Inside the new Yards Brewing Co. location. Up to 280 people can drink and eat in the taproom.

Yards Brewing Co. has moved from Northern Liberties to 500 Spring Garden St. It officially opens to the public at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16.

Inside the taproom, there's a spot to pick up six-packs, a main bar with TVs, picnic-style tables, a lounge space with a pool table and a private event space upstairs. There's an outdoor area, too, separated from the taproom by roll-up garage windows.

The new location also serves food, a first for Yards. View the food menu here and the draft list here.

It will be open 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Sundays through Wednesdays and from 11:30 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays.

Below are photos of the 70,000-sq.-ft. space, which has a modern industrial feel, an open floor plan, 25-ft. ceilings and views of the entire brewing operation.

For the first time in the brewery's 23-year history, there will be a kitchen churning out pub fare. Chef James Burke, a James Beard Award semifinalist, is in charge of the menu.
