This is not your typical beer run.

D.G. Yuengling & Son, America’s oldest brewery based in Pottsville, Pa., has partnered with CK Running to host the Yuengling Gold Rush 5K Walk and Run at 9 a.m. on Sunday.

A portion of the proceeds benefit Team Red, White & Blue, to support its mission to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.

The event is expected to attract 600 people who will travel through a scenic route around Pittsburgh’s North Shore, including a portion of Three Rivers Heritage Trail, the release said.

Participants will receive a T-shirt, one Yuengling Golden Pilsner, a koozie and admission to a post-race party with beer, food and live music at Stage AE.

Yuengling Golden Pilsner is the brewery’s first new year-round product in 18 years, and the first created by Yuengling’s sixth generation family members

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
