About Yards Brewery:
We're brewers by trade, craft brewers to be specific. At Yards, It’s about brewing what we love, loving what we brew, and doing it in the most environmentally friendly way we can.
Our roots lie in British inspired ales and we strive to achieve balance and subtlety in all of the styles we brew through careful selection of ingredients and an unwavering commitment to artisanal production practices. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor whether it be the Yards standard Philadelphia Pale Ale, our first love (and first brewed) Extra Special Ale, the liquid time capsules that are the Ales of the Revolution, or the experimental small batches that come from our original 3-barrel brew house, Yards 1.
Our humble beginnings taught us to take our craft seriously, but not ourselves, and instilled a strong desire to be a positive force in the communities we serve. If you are familiar with us and have raised a pint of Yards in the past 17 years, we sincerely thank you for your support.
If you are new to Yards, please take a few minutes and explore our site to discover who we are, what we are about, and how you can join us in our mission to help solve the world’s problems one great beer at a time. Have fun.
