I'm pretty sure the orginal brewery was in Wilkes- Barre , Pa. I still see it when I visit my relatives there .

I expect German import Spaten is sold in Ohio, as I think their distribution is all over the US. I love their Optimator which is a double bock.

I am such a dunce in the beer department that when we moved back to PA in the early 90's, I was at a party and someone suggested a Yuengling to me as a possible tipple, and I replied "Oh, a Chinese beer...I'll try it!". You would have thought I had just emerged from a UFO by the reaction.
I live in NW PA.

This reminds me of taking my uncle - a missionary in The Philippines - out to lunch a couple of weeks ago. It was a Friday, and being deeply Catholic he didn't want to eat any meat. Took him to a local "seat yourself" local place. Their special? Yuengling-dipped batter fried fish sandwich.

He first thought it was prepared a la French, but then he thought about it and decided it was Chinese instead! I didn't have time to explain before he ordered, so I ended up telling him it was fish with batter dipped in Chinese beer!

He really liked the sandwich.

The local Martin's grocery store has a rack of singles and will let you pick out any 6, for the price of the most expensive one. I've tried a few that way, but now I've found I like Mich Amber Bock for a great price/taste combo so I stick with that or Killians. We have a couple of microbrews in our little country that are fun to go to or get a growler from (with a 3rd on the way) plus Starr Hill from Charlottesville is on tap at a lot of places. It's making its way further around the country now, since A-B is distributing it.

Khan, I wouldn't sweat the beer choice too much, most beer drinkers like to try new regional beers, like what Braumeister and others recommended.

As a former Cleveland area resident, I will pile on the Great Lakes train. Any of their beers would be great.

I would also suggest anything made by Three Floyds or Bell's.

I know this is the low-hanging fruit, but why not Guinness?

Since different folks like different types of ale and beer.... [Some like 'em strong, others like 'em mild] for example Stout ale versus a Pale Lager beer. I would suggest something of good quality but in the middle.

I like Dark Beer and stronger flavors... but IMO - can't go wrong with most higher quality [Pale] Plisners or Lagers. It is middle of the road on the flavor scale but a safe bet unless you know the person's exact preferences.

I dont know if they sell it in Ohio, but New Belgium 1554 Enlightened Black Ale is a tasty dark beer.

What a broad array of choices! I would throw up my hands in confusion and provide iced tea instead. I am sure Khan will do better than I would, though.

Iced Tea when he mentioned beer? Anyway, still plenty of choices that one has available:

Sweet or not sweet?

If sweet - cane sugar, beet sugar, syrup, turbano, Stevia, sugar substitute?

Lemon? Mint?

Bag, loose?

green tea? wu long black tea? white tea? chai? herbal tea? rooibos? Blackberry, Ginseng?

Cold steep, hot brewed?

Decaf?

Fair Trade?

Yes, selected and prepared as I wish. After all, it's my house, not a bar or restaurant. While I would go out of my way to accomodate allergies or food sensitivities, there is a limit when it comes to what I would regard as simply quirky tastes.

Now there's a thought - - I would probably choose to take him to a bar or restaurant for his beer, so that he could choose whatever he wanted.

Well of course you are free to do as you choose But then you'd have to find a bar/restaurant that carries a good selection of beers, and that can be sometimes be much tougher than finding that selection in a store, and certainly more $$.

But the OP didn't ask what you or I would do. She asked what would be a good beer to serve someone who mentioned "Yuengling" and "dark" when she inquired about their drink preferences. She got mostly good, helpful suggestions that can be satisfied in one quick trip to a local liquor store. It's not that confusing, really.

Kahn, you are a good host.

I'll put in a recommendation for Samuel Adams Black Lager. Nice caramel flavor for a lager.

*At the time of this post, Hankster owned no shares of (SAM)

My sister and brother-in-law visited for two weeks last month. They told me prior to their arrival (upon my inquiry) that they drank orange juice, diet caffeine free Pepsi, one percent milk and Sprite exclusively. When they got here, they guzzled all my Tanqueray gin, my Pimm's (mixed with the Sprite) and made great inroads into my wine (which I was told they never touched). I finally gave the unopened case of Pepsi to a friend yesterday as I am not a drinker of caffeine free soda.
I have some friends coming from Houston next month. He likes beer (I think I will get something from the Pennsylvania Brewing Co) and she and I will drink wine...probably will stock up on a selection of CA vintners.
