I have a quality concern, who do I contact?

Someone will respond to you in a timely manner:

How do I read the production code on my beer?

All of D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. products are best consumed within 120 days of packaging. The production code can be determined by 1 of 2 ways on all bottles and cans:

(1) An 11-digit number is located on the bottom of the can and on the neck of the bottle on a single line. The first 2 digits are the year in which it was produced. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th digit are the day of the year in the Julian Calendar (For example, beer packaged on February 1st would be stamped with 032 because that’s the 32nd day of the year.) The 6th digit is the producing brewery (#1 is our Pottsville brewery, #2 is our Tampa brewery, #3 is our Mill Creek brewery). The 7th digit is the production line number, and the last 4 digits show the military time it was produced.

(2) The production code is displayed using two lines. Line 1 begins with the first 3 letters of the month in which it was produced. The next 4 digits are the day and year of production. The final number is the week on a calendar year the package was produced (for example, 29 would follow November 16, 2020, as it is the 29th week in a year). Line 2 starts with a letter A through E, which corresponds with the production day of the week (for example, C=Wednesday). The next 4 digits indicate the producing brewery, while the next 2 digits note the production line. The final 6 digits mark the time stamp of the product (hour, minute, second).

Where can I find my favorite Yuengling beer?

Try using the Beer Finder. You can search by your favorite brand, type of location, zip code, and radius to the closest Yuengling.

Where do you distribute?

Currently, our distribution is limited by the production capacity and location of our three breweries which service our current distributors throughout our footprint. We would like to add more states in the future as we grow the company, but currently, there is not a specific timeline in place for expansion. To find our beer closest to you, please check out Our Beer Finder.

What is your brewing process?

Check out our brewing process below or come visit America’s Oldest Brewery in Pottsville, PA to learn more about it from one of our trained tour guides.

Why did Yuengling come out with a fruit-flavored beer?

Consumers are craving more flavor and we saw an opportunity to leverage our six generations of brewing expertise to create a bold mango beer that appeals to adventurous drinkers and adds a new edge to our portfolio of iconic beers. This contemporary addition to Yuengling’s portfolio is the ideal beverage for legal drinking-age adults who are looking for bold, invigorating flavor in their next beer adventure.  Bongo Fizz feeds into the passion and energy of the 21-35-year-old young adult who is often surrounded by friends and itching to embark on new adventures.

Can Yuengling distribute to military bases around the world?

The AAFES purchases Yuengling products direct from the brewery and distributes it to bases overseas. AAFES handles all of the logistics but the brewery does not know which bases receive our beer. Additionally, due to state laws, the AAFES is not permitted to send beer to US Bases that are outside of our current distribution area.

Why is my state listed on the deposit bottle labels/ can tops when Yuengling is not sold in my state?

The deposit labels and can lids list all states that require deposit information. These packages are only redeemable for a deposit refund in the state in which it was purchased. Retailers in states where Yuengling is not distributed will not honor the refund because a deposit was never paid to their state on that package when the product was purchased.

Are seasonal brands available everywhere?

Our seasonal brand distribution varies by region. If you cannot find search results on the beer finder, please reach out to your nearest distributor to inquire about the schedule.

Are Yuengling beers pasteurized?

All packaged beer (cans & bottles) are pasteurized and all kegs are unpasteurized.

Do Yuengling beers contain GMO ingredients?

Like many beers, our products may contain ingredients from GMO strains.

Are Yuengling beers vegan?


How many breweries does Yuengling have?

All Yuengling products are produced at three company-owned breweries. There are two in Pottsville PA and one in Tampa FL. Fans are invited to visit our Historic Pottsville Brewery for a tour. Our Tampa campus will be open in 2022.

I want to carry Yuengling in my bar/restaurant/liquor store, who should I contact?

Currently, our distribution is limited by the capacity and location of our breweries which service AL, AR, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IN, KY, LA, MA, MD, MS, NJ, NY, NC, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WV. If your establishment is located in one of the states, you can reach out to your local distributor for ordering.

Do you have gluten-free, Kosher or other restricted diet beers?

Our portfolio of family beers includes Light and Light Lager 99 which are both under 100 calories, however the family of beers are not gluten-free or Kosher beers.

Where can I order Yuengling beer online?

Learn how you can find and buy Yuengling on our the Beer Finder page.

What is the ABV for Yuengling’s portfolio of beer?

You can find the stats for our beers, including ABV on their respective beer pages.

Can I order Yuengling beer directly from you?

Is Yuengling family-owned?

D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. is owned and operated by Richard (Dick) Yuengling, Jr. This fifth generation owner is in the Pottsville facilities daily.

Dick’s daughters and sixth generation, Wendy Yuengling, Jennifer Yuengling, Debbie Yuengling Ferhat, and Sheryl Yuengling are all members of the Yuengling staff. Wendy and Debbie work in administration and Jennifer and Sheryl are in production and shipping.
