    I had some last week traveling though DC -- a big step up from the adjunct brews and not as "craft-y" (i.e. hoppy) as Sam's.

    Not sure what the closest regional equivalent would be in CA. When I lived there some 20 years ago, probably Henry Weinhard's, but I recall it being only a minor step up from the Buds of the era.
    Weinhards brings back memories of drinking beer with my grandpa when I was a little kid and then buying it by the case in college as an alternative to Bud/Miller/Coors and whatever swill was in the keg. I pick up a six pack every couple years to reminisce.

    Good to hear there's Yuengling in DC. I'll be out their in April.

    Re: A New Domestic Beer Leader - Yuengling

    While I don't see much to the novelty of yuengling lager or light lager, I love the black and tan and cheers to Yuengling for pricing it the same as the lager. I bought some Yuengling Bock the other day and like it too. It is seasonal and back on the market after a 40 year absence according to their website. One of these days, when time permits, I am going to Sharon, Pa. to fetch the other 3 versions of Yuengling that aren't available here yet. I don't mind trying their products, they are doing the right thing!

    At the local grocery store last night, the pricing for the same packages sizes was as follows:

    Sam Adams Boston Lager 6-pack $9.49
    Sam Adams Boston Lager 12-pack $16.89

    Yuengling Original Amber Lager 6-pack bottles $5.99
    Yuengling Original Amber Lager 12-pack bottles $9.99

    Given how competitive the beer industry is, I suspect this is more likely to be representative of the price differential between the two products in most retail chains.
    I'm pretty sure I have everyone beat, Utah DABC charges $1.85/bottle of any Sam Adams, so I'm looking at $11.10/6pk or $22.20/12pk. I only buy a single bottle of the seasonals that are exceptionally good.

    As far as Yuengling, I was initially very under-whelmed on first taste after hearing so much about it and how people travel to other states just to get it. Then it grew on me and I have to call it one of the the best values on the market today. Too bad I moved out of Ohio just before regular distribution expanded there!

    I used to drink Yuengling Lager quite a bit until about 5 years ago. I started getting bad batches quite often from numerous retailers. After having this happen a few dozen times, now all I buy is their Lord Chesterfield, which has always been my favorite of the Yuengling line-up.
