Gameday Beer: Yuengling Lager
There’s a good chance you’ll be trying a variety of summer beers today, as you should on a warm and festive day such as this. Yet at the end of the night when all those beers are gone, it’s time to dance with the girl that brought you. We all know the Yuengling story and how it pairs well with everything - so pop a can or bottle and celebrate America’s long standing traditions of freedom and beer with a cold one from its oldest brewery.
