At Bell Beverage, we can’t get enough of Yards Brewing Company’s Philadelphia Pale Ale. New York Times even named it one of the best pale ales in the country. If you love it as much as we do, we have some great recommendations for similar beers to try.

Who is Yards Brewing Company?

Yards Brewing Co. was established in 1994, but its story starts long before. It began in the 1980’s in a garage in Manayunk, PA, when two college buddies decided to try their hand at brewing beer. The operation grew until eventually, they ended up with the  brewery we know today in Northern Liberties.

Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale

This is one great pale ale and it has the resume to prove it. In 2004, it made New York Times’ Top Five Pale Ales in the Country list. In 2009, during Philly Beer week, it was awarded the Best Beer to Pair with a Cheesesteak. In 2012, it won the Best of Philly: Best Beer and the Atlantic City Beer Festival: Best Light Beer awards.

This hoppy pale ale is brewed with pilsner malt and has bright citrus notes. It pairs well with cheeses like feta, fontina, asiago, and parmesan. Bell Beverage stocks Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale it in 12 oz bottles, ⅙ keg, and ½ keg.

Similar Beers You Can Find At Bell Beverage

If you want to stick with what’s tried and true, we have plenty of Yards in stock. If you’re ready to branch out, however, we have some fantastic pale ales on queue.

Our Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is made from Cascade hops that create a floral flavor with extra spice. Although it’s more medium bodied, the Sly Fox Phoenix Pale Ale we carry is similarly crisp and refreshing with its Cascadian hops. Lastly, the Lagunitas Dogtown Pale Ale is a deliciously malty APA with tropical citrus notes.

Bell Beverage is located on the corner of  Front & Oregon and we are proud to supply Philadelphia with the best pale ales.
