How it all began

Back in the late '80s, two college buds Tom and Jon, decided to brew some beer for their friends. Whether it was natural talent or the endless supply of suds, people liked what they tasted and wanted more. They didn't know it at the time, but this was the beginning of what was to become Yards Brewing Company.

Where we are now

Yards has been brewing Philly's beer since 1994. We’ve grown from a garage-sized operation in Manayunk all the way up to our current location at 500 Spring Garden Street in Northern Liberties. And we couldn't have done it without your support through the years. Our beers always have and always will be brewed, bottled, kegged, and canned for the hard working people of Philadelphia and beyond.

Why we do it

Our founder, Tom Kehoe, and the Yards Crew share a commitment to supporting the good people and organizations making our backyard a better place to live and work. Here at Yards, it's always been about working hard, having fun, and giving back. Our Brew Unto Others motto reflects our commitment to quality, community, and sustainability. It's also a call-to-action. We encourage you to get together, to enjoy our beer, each other's company, and to Brew Unto Others every day.
