VICKERY'S 3-20-10

Yuengling recently sponsored an Oyster Roast at Vickery's Bar & Grill in the Charleston, SC market. The event was held outdoors on the first day of spring and the weather was perfect for the crowd to enjoy their food and drinks by the water. The crew cooking on the grill was busy all day long, and the food selections for the day included roasted oysters, barbecue, and steamed shrimp. At the Yuengling tent, fans enjoyed $2.00 pints. Thank you to everyone who came out for this event to help raise funds for the local SPCA. To learn more about Vickery's check out their website.


Check out the pictures from the St. Patrick's Day party held at Tavern 99 in Buckhead in Atlanta, GA. The event was held on Wednesday, March 17th. Party attendees had their choice of $4 mugs of Lager, Light Lager and Bock or they could drink $3 bottles of Lager, Light Lager, and Black & Tan. The Light Lager bottles were a big hit with the crowd and the tavern sold out early on in the night. The event had two bands outside under the tent, an acoustic singer inside, and a late night DJ. When the celebration was finished, Tavern 99 reported going through 21 Yuengling kegs and 25 cases of Yuengling bottles.

The Southport Raw Bar is a great local spot in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area to sit out by the water and enjoy Yuengling beer and fresh sea food. In March they held a special Yuengling birthday event. The bar hosted a surprise gathering to honor Dick Yuengling's birthday. Our wholesale partner, Gold Coast Beverage, even had a special cake made featuring an image of Mr. Yuengling on the icing. The entire staff at the bar was dressed for the occasion, wearing their best Yuengling attire. It was a great way to spend a beautiful Florida day, and won't soon be forgotten!

Thank you to Gold Coast Beverage and everyone at the Southport Raw Bar for making this a memorable birthday for Mr. Yuengling.
