Their newest video spotlights TreePhilly, a program of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, which seeks to increase the city’s tree canopy to 30% coverage by 2025. As part of the initiative, Yards and TreePhilly are partnering for the third year running to give Philadelphians free trees and beers on Arbrew Day, April 29th.
A little history: In 2014, Arbrew Day kickstarted, giving away 50 trees to eager adopters and in 2015, that number rose to 100! Even better, if pop by to adopt a tree (available at a first-come, first-serve basis), you’ll score a pint on Yards and a commemorative tee shirt that reads: “Drink Beers. Plant Trees.”
So, if you want to add to the city’s population of trees, have space in your yard and are eager to adopt a tree on the house from Yards and TreePhilly, help ’em make 2016 the most successful year yet. On April 29, from 5–7 p.m., visit one of the below bars to scout out a tree that’s the right fit for you.
Each bar will have 8–12 yard trees to choose from and staff onsite to help choose the best fit for one’s yard. Trees are in easy-to-carry containers and range in height from 2-6 feet.
But, wait … it gets better! As a special “thank you” to the bars acting as sites for Arbrew Day, Yards is pre-releasing their Cape of Good Hope Double IPA exclusively at the bars only. The beer will begin to be distributed elsewhere on May 1. Those who cannot plant a tree—but want to show support—will have the chance to win glassware and Yards Bee Garden seed packets throughout the event.
Arbrew Day continues Yards’ efforts with their 360 ̊ Brew Unto Others Brand Campaign, which launched Thanksgiving Week 2015. The Yards Good Fight Program, which is a part of the 360 ̊ Brew Unto Others Brand Campaign, focuses specifically on giving back to the people and organizations making their backyard a better place to live and work.
