Yard House Mission Valley just opened September 2015, which helped revolutionize the craft beer movement when the first restaurant opened in 1996 along the Long Beach waterfront, will feature 130 tap handles with nearly one-third dedicated to regional craft offerings from 20 local brewers in and around the Greater San Diego area. 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.
€œWe take a lot of pride in putting together the best craft beer offerings possible,€ said Gregory Howard, beverage manager for Yard House. €œIt’s a process, and no two locations are a like; each has its own distinct beer list driven by what guests are enjoying locally. We always strive to showcase the local brewers, and with Mission Valley we are very pleased with the outcome.€
Among the local brewers are AleSmith, Alpine, Ballast Point, Belching Beaver, Coronado, Green Flash, Groundswell, Hess, Iron Fist, Ironfire, Karl Strauss, Left Coast, Lost Abbey, Mission, Modern Times, Mother Earth, Pizza Port, Port Brewing, Refuge, Saint Archer, and Stone.
