What is a Local Brand You Love Supporting?

Yards Brewing Company

A Philadelphia craft brewery that specializes in ales, Yards is proud of the city's history and association with the founding fathers for their role in U.S. history, but also in brewing ale themselves.

In 1999, in partnership with City Tavern, a historic watering hole frequented by the founding fathers, Yards launched the Ales of the Revolution series of history-inspired beers. They drew inspiration from brewing recipes originally belonging to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin.

"Mural Arts Philadelphia is the nation’s largest public art program. It's responsible for more than 4,000 colorful art works!" Robin Bloom, Content Manager


Where can visitors get a taste of arts and culture in Philadelphia?

Public Art Tours & Historical Sites

Philadelphia has been called the world’s largest outdoor art gallery thanks to its robust city arts programs including Mural Arts Philadelphia, the Association for Public Art, and a more than 60-year-old local law that requires all developers to use about one percent of every project to commission a new public work.

Philadelphia is also home to Independence National Historical Park with iconic sites such as Independence Hall - where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitutions were debated and adopted - and the Liberty Bell, an international symbol of freedom. Named by abolitionists, it became a symbol of the anti-slavery movement.
