Intersections: Yards Tasting Room

Venerable local brewery taps a new market.

In late January, Yards Brewing Company unveiled their latest assist to the city’s hangovers: a tasting room at their brewery on Delaware Avenue. The space will sell six-packs, cases, kegs and sixtels, in addition to pints that can be enjoyed at the U-shaped bar. The tasting room was constructed using a plethora of recycled and salvaged materials—the bar is made from old bowling alley planks, the floor is a sustainable composite and the lights came from an old Bennigan’s. There is also a limited food menu featuring sandwiches and chili. In addition to its regular hours, the tasting room is available for private parties and events.
901 N. Delaware Ave, noon–7 p.m. Mon.-Sat.; 
noon–4 p.m. Sun., yardsbrewing.com
