brand.
