Michigan already has a plethora of beer options – but it might get another big one soon.

D.G. Yuengling & Son, which touts itself as “America’s Oldest Brewery,” hinted on social media that it plans on selling beer in a new state and offered four options: Michigan, Kentucky, Arkansas and Texas. 

Yuengling, based in Pottsville, Penn., is one of the largest breweries in the United States, producing more than 2.5 million barrels of beer throughout the country. It’s best known for its traditional lager, but also offers a light lager, a “Black & Tan” and a handful of other brews.

Many beer enthusiasts in Michigan have clamored to bring Yuengling to Michigan. One Facebook page, called “Bring Yuengling to Michigan,” has more than 2,600 likes.
