Yuengling is not a name that's new to Pennsylvanians, in fact, Yuengling has been brewing up fine lagers and ales here since 1829. The newest product to carry the Yuengling family name, and rightfully so, is Yuengling Traditional Lager Bacon Barbecue Sauce.
My oldest son at 14 years of age is already a barbecue sauce buff and he gave this his seal of approval in a big way. This tangy, smoky and savory sauce is the perfect complement to burgers, chicken and pulled pork. Here's our burger topped with the sauce and below is the press release. If you live near any one of the supermarkets this is carried at (see bottom of the release) you must get there and try a bottle for yourself. You won't be disappointed and you may wind up falling in love. After all, there's "bacon" in the name!

All-N-Food and Yuengling Add Savory Bacon-Flavored Barbecue Sauce to Expanding Line of Beer-Infused Creations
Former A-B Execs and America’s Oldest Brewery Deliver the Sizzle in New Sauce
POTTSVILLE, PA, (January 31, 2014) – All-N-Food, LLC, creator of six tasty wing and barbecue sauces infused with a variety of Yuengling beer styles, launches the latest addition – Yuengling Traditional Lager Bacon Barbecue Sauce – the company announced today. Combining the smoky sizzle of bacon with the roasted caramel malt of Yuengling Traditional Lager yields a perfectly blended barbecue sauce that ignites flavors for grilling, basting or dipping. Try the rich and zesty sauce on beef, pork, chicken or even scallops (get the Double Bacon BBQ Scallops recipe here.)
The partnership between All-N-Food (ANF) and D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. began with the development of three wing sauces and three barbecue sauces that were introduced in southeastern states in early 2013. The two guys behind ANF, marketer Danny R. Scott and chef Brent E. Wertz approached Richard “Dick” Yuengling, fifth-generation owner of America’s oldest brewery, because of their shared dedication to top-quality production, appreciation for great tasting beer and enthusiasm for pairing and cooking with a variety of brews for various occasions.
“My passion is layering bold, complex flavors and textures and I’d been intrigued for a long time by bringing together bacon and beer – two of America’s favorites – in a barbecue sauce,” said Chef Brent Wertz. “The mouthwatering result is a smokin’ little slice of heaven bursting with zing on the end of your fork, or if savored properly…dripping from your fingertips.”
Yuengling Traditional Lager Bacon Barbecue Sauce is the seventh ANF brand developed with a Yuengling beer as a key ingredient. The sauce is currently available in 20-ounce bottles at Food Lion supermarkets in Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic States.
“The wing and original barbecue sauces had a solid launch last year and this latest brand extension is evidence of the strength and growth of the Yuengling partnership,” Scott said. “We are excited about the next few months as we plan other exciting All-N-Food ventures and continue expanding and developing new products.”
In addition to three barbecue sauces – Yuengling Traditional Lager Barbecue Sauce, Yuengling Hickory Smoked Porter Barbecue Sauce and Yuengling Black & Tan Honey Barbecue Sauce in 20-ounce bottles, there are three wing sauces – Yuengling Light Lager Mild Wing Sauce, Yuengling Medium Lager Wing Sauceand Yuengling Lager Hot Wing Sauce in 13-ounce bottles. These varieties are carried in more than 3,000 grocery stores and retail outlets in 17 Eastern and Mid-Atlantic States from Delaware to Georgia, such as Food Lion, Stop & Shop, Winn Dixie, Weis, Wegman’s and Piggly Wiggly supermarkets.
