Nonprofit RIP Medical Debt and Melvin Brewing are “Raising a Glass” to Abolish More Than $30 Million of Medical Debt in 10 States

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- It may be unorthodox for a nonprofit to encourage people to enjoy a draft or two by teaming up with an award-winning brewery, but RIP Medical Debt (RIP) and Melvin Brewing aren’t your run of the mill organizations.

The duo has been working on this project for almost a year and have joined forces to create a new beer, “Your IPA,” with 100% of proceeds from kegs sold from a special donated batch in August & Sept of 2018 going directly to RIP to relieve people of unpaid and unpayable medical debt.

Medical debt relief will be centered in Melvin’s 10 markets: Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania, New York, California and Massachusetts. The amount of debt forgiven will be determined by how much beer is sold by bars in each state – setting the stage for an epic philanthropic competition.
