D.G. Yuengling & Son, the oldest brewery and largest independent brewing company in the nation, is celebrating its 190th anniversary with a series of limited-edition beer releases.

Beginning this month and continuing through April, Yuengling will release five limited-edition cans of Yuengling Lager, one per month, showcasing how the label design has evolved over time.

Additionally, on January 11, the brewery will release a limited-edition Bourbon Barrel Reserve beer at its Pottsville, Pa. location. The beer was aged in caves under the brewery that were hand-dug in the 1800s, according to the company. Prior to this beer, the caves had not been used since before Prohibition, USA Today reports.

Yuengling, based in Pottsville, Pa. since 1829, was originally called Eagle Brewery, which its logo still alludes to today. The company has additional operations in Tampa, Fla., and Mill Creek, Pa.
