Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe all others pale in comparison to this one. Crisp and hoppy, Philadelphia Pale Ale is brewed with Pilsner malt and American hops, which impart a surprising citrus aroma.

One of the best I've had in me man cave tap. Went to Baltimore beer week and only fond 1 (a Weiss) better. Never, never has there been a beer like that! Have a Flying Fish Octerberfish clogging up the lines now. Will be sure to get this after I purge the fish. Or perhaps a Long Trail, Brooklyn. Update: ordered 1/2 barrel Yards PPA 9.26.13, should be as good as the 1/6 I had before the (still working on) fish. At $165 +tax (1/2) and $75 + for 1/6 it is a bit up there, but as me sailing friends tell me "you only live once". Is that true?
