Yard's Cape of Good Hope IPA ( Philadelphia, PA )

Originally brewed to withstand the epic voyages from the shores of England around the African Cape of Good Hope to the Indian Subcontient, the India Pale Ale has always been a beer for the adventurous soul. Thoroughly hopped with Amarillos in both the whirlpool and the fermenter, it was then transferred to our makeshift shipping cask, where it was dry-hopped again with Nugget and Columbus. Set adrift in our brewery without cooling, it was able to age as though it had been put to sea for six months. The result is an authentic double dry hopped and uniquely aged India Pale Ale reminiscent of something you’d find solace in on a balmy, Indian evening far away from home.

Yards Brewing
Yards Brewing Company was founded in October 1994 and debuted its flagship beer, Extra Special Ale (ESA), at the Philadelphia Craft Brewers Festival on April 30, 1995. The response was overwhelming. In order to satisfy growing demand for its product, the brewery moved from its tiny original plant to 5050 Umbria Street in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia. A bottling line was added and tank capacity was increased to 3,500 barrels per year and Yards began bottling its Extra Special Ale in late December, 1997. The brewery also began producing a variety of new ales. Yards will be expanding again in 2001, moving to the Kensington section of Philadelphia and into the former site of the Weisbrod & Hess Brewery that closed its doors in 1939. The 40,000 square foot facility will enable Yards to increase production to nearly 10,000 bbls/year.
