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!

Due to public health concerns regarding COVID-19, tours have been suspended until further notice. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Take a tour

The Yards brewery tour gives thirsty guests a behind-the-scenes look at how Philly’s Beer is made. You and your friends will learn about the brewing process and hear the Story of Yards, with plenty of comedy along the way. Please book your tour in advance and get more information below. See you in the brew house!

Tour details

Yards Brewing Company Tours begin with an up close and personal look at the production of our award-winning ales from the brewhouse to the bottling line, and you’ll taste some samples along the way.

Guided tours are available 7 days a week, and last approximately 40 minutes. Each tour is limited to 25 guests and you must be 21+ years of age with a valid, unexpired ID.

For your safety, NO OPEN-TOED SHOES ARE ALLOWED. That includes anything from your favorite flip-flops to $1325 Manolo “Osaka” sandals. If you forget your closed toe shoes, we have a few highly embarrassing and uncomfortable loaner pairs.

Please note, you may stand for extended periods and be exposed to extreme heat or cold. The tour is entirely handicapped accessible. Tours are $10 per person and include a beer sample, a full “walk-about” beer, and a souvenir.
