Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 09:58 am

Hall of Famer Robin Yount has expanded distribution of his signature brand, Robinade Old School Lemonade and Limeade, in the Milwaukee area.  The new distribution agreement with Beer Capitol Distributing and Beer Capitol Distributing – Lake Country will bring the all-star beverage to restaurants, taverns, liquor and convenience stores in addition to grocery stores where the product is currently sold.  A portion of all Robinade sales support Wisconsin children’s charities, including the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).
"The response to Robinade from our friends in the Milwaukee area has been tremendous," said Yount.  "Teaming up with Beer Capitol will allow us to expand our distribution so our fans can enjoy our old school lemonade and limeade in more locations.  We hope that knowing we are supporting Wisconsin children’s charities makes the experience even sweeter."
Yount has been a long-time advocate for Wisconsin’s children and their families through his association with the MACC Fund and many other local charities.  This business venture brings together America’s favorite beverage with America’s favorite pastime, just in time for summer and the Brewers season.
