America’s oldest brewer, D.G. Yuengling & Son, will soon have its bubbly brews available across the U.S.

D.G. Yuengling & Son has announced a collaboration with Molson Coors to increase production of its famed beer and distribute it in the Western United States next year. Up until now, the beer was only available in a 22-state distribution area in the East.

The company — which is family-owned and based in Pottsville, Pa. — will offers its Traditional Lager and Black & Tan brews in the added states.

D.G. Yuengling & Son started making beer in 1829. The brewery, which is known for its German-style lager, will stay independent.
