D.G. Yuengling & Son Inc. on Tuesday announced a partnership with celebrity chef and acclaimed restaurateur Kelsey Barnard Clark.
It marks the Pottsville-based brewery’s first chef collaboration, intended to celebrate 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,” Clark was quoted in a news release from Yuengling. “Yuengling beer has always been a staple in my household and a unique, quality ingredient I’ve used for some of my favorite dishes.”
As part of the partnership, Sheryl Yuengling, sixth generation family member and graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Culinary Arts, and Clark have combined their experiences and passions for cooking to develop custom recipes that feature the flavors of Yuengling’s iconic beers, including Traditional Lager, Golden Pilsner and Oktoberfest. View the recipes at www.yuengling.com/food.
“Yuengling has been a key ingredient for brewing good times for nearly 200 years,” said Sheryl Yuengling. “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.”
Dinner in the caves
Fans will also have a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime exclusive VIP dinner event, hosted and catered by Clark and Yuengling in the iconic hand-dug caves at the America’s Oldest Brewery in Pottsville. Additionally, beer and food lovers will have the opportunity to create the specialty recipes in their own kitchens by entering for a chance to win a year-long supply of groceries at cookwithyuengling.com.
Clark’s deep family roots and love for Yuengling makes her the perfect brand ambassador who not only shares Yuengling’s family values, but also understands how to incorporate Yuengling’s authentic flavors into amazing dishes that are perfect for home and social gatherings, the brewery announced.
She will be featured on various point-of-sale items throughout Yuengling’s 22-state footprint and will make appearances to meet and cook with Yuengling customers.
