A decent tasting room that features all of Yards regular brews and Ales of the Revolution plus a few rotating options like a cask, seasonal, limited release and even a root beer. Overall about 10-12 options at a time, which is very good good for a non-brewpub. Flights can be had for either the regular or Revolution ales. I question the $5 a pint price, but am told that Yards does not want to undercut all of the bars in the area that carry their product. That is also why they only stay open until 7 and serve a handful of snack type items instead of being a fully functional brewpub. The food is good and will satisfy your hunger, but don't expect gastropub or old school bar food.

The atmosphere is hard to describe as it is a weathered, used and lived in industrial space filled with recycled and reclaimed decor. The bar itself is interesting as the top is an old bowling alley - high gloss and all. Their website gives a good overview of their mission to be green. Also, don't expect to go and catch a game, as they only have 1 TV which is sometimes on, sometimes off. The people who work their are fantastic but bar service does slow down at times.

The brew house itself is well kept, lots of open space. The 45 minute tours are very informational and are a much more personal experience than many other brewers in the area. They throw some fantastic small scale events as well as larger beer festivals that make use of the bar area and brew house - cant think of a better atmosphere for that.

While i wish this place would strive to provide the complete brewpub experience, but you cant fault them for doing what they want and continuing to produce good beer.

100% wind powered brewery. Very cool tasting room. Bar is made from recycled bowling lane wood. Tour is approx. 45 mins long with a few samples. Went on a Sunday and the kitchen wasn't open; had to get food from a food truck parked outside. Beers were decent.
