    Yuengling moving into the Midwest

    http://www.memphisdailynews.com/edit....aspx?id=53550

    Looks like they want to market outside of the East Coast / South. This will increase my fuel economy every time I come back from Pennsylvania - there will be less weight in the trunk.

    It's nice that they're expanding, but I'll put any Michigan Microbrew (anything from Bell's, New Holland, Arcadia, Shorts, Milking It, Jolly Pumpkin or Dark Horse anyway) up against Yuengling any day.

    And is it really Yuenglings if it's not from Pennsylvania? Kinda like Rolling Rock from New Jersey. Somehow that just seems wrong to me.

    AB ruined RR when they took the production out of Latrobe, but I bet that you can't taste the difference between a Sam Adams made at one brewery from one made elsewhere.

    What I've been told is that Ohio is one of the largest states for beer consumption, and that Yuengling could not keep up with the demand that expansion into Ohio would bring.

    Just what I've heard, please don't shoot the messenger!!!

    Sounds somewhat plausible. Up North here in Cleveland we drink so much of it we started Cleveland Beer Week two years ago.

    The website sucks, but the beer is flowing. Supposedly we consume more craft beer up here than anywhere else in the state.

    I don't normally consider Yuengling a microbrew, but we're almost to the point in the industry that anything not owned operated by InBev/AB or Miller-Coors has to be a micro.
