Hershey’s, Yuengling Cheers to Chocolate Beer

The beer will now be available in bottle form.

D.G. Yuengling & Son has announced the return of its beer collaboration with Hershey's. 

In response to consumers' demand, Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter will be available in bottles and draft throughout Yuengling's entire 22-state footprint beginning late-September 2020.

Originally released in draft only in 2019 in 14 states throughout Yuengling's footprint, Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter marked the first-ever beer collaboration for the two Pennsylvania brands. Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter makes its return just in time for fans to enjoy in a bottle for the first time.

"Last year we were overwhelmed by the excitement and passion expressed by our fans for our first-ever collaboration beer," says Jennifer Yuengling, vice president, operations and sixth generation brewer, D.G. Yuengling & Son. "We heard our fans and saw consumers, near and far, scrambling to get their hands on a taste of Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter. So, in keeping with our 191-year tradition of listening to our loyal fans, we decided to release our Chocolate Porter across our entire footprint and in bottles for even more consumers 21+ to enjoy."

The special-edition, seasonal beer uses Yuengling's unparalleled brewing expertise to blend Hershey’s chocolate flavor with caramel and dark roasted malts.

"We're happy to work with Yuengling to expand the availability of the chocolate porter and better yet the Yuengling Hershey's chocolate porter is available in bottles for the first time,” says Ernie Savo, senior director, global licensing, The Hershey Company. “Now our fans will be able to enjoy this one-of-a-kind beer collaboration in the comfort of their homes.”

Starting in late September, Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter will be available in bottles and on draft throughout Yuengling's 22-state footprint, while supplies last.
