good Yards' news

Yards Signs Lease For Delaware Avenue Property, Will Move Brewery There In January

story by Jack Curtin

Good news indeed that Tom Kehoe has saved Yards Brewing Company, after his recent split with past partners, Bill and Nancy Barton.

[UPDATE 2008.09.12: Joe Russell reports that Yards, at long last, has begun brewing anew.]
And today, Yards will fire up the kettles for its first official batch in its new brewery on Delaware Avenue. The facility, a former iron shop in the shadow of what may become the SugarHouse Casino, will eventually include a small pub.

The new brewery is twice the size of Yards' former plant. By 2009, Kehoe hopes to be producing the equivalent of 275,000 cases a year, 2 1/2 times greater than Yards' biggest previous output.
