My wife and I loved the Yard House. The outside dinning is great for just sitting and watching the world good by while you enjoy your beer.
The beer is displayed very nicely. The taps are layout by style and brand, which is very nice.
I have added this as a waypoint in my GPS for any time I am in town.

I known it is a chain and I know they also serve Bud Light, but coming from Denmark a place like this is fantastic with 130 taps - and lots of them untried for me - in Denmark the best bars has around 20 taps. A huge place and very busy when we visited around dinner time on a Wednesday night. A typical huge beer hall with a very high cealing and a long oval bar with the 130 taps in the center. Even though it was busy the service was quick and quite well informed, and the prices was very reasonable. Unfortunately our crammed scheduel didn’t allow us to stay for more than 4 beers.

A great selection of beers. At least 50 on tap. Their food is good too. Its a little pricey because you’re paying for the "hip and trendy" environment. The servers are not that knowledgeable about the beers- in fact, they suck.

I have been going here for 10 years. Its what you expect from a chain, but the beer selection is impressive.

Supposedly 100+ beers on tap, and you can count the number of ones I’d pay money to try on one hand. The largest selection of mediocre beers, not necessarily even swill, but all very commonly found most everywhere else. If you consider going here, you’d better walk the four blocks over to Lucky Baldwin’s first and check out their beerlist. Food was ok, but a bit pricey and the service was decent. I got a pint of Arrogant Bastard for $2.75 because it was happy hour, so that was nice. Otherwise, this place just does not have any rare finds at all, nothing from Craftsman or Alesmith, and the only Stone beers are the IPA and Arrogant Bastard.

I visited hee a couple of years ago with my wife Stacey and a couple of other friends from LA. We were attending the Star Trek grand slam convention. The convention center is right across the street to the south. Our hotel was also nearby to the south. We were thrilled to find a place that served something other than MACROS that was within walking distance, we found this place purely by accident. I think drank Redhook’s ESB and Stacey had the Winterhook, neither of which we had ever had on tap before. The dinner was pretty much confined to quesa dip and chips while we chatted. The place was bustling and noisy with wall to wall people, the service was slightly inadequate for the number of guests. I will visit again if I am ever in Pasadena again.

Very trendy, lots of beer choices but nothing that really jumps off the menu. The food is pretty tasty, but everything seems a little too uptight. Go during happy hour for some great food deals.

It’s a chain now, so there’s not much that distinquishes this location from others, yet it’s proximity to several great movie theaters and old town pasadena make this a convenient place to stop for a beer particularly if variety is of concern.

Typical of the Yard House chain. Nice upscale place and I like their food. Service is usually decent. Lots of taps but most are macros and euroswill. Decent amount of craft brews that should keep most anyone content - nothing rare or unusual though. Fortunately Lucky Baldwin’s is in walking distance!
