The first batches of Yuengling's Ice Cream are coming off the production line and heading to grocery stores. 

Lieby's Dairy in Tamaqua will produce the ice cream. The initial production will make 100,000 quarts in ten different flavors. 

"We originally expected production to begin in March," said David Yuengling, president. "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 ice cream first made it's appearance in 1920, and now it's coming back after being off the market for 28 years. 

Initially, the ice cream is expected to be sold at independent grocery stores in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. It's expected to be available by the middle of February. 

Quarts will cost between $5.49 and $5.99 and come in ten all-natural flavors:

* Vanilla
* Chocolate
* Chocolate Chip
* Espresso Chocolate Chip
* Chocolate Fudge Brownie 
* Chocolate Marshmallow
* Mint Chocolate Chip
* Black and Tan
* Vanilla Fudge Chunk with Pretzels
