Hershey and Yuengling are partnering on Hershey's Chocolate Porter.

Not since H.B. Reese combined chocolate and peanut butter has there been such a simple yet obvious collaboration between ingredients in central Pennsylvania.

Pennlive.com is reporting, D.G. Yuengling and Sons, the nation’s largest independent brewing company and America’s oldest brewery, has announced a collaboration with The Hershey Co., one of the world’s largest chocolate manufacturers.

The two companies will be releasing a limited run of a new brew, Hershey’s Chocolate Porter.

Yuengling teased the announcement on their Facebook page on Sept. 30, saying, “BIG news on tap for tomorrow. Can you guess what our new brew is?”
