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...

We hosted a birthday party at Yard's after hours (which at Yard's starts at 7:30 pm) on a Saturday night. For a reasonable fee, you can rent the entire brewery for three hours, and get a flat fee all-you-care-to-drink package for your guests, along with a private (and hilarious) tour of the beer-making magic. The beer is varied and wonderful... More

Definitely take the tour! The staff is very knowledgable and you get to taste several beers. The food is also very good and the atmosphere is great if you're visiting with friends or as a couple!

Ok, so I'm sure my experience was unique, but we had set out to visit a brewery on my trip to Philadelphia. When we walked into Yards, the hostess told us that they were celebrating the owner's birthday today and that we were walking into a party for him, but that we were welcome to join the part. Oh, and... More

My husband and I were visiting Philadelphia and was told by a local bartender to make sure we check out Yards Brewing while we were there. We went in around 1:00 and stayed for a few hours. With 12 beers on tap we ended up doing two flights - the Signature and Revolutionary so we'd each be able to try... More

Recently we were at this establishment for a funeral luncheon. It was on the small side for the amount of people we had, but the staff could not have done a better job. They always smiled, had something nice to say to us, removed our plates without us asking them to, and replenished our stock all with smiles. It was... More

We stopped at Flying Fish on our way into town, so we stopped at Yards on our way out. Probably the nicest tasting room I have seen so far, with plenty of room and a nice bar. They are very sample happy and you get to try a lot of things for free. The tour was very informative, but there... More

Last time when in Philly we got a chance to go to Yards well we tried almost all there beer they had might have missed a few. It was just a great place to hang out play some pool and have great beer. I will and would recommend this place to everyone looking to just relax and hang out.

I'm more of a food person than an alcohol person, but we were hosting friends in the city so we went here. Parking is difficult- some mean lady in a minivan stole our street parking spot when we pulled forward to back into it...so that was awkward. Once inside, it was HOPPIN. very crowded, there's a pool table that we... More
