My New Favorite Beer Garden!
This place is awesome! I can’t tell you how long I waited for a beer garden like this to open up around here. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always have an affinity for The Texas Roadhouse (where I get to throw peanut shells on the floor, sit on the saddle on my birthday, and watch the pretty waitresses do the Achy Breaky in the aisle) but it is NOT a beer garden. It does and will continue to have the best babyback ribs in the world. But The Yardhouse blows away all beer halls, except for the Hofbräuhaus in Munich—but that’s another story.
The Yardhouse is a Southern California based chain that is starting to branch out to other parts of the country. Well, I have a feeling that they are going to do well here in MA. In a story that I wrote called Samuel Adams Boston Lager®: Wine Country Versus Beer Country, I talk about how New England with its well over forty microbreweries is Beer Country as opposed to Napa or Sonoma Valleys being Wine Country. And now we have The Yardhouse to further solidify that position!
The place has 130 beers on tap! Beers from all over the country and abroad. The menu is a huge selection of classic American cuisine that compliments any style of beer that you’re drinking. There are beer samplers (a very economical and enjoyable experience) and foot and a half long beer steins topping out at 32 ounces!
This place is a beer lovers dream!
Also, there are tons of flat screen TVs about showing lots of sporting events (Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Patriots—yeah, I’m a New Englander). However, my favorite part of The Yardhouse is the outdoor patio with the open hearth flame. I am the ultimate “al fresco” king. I love eating and drinking outside in the warmer months.
Another great benefit of The Yardhouse’s location is the fact this it is literally steps away from the awesome new Showcase Cinema De Lux. I’ll write more on this sophisticated and elegant entertainment and dining experience later but suffice it to say that if you haven’t experienced the Lux Level of movie-going you haven’t gone to the movies lately!
And a few more steps down from The Yardhouse and the cinema is the killer new Kings Bowling and Entertainment Facility. This place puts all other bowling alleys to shame as it is a virtual night club, lounge, and social gathering emporium all in one.
So when in Dedham MA, come to Legacy Place: drink fine beer at The Yardhouse, see a movie in first class-style at the Cinema De Lux, and then bowl the night away at Kings.
