Beer-Centric Yard House Debuts New Wines by the Bottle and Glass

Irvine, Calif.-- (April 19, 2016) – Variety may be the spice of life, but at Yard House, which is known for its 100-plus taps of beer, it’s the new selection of varietals and blends that are creating a buzz among guests. The award-winning restaurant has just completed its wine review and has added an array of new offerings by the bottle and glass this week.

“While we do an annual Beer Review, which we just completed last month, we typically update our wine list about every other year,” said Greg Howard, beverage manager for Yard House. “In addition to a large selection of popular varietals, we’ve also added some blends as well as a Pinot Gris available by the glass – something we have never poured before. I think casual wine drinkers--as well as oenophiles--will be pleased with the selection.”

New wines by the glass include:

  • CHEHALEM THREE VINEYARDS PINOT GRIS (Willamette Valley)
  • NUGAN ESTATE CHARDONNAY (Southeastern Australia)
  • HEAD TO HEAD RED BLEND (Tuscany)
  • VAMPIRE MERLOT (California)
  • LA CREMA SONOMA COAST CHARDONNAY (most locations)

Nugan Estate Chardonnay, a bright, crisp and less heavily oaked Chardonnay, is produced by a single estate in southeastern Australia. Tuscany’s Head to Head Red Blend, hails from Italy’s most famous wine region and offers appealing flavors of cherries and spice in a smooth yet full-bodied rounded palate. The other three new wines by the glass—Chehalem Three Vineyards Pinot Gris, Vampire Merlot and La Crema--are produced in Oregon and California.

New wines by the bottle:

  • FOLEY STA. RITA HILLS CHARDONNAY
  • STONESTREET ALEXANDER VALLEY CHARDONNAY
  • TWOMEY RUSSIAN RIVER PINOT NOIR
  • CASARENA ARGENTINIAN CABERNET SAUVIGNON
  • THE PRISONER NAPA VALLEY RED BLEND

Casarena Cabernet Sauvignon, a single vineyard Cabernet aged 15 months in French oak, is the only new wine by the bottle not produced in California. The others hail from various appellations in Napa Valley and Sonoma County.

These new wines join Yard House’s other white and red varietals, including everything from Moscato and Riesling to pinot noir, Malbec and sparkling wines.

About Yard House

When Yard House opened in 1996 in Long Beach, California, it revolutionized the restaurant industry by creating a 250-tap draft beer system. Its lofty design, warm wood accents, and industrial vibe with the use of steel and chrome, made it a dining destination from the start.

Nearly 20 years and 63 restaurants later, Yard House still leads the way with great food, classic rock and a vast selection of draft beer while evolving into an award-winning dining destination known for its menu of American favorites, crafted cocktails and endless fleet of tap handles featuring the best American craft beers and imports. The exhibition kitchen creates more than 100 items made from scratch daily with quality ingredients and globally-inspired flavors. The menu reads like a road trip across America and guests can select from an array of items, including grilled burgers, gourmet salads, street tacos, steaks, seafood and house favorites.

Each Yard House has its own distinct beer list with a handful of taps reserved for local and regional brewers along with an offering of seasonal and small-batch selections as part of the rotating “Chalkboard Series.” The glass-enclosed keg room showcases hundreds of steel barrels containing as much as 4,000 gallons of beer that flow to the center island bar through an extensive network of tubing positioned overhead. From there the beer is fed to the taps where it’s served ice-cold by the pint, 9-ounce shorty, goblet or half-yard glass container. Yard House is also well-known for its classic rock boasting a library of 5,000 songs with each location having its own distinct playlist. Yard House is open daily for lunch, dinner and late-night dining.
