180TH CELEBRATION

Yesterday's 180th Anniversary party at America's Oldest Brewery was a great time. We lucked out and got a beautiful summer day here in Northeast Pennsylvania. Our Core Sales Division Manager, Rob Schimony, was cooking up a storm all day long on the grill. Visitors were greeted with their choice of Black & Tan bratwursts, hot dogs, and drinks when they arrived at the brewery. People came from all over to tour the facility, and many of our local tavern owners and distributors took time out of their day to attend as well. The local radio station, T-102, was broadcasting live all afternoon. They featured interviews with many members of the team here at Yuengling. They gave away prizes all afternoon and as a grand prize they gave away a signed 180th Anniversary mirror.
One of the biggest hits of the day was brewery tour guide Debbie Altobelli, who was dressed in a gigantic Lager bottle costume. Debbie jumped at the opportunity to spend the day meeting and greeting the visitors. Tour guide, Sharron Nassar also joined in on the fun with her Lager mug costume!
Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us at the event yesterday. Also, thanks to everyone who contributed to the planning and organizing of the event. The gift shop staff did an excellent job with all of the tour traffic that such and event brings!

The local news station WNEP was on site filming as well. You can check out their report below.

If you missed this party you missed a good one! My son from Colorado really enjoyed the brewery tour. We came away with some great items from the Gift Shop and the outside tent.
