Yuengling & Glazer’s Make Iconic First Delivery to San Antonio’s River Walk via River Barge
Yuengling, America’s Top Craft Beer, Launches in San Antonio for the first time with Glazer’s Beer and Beverage of Texas. Yuengling, America’s Oldest brewery and leading craft brand, is bringing the goods to the Alamo City. Now San Antonio residents and fans across the state can enjoy the iconic beverage on-tap, at-home or at their favorite destinations throughout South Central Texas where Glazer’s distributes.
“We are honored to be the distribution partner for The Yuengling Company in Texas and to become a part of the Yuengling family,” said Nicholas Meyers, Portfolio Manager at Glazer’s Beer and Beverage of Texas. “For years we have heard the demand for America’s oldest brewery, and we are excited to finally share this iconic beer with our retailers around the state.”
Family owned and operated for more than 192 years, the cherished Yuengling family recipes and proprietary yeast were transported via armored truck over a three-day journey, starting in Pottsville, Pennsylvania and ending in Fort Worth, Texas so that Yuengling’s beers would be brewed locally in Texas to their highest standards of excellence.
Fan-favorite brands Yuengling Traditional Lager, famous for its rich amber color, Light Lager 99, Golden Pilsner and FLIGHT by Yuengling, the Next Generation of Light beer with only 2.6 carbs and 95 calories, are now available for purchase throughout the state.
Led by the Sixth Generation Yuengling Wendy, Jen, Debbie and Sheryl Yuengling alongside their father, Fifth Generation owner Dick Yuengling, the family is excited to finally make their beloved beer available to fans in Texas after years of demand.
Fans can rest assured that the Yuengling beers will be brewed to Yuengling perfection here in their new home, and can look out for fun ways the brand plans to engage with Texas fans in the coming months by following along on their Facebook page, on Twitter and Instagram, as well as by visiting www.Yuengling.com.
