I drink Yuengling because it's the only major beer made in America owned by an American family other than craft beers which I like as well.

It's all a matter of taste.  I was never a beer drinker and then several years ago someone introduced me to Sam Adams.  I had no idea a beer could be that good.  I grew up with Shafer, Rhiengold, Ballentine, and some horrible stuff called Knickerbocker  As far as I'm concerned, compared to Sam Adams, they shouldn't have even been classified as beer.. The market will purge out the lesser appealing dishwater just as it did in the past.  People's tasts have matured over the years and the lesser beers will disappear.  I will always buy American but I have strayed occassionaly to a very fine beer called Spaten.

Is it the alcohol or is it just morons that can post with out knowing how to come up with and adjective that isn't a four letter word.  Or could it be that you only use profanity when your drink. I have great idea "don't post and drink"  You know you can start home brewing your own beer, see what it takes to make a beer that you will enoy and you never know you may learn increase your IQ and find there are more than just four letter word.

I think it's been brewed sinince 1896, instead of 1986.  I know for sure that I drank it pre-1986.
