I stopped at Yard's on Monday when "BeerAdvocate Preemptively 'did' Philly."
This was my first time at Yard's. I was excited to see what it was like.
The location is wide open, but planned well. The brewing area is displayed just behind the bar through glass doors. After being completely awestruck, I sat back an got comfortable.
Yard's beers are all on tap. There is a list of the beer available just next to the bar area on a chalk board. You can order a "small" or a pint. Pints cost money, smalls are for sampling and are on the house. Taste a few and order a pint of what you like the most. The beer is excellent and ridiculously fresh.
Also, give a look at the food menu also located on the chalk board. I gave the pepper pot soup a go and absolutely loved it.
Everything was priced well so that you could taste, drink, and eat as you please instead of rack up some bill that you don't want to pay. That's what Yard's seemed to be all about; making their customer happy instead of ripping their wallet away, emptying it, and taking off. The staff was kind, the head brewer (Tom Kehoe) was on site, the guys were open to showing guests around, and would chat it up without making anyone feel rushed. Tom was kind and was talking to us for about a half an hour about his ideas, goals, and how he felt about the local beer scene. Steve (head of operations) was hanging out amongst the guests, showed us around town, and came out to dinner with us later on.
Overall, a great experience. The guys at Yard's are humble people. I will go back with friends, will feel comfortable and a part of the family, and will recommend Yard's brewery as a perfect place for an on the go meal accompanied by some wicked beer.

Yards is a great beer spot ESPICIALLY for the younger guys. Only stopped by for a flight but the place was packed at 2 on a Saturday afternoon. And the tours were sold out until 5 so couldn't stay for one.
Staff was very friendly and fast. Games, food and a great beer selection await you at Yards.
