“When we were thinking about what would make sense for this collaboration, I thought of a purl right away. It’s not flashy. It’s not another in-your-face IPA. Purl is the working man’s beer. It symbolizes hard work – the kind of hard work that builds strong communities, just like Barwin’s foundation has been doing right here in Philly,” said Yards founder Tom Kehoe.

“For many years, we’ve been doing the best we can to give back to the good people of Philly through charitable beer donations and financial contributions. Through our Good Fight program, we hope to raise significant awareness and support for the people and organizations in our community making a real difference in the lives of Philadelphians,” said Yards CEO Trevor Prichett.
