First Day of Summer + Friday = Union-Made Celebration

This Summer, you have a ton of choices when it comes to beer and wine choices that are made in America by union labor. Here in Pennsylvania, shopping at your local Wine and Spirits stores also supports your UFCW brothers and sisters!

You can also take the opportunity to spend time with friends and family by firing up the grill and cooking out with union-made snacks and staples!

Think about adding these to your next gathering: Ball Park Hot Dogs, Hebrew National Hot Dogs, Gianelli sausages, Sara Lee Buns, French’s mustard, Heinz Ketchup, Lay’s brand chips, Good Humor ice cream, Pepsi and Barq’s root beer.

Listed beers are brewed by Machinists (IAM), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), UAW, Operating Engineers (IUOE), IUE-CWA and Teamsters members.
