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.

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

If your establishment is located in one of the states, you can reach out to your local distributor for ordering.

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.

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.

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.

Will the Bourbon Barrel Reserve be available outside the brewery, on draft, or packaged?

Bourbon Barrel Reserve is only available in the Tasting Room at the Pottsville Brewery at select events. It is not available for sale outside of the brewery, or in package beer.

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.

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 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.  Raging Eagle Mango Beer 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.

What foods pair well with Yuengling Raging Eagle Mango Beer?

Yuengling Raging Eagle Mango Beer pairs well with tangy dishes like Pad Thai (sweeter profiles match) as well as savory appetizers like fish tacos and spicy buffalo wings.
