"Yards No. 1"—Rob Lloyd.

"The Yards Bottle Tap" – Chris Dietrich. How do customers recognize Yards Beer in a poorly lit bar? This design mimics the strengths of the Yards brand in the commercial bottle market and extends that recognition to the draft point-of-purchase moment With prominent 360° Yards branding and a flavor label on the customer AND pourer sides, this universal tap retains the core brand across all flavors. Top-mounted figures emphasize the iconic styles and add unique character to the Yards product line.

    To further emphasize the specific flavors available on tap, a top screw mount provides the opportunity to adorn each tap handle with a specific ornament for each iconic beer style: a colonial wig for the Ales of the Revolution series, an orange fist for the Brawler, a Fleur de Lis for the Saison, a Union Jack shield for the IPA, etc. - all created with affordable CNC 3D printing models and a simple screw post insert.

“Manticore”–Oat Foundry. This tap weaves together manufacturing techniques, both established and heuristic. The hollowed out body of this handle is machined from a single block of black walnut, finished with linseed oil and amber shellac. The walnut frame showcases the hand-brazed brass tumblers that are unmistakably Yards above a union of 3D printed accessories and hand-turned brass counterweights. The lush, dark walnut and polished brass ensures that this tap handle presents well in any bar.

    Philadelphia is a city proudly steeped in beer brewing tradition. In this active culture of makers and dreamers, equipment evolved and new techniques were pioneered that paved the way for a new era of creators. With this age of innovation, beer brewers flourished and customers began to expect and demand a higher quality product. Just as the brewers’ goal was to deliver a superior product, our tap handle embodies their choice to adopt and test new, sometimes unique, practices. The solid walnut frame and brass pieces represent the techniques and meticulous attention to detail that our brewing forefather’s respected, with the 3D printed furniture characterizing their thirst for, and ability to adopt new techniques. As avid home brewers and Yards’ lovers in our own right, design house Oat Foundry is proud and humbled to participate in this celebration of beer. - Oat Foundry

"The ScrapYards" —Conor O'Brien. Inspired by Yard’s philosophy of “Going The Extra Yard,” it combines sustainability with the brewery’s classic style. Repurposing materials from the scrap heap, the body is constructed of exotic wood cutoffs and Yards logo from aluminum scrap metal, both fabricated using a 4-axis CNC mill. The handle embodies the spirit of Yards, creating an artisanal product with minimal impact on the environment while embracing the advanced technologies available at NextFab.
