Real Ale is back!
Sunday, April 19th
The Yards 2020 Real Ale Invitational will have 50 cask-conditioned beers from the latest and greatest Philly area breweries, your favorite American brewers, the OGs from across the Pond, and of course, Yards. Sample as you roam our brewhouse and packaging facility. Jam to live music in our warehouse surrounded by towering walls of kegs, cans, and bottles (selfie opportunities abound). And enjoy hearty British fare and festival-friendly bites in our sunlit, spacious taproom.
All guests will receive a commemorative glass and guide to the day's festivities. All tickets also include food and live music to enjoy throughout the afternoon. Beer is included for regular admission ticket holders only. Tickets will be available at the door if the event does not sell out. (Real Ale has sold out for the last seven years, so we don't recommend waiting.) This event will be held rain or shine and guests must be 21+ to attend.
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 the Real Ale Invitational.
