Bud Light and local beverage distributor, L&F Distributors announced they will be donating $35,000 to help produce Khalid’s benefit concert “A Night for Suncity,” presented by The Great Khalid Foundation and the Right Hand Foundation. “As a local business we thought about how we could be the most impactful in our contribution to the victims’ fund,” said Lisa Peisen, Director of Marketing at L&F Distributors. “Khalid’s concert is a way that our small contribution can be amplified more than what we could do on our own.” Khalid will be headlining a benefit concert on September 1, 2019 with special guests at the Don Haskins Center on in support of the El Paso Shooting Victims’ Fund through the El Paso Community Foundation. Funds will be raised through concert tickets, donations and t-shirt sales online and at the show. About Khalid Multi-platinum selling global superstar Khalid, who was recently named one of Time’s Most Influential People of 2019, recently released his sophomore album "Free Spirit" which was declared a New York Times “Critic’s Pick” and was called “superb” by the Associated Press. The album, which has been certified platinum by the RIAA, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and features the multi-format #1 single “Talk”. Khalid catapulted into massive worldwide success when he released his first single “Location” right before his high school graduation. The song’s domination—five times platinum—led to Khalid’s major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records followed by the release of his debut album, the double-platinum certified, “American Teen”. The album, which garnered Khalid five Grammy nominations (along with numerous other nominations), received mass critical acclaim with Rolling Stone calling Khalid a “pop prodigy” and TIME Magazine stating, “His thoughtful, relatable reflections on modern youth culture and the limitations of love are just as pitch-perfect as his soulful, measured delivery.” ”American Teen” shattered expectations, as it stayed in the Top 200 for 51 weeks, peaked at #4, and stayed in the Top 20 for 48 out of the 51 weeks it was in the Top 200. The singer-songwriter has won an American Music Award, a Billboard Music Award, a Teen Choice Award, a MTV Video Music Awards, an MTV’s Woodie To Watch Award; and has been streamed over 10 billion times worldwide across all partners. Khalid has collaborated with some of music’s biggest stars including his #1 singles “Love Lies” with Normani; “Eastside” with Halsey and Benny Blanco; as well as hits with artists such as Calvin Harris (“Rollin’”), Logic and Alessia Cara (“1-800-273-8255”), Marshmello (“Silence”), Billie Eilish (“Lovely”), Shawn Mendes (“Youth”), and more. The Mayor and Council of the City of El Paso honored him with a “Key To The City” marking September 13th, 2018 “Khalid Day.” Following that Khalid dropped his “Suncity” EP. Khalid is currently on his “Free Spirit World Tour” which will take him to arena’s all over the globe in 2019. About The Great Khalid Foundation ”The Great Khalid Foundation is committed to impacting the lives of children by alleviating a burden of need. We are reaching out when it matters most, when a supportive gesture can make all the difference. We believe that the power of music not only has the ability to build confidence and camaraderie, we believe that it positively impacts social change for children, families and communities. We are committed to creating an atmosphere of support and freedom for kids to dream BIG! Through our music education programs, scholarship awards, community partnerships and gift giveaways, we are investing in our children and their future.” About Right Hand Foundation Founded by Courtney Stewart, The Right Foundation provides single mothers and children with long term housing, educational programs and infrastructure to prepare them for independent sustainability.

Win Tickets to Your Local Maluma Concert in September!

Who is this global music superstar Maluma guy that everyone keeps talking about?! Asked absolutely no one ever about international megastar and total heartthrob @MALUMA. You’ve probably heard his music on the radio or at your favorite nightclub where they play the top Latin pop hits and reggaeton beats that get you dancing the night away. Not going to lie, but we suddenly forget we have a pair of left feet when we hear tu me partiste el corazón, ¡Ay mi corazón! And if you’ve ever been on social media or have driven around the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo and El Paso highways, you’ve probably also seen him as @michelobULTRA’s brand ambassador for the #RitmoULTRA and Va Con Nuestro Ritmo advertising campaign. Alright, alright, we get it, you’re also a super fan if you’re here reading about our obsession with Maluma—let’s get to the sweet part. If you’re a resident of the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo and El Paso, and at least 21 years of age or older, the Michelob ULTRA team wants to send you and one lucky friend to the local Maluma concert in your area in September! Well, of course you have to work for them—they aren’t just handing them out like a free keychain. Maluma will be on his 11:11 World Tour on September 19th at the Sames Auto Arena in Laredo; September 22nd at the Don Haskins Center at UTEP in El Paso; and September 26th at the Bert Ogden Arena in Edinburg—part of the McAllen Metropolitan Area—in the Rio Grande Valley. What you need to do is simple and straightforward; but you must, must, must get creative in order to increase your chances of winning. Do you know what people are willing to do for a Klondike Bar!? Imagine what they’ll do for Maluma tickets. 1) Upload a video of yourself dancing—preferably to the rhythm of your favorite Maluma song—to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram 2) On the post settings, make sure the video is set to public 3) Tag the official @michelobULTRA page and use the hashtag #RitmoULTRAMcAllen, or #RitmoULTRALaredo, or #RitmoULTRAElPaso. No, you can’t use all three! That’s pretty much the gist of it. The chosen participant will be asked to verify their age and residence before being announced as the official grand prize winner of two concert tickets to the local Maluma 11:11 World Tour. No purchase is necessary to qualify for this contest. Oh! And your deadline is Sunday, September 8, 2019 exactly at 11:59 p.m. your time. Once the clock strikes midnight, you’re totally Cinderella and your video will not be considered for the contest. As usual, be sure to follow our L&F Distributors social media pages for up-to-date info on the Show Us Your Rhythm Sweepstakes and send us a direct message if you have any questions about this program.

