Give them time; we started to ship some steel a couple of weeks ago for the expansion to the 'new' brewery and around the first of the year or so the walls will start to be erected.... FWIW; if you are in the area take the tour, it isn't the greatest show on earth or anything like that, but it was a darn good time with a ton of history....

do you know where? according to Yuengling they don't distribute to the region. I'm headed up there in a week or two and wouldn't mind trying to find some.

Here is another article highlighting some of their expansion plans:

Thanks for the report Revi...Im willing to bet that they are talking about opening the old Coors' Brewery here in town. It closed down around 2005 or so. If you guys remember, Blue Moon used to say Golden, CO and Memphis, TN as its two brewing facilities. It was a reference to the Coors Brewery here in town. That would be cool for them to make Yeungling here and it would be good for the city both economically and culturally. Trust me, this city needs everything it can get.

Glad to know they're expanding and that they have a brewery in Tampa. Might have to visit sometime.

We get the Black and Tan here in NC, and the Lager and Light. I have seen the Porter I think, but that's about it. I like it - good stuff. Wish the bottles were not twisties though - I have shied away from any bottles I cannot reuse. But I do get the Lager Cans for fishing trips
