America’s Oldest Brewery® is “Raising the Bar” as it announces the release of its newest beer with brand ambassadors and new advertising campaign

POTTSVILLE, Pa. (February 25, 2020) D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc., America’s Oldest Brewery®, announced today the launch of FLIGHT by Yuengling, a new upscale light beer designed to elevate the drinking experience for consumers who want more from their beer. Born from six generations of brewing expertise, FLIGHT by Yuengling is the Next Generation of Light BeerTM that will bring even better taste, with a low carbs and calories, to the refreshment category.

Yuengling is “Raising the Bar” by pouring more than 190 years of brewing expertise into crafting and redefining what consumers deserve in an upscale light beer. With 2.6 grams of carbs, 95 calories, and 4.2% ABV, FLIGHT by Yuengling is a crisp, easy-to-drink beer that will complement the brewery’s existing portfolio of brands.

“Recognizing an opportunity in the light beer category, we have been working to deliver an upscale refreshment brand that fits within the active lifestyles of today’s consumers,” said Jennifer Yuengling, Vice President of Operations and 6th generation family member, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. “Our family brewing business was built on providing consumers with a high-quality, great tasting drinking experience for social occasions. We have spent more than a year perfecting FLIGHT by Yuengling, taking the taste of this light beer to new heights, and can’t wait for our fans and light beer drinkers to try it.”

FLIGHT by Yuengling is the latest year-round offering from America’s Oldest Brewery®, and part of Yuengling’s mission to not only brew iconic, traditional beers, but to Raise the BarTM for flavor and refreshment across the beer category.  Starting in March, FLIGHT by Yuengling will be available in 12-ounce bottles across Yuengling’s entire 22-state footprint.  Draught will be available in select markets in the second half of the year.

The FLIGHT brand name is a unique take on light beer, with a nod to D.G. Yuengling & Son’s iconic eagle logo.  The brands’ modern packaging design and sleek wing logo is a contemporary take on the brewery’s traditional eagle logo and is a tribute to D.G. Yuengling’s original Eagle Brewery built in 1829.

FLIGHT will be supported by the fully integrated Raise the BarTM campaign which is built off the brewery’s foundation of hard work, passion and pride.  The campaign will encourage consumers to strive to be the best versions of themselves and continue to push themselves in their lives. These qualities are exemplified by Yuengling’s newest brand ambassadors Rose Lavelle, American professional soccer star, and Lauren Alaina, award-winning country singer, songwriter and actress. Rose and Lauren embody the spirit and passion of “Raising the Bar,” with their drive to pursue their own standards of success and personal growth, whether it’s on the field or on the stage. As FLIGHT brand ambassadors, Rose and Lauren will represent the brand via personal appearances and performances, fan meet & greets, special promotions and sweepstakes, and prominent roles in the new multichannel advertising campaign.

As America’s Oldest Brewery®, Yuengling continues to create new opportunities for consumers to enjoy the brand, including the releases of Yuengling Golden Pilsner and Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter. FLIGHT by Yuengling is the latest introduction influenced by consumer feedback, and fans can expect more exciting announcements in 2020.
