If there’s anything Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant likes more than opening up new locations (up to 16 now), it is giving to charity. Through the year-round Triple Chocolate Hill charity initiative that supports both CureSearch for Children’s Cancer and local charities, in tandem with partnering with the Veterans Multi-Service Center and the Upstate Veterans Alliance during Veterans Day, Iron Hill raised more than $65,000 in charitable contributions, to be allocated to multiple different organizations.
The Triple Chocolate Hill charity initiative has been implemented as a community program to donate a $1.50 of the proceeds from the dessert to both national and local charities. Each time a guest orders the Triple Chocolate Hill dessert, Iron Hill donates $.75 to CureSearch for Children’s Cancer (CureSearch) and the additional $.75 is given to an organization chosen by each individual Iron Hill location. Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant partners with over 16 locally based organizations to give back to the communities in which they serve.

CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, a national non-profit foundation, drives innovation, eliminates research barriers, solves the field’s most challenging problems and annually funds clinical trials and scientific research questions that challenge to push the field closer to a cure for childhood cancer. This year, Iron Hill raised over $30,000 for CureSearch and another $30,000 donations for local charities within the communities where Iron Hill’s are located.
This year, Iron Hill also partnered with the Veteran’s Multi-Service Center in Philadelphia and the Upstate Veterans Alliance in Greenville, SC, as an initiative to give back to veterans. Guests were given the opportunity to purchase an Iron Hill gift card for a veteran or military personnel to be distributed in the tri-state and South Carolina region, and Iron Hill matched donations totaling over $2,500.
“At Iron Hill, community extends beyond our walls and into the neighborhoods that we serve” said Iron Hill CEO Kim Boerema. “This year, we were able to expand our usual charity partners and give even more, to those who have served our country. It’s extremely rewarding to be able to give back to our community, and we look forward to more charitable initiatives in the new year!”

It’s easy to get behind a brewery with that name regardless of the charities they donate to. But that’s still awesome.
