You’re not going to believe this but Delaware-based Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant has opened a new location. This 16th location (10th in Pennsylvania) opened on November 19 and is in the heart of downtown Hershey within the Hershey Towne Square. Iron Hill Hershey is the largest tenant and occupies 9,000 sq ft in the new mixed-use development by RVG Management and Development.
Iron Hill Hershey boasts a seating capacity of 290 in its dining, bar and outdoor areas and features an on-site brewery with the ability to produce 900 bbls of award-winning craft beer annually. The Iron Hill Hershey location will be managed by industry veteran Bill DeVinney, who has spent the past six years leading numerous Iron Hill locations across a variety of leadership roles and will spearhead the efforts of Hershey’s 100+ member team.
The interior of Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant reflects recent incarnations of the concept featuring floor-to-ceiling windows to usher in natural light and transmit the vibrancy of the downtown neighborhood. Design elements highlight the open kitchen and glass walled-brewery prominently positioned near the bar, which overlooks the patio.
The walls are swathed in warm yellow, gold and rust hues contrasted by pop art mural depicting iconic Iron Hill and craft beer imagery. Sleek industrial vaulted ceilings covered in copper-toned corrugated metal are offset by large black circular chandeliers gently lighting the dining room and bar areas. Located in the middle of the restaurant, a large garage door separates the bar from the patio and can be lifted during warmer weather for inclusive indoor/outdoor seating.
“This has been an incredible year for Iron Hill, and we’re truly humbled and excited to end it with yet another location in Pennsylvania,” said Chairman of the Board and Cofounder Kevin Finn. “We love what we do every single day and hope it shines through in all of the vibrant communities we serve — Hershey being the newest on our growing list. We look forward to expanding the dining and gathering opportunities for both local residents and to the millions of visitors who travel to this region.”
Known for menu items prepared entirely from scratch and paired with beer brewed a few feet from the table, Iron Hill Hershey will provide the area with both cuisine and fresh craft beer in a fun, upscale casual environment. Signature and seasonal beers as well as those exclusive to Hershey are available year-round, brewed on site.
Rotating weekly feature menu offering beer and food items showcasing fresh, seasonal ingredients will be introduced in early 2019. Guests at Iron Hill Hershey will be among the first to experience new presentation and plating to menu favorites like burgers and salads as well as refined menu offerings.
In addition to their brand-wide donation to CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, and as part of Iron Hill’s philanthropy and commitment to the communities they serve, the brewery and restaurant in Hershey will be collaborating with Cocoa Packs to donate $0.75 from each Triple Chocolate Hill dessert sold in order to help fund the organization’s mission to distribute supplemental food during weekends, holidays and summers to students who benefit from school meal programs.
