Delaware-headquartered Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant recently announced the opening of its third location in the Diamond State’s Rehoboth area (you might know it as the town where Dogfish Head opened its first brewpub). Located on Route 1 at 19815 Coastal Highway, the opening plays a significant role in the company’s aggressive 20 by 20 expansion plan and marks the 14th restaurant and brewery for the award-winning group.
Located adjacent to the Tanger Outlets, the 425-seat restaurant will employ roughly 100 full and part time staff. Designed by Bray Architecture, it includes an on-site brewing facility with a capacity of 900 barrels per year, al fresco dining and will remain open for the entire season, providing both beach-goers and locals with a new, casual and fun dining destination. Seasonal beers are being brewed on site, including the Breakwater IPA, which is unique to the Rehoboth location. This 5 percent ABV IPA has crisp notes of citrus fruits in the flavor and aroma, making it the perfect beach beer.
Iron Hill Rehoboth, which shares the overall mission since founders Kevin Finn, Mark Edelson and Kevin Davies opened the first Iron Hill in Newark, DE in 1996, promises to bring the same craft beer freshness such as the award-winning signature Vienna Red Lager and deliciously unrefined and wholesome fare. The restaurant will also include seasonal craft beers and menu items to reflect the local flavor of the beach community including the Breakwater IPA, Baked Eastern Shore Crab Cakes and Hand-Cut Belgian-Style Fries.
As part of their philanthropic efforts and as a commitment to the local community, Iron Hill is collaborating with Children’s Beach House to donate $0.75 from each Triple Chocolate Hill dessert sold in order to help children with special needs reach their highest potential as functioning members of their families and communities.
“Opening in Rehoboth and offering our trademark hospitality to the area means a great deal to the Iron Hill family,” explained Cofounder Kevin Finn. “We obviously have always had strong ties to our home state and this new initiative reinforces that ideal even further.”
