Yuengling Golden Pilsner Summer Food Pairing Guide {GIVEAWAY}

Share Article

Last year, for the first time in 17 years, Yuengling Brewery added a new beer to their annual offerings.

Yuengling Golden Pilsner, a European-style Pilsner, joined the likes of Yuengling Lager, Light, and Black and Tan to help round out their lineup and give all beer drinkers a new option from America’s oldest brewery.

Yuengling Golden Pilsner is exactly what you expect from the style. It’s light, crisp, and refreshing with a low ABV and tinge of bitterness. This beer has summer written all over.

Pilsners are perfect to pair with food. They can complement your dish, plus they are light so they won’t fill you up while you eat.

As a bonus, they pair extremely well with some of summer’s favorite dishes.

Steamed Crabs

Picture a table filled with steamed crabs covered in Old Bay seasoning.

Next, picture a metal tub filled with ice and Yuengling Golden Pilsner. This is an awesome pairing for a couple of reasons.

For one, you need a lot of time and effort to pick through the crab meat to get yourself a full meal. You don’t want something heavy or high in ABV weighing you down as you go through six to seven of those bad boys.

Second, crab meat is so good (but delicate) that anything super hoppy or fruited-up would diminish what you’re really after.

Last, Old Bay has that signature kick to it, and the slight hoppiness of Golden Pilsner will turn the heat up just a touch.

Summer Salads

If you want a refreshing pairing that can also help you stay on that summer beach bod diet, this is your go-to.

Crisp and refreshing, Yuengling Golden Pilsner will pair wonderfully with the light crunch and bright acidity of the best summer salads.

Plus, because summer = day drinking, Golden Pilsner’s 4.7% ABV is the definition of a lunch beer.

Fried Chicken

A pilsner’s balance of malt and hops really can go with any style chicken you make.

You could throw some on the grill with lemon or BBQ sauce, or treat yourself to a little fried chicken.

Yuengling Golden Pilsner’s light body and crisp profile add a bit of acidity that cuts through the crispy fried chicken skin. Plus, since fried chicken is a bit of a heavier dish, pairing something lighter allows you to go ahead and grab that second drumstick. Beach bod be damned!

Golden Pilsner is also the perfect beer for your beach excursions, mowing beer, or something you can take to a party that everyone will be able to enjoy.

This week, we’re giving away a Yuengling Golden Pilsner cooler!
