This was the third time I've been to the tasting room at Yards. Got there a little after noon and there were already 4 other patrons inside. Since it was a working day I saw some cleaning being done on some of the tanks as well as the bottling line moving. The whole place had the awesome smell of beer being brewed.
We brought with us a sample of some homebrew since we were told by them last time that it if you homebrew bring it when you visit a brewery. I highly recommend doing this as the staff was excited to try it and offered critiques and compliments.
Along with the Ales of the Revolution and the yearly Yards offerings on tap they also had Trubble de Yards, Love Stout and a Bourbon Barrel George Washington Porter. The food is not your standard bar food but instead some high quality soups and grilled cheese sandwiches. For desert they also have fudge and Tasty-cakes.
The tasting room is very spacious with a large clean-looking bar with plenty of seats. There are a few booths as you walk in and tables scattered throughout also provide adequate seating. As the day grew later more patrons showed up perhaps making a little bit much for the staff to keep up with.
Overall the Yards tasting room is one of the best around to grab a few pints and have some good food and conversation with the guys who make it. I highly recommend taking one of their tours on a Saturday and if you can go for lunch on a weekday to get a little more personal relaxed experience.
