WV CHAMBER 2-17-10

Yuengling recently attended a West Virginia Chamber of Commerce event with our wholesale partner, Mona Distributing. The event was held last Wednesday evening at the Hilton Garden Inn, and included some excellent beer and food pairing samples for everyone to enjoy. The impressive menu included crab cakes, beef tenderloin, Hawaiian style chicken kabobs, spring rolls, artisan breads, and prime rib. To compliment this great menu, there was quite the selection of Yuengling available! Fans could choose from Traditional Lager, Light Lager, Lord Chesterfield Ale, Porter, and our Seasonal Bock Beer. At the Yuengling table, attendees learned a lot about the history of America's Oldest Brewery. Attendees also had the chance to win a collectible Yuengling 180th Anniversary Mirror. Events like these demonstrate the excitement that has been evident in the WV market since Yuengling entered the state last year.

Thank you to Chef Jason Hammack and Mike Layne for your help with this event and your continued support of the Yuengling brands. Also, thank you to the Hilton Garden Inn of Morgantown for hosting, and to all of their staff for putting on a successful event.

Yuengling was out for an afternoon at the lodge this past Sunday at the Holiday Valley Ski Resort in Ellicottville, NY. The slopes were packed on this Valentine's Day and many patrons were looking forward to an extended weekend thanks to the President's Day holiday that followed on Monday. Holiday Valley is a great spot to enjoy the NY winter weather. They have all your Yuengling needs covered in the lodge too, with three Yuengling spigots throughout, so that you are sure to get your Lager when it is time to wind down at the end of the day! Patrons enjoying Yuengling at the lodge on Sunday were from all over New York State, and there were even skiers who had traveled from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Chicago to ski Holiday Valley. Giveaways for the day included Yuengling long sleeve tees, winter hats, and even a Yuengling snowboard for the grand prize!

As we have been reporting, the text to win program for the Lake Placid Trip is still open in the New York market, and skiers at this event were excited about the chance to hit the slopes with Yuengling later this season. Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the day with us and thank you to our wholesale partner, Certo Brothers South. Enjoy the pictures below!

Yuengling attended Central New York's 14th Annual Brew Fest earlier this month. The event was held at the NY State Fair grounds in the Horticultural Building. This annual event is highly anticipated, and offers two sampling sessions to split up the crowd. Visitors were able to taste craft beers from 60 different breweries. At the Yuengling table attendees enjoyed our seasonal Bock Beer along with Dark Brewed Porter and Traditional Lager. There was a positive response to all of the Yuengling Brands sampled. Attendees particularly enjoyed the Dark Brewed Porter, a winter time favorite for many Yuengling fans. The New York market is still collecting entries for their Lake Placid Trip giveaway. This event was no exception, with the text to win details posted for all to see!

Thank you to our wholesale partner Onondaga Beverage and all of the volunteers that helped make this event a success!

At the Yuengling booth, attendees enjoyed sampling Lager, Light Lager, Black & Tan, Dark Brewed Porter, and Lord Chesterfield Ale.

Like many beer festivals, this event featured live music, food pairings, and beer seminars; one of which featured Yuengling Dark Brewed Porter as a point of discussion. Overall this was a great event, thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed Yuengling!
