Where does Yuengling distribute beer?  Can beer be shipped to me? 

Please check out our Beer Finder where you can search for your favorite Yuengling variety by zip code. This system can only report deliveries within the past 90 days. If you are traveling long distances it is best to call the retailer and confirm availability.

Unfortunately, federal law prohibits us from shipping beer directly to you. All of our beer reaches retailers through our wholesale partners. Yuengling is currently distributed in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington DC, and West Virginia.

 

If the demand is present, why won’t Yuengling enter more states?

 Yuengling is a regional brewery that has manufacturing facilities in Pottsville PA and Tampa FL. It simply is not logistically feasible to transport beer outside of our current footprint.

Yuengling is proud to have had ongoing expansions over the past years. The current focus is on those loyal customers that we currently supply. Continuing to provide quality beer and service to meet the existing demand is what the Yuengling family values above growing territory.

 

What is next for expansion?

There are several exciting new things happening at Yuengling. Our Tampa brewery is currently adding a new brew house. The Tampa facility is presently a 450 to 475 barrel brewery; the addition will bring the capacity to brew 675 barrels. Yuengling is continuously reinvesting in the company, making upgrades and improvements to ensure that America’s Oldest Brewery will be running for future generations. Growth in regard to geography will depend on our ability to produce and ship quality product.
