Enjoy the Yard House’s “Grab The Goblet” event! Yard House, which opened its very first location at Shoreline Village in Long Beach on December 7, 1996, will tap 3 Degrees of Celebration, a Triple IPA brewed in a trifecta partnership with San Diego’s Green Flash Brewing Co. and Alpine Beer Company, on its 20-year anniversary early next month. Guests who order the special Anniversary Beer, offered all day long on December 7th for $7.50 a goblet at the flagship location, will receive a complimentary keepsake commemorative glass while supplies last.
“I love this time of year when we release our Anniversary Beer,” said Gregory Howard, director of Beverage Strategy for Yard House. “This particular commemorative brew is a wonderful collaboration with Green Flash and Alpine Beer Company, and gives our guests an opportunity to enjoy a quality beer that was crafted by Yard House team members.”
Every year Yard House collaborates with a different brewer to create a special Anniversary Beer as part of its Chalkboard Series, which features seasonal and small batch beers that rotate frequently. This year Howard and his team traveled to San Diego to meet with the brewers of Green Flash Brewing Co. and Alpine Beer Company. Together the team of beer experts created a signature and memorable IPA.
“We were honored and excited when Yard House chose to partner with us to brew a special beer to celebrate their 20th anniversary,” says Erik Jensen, brewmaster of Green Flash Brewing Co. “Yard House has always been a champion for craft brewers, and the team there shares our core values – putting an emphasis on quality and flavor above all. This beer is a salute to not only Yard House, but to our tight-knit beer community.”
Touted as “three cheers to 20 years,” 3 Degrees of Celebration is an epic brew that consists of three pounds of dry hops per barrel and a delicate balance of fruity, resinous hop flavors with a sweet malt base. Its golden apricot hue reflects its intense floral and fruity aroma.
Howard added that 3 Degrees of Celebration pairs nicely with just about anything on Yard House’s menu, but is especially complementary to some of the offerings available on the restaurant’s holiday menu, especially the grilled 16oz Rib Eye.
When Yard House opened in Long Beach nearly 20 years ago it helped to fuel the craft beer movement. Each location averages 130-180 taps with a focus on local and regional beers.
Yard House will tap 3 Degrees of Celebration on its 20th Anniversary—Wednesday, December 7—nationwide, but the commemorative “Grab the Goblet” offering with $7.50 goblets is only available at the original location in Long Beach. The commemorative goblets are available while supplies last; 3 Degrees of Celebration is expected to tap out sometime in mid-January.
Yard House is open daily for lunch, dinner and late-night dining and is known for its great food, classic rock, and more than 100 tap handles of beer. For more information, visit yardhouse.com
