The Yard House restaurant officially opens Sunday,
March 24 at 11 a.m. for lunch, dinner and late-night dining.
House is the creation of founder and entrepreneur Steele Platt, who came up
with the concept shortly after relocating from Denver, Colorado to Southern
California in the early 1990s.
along with partners Harald Herrmann and Carlito Jocson, wanted to create a
restaurant that would offer one of the largest selections of draft beers, a
diverse menu of American fare, and play a heady selection of classic rock music
on a state-of-the-art sound system. On December 7, 1996, the flagship Yard
House opened along the Long Beach waterfront in Southern California.
The restaurant took its name
from the 3-foot-tall glass containers originally designed in Great Britain and
used to hand stagecoach drivers after a long journey by horse drawn carriage.
Each Yard House location features a center island bar and an endless fleet of
tap handles ranging from classic lagers to more obscure ales.
The glass-enclosed keg room
is essentially the pulse of the operation housing as much as 5,000 gallons of
beer at a time. Three to five miles of individual beer lines stretch overhead
from the keg room to the island bar maintaining a constant temperature of 34-36
degrees keeping the beer consistently fresh and perfectly chilled for every
pint. Guests can sip their favorite draft beer from the popular half-yard,
traditional pint or six pack sampler.
Keg Day is 3/12/13
There is one morning, before each Yard House
opens, when the trucks pull up and the kegs load in.
brews include Angry Orchard, Mt. Carmel, Rivertown and Christian Moerlein
Arrival of 700 spirit bottles and 56 cases of
keg is carefully tagged with the date and name of distributor

Yard House's calling card is its unique beer system featuring a glass-enclosed
Keg Room housing hundreds of steel barrels
The beer is
transported from this location through miles of overhead steel and nylon
tubing, which feeds into the taps at the center island bar
