Yards Brewing Company Taproom - Chef James BurkeThis November (2017) Yards Brewing Company will open Yards Brewery and Taproom at 500 Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood. The highly-anticipated expansion and move from their cozy tasting room on Delaware Avenue further establishes Yards as “Philadelphia’s Brewery” and provides them with a new 70,000-square-foot facility.

The taproom – with Chef James Burke, a James Beard Award semifinalist, as the power behind the stove – will be the first kitchen in the brewery’s 23-year history. Chef Burke’s menu will complement and incorporate the choice hops and grains used in Yards’ award-winning beers, with special attention paid to local purveyors, Philly favorites, and classic pub fare.

The menu will be divided into Snacks, Sandwiches, Entrées, and Desserts; and the kitchen will serve food until one hour before closing time. The bar will feature 20 total taps, including all Yards’ signature beers and a number of limited releases only available in the taproom.

Chef Burke’s offerings will evolve as the taproom evolves, but menu items may include:

Yards Patty Melt, Brawler Onions, and Swiss

Crab Toast with Calabrian Chilies and Chives

Smoked Cheddar Bratwurst, Sauerkraut and House-Made Mustard

Roast Pork, Fermented Broccoli Rabe and Provolone

Beer Can Chicken, Fried Potatoes

Bison Chili, Maple Cornbread

Pork Belly Kebab, Tavern Spruce Glaze

Tavern Porter & Espresso Chocolate Mousse

Yards Taproom and Brewery, designed by Philadelphia-based architecture firm DIGSU, will be modern industrial: an expansive, open floor plan with 25-foot ceilings, large hanging metallic lights and long wooden tables designed by local non-profit The Challenge Program, will offer 360 views of the entire brewing operation. The taproom will comfortably accommodate 280 guests. Adjacent to the taproom will be the Brewer’s Lounge, complete with a pool table, TV, dart board, and shuffleboard.

Yards is already accepting reservations for holiday parties. For more information, please contact Yards Brewing Company directly at (215) 634-2600.

Bon Appétit!
