Taste: Spirits: On Tap: Yards Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale

Toast the Fourth of July with a mug of strong golden ale brewed in honor of the Declaration’s author. Philadelphia’s own Yards Brewing Company makes this coppery brew, full of toffee-like malt richness and dried-fruit aromas, according to the original Monticello recipe. Long a staple at Old City’s City Tavern, this historic beer can also be found on tap at Bridgid’s near the Art Museum.
