No Yuengling in Ohio

My friend Dan forwarded me a story on the lack of Yuengling in Ohio. Parts of the article dealing with cult beers are interesting. The parts about Barack Obama drinking it are not. Here's what really caught my eye:

It's brewed in Pottsville, Pa., at America's oldest brewery. The name is pronounced "Ying-Ling," the locals shorten it to "Ying," and it means "young man" in German.

Ying is a good beer that recently received a "Hot Brand" award. Partly because you can't get it everywhere, it's achieved cult status. Even with the addition of a former Stroh's brewery in Tampa, it's only available in 10 states, Ohio not among them.

"Ying"?! WTF? It's lager, Ohioans.

What locals? I've never heard it called 'Ying' in my life and we've been drinking it for 13 years or so. F***ing' Ohio!
