Black and Tan4.6%
Lord Chesterfield Ale5.4%
Golden Pilsner4.7%
Raging Eagle6.0%
Hershey's Chocolate Porter4.7%

As you can see, Yuengling alcohol content ranges from 3.8% for a serving of Yuengling Light Lager all the way up to 6.0% for 12 oz of Raging Eagle mango beer . Right in the middle is Yuengling Traditional Lager with a 4.5% alcohol content. Consequently, Yuengling alcohol percentages can be found on Yuengling's website in their Our Beer section.

Yuengling Lager ABV

Yuengling's flagship beer, Yuengling Traditional Lager, has an ABV of 4.5%. Yuengling Lager is right on par with what the National Institute of Health says a standard beer contains—5% alcohol content per serving.

When talking about Yuengling Traditional Lager, it's worth mentioning that Yuengling reintroduced its Traditional Lager in 1978 after not brewing it for decades. Today, Yuengling Traditional Lager accounts for right around 80% of sales.

Yuengling Light ABV

Yuengling's low-calorie version of its Traditional Lager, Yuengling Light, probably has an ABV of 3.8%. As you can see on their website, the brewery doesn't advertise this low ABV. Most sources cite Yuengling Light alcohol content to be 3.8%.

Did you know that it's not required by law to advertise a beer's alcohol content on the label? My guess is that Yuengling doesn't want its consumers to know how low Yuengling Light alcohol content is. Otherwise, they might choose a stronger light beer like Bud Light or Miller Light, both of which have an ABV of 4.2%.

Yuengling did not respond to my request for the actual alcohol content of Yuengling Light.

Yuengling Black and Tan ABV

Perhaps Yuengling's most unique beer, Black and Tan, has an ABV of 4.6%.

Black and Tan is a mixture of 60% Porter and 40% Premium. The ABV of Yuengling Porter is 4.7% while Yuengling Premium is 4.5%.  Just for the fun of it, let's check the math here to see if things add up.

And there you have it—a combination of 60% Yuengling Porter and 40% Yuengling Premium yields an alcohol content of 4.6%. Right on point.

What Yuengling Beer Has the Most Alcohol?

The Yuengling beer with the highest alcohol content is Raging Eagle with an ABV of 6.0%.

Coming in at 172 calories per serving, the Raging Eagle mango beer is the only Yuengling beer with an alcohol content above 5.5%.
