Yuengling Pricing

by Gary Z » Tue Mar 06, 2018 1:03 am

So it’s finally here and now I’m questioning what people are charging for it. Mostly it seems to be priced as a premium, not a domestic. World of Beers is charging $5 for a pint. That seems outrageous to me. I like Yuengling but I’m not a beer snob and let’s be honest... it’s barely a step up from Coors Light. Just because it’s new to KY doesn’t mean there should price gouging.

So I’m interested to know what prices others are running into.

On premise will be varied across the board. World of beer is not looking for a “happy hour” crowd so everything will be $5 or higher.

Off premise pricing will be similar to Michelob ultra. A few dollars more for a case than bud/Miller.

From Forward Kentucky...

"Excited about Yuengling beer coming to Kentucky? Well, if you support unions, care about the environment, and can’t believe anyone would vote for Donald Trump, you may want to re-think your excitement.

The problem isn’t the beer itself, which has built a strong following. The problem is the ongoing actions of its leadership, which is one family: the Yuenglings.

Dick Yuengling, the billionaire owner of the brewery, has been anti-union for decades, beginning with his own company. In 2006, he gathered his workers and told them to “read between the lines” as he started pushing for so-called “right to work” laws for Pennsylvania, the home of the brewery.

He followed this up by petitioning for a decertification vote of the union representing his workers when the contract with the workers (negotiated by that union) came up for renewal. Yuengling told his workers that if they didn’t vote to decertify the union, he would close the plant and move it to another state. Even though such coercion is illegal, he got away with it, and the union was forced out.

From 2008 to 2015, the brewery discharged the wastewater from its brewing processes into the city’s wastewater treatment facilities without pretreating it. The company was warned that this posed a threat to the Schuylkill River, which supplies the drinking water for 1.5 million people, but continued the practice.

After being cited by the EPA for 141 separate violations, the company agreed to a $1.8 million fine and built its own wastewater treatment facility for $7 million.
Not paying taxes

In 2013, the city of Philadelphia cited Yuengling Brewery for $6.6 million in back taxes. When Yuengling refused to pay, the city filed suit. Yuengling commented at the time that he thought the city was “coming after him” because of the city’s bad spending practices.
Endorsing Trump

In October, Dick Yuengling gave Eric Trump a tour of the Yuengling plant, and told the son of the candidate, “Our guys are behind your father. We need him in there.”

The verbal endorsement was widely reported, and led to a boycott of the beer by some anti-Trump beer drinkers.
Now in Kentucky

As Yuengling Beer adds Kentucky to its distribution mix, beer drinkers across the state will have to decide if they want their beer money to support these practices. Many union members have already stated that they will continue to boycott Yuengling beer, even as it becomes available near them. Will others join them?"

I'm not buying. My decision was not made because of price or politics. It was because the beer, while not terrible, is just totally average....and I try to avoid average beers.

The hubby and I were snowed in at a friend's house in Ashland, PA many years ago. Said friend assured us that all was well since he had stocked up before the storm and had plenty of food & beer on hand. It was our first (and last) Yeungling experience. Suffice it to say...it was a very long weekend :wink:

This Yuengling thing reminds me of back in the 70's when Coor's was only available in like 6 states all West of Colorado. I was driving home to WV and my last stop was at the PX on base. 4 cases of Coors beer in my trunk.

I was almost to IL before I had to pay for a tank of gas. I would pull in and tell the attendant fill it up. Then I would open the trunk and show him the case of beer. Big Eyed they all said, oh yeah your gas is covered. :)

It wasn't that Coors was good, but that you could not get it that made it desirable and worth lots.

I'm not getting it either (too many issues raised + so many excellent local/area brews available), but... Kroger has 12 pack bottles for $11.50 or so.
