Introducing Yards’ MTWB IPA!

Yards Brewing Company and Make the World Better Foundation have joined forces for the second year in a row to launch a new limited-edition beer from Yards’ First Draft series, Make the World Better IPA. A portion of all Make the World Better IPA proceeds will benefit the Foundation. 

“It has always been a critical part of Yards’ mission to collaborate with local philanthropies who work hard to make their backyard a better place to live and work,” said Trevor Prichett, CEO of Yards Brewing Company. “We are proud to again partner with Connor Barwin and his Make the World Better Foundation on this special edition IPA. Their mission, vision, and impact on Philadelphia is a seamless fit with our company values.”  

On Friday, November 1, Yards and MTWB celebrated the beer’s launch alongside Connor Barwin and the city of Philadelphia with a special event at its state-of-the-art brewery and taproom. Inspired by MTWB’s latest work, Yards will transform their warehouse into an indoor playground to allow attendees to visualize how the funds raised from the MTWB IPA will benefit the revitalization of neighborhood parks.

“Philadelphia holds a special place in my heart. Since coming here in 2013, I’ve made it my mission to bring people together to make the world – and this city – better than how we found it, and Yards has played a big role in that,” said Connor Barwin, Founder and Board President of Make the World Better Foundation. “Our first partnership was a great start, and I’m eager to see how Philly continues to support its city with Yards’ new, limited-edition Make the World Better IPA. With a long-standing history and a brand deeply rooted in Philadelphia, only Yards can bring to life a craft brew that inspires Philly goodwill like MTWB.” 

Make the World Better IPA will be available at Yards’ taproom at the corner of 5th and Spring Garden Streets and at the following locations:
