Yard of Ale St Pete
260 1st Ave. N
Saint Petersburg, FL 33701
Since this bar is open till 3AM every night, Yard of Ale located on the Central Avenue Block would be the best craft beer bar in downtown St. Pete for drinking late night.
While the Yard of Ale may be a bit of a local dive bar or party bar considering St. Pete’s standards, they offer 28 beers on tap and 50+ beers in a bottle or can. When I visited in late 2016, it seems they could have done a better job with their beer list. As of late however, it seems Yard of Ale has revamped their beer list with a bit more focus on craft beer with more Florida breweries as as well more creative selections from other US craft breweries.
Yard of Ale has fair prices along with all kinds of specials including happy hour and daily food & drink specials. Yard of Ale’s happy hour is everyday from 4PM to 7PM with $4 craft beer cans and $4 Cigar City beers. Happy hour at Yard of Ale also includes $5 craft beer flights and $5 personal pizzas. Yard of Ale’s daily specials include such food and drink items as $4 Tacos & $3 Milagro Reposado Shots on Tuesday, $3 Burger & $6 Old Forester Old Fashioned on Wednesday, and $4 IPA or half off hospitality all day Sunday.
Yard of Ale has recently streamlined their bar food menu to include some creative food items priced for value with $7 to $9 Starters, $7 to $8 Skillets, $8 to $9 Ciabatta Sandwiches served with French Fries, $10 to $14 Pizza, and a couple of $10 Baked Pastas.
