I am from the East Coast and saw a posting on craigslist from Yuengling Lager.

[url]https://post.craigslist.org/manage/3905484715[/url]

I went to a liquor store to find it and could not. Does anybody know a liquor store in the Denver metro area that sells Yuengling Lager? It is a great beer, but nobody at the stores seems to know of it.

It's at Biggie's Liquors in Conifer. Down the hill try Tipsy's in Littleton. They are huge and carry everything.

Yuengling does not have a wholesaler/distributor in Colorado.Therefore if Yuengling is at Biggie's or Tipsy's based on my understanding of Colorado liquor laws it's there illegally, and most liquor stores do not want to risk their liquor license to stock it so I am skeptical of that.

Craigslist or getting it shipped to you are better options. Although I enjoy Yuengling I do not think it is worth that much hassle, but that's up to you.

Drink Coors instead, difference is minimal IMHO.

Why don't you try out some of the great craft beers that Colorado has to offer?

Default Not likely to find it

Find a Yuengling distributor near you
It appears that you have to drive to Tennessee.

I moved back east to eastern Pennsylvania after a 22 year stint in the Denver metro area.
Yuengling is no where to be found in Colorado.
If you saw it had to have been brought into the state by a private party.

Yuengling is bottled in it's original location in Pottsville, PA approx an hour away from where I currently live.
Since Anheuser Busch is now owned by a foreign company Yuengling is now Americas largest and oldest brewery.
It's still owned by the Yuengling family who started it in 1873. www.yuengling.com

It's the beer that grew up with the coal miners of Schuykill County, PA that, if you annoyed at the bar, would use your body as a punching bag and would put out their cigarettes in your eye sockets.

Pottsville, PA is still a rough, isolated coal cracker town that would rather stay firmly in the mid twentieth century than bow to any outside influences.

They follow no trends

It's this reason alone that makes Yuengling the beer that an American should drink and lucky for me and the 12 Million other Pennsylvanians and the whole of the northeast it's available in our own backyards.

They now have a plant also in the Southeast....Florida or Carolinas if I recall correctly.

It's the beer of Western PA as well as East.

Do this^^^.

I admit Yuengling is one of the better low-cost beers if you need something to wet your whistle and don't want to spend a lot.

But being in Denver/Colorado, you have a ton of great breweries to try:

Great Divide (YETI!!!!)
Breckenridge
New Belgium
Boulder Beer
Carver (in Durango)

...and literally hundreds of others!
