L&F Distributors and Anheuser-Busch Partner for Release of Ukrainian Tribute Beer, Chernigivske
L&F Distributors is pleased to announce the release of Chernigivske draught beer to the McAllen, Corpus Christi and El Paso areas.
Proceeds of the European-style lager—brewed by Anheuser-Busch—will be donated to the CARE® Ukraine Crisis Fund to provide humanitarian support to people affected by the Russo-Ukrainian war.
“Anheuser-Busch is brewing Chernigivske to be consistent with the original recipe of Ukraine’s flagship beer,” says Lisa Peisen Richardson, Director of Marketing for L&F Distributors. “It will only come in draught form, which is great, because the kegs safeguard aroma and taste—and we don’t want anyone to miss out on the crispness and taste of this one.”
The tribute beer is named after the Chernigivske brewery in Ukraine that first introduced the European-style lager in 1988 to the city of Chernihiv. It has a sweet aroma with a flavor profile of light spice that is crisp and refreshing. All profits made by sales of Chernigivske will directly benefit people affected by the February 2022 Russian invasion, which displaced 7.5 million Ukrainians. Additionally, Anheuser-Busch InBev is donating emergency drinking water and $5 million to other non-profit organizations participating in the global humanitarian initiative....READ MORE

L&F Distributors and the Delgado Collective Partner for Food Drive to Benefit Bar & Restaurant Industry Workers Affected by COVID-19 Pandemic and Texas Winter Storm
L&F Distributors and the Delgado Collective are coordinating a food drive to benefit foodservice industry workers that were affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic and the Texas Winter Storm of February, which left many families across Texas without water or electricity for several days.
Food distribution will begin at 2:00 pm on Monday, March 15, 2021 at Salomé on Main at 1409 N Main Street, McAllen, Texas 78501. The event will continue while supplies last. Guests are asked to form a line—in their cars—along 15th Street where they will enter the Salomé on Main parking lot, receive their food box, and exit through Main Street.
Guests are required to meet the following criteria:
1) Bring proof of employment at a local restaurant, such as a recent paystub
2) Be financially affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic and recent Texas Winter Storm
3) Remain in their cars throughout the event to follow COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
“Our industry workers are always there for us when we need them, and now it is our responsibility to be there for them when they need us,” says Val LaMantia, Partner at L&F Distributors. “We donated $10,000 and this will get us at least 400 food boxes to distribute that day.”
With the generous donations received throughout the beginning of March, the Delgado Collective has procured food items from Grande Produce of the Rio Grande Valley and other local foodservice suppliers. Other sponsors joining the event include Austin Street Bar, 5x5 Brewing Company and Essentia Waters.
L&F Distributors is a family-owned beverage wholesaler headquartered in McAllen that represents all Anheuser-Busch brands and 164 craft breweries, wineries, distilleries and non-alcoholic beverage suppliers. Currently, they service 6,400 retail stores and 7,880 bars and restaurants throughout their service areas, which include 53 Texas counties.

Anheuser-Busch and L&F Distributors Donate Emergency Drinking Water to City of Corpus Christi and American Red Cross
Anheuser-Busch and L&F Distributors are providing 22 pallets- more than 8,600 cans- of emergency drinking water to local communities in Corpus Christi, in partnership with the City of Corpus Christi and the Red Cross. The delivery is in response to requests from the American Red Cross to aid Corpus communities impacted by the recent winter storms.
As safety is the foremost and primary concern, Anheuser-Busch and L&F Distributors are closely monitoring the winter storms and taking action to ensure colleagues in the region are safe.
The canned water arrived today in Corpus Christi, where the office of the City of Corpus Christi will work with the American Red Cross to distribute the water to those in need.
The water will be sourced from Anheuser-Busch’s brewery which periodically pauses beer production to can drinking water and be ready to help communities in times of disaster.
Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding tradition of providing emergency drinking water and supplies for disaster relief efforts in partnership with the American Red Cross – dating back to 1906. Since 1988, Anheuser-Busch and their wholesaler partners have provided more than 86 million cans of water to U.S. communities affected by natural disasters and other crises nationwide.

BUD LIGHT AND L&F DISTRIBUTORS SUPPORT KHALID BENEFIT CONCERT “A NIGHT FOR SUNCITY”
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.
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.

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 email@example.com. ...READ MORE
#PawTheClaw with White Claw this Summer
Great news for all you animal lovers out there! Our White Claw Spiked Seltzer team is partnering with local animal rescue centers in our L&F Distributors markets—Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, Corpus Christi and El Paso—to help our furry friends in the next two months.
Between July 15 and August 15, we will be donating $1 per case sold of White Claw to the Laredo Animal Protective Society1; the Yacqui Animal Rescue, Gulf Coast Humane Society and the Humane Society of El Paso2. This includes White Claw sales at convenience stores, grocery stores, restaurants and bars that sell White Claw during the next two months.
Whether you love puppies, kittens or a low-calorie, low-carb and refreshing seltzer with a kick of alcohol, White Claw is our top choice for a refreshing summer beverage and will probably be yours too if it’s not already! Be sure to pick up a variety pack or a single tall can next time you’re at HEB, Wal-Mart, Vista Supermarket or your local mom-and-pop shop. If you haven’t tried the new Mango flavor, you’re definitely missing out. I think we’ve been over this already, but—add a tropical twist to your summer with Mango! Mango, mango, mango. We can’t get enough.
To learn more about how our animal rescue center partners stretch out donations, please visit their websites at the links above or follow them on their social media pages below—and of course, don’t forget to follow our L&F pages too!

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. Our media partners play an integral role in helping us spread awareness of our community events and goodwill.

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!

After a series of interviews, the AB Senior Management selects a candidate to fill the position. It is a great honor to have an L&F Distributors candidate represent us as chairman!

Corpus Christi Shares the Love with Love Street
Karbach Brewing Company is no stranger to sharing and spreading some love and positivity around our L&F communities, especially during the holiday season when we all need to try a little harder to help those outside of our close circles of family and friends. We thought it would be a great idea to partner with food banks around our community in an effort to help them make a dent on hunger.
Starting Tuesday, November 20, Karbach will donate $1 to the Coastal Bend Food Bank of Corpus Christi for every case of Love Street Kolsch Style Blonde sold till the end of the year. Make sure you pick up a case at your local retailer or have yourself a well-deserved drink at participating bars and restaurants—all sales matter!
Help Karbach help our local food bank tackle hunger this holiday season and brighten up another person’s day. Every $1 that the Coastal Bend Food Bank earns can help feed one person for the day.
If you’re interested in being of extra help you can get involved by visiting the Coastal Bend Food Bank website at this link: coastalbendfoodbank.org/get-involved ...READ MORE
Stella Artois Helps End Hunger this Holiday Season
There’s no doubt that Stella Artois shines during the holiday season and they are no strangers to lending a helping hand to those who need us most during this time. Please help us make a positive impact in our communities and help put a dent in hunger this holiday season.
Starting on Tuesday, November 20, Stella Artois will donate $1 to the Feeding America™ food banks in our L&F communities for every case of Stella Artois sold till the end of this year. Be it 6-pk, 12-pk, glass or bottle, every case counts, so be sure you pick up a case at your local retailer or have yourself a well-deserved drink at participating bars and restaurants.
The three food banks are able to maximize the conversion of $1 as best as they can. The Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley can serve 5 meals for every $1. The South Texas Food Bank of Laredo is able to serve 10 meals for every $1. The El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank is able to serve 7 meals for every $1.

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.
