Yards News 

Some exciting news from Yards Brewing Company Founder and Brewmaster, Tom Kehoe. The Philadelphia brewery is planning a major expansion at their Delaware Ave. brewery that will have a nearly 50 percent increase in production. New fermenters are on their way which will enable Tom and his team to brew around 24,000 barrels, up 8,000 from their current output. This is great news for Yards lovers far and wide, distribution will surely expand as they are able to produce more beer. Unfortunately there is no timeline available at this time.

Love Stout is out breaking hearts all over the city. Yards took a bit of a break from this oyster stout but it is back and it is mighty fine if I do say so myself. Here is a list of bars which have Love Stout on tap:
  • Brigid's
  • City Tap House
  • Dawson Street
  • Irish Pol
  • Jose Pistola's
  • Local 44
  • London Grill
  • Rembrandt's
  • Southwark
  • Swift Half
And of course you can get it at the Yards tasting room which is open Monday - Saturday from 12-7pm and Sunday from 12-4pm except for this upcoming Saturday, no tours or tastings on the 16th!

Lastly, Yards sent their barley over to Percy Street BBQ to be smoked for their Grodziski Smoked Polish Wheat. I had this on tap at The Hulmeville this past summer and I would recommend everyone to at least try it once it is out again. It is truly one of the most interesting beers I've ever had. You've got your wheats and you've got your smoked beers, I had never had the two together before this and was really blown away by the flavors that came along with this combination. It is not for everyone, the smokiness is quite prominent, but if you want to try something incredibly unique make sure you grab a pint next time you see it at a bar.
