Yards Brewing Co. is betting big on the Eagles winning Super Bowl LII.
The Philly brewery has placed a wager with the Boston-based Harpoon Brewery. The brewery with the losing team must pour the winning brewery’s beer in their taproom for an entire day and staff will be required to wear the opponent’s gear.
"The last time we moved our brewery, the Phillies won the World Series, and we handed out free Philly Pale Ale to fans celebrating in the streets. Now, after once again opening a new facility, we are hoping some of that Yards good luck will rub off on our high-flying NFC champs. Let’s go Birds!” said Yards founder and brewmaster Tom Kehoe.
Yards will also be giving back to the community through Super Bowl Sunday. The brewery will donate $1 from each pint of Philly Pale Ale sold in their taproom to Prevention Point, an organization working to solve the opioid crisis in Philadelphia, and $10 from every keg of Philly Pale Ale sold in the Philadelphia region through Feb. 4.
Harpoon Brewery will also give back in Boston. A portion of the proceeds from one of their flagship beers will be donated to a charity of their choosing.
