Beer

I have a quality concern, who do I contact?

Please fill out our Quality Concern form and someone will respond to you in a timely manner.

What is your brewing process?

You can view our brewing process here

Where do you distribute?

Currently, our distribution is limited by 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.

Can I purchase beer direct from you?

We do sell beer in our Pottsville gift shop, but at this time the brewery is not permitted to ship beer direct to consumers.

How do I find Yuengling beer near me?

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

Is beer available for purchase at your Gift Shops?

Yes, the Pottsville Gift Shop sells beer.

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

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

How do I determine if my beer is still good?

Yuengling products are best within 120 days of being packaged. The production code is an 11 digit number located on the bottom of the can and on the neck of the bottle.

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 location where it was produced (#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. For the above example on the left, this beer was produced on 1/31/17 at our Tampa brewery.

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 three breweries which service AL, AR, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IN, KY, LA, MA, MD, MS, NJ, NY, NC, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, VA, and WV. If your establishment is located in one of the states, you can find a local distributor here.

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 come visit both our Historic Pottsville Brewery and our Tampa location, both are open for tours.

Are Yuengling Beers Vegan?

Yes.

Do Yuengling Beers contain GMO ingredients?

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

Are Yuengling Beers pasteurized?

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

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.

What is the Alcohol Content of Yuengling Products?

You can learn more about your favorite Yuengling product in Our Beer section.

Does Yuengling, or 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.

The Yuengling Company: Brewing Partnership with Molson Coors


What is The Yuengling Company?
Formed in September 2020, The Yuengling Company is a joint venture between D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery®, and the Molson Coors Beverage Company. Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, The Yuengling Company will manage market expansion west and lead all facets of the business in new territory beyond the 192-year-old brewer’s existing 22-state footprint plus any future D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc.’s New England expansion.  The Yuengling Company is a separate entity that will operate as an extension of D.G. Yuengling & Son., Inc.

Why was this partnership created?
There are millions of fans who regularly ask when they’ll be able to enjoy Yuengling’s great beers without having to hop on an airplane or smuggle them across state lines. Launching this long term brewing partnership will allow us to bring our portfolio of iconic American beer to even more consumers and markets west of our current East Coast distribution footprint. With Molson Coors’ world-class brewing facilities, we have the unique opportunity to expand Yuengling’s presence further west while still maintaining our reputation for quality, independence and family ownership, which we’ve built through six generations over 190 years.

Will Yuengling retain its independence after partnering with Molson Coors?
Yes.  This partnership has no impact on the ownership of D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. or the Yuengling portfolio of brands. Yuengling family ownership will not change, and the Yuengling family remains committed to operating the business and keeping it in the family for future generations. Launching this partnership will allow us to bring our portfolio of iconic American beers to even more consumers and markets outside of our current distribution footprint.  The new joint venture with Molson Coors will be governed by a six-member board of directors evenly split between Yuengling and Molson Coors family members and executives. Yuengling will hold the Chairman of the Board position.  The Yuengling Company is a separate entity that will operate as an extension of D.G. Yuengling & Son., Inc.

When can I expect to see Yuengling in new markets?
Our focus first and foremost is making sure this partnership is working smoothly so that our brewers are comfortable brewing our products the way they are meant to be made. Now that we have that set up, our iconic brands like Traditional Lager and FLIGHT by Yuengling will be in stores in the west for the first time in company history.

We are proud to announce the first step in our westward expansion will be distribution of our iconic beers into Texas, providing access to the brewery’s portfolio to millions of beer fans in the Lone Star state. The brewery anticipates rolling out beer to Texas retail locations in the fall of 2021.

What beers will be distributed in Texas?
We are excited to introduce Texas to our Traditional Lager, Light Lager 99, Golden Pilsner and FLIGHT by Yuengling.

What state is next for Yuengling?
We are focused on establishing our business in Texas before we move to further expansion. We can’t wait to share more about what we’re brewing up, so be sure to follow our channels on social media for more information.

Will any of the beers recipes change?
No. We’ll continue to follow the same iconic recipes and brewing traditions that consumers have come to love from America’s Oldest Brewery.  Fans in all states can expect the same quality and taste that have defined our beers for 190 years.

Where does Yuengling currently distribute?
Yuengling currently has a 22-state footprint along the East Coast, and will be opening the state of Texas in the fall of 2021. Consumers can find Yuengling brands by utilizing our Beer Finder here: https://www.yuengling.com/find-our-beer/

Where will The Yuengling Company be brewing?
Yuengling’s beers will be brewed locally by Texans at the Molson Coors Fort Worth brewery. The Yuengling family and its team of brewers are working hand-in-hand with the skilled team at Molson Coors to deliver the rich tradition and quality that is associated with America’s Oldest Brewery.

I’m interested in working for Yuengling in Texas, can I speak to someone about open positions?
Thank you for your interest!  Please visit the Careers section of our website for employment opportunities.
