Really good food, even when there isn't a food truck here. And it goes without saying the beer is top notch.

Been wanting to visit for several years, finally did with my son who live in Philly. Got here on a cool, drizzly day and went in just as the place was becoming occupied to capacity, long line for the rest of the afternoon outside. Get here early or be prepared to wait. The beer selection is superlative and the tour... More

We stumbled into this place and it was one of the highlights of our trips. We had a short wait outside as the place was filled to capacity. Considering it was at about 3:00 in the afternoon, that's saying something! We started out with a couple of "flights", generous samples of their wares comprised of 4 small glasses per flight....

The only thing that would make this place better is if they stayed open after 6.30 pm. That is right last call is 6.30 pm. Doesn't matter if it is packed with people or if hey have a private party of not, they are done at 6.30. The loss of revenue has to be off the chart. Any the service... More

We came here for a stop before heading back to the hotel. It was nice and they have a decent selection of beers. My husband got a Revolutionary Flight, which he very much enjoyed. It was a nice place to relax. They also serve food, but we didn't order any.

My husband (a history nut) and I started here on this birthday-brewery-extravaganza. He had a flight and the beers were good, but the personality of the bar was lacking. Its the type of place you go with a group of people who you plan to interact with, not the place where you go to hang out and talk with the... More

I went with a group of people on a Sunday afternoon for a tour, and we got a sample right upon checking in - nice! The tours are free and run every half hour or so. You also get a couple of tastings on the tour, which is awesome. Our tour guide, Mike, was hands-down the best brewery tour guide... More

Went specifically to try a friends' beer - Punter. Cool vibe. Would be a nice place to relax if you enjoy trying some different beers.

The Yards Brewing Company produces a very good variety of ales. My wife and two grown children stopped by this past Saturday afternoon and sampled several fine ales and participated in a tour of the brewing facility. The tour guide was very knowledgeable in the history of the company and the brewing process, and arcane ( and even bizarre) peculiarities... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in on a Saturday. We got there a little early before they opened and there was a line waiting to get in. We asked if there was a special event or beer release but apparently it was just a typical Saturday. Regardless, we got in very quickly once they opened. It's a very cool interior.... More
