Overview
More
Yards Brewing Company has been proudly brewing in the City of Brotherly Love since 1994. We’ve grown from a garage-sized operation in the Manayunk section of Philly to Roxborough, Kensington, Northern Liberties, and now to our newest location - a 70,000 square foot brewery and taproom - at 500 Spring Garden Street. Philadelphia Pale Ale and Brawler, both nationally recognized ales, lead a balanced portfolio of quality, handcrafted beers including eight year-round offerings and several seasonal and limited releases. Founder, Tom Kehoe, and the Yards Crew share a commitment to supporting the good people and organizations making their backyard a better place to live and work. Here at Yards, it's always been about working hard, having fun and giving back. The Brew Unto Others motto reflects our commitment to quality, community and sustainability. It's also a call-to-action. We encourage you to get together, to enjoy our beer, each other's company and to Brew Unto Others every day.

Popped in to Yards Brewing Co. They had an awesome double IPA and the staff was friendly. They had about 20+ beers on draft so I’m sure there is something to everyone’s taste that lives craft beer.

Yards is my favorite Philadelphia brewing company - so I may be biased in this review. You can never go wrong with their Tavern series - Tavern Porter, Tavern Spruce, and Tavern Ale. Those are always my go-to beers! I've only been to their new...More

Beautiful new facility, crowded on a rainy February afternoon with a line to get in at some point. Good beers but, ugh, that food! Sausages were inedible and the brisket sandwich was fatty and gross. Go, have a couple of beers and find somewhere else...More

We came here hoping for a tour, but brewery was under construction. Hung out in the restaurant area with two beer flights. Decent, although I think Yards is a bit on the pedestrian side. Tavern Spruce and Cape of Good Hope Best for my palette....More

We were very unimpressed with the whole experience. First you cannot pick your own beer flight. Second the food was terrible and some of the food seemed to be possibly reheated from the day before. The beer wasn't anything different from a year ago when...More

We are brewery enthusiasts and were so excited to try Yards. We were surprised to find a line to get in at 7:30 on a Friday night. We expected a relaxed, brewery scene, but found Yards to be more of a restaurant. You have to...More

This brewpub is bright and friendly. Seating is communal at upscale picnic tables - like a beerhall. Don't expect to have a quiet conversation! I recorded the noise level at over 90 decibels! There is a pricey selection of apparel and souvenirs for out-of-towners. Several...More

Thanks for visiting and taking the time to review! We do have off-street parking behind our building. The lot is accessible from 5th Street. Hope you make it back in the new year once we start tours at the new brewery. Cheers! -Gina at Yards
