Marshall from Yard House said on December 5 2015
Recently Yard House celebrated the arrival of some 200 kegs and 3,000 gallons of beer during Keg Day, a company ritual that takes place just days before a Yard House opens. In this case, Keg Day signaled that the new Yard House at the Moorestown Mall is on the brink of welcoming its first guests this Saturday, December 5 at 11 a.m.
Yard House, which helped revolutionize the craft beer movement when the first restaurant opened in 1996 along the Long Beach waterfront, will feature 110 tap handles, a number of which are dedicated to regional craft offerings from 15 local brewers from New Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia region. In addition, five 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 island bar.
“We take a lot of pride in putting together the best craft beer offerings possible,” said Gregory Howard, beverage manager 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. We always strive to showcase the local brewers, and with Moorestown we are very pleased with the outcome.”
Among the local brewers are 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, and Yards Brewing.
In addition, Yard House at the Moorestown Mall will boast 18 draft offerings that have never been offered at any Yard House location with 17 hailing from New Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia region.
“New Jersey has a great up and coming local craft beer scene and we’re excited to be a part of it. I think we hit a home run with the balance of local and regional craft brands. I’m excited to see our guests’ reactions when we open on Saturday,” added Howard.
The glass-enclosed keg room, one of Yard House’s signature architectural features, contains some 3,000 gallons of beer and is kept at a consistent temperature that ranges from 34 to 36 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s now stacked with kegs that have been tagged, dated, assigned a tap handle, and placed on the beer head awaiting the doors to open this Saturday at 11 a.m. when five miles of individual beer lines encased in stainless steel will carry the golden liquid to the signature island bar.
The new Yard House at the Moorestown Mall is located on Route 38 at South Lenola Road in Moorestown, NJ. For more information, visit yardhouse.com. Like us on Facebook (/YardHouse) and follow us on Twitter (@YardHouse).
