tailgate with honor
OUR STORY BEGINS
IN A SMALL TOWN
409 Tailgate Club was started by us, Andrew and Jeremy, because we love Penn State football, tailgating, and barbecue. In addition to simply being “tailgaters," we also run a barbecue catering company. From charcoal grilled chicken wings to wood smoked meats, we pride ourselves in serving the best barbecue in Happy Valley! Like so many others that grew up in Pennsylvania, we bleed blue and white. We attended our first football games as kids in the 70’s, became experienced tailgaters by the 80’s, and hosted our own tailgate parties as Penn State students in the 90’s. Over the years, we have continued to tailgate outside Beaver Stadium as season ticket holders. We can’t tell you how many beers we have drank, or how many burgers we have eaten while perfecting our skills, but we can tell you that we throw a mean tailgate!
serving only the best meats
As pitmasters and tailgaters, we believe that high quality barbecue starts with high quality meats. As a couple of dudes that are Pennsylvania born and bred, we also believe in supporting our local farms and businesses. 409 Tailgate Club sources only the best and freshest meats from farms in Central Pennsylvania.
409 Tailgate Sauces are the first-ever, small batch BBQ sauces created for Penn State tailgaters and BBQ enthusiasts. We believe a tailgate should have a variety of foods, so a tailgate sauce must go well with everything (and our sauces do exactly that). Hell, we’ve seen people drink them straight out of the bottle! Whether you're smoking meats at your house, or grilling outside Beaver Stadium, 409 Tailgate Sauce is sure to kick your food up a notch.
