Iron Hill Brewery, which is normally opening up locations at a break-neck pace, is jumping into off-premise sales for the first time, making its beer available in retail stores starting this week. Now pumping out beer in a new large-scale production facility in Exton, Pa., Iron Hill Brewery is partnering with NKS Distributors in Delaware and is available for purchase at retailers statewide. Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey retailers will soon be carrying Iron Hill beer too.
Not that they planned it this way, but this is perfect timing considering the state of on-premise beer right now.
“We could not be more excited to offer our locally brewed beer to retailers and expand our audience beyond our 17 brewery & restaurant locations. The Exton production brewery is a long, sought after dream of sharing our scratch beer in a way that is more convenient and local, bringing the Iron Hill experience home,” says Mark Edelson, Co-Founder and Director of Brewery Operations for Iron Hill.
Iron Hill is kicking things off with its best-selling year-round beers including Sweet Leaf IPA, Hipster IPA, and Philly Phavorite IPA in local retail outlets. A rotating selection of IPAs, including Kryptonite Double IPA, and seasonal beers like Reindeer’s Revenge, will round out the initial portfolio offering. Four-pack 16oz cans of Iron Hill beer have a suggested retail price starting at $11.99 but may vary by location and brand.
“Entering into the retail market is another milestone in Iron Hill’s growth and a testament to the brand’s strength and guest loyalty that has been nurtured for over two decades. Customers know that Iron Hill means high-quality great tasting beer, and now it will be even easier to purchase and enjoy,” says Kim Boerema, Chief Executive Officer for Iron Hill. “To see this dream come true for Mark and the entire brewery team has been so rewarding, and it’s his passion of and pride for Iron Hill that has made this all possible.”
