It may be the middle of winter but an icy treat of the past is making a comeback.
The first batch of Yuengling ice cream was made and packed today at a plant in Schulykill County– on the anniversary of passage of the 18th amendment that started prohibition.
The brewery started producing ice cream in the 1920s to keep business thriving during Prohibition.
Now, almost 30 years after Yuengling stopped making the frozen treat, the company is bringing it back.
The hope is to have 10 flavors.. in hundreds of stores along the East Coast by next month.
Flavors will range from the traditional, like vanilla and chocolate, to specialty items like black and tan– created for Yuengling’s famous Black and Tan Dark Brewed Porter.
