WEST VIRGINIA - HERE WE COME

Yuengling Opens the Neighboring State of WV

Pottsville, PA, April 2009 – D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery, is pleased to announce that it is expanding sales into the state of West Virginia.

Sixteen distributors have been assigned to open the entire state. Yuengling is proud to welcome into our wholesaler network: American Beer Co., Beverage Distributors, Carenbauer Distributing Co., Eagle Distributing Co., Elkins Distributing Co., J.C. Mensore Distributor, Jefferson Distributing Co., Mingo Bottling Co., Mona Supply Co., Inc., Mountain Eagle Distributing, Northern Eagle, Preston Silver Eagle, Proud Eagle – S. Charleston and Parkersburg, Valley Distributing Co., and Waldorf Distributing Co.

Yuengling will introduce Lager, Light Lager and Black & Tan packaged beer in May, and likely start shipping draft later this summer.

“The state of West Virginia and Yuengling brand aficionados have eagerly awaited this announcement as avid patrons will no longer have to cross state lines to enjoy their favorite beverage,” stated Larry Oleksa, President/Owner of Mona Supply Co., Inc. “We anticipate an unprecedented rollout of the Yuengling brands in May 2009. Our entire staff of dedicated employees looks forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come.”

“Yuengling has experienced a good share of the market in neighboring states to its home state of Pennsylvania. Coupled with the strong demand of our products, expansion into the state of West Virginia was a natural choice for us.” commented Lou Romano, Yuengling Marketing Manager. “We feel our core company values of family, heritage, quality and tradition are reflected not only in the wholesale network, but in the residents of the state as well,” Romano added.

“The time has come and the Yuengling family of beers represents the final frontier. I can think of no other brand left in this country that has the potential to satisfy consumers’ tastes more than the Yuengling brands,” remarks Carl Carenbauer, President/Owner of Carenbauer Distributing Corp.

Come to New England, you would make a killing here, trust me. I don't understand why you go west and leave us out of the loop.

I'm so excited I can't control myself, I saw the Yuengling Truck outside of Morgantown on Saturday...I don't know what I'll do when I offically see it in the store, (well, besides buy it). I couldn't be happier. By the way jkozer I hope you get Yuengling in New England, but we are South of PA not west.

Will Yuengling Porter and Lord Chesterfield Ale eventually be available in West Virginia?

I did some checking today in the Wheeling area, and could only find Yuengling Lager, Light Lager and Black And Tan at CVS and Smoker Friendly.

Corgitoy-

Initially the three brands that you cited will be available. In time you may see the other brands become available in your market. Make sure your local retailers know that you are interested in the other brands as well.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your Yuengling!

Hello Yuengling,

Im really curious to know when you might sell in Ohio. As you can see in the comments others want it. I also started a group on Facebook for the very same thing. with over 1150 members, i think you can tell we want it.

When I go to MD i get yuengling, when I go to PA, I buy 4 cases at a time. Just rolled back from florida and was so jealous they have it, jammed 2 cases in the car until i can get to morgantown!

If you just bring it to Ohio, people from Michigan, Indiana, and Kentucky will flock here. Until you do, I will continue to make the pilgrimage towards mecca for a great line of beers!

is it legal for a store to go buy from the brewery or a distibutor and bring back to ohio to sell in their store?

Kinda sucks only getting yeungling at home, but now I'm bring cases and cases back for my friends. I'm buying atleast 12-20 cases every 3 months for people. I think they'll do fine selling in Columbus alone.
