Yuengling beer to arrive in Ohio Oct. 3

    Too early for beer news?

    We say never, so here you go:

    The oldest brewer in the U.S. ‘hops’ into the Ohio market in two stages.

    The maker of Yuengling says it will begin distributing its beers in northeast Ohio and Columbus beginning Oct. 3. WTAM radio of Cleveland says the rest of the state–including Cincinnati and Toledo–will start seeing the brews in November.

    D.G. Yuengling & Son of Pottsville, Pa., distributes its beer mostly in East Coast and southeastern states. Ohio will become the 14th state for the company founded in 1829.
