Born in 1994 in a garage in Manayunk and operated under the leadership of Tom Kehoe, a pivotal figure in the Philly beer scene, Yards is dedicated to the tenets of community and sustainability. In late 2017, the iconic operation relocated to a massive 70,000-square-foot, 100,000-barrel-capacity brewery and taproom in Northern Liberties. Guests can stop in for flights off of the 20-tap draught line and beer-friendly fare from chef Jim Burke. Yards’ signature beers are all over the menu, including mustard accompanying a Bavarian pretzel, Philly Pale chicken with fried potatoes and greens, and a dessert float featuring Love Stout.
