PITTSBURGH —

Yuengling ice cream hit store shelves Monday.

It’s being sold in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and four other states.

“We started making ice cream in 1920 and made it all the way up until 1985,” said President David Yuengling.

The ice cream company, based in Orwigsburg, isn't affiliated with the well-known Pottsville brewery that carries the same name, but it's owned by a branch of the same family.

Flavors include espresso chocolate chip, black and tan (chocolate and caramel ice cream), vanilla fudge chunk with pretzels and root beer float.
