Sixty cask-conditioned beers from your favorite breweries here in Philly and beyond. Live music. Great food. A commemorative glass that’s yours to keep. It’s the 11th annual Yards Real Ale Invitational, and this year we’re turning it up to 11. What are you waiting for?
WHAT IS REAL ALE?
Cask ale, or real ale, is unfiltered, unpasteurized beer that carbonates naturally inside a cask rather than using nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. This brewing method originated in England and Yards helped resurrect the style in Philly over 20 years ago with our Extra Special Ale. And we’ve been keeping it real since 2008 with our annual Real Ale Invitational.
