Beer Lovers Rejoice: Yuengling is Finally Available in Kentucky!


D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery, is finally being served in Kentucky. After 189 years, Kentuckians everywhere can rejoice with Yuengling’s most popular offerings: Lager, Light Lager and Black & Tan.

In March, Yuengling rolled out across the state. Fans of the much-loved brand can purchase packaged beer products, or order it on draft at local restuarants and bars. “We have been listening to our customers for some time now, and entering Kentucky was the natural next step in our expansion,” said Jen Yuengling, sixth generation brewer with D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “Kentucky’s beverage scene is rooted in history, and we could not be more proud to bring the tradition of Yuengling family products and America’s Oldest Brewery to Kentucky.”

Yuengling Brewery is a sixth generation, American-owned and family-operated company started in Pottsville, PA. It has been in operation since 1829, making it the oldest of its kind in the country. Kentucky is the 22nd state to distribute Yuengling products.

Yuengling fans in Kentucky can now enjoy the brand’s three most iconic beers, on draft and for purchase across the Bluegrass:

Yuengling Traditional Lager: The iconic American Lager, famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor, has a subtle sweetness with a combination of cluster and cascade hops.

Yuengling Light Lager: Masterfully developed to maintain the full flavor profile akin to the brand’s flagship Lager brand, but only 99 calories per 12oz serving.

Yuengling Black & Tan: A traditional English Half & Half and one of the first American handcrafted draft blends, Black & Tan combines our popular Dark Brewed Porter and Premium Beer to create a brew rich and dark in color, with hints of Carmel and coffee from the dark roasted malts.

Kentucky Eagle, Inc. was selected as one of four distributors of this highly-coveted product in our state. Like Yuengling, they are a family-owned business. Serving Kentucky since 1948, Kentucky Eagle proudly services 18 counties with their malt beverage products. In total, they distribute more than 400 brands of domestic, craft and import beers, spirits, wines, ciders, specialty beverages, mixers, energy drinks, waters, teas and food. Yuengling was the perfect fit with their other prestige beer brands.

“Kentucky Eagle Inc. is very honored to have been chosen the distributor for Yuengling Beer in Central Kentucky. The Yuengling Family Heritage is known for brewing quality beer worldwide,” said Ann Bakhaus, owner of Kentucky Eagle, Inc.  “We are so excited to now have the opportunity to offer it to our community and in Central Kentucky!”

“The expansion into the great state of Kentucky is long overdue,” said Dick Yuengling, owner and president of D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “We’re thrilled to bring our beer to our patiently waiting fans who have been requesting our brands for years.”
