It could have been influenced by the fact that I was hot and tired... but the Bourbon Infused Porter they had on tap rocked my world! Ice cold and perfectly... More

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

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 !

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
