So happy we stopped here. Maybe a 2 minute drive from the Old City area. No parking lot, but parking on the street. There is a casino down the block with an open lot, but tons of signs warning against parking there.
Went in early on a Friday. My wife and 2 year old were with me. Cool vide to the place. Warehouse feel, but clean. Pool table and shuffleboard. A bunch of seats and a decent sized bar. People seemed cool, no one complained as my daughter played shuffleboard.
On to the beer. Started with their standard sampler, which included the excellent Brawler and ESA. Both good quality session like beers.
From there, had to try to bourbon aged GW Porter. Strong, but subtle. Not crazy alcohol flavor and rather smooth. Highly drinkable. Afterwards, had a pint of the Franklin Spruce Ale. Another unique and quality offering.
Loved it there. Wish we could have stayed longer. Plenty of other beers, Love Stout and the rest of Founding Father Ales. Wish I had a chance to sample the scotch ale as well.
Plenty of items to buy, from shirts to signs to pint glasses. I highly recommend making a stop.

I've been to the Yard's tasting room a few times now. They have basically all of their standard beers on tap (and a few on cask) including one or two specialties/seasonals. The decor is pretty interesting, rustic meets contemporary, highly inspired by the various beers as well as Philadelphia's history/Founding Fathers.
The drafts are reasonably priced (freshly squeezed of course) and delicious. 64oz growlers are available for five dollars. There are two different types of growler pours; 'Signature' and 'Revolutionary' for $10 and $12 respectively. I think it's a pretty good deal and always remember to bring my growler for a visit.
They offer tours on weekends about every half hour between noon and 4. Guides are knowledgeable and have a sense of humor. A few 4oz pours are offered for sampling during the tour.
The tasting room does not offer food, but on Saturdays a rotating selection of food trucks park out front and always smell delicious.
Overall, I really like their offerings and try to stop by whenever I can.
