Great time, went on a Saturday and the place was hopping. Sampled all the Yards I wanted and the tour is FREE and very informative. You can get rare selections from Yards that aren't sold in most stores. The beer was flowing, overall well worth the trip. Will definitely be going back.

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.

A: It used to be an abandoned warehouse and still has the feel to it (in a good way). You can see the brewery from the tasting room which is really cool.
Q: They have very good beers and I heard the food was very good but I didn't try any.
Ser: The service is not better anywhere else. The bartender was very quick and very polite.
Sel: They had 10 beers on tap, all Yards beers. There were a lot of similarities between the beers thought.
V: The beer is pretty cheap especially because it is very good.
