To any Schuylkill County natives who live in and around Mississippi, Yuengling is coming your way.

D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery, announced Wednesday that it is expanding the distribution of its highly sought after brands to Mississippi.

Four wholesalers have been assigned to distribute Yuengling products in the state. Yuengling welcomes into their network; Southern Beverage Company, Rex Distributing Company, A&B Distributing Company and Southwest Distributors.

“Southern Beverage Co. is enthusiastic about Mississippians experiencing the great taste of Yuengling’s beers!” said Theo Costas, Owner of Southern Beverage Company. “Yuengling’s expansion into Mississippi is very exciting for the beverage industry and fans. We look forward to this great opportunity and long term relationship with America’s Oldest Brewery.”

The initial rollout in early January, will include Yuengling’s flagship beer, Yuengling Lager, as well as Light Lager and Black & Tan brands. Mississippi will also see Yuengling’s seasonal beers in 2016, starting with their Summer Wheat in April.

Numerous additions and upgrades to Yuengling’s production capabilities facilitated this venture. Mississippi will become the eighteenth state in the brewery’s footprint.
