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.

During a recent weekend trip, I finally took an opportunity to visit this wonderful brewery. Located on Delaware Avenue, and near Fishtown with its' many liquid pleasure houses, Yards Brewery, whether for the tour or the Tasting Room, is a Philadelphia must-see. I stopped by the Tasting Room (on my way to the aforemention Fishtown); there was a bustling atmosphere around the circular bar area. The bar was equipped with an I-Pad, where one could check out the many styles available or just go onto their website. The room is of moderate size with the typical industrial décor, high brick walls adorned with Yards swag. To the right, adjacent to the bar, and behind the glass, is the brewery. Look inside for Yards One, the original brick system. Tours are frequent and very popular.
Yards offers their Basic Signature beers on tap along with "Ales of the Revolution," which included the wonderful George Washington Tavern Porter. The special was Rye IPA for $5.00 a pint. Food is served; however, I did not partake. Should you wish to avoid a DWI, the brewery is accessible to public transit: Bus 25 or the Spring Garden subway station.
Honestly, this is one of the best tasting rooms I've ever visited.
