Back to Business has finally caught up to the trendsetting Major Dad fiefdom.

ALBANY, N.Y. – A line of taps pouring elegant brews from Bass to Blue Moon beckon twentysomethings packed into Bomber’s bar. But 21-year-old Elliot Cunniff orders something homier for himself and a friend.
“Two Yuenglings,” he tells the bartender, explaining the attraction after a sip from his pint glass.
“Price. Color. Flavor,” he says. “And the name alone, ‘ying-ling,'”

We’ve been quaffing copious swills of this particular bottle of ambrosia for years now. The country’s oldest brewery (1829), great story and yummyyummyyumyum! (Anheuser-Busch is being a bit disingenuous in their current ad campaigns.) One more painless reason to buy American.

    “ying ling”? Sounds kinda pinko…

  2. We had a ditsy barmaid here who could only manage ‘ling-ling’ (yes, like the panda…) and it’s been called that ever since.

    Ning-Nings used to be very cheap, too, which certainly added to their allure as far as I was concerned.
