Your gameday beer: Yards Love Stout Anything from Yards is a friend of mine. They just make damn good beers. My favorite is Yards ESA, but this Love Stout is intriguing. It’s a very dark beer with a dark head that has a chocolate and coffee aroma. For you java lovers, this could be gold. For those who enjoy Guinness, it’s right up there in taste and color, no lie. If your in Philly, get down to the Yards brewery on Columbus Blvd and order a grilled cheese with one of these and enjoy. -Pat Gallen GO PHILLIES!
