D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery®, announced the return of their limited-edition Team RWB camo cans. The Traditional Lager camo cans support Yuengling’s partnership with military veteran nonprofit Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) as part of Yuengling’s Stars & Stripes program – the brewery’s year-round initiative supporting our nation’s heroes and military veterans.
The special cans, emblazoned with a unique desert camouflage print and Team Red, White & Blue logo, mark just one of the many ways Yuengling values and pays tribute to the service men and women in our country. Starting today, the limited-edition Yuengling Lager cans will be available until the end of this summer in 12-ounce 12-pack, 12-ounce 24-pack cans as well as single-serve 24-ounce cans. The camo cans are available for purchase at fans of legal drinking age’s favorite stores, restaurants and bars across the brewery’s current 26-state-footprint.
Each camo displays a QR code co-branded with American country music star and official Yuengling Traditional Lager and Stars & Stripes program Brand Ambassador, Lee Brice. When scanned, the QR code will immerse fans in a digital Stars & Stripes experience, inviting users to enter an exclusive giveaway to win a Lee Brice Party Pack; learn more about Team RWB and donate to the organization; listen to Lee Brice’s new album called “Hey World“; and tour America’s Oldest Brewery or shop online for Stars & Stripes merchandise.
“As the Oldest Brewery in America, we are dedicated to supporting the U.S. military and are always seeking ways to further show our appreciation to those that protect our country’s freedom,” said Wendy Yuengling, Chief Administrative Officer and 6th generation family member. “We are grateful to partner with Team Red, White & Blue, an organization that shares our devotion to the men and women that have served as our nation’s heroes.”
To kick off the start to the limited-edition camo can season and this year’s Stars & Stripes program, Wendy Yuengling, alongside Aaron Nola, Philadelphia Phillies Pitcher and Yuengling Brand Ambassador, presented $55,000 to Team Red, White & Blue’s Executive Director Mike Erwin. The presentation took place at Nola’s inaugural “Bowling for The Troops” charity event at Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia.
“We’re stoked for this year’s Team RWB camo can launch and grateful for the generous support from Yuengling through the Stars & Stripes program,” said Mike Erwin, Founder and Executive Director of Team RWB. “As the nation’s leading health and wellness community for veterans, this support will enable us to deliver consistent events and programming for years to come.”
“I am thrilled to be part of Yuengling’s efforts to support Team Red, White & Blue with these limited-edition cans,” said Lee Brice. “I can’t think of anything better than saluting our troops with a nice, cold Yuengling beer this summer.”
