Yuengling Brewery appears set to announce a brand new beer soon.

The Canary caught a sign advertising Yuengling Flight during our morning vehicular constitutional.

“Easy drinking, clean, crisp, refreshing,” the sign reads.

We’ve reached out to America’s Oldest Brewery for more information but haven’t heard back.

New Yuengling Flight Beer

Here’s what we do know about Yuengling Flight. Or, this is what we can gather on the new product based on limited details already available. (First: Hints at Yuengling Flight hitting the market were first published by MyBeerBuzz late last year. That’s when they dug up labels submitted to the Federal Trade Commission, where breweries must get new product labels approved before taking them to market.

Flight will be a light beer. In fact, early looks at product labels for Yuengling Flight indicate they’re calling it the “Next Generation of Light Beer”.

How light?

A 12-ounce bottle of Yuengling Flight will have 2.6 grams of carbs, 95 calories, and is 4.2% alcohol-by-volume (ABV). By comparison, Yuengling Light Lager has 99 calories in a 12-ounce bottle. A can of Premium Light has 98 calories. We’ve never seen anyone drink a bottle of Premium Light.

Walmart already has a page dedicated for Yuengling Flight on its website when it becomes available for purchase in states where Walmarts sell beer.

Yuengling Flight appears to be a play off the Spread Your Wings ad campaign America’s Oldest Brewery launched back in 2018.

Another New Yuengling Beer

This is the second new beer released by Yuengling in as many years. In 2019, the brewery teamed up with Hershey’s Chocolate to produce a limited-run, draft-only Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter Beer.

The year before that, Yuengling introduced its Golden Pilsner beer, which it still markets.

New beers in the last 10 years or so which have been discontinued include Yuengling Bock (2009-2015), Summer Wheat (2014-2017), and Yuengling IPL (2015-2017).
