POTTSVILLE, Pa. -

A Schuylkill County brewer is ready to extend its reach. The Yuengling Brewery has signed a letter of intent to buy a plant in Tennessee.

Yuengling's chief operating officer said Yuengling is in serious discussions about a plant in Memphis now owned by Hardy Bottling, but the deal isn't closed.

One of the owners of the plant told a board in Memphis that beer would again be brewed there. The plant would become the fourth brewing plant for Yuengling.
