Yards Bewing Company

The first pint of Yards ever poured was at Dawson Street Pub in Manayunk.

It's been on the hand pump there every day since May 19, 1995.

Tom Kehoe, Spokesman for Bud Light?

It's true. Tom got his 15 minutes of fame in a Bud Light commercial in the early 2000s.

Beer delivery by horse and buggy? Why not.

Yards delivered our first shipment of beer from the Northern Liberties brewery by horse and carriage. We had to get a parade permit to do it.

The name Yards Brewing Company was incorporated in New Jersey in 1990.

Hey, it made for a great softball team name until Tom and Jon got the brewery up and running in '94.

How it all began...

Back in the late '80s, two college buddies, Tom and Jon, decided to brew some beer for their friends. Whether it was natural talent or the endless supply of free beer, people liked what they tasted and wanted more. They didn’t know it at the time, but this was the beginning of what was to become Yards Brewing Company. From a garage in Manayunk, to Roxborough, then Kensington and finally to Northern Liberties, this is the Story of Yards, Philly’s Brewery since 1994.

Where we are now...

Here at Yards, it's always been about working hard, having fun and giving back. The Brew Unto Others motto reflects our commitment to quality, community and sustainability. It's also a call-to-action. We encourage you to get together, to enjoy our beer, each other's company and to Brew Unto Others every day.
