Although, I still don’t know how to pronounce it. Is it Young-ling? Yin-ling? Yeng-ling? I have no idea… I always feel like a dickhead trying to order it, but damn it tastes good.
The only downfall is that it’s only available in less than half of the country (not Illinois), with all of its distribution in the Eastern part of the United States.
The Pennsylvania-based brewery (and also the country’s oldest brewery) is officially partnering with Molson Coors to expand the distribution nationwide. And according to said Gavin Hattersley, president and chief executive officer at Molson Coors, the partnership was a no-brainer.
“Yuengling’s iconic beers are beloved by those who live in a state fortunate enough to have their brands and desired by those who are visiting. And just as was the case with a certain brand out of Golden, Colo., more than a few people have smuggled Yuengling across state lines in the trunk of their car. But soon, millions of fans won’t have to resort to such tactics. Our new partnership is a huge growth opportunity for Yuengling.
It’s a huge growth opportunity for Molson Coors. And at the end of the day, we’re going to make a whole lot of Yuengling fans out west really happy.”
Some of the best beer in the country is already made out west, and now, you’re going to be able to add Yuengling to the list.
