Yard House Brings 110 Taps to Moorestown

When Yard House opens at the Moorestown Mall on December 5th it will feature 110 taps behind its island bar. This is the first Yard House in the Philadelphia area, nationwide there are 64 Yard House locations over 23 states. The chain began life in Long Beach, California back in 1996.

At least 15 of the taps will be dedicated to New Jersey and Philadelphia area craft beers. An additional five handles will be reserved for the restaurant’s Chalkboard Series, which features limited releases from mostly craft brewers that rotate regularly.

Among the local breweries featured:

  • Carton Brewing
  • Cricket Hill
  • Evil Genius
  • Flying Fish
  • Forgotten Boardwalk
  • Free Will
  • Lancaster
  • Neshaminy Creek
  • New Jersey Beer Co.
  • Philadelphia Brewing
  • Spellbound Brewing
  • Tröegs
  • Victory
  • Weyerbacher
  • Yards Brewing

Beverage Manager Gregory Howard said “no two locations are alike; each has its own distinct beer list driven by what guests are enjoying locally. We always strive to showcase the local brewers, and with Moorestown we are very pleased with the outcome.”

The 11,000 square foot restaurant will be open daily for lunch, dinner and late-night eats. The Moorestown Yard House will have seating for 360 guests and 30 seats around the signature island bar. Above that bar will hang a “digital chalkboard” displaying all of the beers on tap.

The menu is made up of salads and grilled burgers to seafood, steak and ribs. The trademarked gardein (“a blend of garden vegetables and protein that have the look, taste and texture of chicken”) will ensure there’s an option for vegetarians.

For its opening on Saturday at 11 a.m., Yard House has 200 kegs and 3,000 gallons of beer at the ready in its glass-enclosed keg room. Five miles of beer lines will get it to the taps.
