Yuengling also added strawberry to their ice cream lineup, but that bit of news was buried DEEP under the crushing weight of the Butterbeer announcement.
From the press release:
Once described by J.K. Rowling “a little bit like less sickly butterscotch,” the Yuengling’s Ice Cream take on the flavor will be made from half buttercream ice cream, half butterscotch ice cream, and twisted with a butterscotch swirl. The result is magical decadence that will transport you to another place and time.
“We are always looking for ways to inspire our fans and spark creativity. Whether it’s our flavor names and descriptions or the recipes themselves—we’re in the business of having fun,” said David Yuengling, President of Yuengling’s Ice Cream. “We hope we made J.K. Rowling proud with this flavor.”

Apparently, the two new flavors are currently available in pints, with quarts being made available sometime in the coming months. Unfortunately, I think it’s highly unlikely that the beer-focused side of Yuengling will deliver a Butterbeer-flavored adult beverage anytime soon.
