We stopped in at Yards on a weekday afternoon, delighted to find a space in Yards free lot across the street, There were a a number of people around the bar, but many tables open. We shared all three flights - historic - inspired by 18th century colonial recipes including spruce, their signature, and their seasonal and small batch sampler.... More

My wife and I stopped in there one day on a chilly afternoon and had them pull a couple of their famous beers for us. They were out of this world but I've always been a big fan of everything yards has put in a bottle. They had a special sandwich on the menu that day which was a mushroom... More

Came to Yards Brewing Company for my first brewery experience after seeing all of the great reviews on Tripadvisor. Yards was packed at 2:00 PM on a Saturday afternoon. I was greeted with a porter sample and two colored poker chips for a 3 PM tour. I ordered a sampler selection of four beers and my favorites included the the... More

Yards has some of the best beers in Philadelphia. Their establishment is always busy, where you can sit at the bar, play shuffleboard, or play pool too. Food trucks are on location which is a great option! They offer free tours with free samples of their beers. great place to hang out with a great environment. Highly recommended !

This was a highlight of my visit to Philly. Michael was a great tour guide for us and the experience from start to finish was fun, insightful, and plenty of drinking. Just an overall great time. You must make the quick walk to this river side brewery. They are a great company with great beers (try the historical beers for... More

Met up with some out of town friends. This place is great... take the tour, try some beers, and take home a growler. On the weekends, the kitchen is closed but they have food trucks outside. I wish I remembered the name of the food truck that was there Sunday 10/19/14 because the food was awesome.

Came here for some great beer, and got handed a free sample as soon as I walked through the door. Wow was that cool! It was a very boisterous, college type atmosphere, which is usually not my style, but it worked. The staff was super friendly. In fact we got comped a couple beers for helping with a fella from...
