We had so much fun drinking a lot of beer last August that we decided to do it again.
Uncle Barry’s is proud to present the second installment of the 31 Beers of August. Same deal as last year — drink 31 different beers (bottle or draft) between August 1 and August 31 and win an Uncle Barry’s tee-shirt, a trophy and best of all, your photograph on the wall at the bar so that future patrons can admire what an excellent quantity and variety of beer you drank in August of 2014.
During the unseemly Prohibition Era of United States history in which radical special interests exerted their will over the rest of the country and alcohol became contraband, Pennsylvania’s famed Yuengling Brewery kept the money flowing by making ice cream. After prohibition ended in 1933, Yuengling Dairy became an institution in its own right, making and distributing ice cream for decades before closing up shop in 1985.
Now, with radicals once again running amok in national politics and Yuengling Ice Cream back on the shelves, Uncle Barry’s is making beer floats. $8 gets you a scoop of vanilla or espresso-chocolate chip Yuengling ice cream floating in a pint glass of Yuengling or Guinness. We’ll have these bad boys available throughout the summer while supplies last.

Rosee d’ Hibiscus, a spiced ale brewed with hibiscus flower from Canada’s Brasserie Dieu du Ciel, headlines Uncle Barry’s collection of new bottles this spring. Other imported offerings include Hacker-Pschorr’s hefeweizan, an unfiltered lager from fellow German brewery Bayreuther and Timmerman’s Framboise Lambicus, called a ‘true lambic’ by UB’s resident beermeister, Matt Volner. American breweries are represented with Brontide, a black ale from Baltimore’s Stillwater Brewery, and Green Flash’s Belgian Coast IPA. As always, our offerings change with some frequency so keep an eye on our beer page as well as our listing on Beermenus.com to stay on top of the action.
