We recently visited Philly and decided to check out this Brewery. The beer was quite good (we each ordered different beers according to our personal tastes), but the food was just ordinary. The atmosphere was lively and fun and definitely geared toward the younger set...More

Barely made it past the door and we had to show our IDs, which we did. We weren't allowed entrance (despite being 29 and my girlfriend 25) because we didn't have 'our international passports'. Suddenly an ID wasn't the issue anymore. Complete BS... A good...More

Hi Bert, So sorry this was your experience at Yards. We unfortunately are unable to accept international drivers licenses as an acceptable form of ID by the state. I wish I was able to talk to you to try to address this better, and we...More

Brewery Tour was awesome - our tour guide was outstanding. Well worth the time and for $10 you get a pint and a small gift. Family friendly environment in the taproom. Lots of seating and great food selection.

Attended a business event. About 50 people got violently ill afterwards. The Philly health inspection of this place afterwards was awful. Terrible hygiene and food storage. You have been warned!!!

Went to try the beer and have dinner with family during a weekend trio to Philly. Liked the Love Chocolate Stout beer a lot! Food was great. Kids like their dinners too. Mussels were so good! Would go back!

What to do on a rainy day in Philly? Check out the Yards Brewing Company for lunch/tour! The 5-month-old facility is fascinating. Our tour guide, Mike, did not disappoint. He was entertaining and informative. I wasn't aware of the dedication to recreating historic brews. We...More
