Yards Brewing Company is a craft brewery with a brand-new taproom serving up 20 taps of different Yards beers to choose from. Boasting a menu with items like a miso ramen to a meatball parm sandwich, you'll be sure to find a meal to compliment your choice of ale.
With a signature beer series that showcases seven types of beer, these brews make up the perfect variety pack. Making up the Signature Variety at Yards are Philly's hometown lager known as "Loyal Lager," the traditional citrusy "Philadelphia Pale Ale," the toasty caramel "Brawler," the American IPA "Our Signature IPA," the coffee and chocolate accented "Love Stout," the subtly spicy "Extra Special Ale," and the rosé of beer known as "PYNK."
Yards Brewing Company creates beers on tap and in a can while also putting their own creative spin on their brews. With a few different varieties of beer, Yards has become recognizable for their quirkiness. Take the Ales of the Revolution Variety, for instance. An homage to Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin, Yards has concocted brews with these Founding Fathers in mind. Each of these revolutionary thinkers had their own beer recipes, which Yards has recreated in the form of the Revolutionary Series: Jefferson's Golden Ale, Washington's Porter, and Poor Richard's Spruce Ale. Look out for the hints of molasses, spruce tips, and honey in these brews!
