POTTSVILLE (AP) — Consumers picking up a case of Yuengling lager might want to grab a carton of Yuengling chocolate chip while they’re out.

The name linked to America’s oldest brewery is once again lending itself to ice cream.

The Republican-Herald of Pottsville reported that David Yuengling is resurrecting Yuengling’s Ice Cream, an ice cream maker started by his great-grandfather in 1920 to help supplement the brewery’s revenue during Prohibition.

The new company is unaffiliated with the Pottsville-based brewery. David Yuengling is a second cousin of brewery owner Dick Yuengling.

David Yuengling said the ice cream will be sold in grocery stores in Pennsylvania and other mid-Atlantic states starting in March.
