Yards Bewing Company

Have you ever been to our Real Ale Invitational?

Every year, we bring the best cask ales from across the country (and the pond) to Yards for your tasting pleasure.

Legend has it that beverage writer and Philly beer scene veteran, Lew Bryson, came by the brewery for an interview with Tom during hurricane force winds.

While Tom was going on and on about the latest and greatest features of the new brewery, the storm blew out every single window right there in front of them. Thankfully, no person, and no beer, was hurt.

Did you know that we offer free brewery tours and beer samples every weekend?

Stop by between 12 and 4pm to see how we make what Philly drinks!

The first bottling run at 901 N. Delaware happened on October 30, 2008.

Yards employees handed those very bottles of ESA out to thirsty parade goers the next day during the Phillies' World Series Championship Parade. Go Phils!

You don't have to go far to get away this summer.

Get together with some friends and have a beer and a bite to eat outside in the shade of our towering steel brewing tanks. While you're here, go on a tour to see for yourself how Yards beers are brewed, bottled, canned, and kegged for the good people of Philadelphia and beyond.
