Yuengling, Phillies team up for 2017 season and beyond

'Phillies baseball and beer are 2 of my passions'

PHILADELPHIA - Opening day of the baseball season in Philadelphia brought about a new partnership between the Phillies and D.G. Yuengling & Son Inc.

The Pottsville-based brewery announced Friday a multi-year agreement with the Phillies to feature Yuengling beer at Citizens Bank Park.

"Phillies baseball and beer are two of my passions, so we are thrilled to partner with one of the iconic teams in our home state," said Dick Yuengling, the brewery's owner and president. "Watching America's favorite pastime while enjoying a Yuengling Traditional Lager from America's Oldest Brewery is what brings fans together."

Sponsorship with the Phillies includes a sign on the outfield wall, a digital sign, and an in-stadium sign, all featuring the brewery's flagship beer, Yuengling Traditional Lager.

"We are proud to welcome Yuengling to the Phillies family," said Dave Buck, the team's senior vice president of marketing and advertising sales. "Like the Phillies, Yuengling has a long history in Pennsylvania. It's a natural synergy – and a great addition to the ballpark’s off-the field lineup."

Lager, Light Lager, and Black & Tan also continue to be sold at the ballpark.

Yuengling is the Phillies' first new beer sponsor in nearly 40 years.

The sponsorship is supported by Yuengling business partner Origlio Beverage.
