Yard House King of Prussia

On Tuesday, March 14, Yard House will herald the arrival of some 250 kegs and 4,000 gallons of beer just days before they open at the King of Prussia Mall on Monday, March 27 at 11am.  This ritual of the arrival of beer is known as “Keg Day.”

Yard House, which helped revolutionize the craft beer movement when the restaurant first opened in 1996 along the waterfront in Long Beach, California, will feature 130 tap handles at the new restaurant at the King of Prussia Mall. The beer list includes 120 unique, year-round brands and will feature 28 regional craft offerings from 17 different local brewers from the Philadelphia region as well as favorite domestic and import beers enhanced with a handful of seasonal craft beer offerings from Pennsylvania, Delaware and Boston.

In addition, five tap handles will be reserved for the restaurant’s Chalkboard Series, a selection of small, limited releases from mostly craft brewers that rotate monthly keeping the selection both innovative and fresh. These featured beers are listed on a digital chalkboard prominently displayed above the center-island bar.

“We take great pride in putting together the best craft beer offerings possible,” said Gregory Howard, director of beverage strategy for Yard House. “It’s a process, and no two locations are alike; each has its own distinct beer list driven by what guests are enjoying locally.  Our most popular beers are our House Beers, which are brewed especially for Yard House by Uinta.”

Local and regional seasonal beers, which will rotate frequently, include:

  • Dogfish Head Seasonal (Milton, DE)

  • Yuengling Seasonal (Pottsville, PA)

  • Victory Seasonal (Downingtown, PA)

  • Samuel Adams Seasonal (Boston, MA)

  • Evil Genius Seasonal (West Grove, PA)

There are also 23 new draft offerings making their debut at Yard House for the first time in the restaurant’s 20-year history, including:

The glass-enclosed keg room, one of Yard House’s signature architectural features, will contain some 4,000 gallons of beer and is kept at a consistent temperature that ranges from 34 to 36 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once Keg Day is complete it will be stacked with kegs that have been tagged, dated and assigned a tap handle. From there the beer is fed to the taps through five miles of individual beer lines encased in stainless steel to the center-island bar where it is served perfectly chilled by the pint, goblet or signature half yard glass.

The new Yard House at King of Prussia Mall will open Monday, March 27 at 11am.
