On Friday Night April 16, 2010 Yuengling was honored to be the Official Beer Sponsor the the United States Field Artillery's Annual Saint Barbara's Day Ball at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. The Field Artillery Branch, as part of the U.S. Army, was founded in 1775. The Field Artillery has been "Creating the Thunder" since 1775 and America's Oldest Brewery, was honored to be a part of their annual celebrations.

The Order of Saint Barbara is a Military Honor Society for the U.S. Army Field Artillery and Air Defense Artillery. Saint Barbara is known as the Patron Saint of Artillerymen. The event was attended by the many Officers and NCO's of the West Point Field Artillery branch, their guests, and also the many Senior Cadets of West Point who have chosen to branch to the artillery service. The event included the time honored Grog Ceremony and also the Punchbowl Ceremony, in which Yuengling was one of the main ingredients. The Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Major Cherry, who attended to the Punchbowl Ceremony and hosted the entire event. The Molly Pitcher Award was given to 2 Officer's spouses. This award recognizes individuals who have voluntarily contributed in a significant way to the improvement of the Field Artillery Community.

It was a great night of celebration and camaraderie enjoyed by all and we at Yuengling wish all of the best for the soon to be graduating Cadets, NCO's, and Officers as they head to the next stop in their Army careers in keeping our country safe. Cheers to our brave service men and women and their spouses!

Matt Astill and the crew from The Australian Bar in New York City took some time to come visit America's Oldest Brewery last week. The Australian Bar & Restaurant is located at 20 West 38 Street in New York City and is a great bar & restaurant offering a unique menu featuring Australia cuisine. The staff from the bar came to tour the brewery and had an excellent time, led by Tour Guide Debbie Altobelli and accompanied by Marketing Manger Lou Romano. They learned a lot about the history of Yuengling while in Pottsville, and even got to meet Mr. Yuengling along the way. Patrons at The Australian may soon have additional Yuengling selections to choose from at the bar, as the staff was introduced to some Yuengling brews previously unknown to them. Thank you to Matt and everyone who came along for the trip, it was a pleasure having you.

We encourage all Yuengling fans, retailers and consumers alike, to come visit America's Oldest Brewery. Free tours are conducted 6 days a week.

The "Food Dude" Kevin Roberts recently visited the Philadelphia, PA market and joined us for a series of Wegmans samplings. Shoppers at the Collegeville, Downingtown, and Warrington Wegmans locations got to sample Kevin's famous wings along with several brands from the Yuengling portfolio. Shoppers enjoyed talking food with Kevin while enjoying his signature Franks Red Hot wings. Wegmans is one of a few grocery chains that is retailing beer in the state of Pennsylvania and we appreciated the opportunity to sample at these locations. Shoppers in the Philadelphia suburbs can look forward to the newest Wegmans location opening in Malvern this summer!
