About Yards Brewing Company

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, Philadelphia’s hometown brewery since 1994.

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.
