Yard's Brewery, TimBar and Thomas Servello. Ronald McDonald House
TimBar Packaging & Display has been an active member of the Craft Brewer’s Association since 2009. When it was announced BrewExpo would take place in Philadelphia in 2016, TimBar knew its booth had to be extra special. TimBar’s design team challenged itself to create a life size replica of the Liberty Bell to be the focal point of TimBar’s booth at the event. They not only met the challenge, they exceeded it. The corrugated Liberty Bell was done tremendously and wasn’t only a focal point of TimBar’s booth, it became thetalk of the show with hundreds of people stopping each day to snap photos and chat about it.
So once the tradeshow is over, what is one to do with 3,126 square feet of corrugated board weighting 123.5 pounds that took 181 manhours to turn into an exquisite replica of a piece of Americana? You give it to your friends who happen to have an outstanding brewery in Philadelphia featuring beer recreations based on the original recipes of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Ben Franklin. But the Love (Stout) doesn’t stop there! Both Yard’s and TimBar believe in supporting and giving back to their local communities so the price for the corrugated Liberty Bell was a donation to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.
The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children with programs that include two Ronald McDonald Houses, two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, a Hospitality Kiosk at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children and a Ronald McDonald Camp.

On June 13, 2016, representatives from Yard’s Brewery and TimBar Packaging & Display met to present a donation to the Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia in front of the corrugated Liberty Bell now housed at Yard’s Brewery in Philadelphia. So if you’d like to see the corrugated Liberty Bell for yourself and enjoy some great beer, please visit Yard’s Tasting Room and take the Brewery Tour.
