TAMAQUA, Pa., Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Last month, we received the welcome news that the Yuengling family was bringing back its ice cream after a 30-year hiatus.

This week, the (non-beer-flavored) frozen treats hit shelves in stores around Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York and West Virginia.

"It's a very exciting time for us," said David Yuengling, president of Yuengling's Ice Cream, which is owned by a different branch of the Yuengling family than the brewery. "We originally expected production to begin in March, but when we announced in September that we were bringing back Yuengling's Ice Cream, the response was so enthusiastic that we pushed up production."

The Yuengling family began churning ice cream back in 1920, when beer production was outlawed by prohibition, and kept production going for 65 years, even after prohibition was repealed.

Now the brand is back, selling 10 flavors including chocolate marshmallow and "Black and Tan" (chocolate and caramel) along with classics such as vanilla and chocolate.

Pints are available for $4.99 to $5.99 in Acme, Weis and some independent groceries.
