quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | $$$

I just visited the Beer Yard for the first time today. The selection was great. I requested a price check via their online site, which is very thorough by the way, and received a response same day. With an offer to hold something for me if I was interested. Their employees were helpful and considerate. I ran into another BA member in the store who was more than happy to help me with a couple of tough decisions. In the end, I ended up spending a bit more than I wanted, but I got a number of great drinkable beers. I will most certainly be returning.

I was looking for a case of Founders Backwoods last year after most was not to be found. I sent an email to Matt and he promptly emailed me back and said he would be on the lookout. Somehow he got a case for me and I was all set. Fast forward to last week when I get an email again from Matt saying that they just got 2013 Backwoods in stock. I headed over and there was a case waiting for me. I didn't have to call or email, they actually gave me a heads up. Just wanted to give huge kudos to The Beer Yard for great customer service.

vibe: 2.75 | quality: 4 | service: 4.75 | selection: 4.5 | $$

last visited on 10/26/13.

somewhat tricky entrance (enter through a Starbucks) but ample parking around the small warehouse.

inside, cases stacked 4-10 feet high. there seems to be little organization to the place. because of this, I don't necessarily go in to browse, however you can. nothing is clearly marked so be prepared to ask questions. the staff working there expects it.

what I do whenever I go in there is come with a list of what I had in mind and chat with the dudes who work there. bunch of knowledgeable people who know what they have and provide plenty of suggestions. its difficult to go in there without an agenda because of the sporadic nature of the place so know what you're looking for and the type of style you want to walk out with. the website can help.

if you're looking for high demand and rare stuff, there are waiting lists.

overall, difficult to navigate but I don't care about that when the selection and staff are above average.
