Last time I stopped by there were two flights (4 beers each) to choose from, tried both, and both were fantastic. Good beer selection, not every beer is a hit, but there are quite a few historical brews that make day drinking feel patriotic! My favorite Yards brews are the Brawler, Philly Pale, and Love Stout. The food is a bit too far out their for my liking, menu items include things like venison chili and foie gres, so I'd personally eat before I go. Looking forward to catching a brew tour at Yards in the future.

A really great brewery to visit. Tour was fun and really gave a great sense of the brewery. The crowd and staff were friendly. Huge selection of different types of beer and a good food truck outside with great comfort food. Never had it but during the week yards has a limited but what sounds like an appealing menu.when in Philly it is a must place to visit

Cool joint. Lots a people drinkin and music blasting, loud but in a fun way. 13 beers on the tap. Food is from a food truck. In a hip part of Philly on the old Delaware Ave. (people will know what I mean).

Arrived at 4pm on a Saturday to pregame before a concert at Festival Pier. There's a parking lot outside but I managed to snag street parking opposite the brewery. A few tables in a little grassy area across the street were occupied by people drinking in "to-go" cups and there were metal Yards bottle openers on the wooden fence posts! We were greeted at the door by staff who poured us a taste of Saison upon entry. It was fairly crowded and loud inside but my friend and I managed to saddle up to seats at the long, horseshoe shaped bar. Some TVs near the bar, but they were easy to ignore. Their entire line of brews were available on-tap along with a couple of one-offs. I had a Koelsch, Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale, and an Extra Special Ale (ESA). All fresh and delicious. Bartenders were friendly and attentive. I'd go back anytime.

One of the Philly classics, right down by the riverfront. Fairly big and roomy, but they close at 7pm, so get their early. Six mainstays a few rotating taps. Decent selection of pub grub as well.

Stopped in here with my friend for his birthday (first stop of many that night). We got in line and ordered a few rounds. The place was packed so we ordered 2 beers at a time just so we wouldn't need to get back in line. The selection is good if you like Yards beer. The service was good. I dug the vibe of the place. Great place.

Always packed and always fun.

This is a must visit brewery if in philly, and the most tradtional brewery in philadelphia. 3 different flights to give you an idea of what is being served. The beer tour is fun but standard. You will get some samples on the tour.

The folks there care about the craft, but the brewery does have a "tourist trap" vibe to it. There is nothing wrong with that.

Awesome beer selection! But seating can be scarce and food choices are very limited, but definitely go for the beer!!!!
