All Set to Go – YAH Brew Announces Grand Opening

Its time to go, all things are set. After about a month of having their soft opening, its time for YAH Brew to have their grand opening. We (Amy, Scarlet, and I) were there yesterday, and I got to talk to Justin a little (see Amy’s article here: Ready To Kick Off The Summer) and he told me that they were just about to announce their grand opening – and here it is.

YAH Brew Ready to Kick off the Summer

Coming in hot like the 90s, YAH Brew is going to be kicking off the summer with their grand opening starting this week – kicking off on Tuesday with 90s themed trivia. The biggest day of their grand opening will be Saturday – May 27th (2023). Coinciding with blink-182’s concert at Hershey Park Stadium they are calling it “Dammit Day” and the summer season will be in full swing!

And yes, we are pretty sure we know where your newest concert pre – game location is going to be. (Hint its real close to Duck Donuts.)

This week will officially launch our grand opening. What does that entail?

The Taproom is now open every Tuesday from 5-10. DJ Hollywood will be hosting trivia with 90s themed rounds with a start time of 630. Seating is FCFS, no reservations

– Expanded seasonal hours; We will be open Wed-Sat at noon each day with food & bev. Open until 10p daily

– Saturday, May 27th will be known as “Dammit Day” at YAH Brew as we celebrate blink-182 rocking the Hersheypark Stadium behind our taproom. We brewed up a very limited IPA for this occasion aptly named “Dammit”. This 6.9% Hazy IPA is hopped with 182oz per barrel of pungent Motueka for big lemon-lime citrus notes and a soft pillowy melon finish.

Grand Opening – Be There or Be Square

Get all of your 90s jargon ready now, because its time for YAH Brew’s Grand Opening. This is a 90s themed micro brewery in downtown Hershey. (The former Tattered Flag Bar location near Duck Donuts on Governor Road / Rt 422.)

The following comes from our YAH Brew Opening Announcement article:

Justin Hoak and his wife Aimee Hoak started YAH Brew in May of 2022, getting production and legal rights and licensing as per the state. They have been touring brewfests ever since, brewfests cush as the Drink the Cookie Table brewfests in Pittsburgh (both last year’s and this year’s), as well as the Prototype Invitation Brewfest, Best Brunch Ever, the Hummelstown Winter Fling, and many others. They have done collaborations with lots of top notch breweries including Fourscore Beer Co.

Justin has previously worked as head brewer for Tattered Flag as well as helping out at Spring House Brewing and JoBoy’s Brewing. He is a good friend living just a few blocks away, and I know him and Aimee are throwing their all into the brewery. They have been working tirelessly on getting this up and running. Their beers are definitely not to be missed out on. If you’ve had some of the hazy IPAs, fruited sours, and seltzers from Tattered Flag in the past few years, as well as from YAH Brewing exactly, you’ll know what I mean.

The brewery is female owned, one of only a handful in Pennsylvania.

This is big news for Justin and Aimee, and so happy for them getting to open this brewery. They have poured a lot of hard work into this (they were just at the Haze it Forward brewfest at Imprint Beer Co, Hatboro, on Saturday. They have been hard at work, and hitting the rounds getting this brewery up; despite several hurdles, including local township – Hummelstown.

(This Wednesday at the Town Hall meeting, they will hear Justin’s appeal to be able to continue producing the beer for YAH Brew at his location in Hummelstown.)
