D.G. Yuengling and Son Inc. recently announced a partnership with celebrity chef and restaurateur Kelsey Barnard Clark. This partnership marks the brewery’s first ever chef collaboration and celebrates food and beer occasions throughout the year that bring family and friends together.
“Some of my most beloved memories come from spending time with family and friends over food and drinks,” said Clark. “Yuengling beer has always been a staple in my household and a unique, quality ingredient I’ve used for some of my favorite dishes. I’m thrilled to partner with Yuengling, a brand so deeply rooted in family traditions, and of course, excellent beer, to introduce beer and food pairings and new recipes and to help fans cook up some memorable experiences.”
As part of the partnership Sheryl Yuengling, sixth generation family member and graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Culinary Arts, and Chef Kelsey, have combined their experience and passions for cooking to develop brand new, custom recipes that feature the bold flavors of Yuengling’s iconic beers, including Yuengling Traditional Lager, Golden Pilsner and Oktoberfest. Foodies and Yuengling fans alike can view these special recipes at www.yuengling.com/food and create their own meals for special occasions, from intimate dinners with loved ones to legendary big game parties.

Kelsey and I have had the pleasure of developing our own recipes for the past several months, and we can’t wait for our fans to pair these full-flavored creations with their favorite Yuengling beers.”
