The bad news? You'll have one fewer reasons to make a road trip for beer. The good news? Yuengling will be distributed in Ohio this year, possibly by October, according to a recent release from the brewery in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. [Full story]

"The launch in your state is going to be huge," said Pat Noone, the brewery’s business development manager. "It’s probably going to be the most successful launch in Yuengling’s history.”

In the Buckeye State, the company plans to unleash Traditional Lager, Original Black & Tan, Porter and Lord Chesterfield Ale. So what took it so long?

“Ohio is one of largest states in the country and in terms of beer consumption, and we needed to make sure that when we did come, we were able to service the state properly,” Noone explained.
