D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery is bringing its brands in their Iconic Eagle packaging to Arkansas starting today. Yuengling began selling its draft beer in January.
Yuengling Brewery is a sixth generation, American-owned and family-operated company that started in Pottsville, PA in 1829.
“We’ve had a terrific expansion into Arkansas and its final phase should bring smiles to fans’ faces,” said Jennifer Yuengling, VP of Operations for D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “Whether you’re cheering on your favorite team at a sports bar or just relaxing with friends at home, you can now celebrate that moment with a Yuengling beer.”
Arkansas is the twenty-first state to distribute Yuengling products and it will roll out with its three core brands:
- Yuengling Traditional Lager: a rich amber lager with a well-balanced taste and distinct character, this flagship beer delivers the quality and taste that rivals any craft beer today at an above premium price;
- Yuengling Light Lager: a 99 calorie offering with the full-bodied, gratifying flavor akin to the flagship Traditional Lager;
- Yuengling Black & Tan: a satisfyingly smooth blend of dark-brewed Porter and a regional favorite, Premium beer.
Yuengling is proud to partner with five wholesalers to distribute Yuengling brands to consumers in Arkansas; Glazer’s Beer & Beverage, Premium Brands of NWA, Arkansas Distributing Company, O’Connor Distributing and Burford Distributing, Inc.
Yuengling announced two state rollouts for 2018. Kentucky will become the 22nd state in the brewery’s footprint later this spring. Yuengling previously rolled out distribution in Indiana, its 20th state in March 2017.