L&F Distributors Partners With Montana-Based Brewer Montucky Cold Snacks

The L&F Distributors family is proud to announce its new partnership with Montana-based Montucky Cold Snacks, a light, refreshing lager with a 4.2 percent ABV that is going to give the value brands out there a run for their money with its full flavor, no bitter aftertaste and the great cause behind it! Co-founders Jeremy Gregory and Chad Zeitner are not about boring, conventional marketing and frills, and are avid supporters of many local non-profit organizations in the areas in which they operate. The company commits an 8 percent of sales revenue to charity, which works out great for L&F Distributors, the underwriting entity for Stars Scholarship Fund, an IRS 501 (c)(3) organization that has disbursed more than $33.7 million to scholarship recipients in the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, Corpus Christi and El Paso areas. Thus, we’re also happy to announce that Montucky will be donating 25 cents of every case sold by L&F Distributors between August and September to the Stars Scholarship Fund! ”Not only is Montucky a value brand, but it tastes great, it’s fun and it gives back to the community,” says Amy Garcia, Special Events Manager of L&F Distributors South. “Our employees loved the taste and loved it even more when they heard that the company is giving back to the Stars Scholarship—that’s, like, our baby!” The name Montucky is the local term of endearment that Montana natives use when referring to their state and the backwoods and rural parts of it, while cold snacks is a casual synonym to beer. The company is 100 percent independently owned by Jeremy and Chad, who partnered together to create a great tasting beer—or a refreshing ass beer, as they like to refer to it—that captures the American spirit of outdoor celebration and basking in the fun, present moments shared with our friends and family. For more info on Montucky, visit their website here. If you’re a non-profit organization interested in partnering with them, send them an email to info@montuckycoldsnacks.com. ...READ MORE

L&F, Community Partners Host Government Worker Appreciation BBQ

Throughout the next couple of weeks, L&F Distributors, together with many of our community partners, will be hosting a Government Worker Appreciation BBQ at your local L&F Warehouse as a small effort to assist furloughed federal government workers affected by the extended government shutdown. We don’t believe that it is fair for hardworking civilians to go weeks without a reliable paycheck. Please join us for some good carne asada and—if you’re in the El Paso area—some Texas-style brisket. You have the options to dine at our warehouse or pick up a plate to go from us. Please be sure to have your federal government worker ID badge on hand as it will be required to confirm that we’re indeed providing for our affected government workers. All warehouses will distribute as many BBQ plates as supplies allow. L&F McAllen BBQ Saturday, January 26, 2019 between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. 3900 N McColl Rd, McAllen, TX 78501 L&F Harlingen BBQ Saturday, January 26, 2019 between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. 3502 TX-54 Spur, Harlingen, TX 78552 L&F El Paso BBQ Wednesday, January 23, 2019 between 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. 6969 Market Street, El Paso, TX 79915 L&F Laredo BBQ Saturday, February 2, 2019 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. 410 Crossroads Loop, Laredo, TX 78045 The Laredo Warehouse will host the BBQ the Saturday prior to Super Bowl Sunday during the same time as their Bud Light Alumni Super Tailgate Bowl event. This event, however, is strictly for people 21 years of age or older and no children or minors will be admitted to the event grounds. Federal government employees entering the event cannot be accompanied by anyone under 21, but they are welcome to take BBQ plates for their families when they leave. Furthermore, during the L&F El Paso BBQ, we will also be donating a $5,000 check to the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank that will help provide 35,000 healthy meals to the El Paso community. This donation was made possible through a Stella Artois holiday fundraising program on behalf of the food bank. The L&F Warehouses in the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo and Corpus Christi have also donated to their local food banks and made check presentations throughout the last week. We’re looking forward to making the best out of these challenging times with you! If you have any questions, please send us a message through our Contact Page. Finally, thank you to our local Rio Grande Valley and El Paso media for helping us spread awareness of our BBQ events.

L&F Celebrates 40th Anniversary in Beer Biz

This year, L&F Distributors is celebrating its 40th anniversary in the beer business. Without our friends, family and communities, we wouldn't have made it this far. It all started in 1978 when Joe LaMantia Jr was granted an exclusivity contract for an Anheuser-Busch distributorship in McAllen, Texas. On the day of the ground-breaking, L&F Distributors only had 20 employees. Today, we have more than 1,200 employees throughout eight warehouses in Texas and Southern New Mexico, and we service more than 35 counties within these regions. Here's a quick video to thank our communities for all the support. Cheers to you and cheers to the next 40 years! ...READ MORE

10 Barrel Brewing Celebrates Last Blockbuster in U.S.

Break out the Red Vines, grab a box of Milk Duds, fire up the Jiffy Pop, and pop your favorite ‘90s flick in the VCR: Blockbuster is not dead — and it’s even got its own beer now. Called the Last Blockbuster, the beer is a collaboration between Bend, Ore.-based craft brewery 10 Barrel Brewing and the once-great home video rental giant. Lest that collaboration sound a little… uh… confusing, however, it actually makes a lot of sense: At this point in time, there is one remaining Blockbuster video rental store in the United States — and it, like 10 Barrel, is located in Bend. You’ll have to act fast if you want to try the beer, though; it’s not going to be around for long....READ MORE
