Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but Iron Hill Brewery is opening up a new location. No, not in Georgia, that was last week (its 18th location). In fact, this is an entirely new concept for the team. Located in Exton, Pa., Iron Hill Brewery TapHouse will be a polished fast casual concept offering a laid-back vibe, innovative fare and house Iron Hill Brewery’s first large-scale production brewery, where gleaming tanks take center stage behind the black steel-topped bar offering 26 taps.
“Opening the TapHouse is an exciting milestone for Iron Hill including the large-scale production facility. To see this dream come true for the founders, especially Mark Edelson (Director of Brewery Operations) and the entire brewery team has been so rewarding, and it’s their passion of and pride for Iron Hill that has made this all possible” says Kim Boerema CEO of Iron Hill Brewery. “We can’t think of a better way to enter our 25th year of operations!”
Designed by Bray Architecture, Iron Hill Brewery TapHouse exudes a casual industrial sense with polished concrete floors offset by iconic Iron Hill pop art imagery and warm wood tones found in seating throughout the 4,500 sq. ft. space. Black metal coated pendants hang from the soaring ceiling echoing the metal panels found along the bar front contrasted by the wooden wall feature with floor to ceiling windows ushering in natural light.
Beers: The TapHouse’s opening tap list features six of Iron Hill’s signature beers including Iron Hill Light Lager, Vienna Red Lager, Pig Iron Porter, Philly Phavorite, Homesteadä, and Brambleberryä, and a rotating selection of seasonal beers like Reindeer’s Revenge, Spruce Moose IPA, Winter Warmer, Scrooge IPA and Saturday Morningz w/ Blackberry & Lemon. A selection of nine specialty beers like The Grand Inquisitor, Flavortown IPA, and Dankonia IPA will round out the extensive beer selection.
Founded in Newark, DE in 1996 by Kevin Finn, Mark Edelson and Kevin Davies, Iron Hill is among the most enduringly successful restaurants and craft brewery concepts in the United States with 19 locations in DE, NJ, PA, SC and GA and over 20 years of award-winning recognition at national and international beer competitions.
