Yuengling was out at the Still Water Restaurant and Lounge in the Embassy Suites in Syracuse, NY earlier this month for a sampling event. We chose this location because of the all the guests in town for the Syracuse Nationals. The Syracuse Nationals is a car show that brings over 7000 classic and custom cars into the Syracuse area each year.

Once guests at the Embassy Suites had parked their cars for the night, the lounge filled up and it was time to enjoy some Yuengling. We had a sampling from 10-11pm. During this time patrons played Yuengling trivia and won Yuengling prizes! The car show brought in guests from all over the east coast, Canada, and even as far as Minnesota! Guests who live outside of the Yuengling distrubution area were excited for the opportunity to try our beer and many said they will be taking some home with them too. After the sampling hour was over guests finished off thier evening with $2.00 Yuengling pints.

Thank you to Cathy Merola and all of the staff at the Still Water Restaurant & Lounge for making this a successful evening.

The Yuengling team in New York was busy on July 17th, running promotions at all three Distillery Restaurant locations in the Rochester, NY market! The Distillery is a great place to meet friends for a few Yuengling's after work, or to sit down and enjoy any of their great menu selections for diner.

Yuengling held a golf promotion at all three locations in one night! The New York crew was at the Greece location from 5:30-7pm, the Winton Road location from 7:30-9pm, and the Mt. Hope Ave. location from 9:30-11pm.

During the event consumers walked away with some great Yuengling prizes including tee shirts and Yuengling Golf towels. Patrons also had the opportunity to enter to win a golf package from Yuengling that includes a golf bag and passes to play at local courses. There will be one golf package winner at each location, so be sure and enter to win! Distillery patrons enjoyed $2.75 Lager pints all evening at each location.

If you are in the Rochester, NY market and you missed the July 17th promotion, don't worry, we are doing it again this Friday, July 31st. We will be at all three locations at the times outlined above. Hope to see you there!

Yuengling was proud to be a sponsor of the 6th Annual Warren Ribfest in Warren, PA this July. The Ribfest is an annual event that brings in people from all over to sample a great selection of BBQ delights from some of the best rib spots in the state. There is also an amateur rib cooking competition at the event. Yuengling was at this years event right along side all of the delicious food, offering samples of our Traditional Lager, Light Lager, and Black & Tan. Attendees that stopped by the Yuengling tent had the opportunity to enter to win an Emotion Kayak from Yuengling while they enjoyed their samples!

The combination of great BBQ and Yuengling was a success at this year's festival. To learn more about the Warren Ribfest, visit their website.

Everyone knows that 2009 marks Yuengling's 180th Anniversary. One of our fine taverns in Pennsylvania is celebrating a milestone birthday this year as well! Duffy's Tavern in Boalsburg, PA is celebrating their 190th Anniversary! To celebrate these two great achievements, Duffy's is having a party on July 30th from 4-6pm. They are going to have a ribbon cutting ceremony to open a new section in the restaurant on this evening. They will have Yuengling specials during the event, and of course there is always great food available at Duffy's.

This is a great opportunity for students who are spending the summer at Penn State to come out and have some fun before the fall semester starts! Hope to see you Thursday!

The Schuylkill County Best of the Best round that was held at The Roundhouse in St. Clair, PA was a success. Three bands competed for a spot at the GoodFellas finale, and they all played excellent sets. Fans enjoyed performances by the bands Unleashed, Adrenalyn, and Pale Harvest. Fans also enjoyed some great Yuengling specials throughout the night. Premium, Lager, and Light Lager pints were only $1.00! The local radio station, T-102, was on hand from 8-10pm and patrons got some great summer Yuengling giveaways. Once the bands had all finished, the judges took some time to deliberate. They all agreed that Pale Harvest had put on the best show of the night, and selected them to move on to the final round.

Thanks to everyone for coming, and thank you to The Roundhouse for hosting. Enjoy the event pictures below.

The summer beer festival season is in full swing and Yuengling is proud to give festival goers a taste of something different from America's Oldest Brewery. We were recently sampling at the Sellinsgrove Beer Festival in Pennsylvania. The outdoor festival was held on a beautiful July day in Western Pennsylvania. Festival goers enjoyed sampling from 29 breweries, along with live entertainment and some great food. The Yuengling tent was busy all day long serving samples to the sold out crowd of 1300. Fans enjoyed samples of Light Lager, Lord Chesterfield Ale, and Dark Brewed Porter. 2009 was the second year for this event and the proceeds of the event support the revitalization of downtown Sellinsgrove. Thanks to everyone who came out.
