WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Nearly four months after Yuengling announced that it would begin selling beer in Kansas, the popular beer brand has begun appearing at Kansas bars and restaurants. 

A company spokesperson confirmed the rollout began Monday and that Emerson Biggins West and WalkOns in northwest Wichita hosted launch parties Wednesday. Retail stores will start to receive Yuengling in March. 

Kansas is part of a three-state expansion announced in October. The other states are Missouri and Oklahoma. 

The spokesperson said "this multi-state launch represents a milestone in our work to expand Yuengling’s reach beyond its current 23-state Eastern footprint."

Yuengling & Son, Inc., has family-owned and operated since 1829, and production is supported by breweries in Pottsville, Pennsylvania and Tampa, Florida.
