I love this place! They have a great selection and I never leave disappointed. Yes, the beer is stacked up high and sometimes it takes a bit of browsing to find what you want, but that's part of why I like it. Their prices are pretty good as well, and if a case isn't labeled you can just ask someone who works there to look up a price. Most of the cases are labeled anyway so that's not too much of a problem. The staff is knowledgable and have answered any questions I have with courtesy. I can also rely on them to give me their honest opinion about a beer, good or bad. They are conveniently located so stopping by is easy on my way home from work. They also have a good variety of glassware. All in all it's one of my favorite beer distributors.

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.

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.
