Yards Brewing Co. is moving to the edge of Northern Liberties with a soaring, 70,000-square-foot taproom, event space, 100-bbl brewery, and canning line at 500 Spring Garden St.
The taproom and event space open Thursday, Nov. 16, while brewing and canning will pick up in early 2018.
This marks the return to the public eye of chef Jim Burke (ex-James), whose menu includes beer-influenced pub food.
(Foie gras poutine! And yes, there most certainly is a shake — malted or banana-coffee — that brings all the boys to the Yards.)
The bar features 20 total taps, including all Yards signature beers plus limited releases available only on-site.
Picnic-style seating faces the brew house (to the right in the photo) as well as the canning line (along the rear window), and there's a mezzanine private-event space overlooking the proceedings.
Opening weekend hours are 6 to 11 p.m. Thursday, 5 to 11 p.m. Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, and 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
