Going the full nine yards
When General Manager Nathan Scheffler says that Yard House, at 950 W. Big Beaver Road, Troy, has options for everyone – he isn’t kidding. “Beer is our heart, but food is what we would call our soul,” he said. The latest addition – and only Michigan location – to the Yard House franchise opened in December and has over 100 menu items to choose from, including vegan options, Nashville hot chicken, ginger crusted salmon, and a variety of pizzas and sandwiches – just to name a very few. They offer nearly as many beer options, coming in at over 100 different types on tap. Scheffler said about 30 to 35 percent of the beers are local to Michigan, including Rochester Mills Pine Knob Pilsner and Kuhnhenn The Fluffer, and will rotate seasonally. The 11,000-square-foot restaurant also has a chalkboard series, a collection of five rare beers that will change every six to eight weeks. Up first: five beers from Michigan’s own, Founders.
