If we were a gambling manwe would probably put our savings behind the Houston Astros to win the World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Saint Arnold, the oldest craft brewery in Texas, and Yards Brewing in Philadelphia have joined the fray with its own challenge—for everyone’s enjoyment, but also for charity.

If the Astros win, the Yards team will have to take a picture drinking a Saint Arnold beer while wearing St. Arnold merchandise and waving the Astros flag. If the Phillies win, the Saint Arnold crew will be posing with, you guessed it, a Yards beer while wearing Yards merchandise and waving a Phillies flag.

The owners of the two breweries know each other and both opened their taprooms in 1994. Lennie Ambrose, Saint Arnold’s director of marketing, said the folks at Yards approached them with the proposal of “a little action to do- interesting”.

“We’ve done a lot of these brewery bets over the years, but this is the first time against a Philly brewery,” Ambrose said. “Yards is definitely a ‘Saint Arnold of Philly’ kind of brewery, so it definitely makes sense and it’s always fun to connect like that.”

Breweries in Houston and Philly are also raising money for charity during World Series games. Saint Arnold donates $1 for every pint of H-Town Pils to Kids Meals Houston, and Yards Brewing donates $1 from Philly Standard sales to the Ronald McDonald House.

In a social media post announcing the challenge, Saint Arnold said its Art Car IPA is a good beer for the Yards team. “Drink the pain.”
