The East Coast fan favorite recently partnered with Molson Coors to bring their delicious nectar of the gods nationwide. Prior to the partnership, which was announced last fall, Yuengling (the oldest brewery in America) was only available in 22 states.
Texas wasn’t one of them…
But this August, it will be.
According to Eater, Yuengling has officially opened up its production facility in Ft. Worth, Texas, meaning we’re only a few months away from sippin’ on an ice cold Yuengling in the Lone Star State.
The brew is slated to hit grocery and liquor store shelves on August 23rd, marking Texas as the first state to kick of the nationwide expansion.
For the Pennsylvania-based brewery (and also the country’s oldest brewery) taking this thing to the next level 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.”
So good luck ordering one this summer… and by the way, I still have no idea 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.
