In its 20 years, Iron Hill Brewery has built itself an empire, an empire that’s virtually cornered the Philly suburb brewpub market. Twelve locations exist between Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, and come spring 2018, a 13th will be added to the line-up, but it won’t be in a suburb.
Number 13 will be 8,450 square feet of brewpub inside the upcoming East Market project, smack-dab in Center City (1150 Market Street), serving as the company’s first-ever urban location.
2SP Brewing may have been the upstart winning two medals at this weekend’s Great American Beer Festival but brewer Bob Barrar is hardly a stranger to medal winning success. Barrar won 20 GABF medals over 15 years for Iron Hill Brewery. This year, Barrar’s “The Russian” took home a gold medal in the Imperial Stout category and his Antonym, won a bronze for Belgian- and French-Style Ale.
Not a bad start for 2SP, which opened just over a year ago in Aston, Delaware County. Find 2SP beers at better beer bars across the region or at the tasting room at the brewery. The tasting room is now open seven days a week.
Iron Hill Brewery may have lost Barrar to his own brewery but the federation of brewpubs continued its winning ways. The Phoenixville location locked up a bronze medal for its Bridge Street Bok. It was the 20th year in a row that Iron Hill won at least one medal.
On Tuesday, August 2nd, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will open its 12th location in the region. The Huntingdon Valley location will be the first to house a beer garden. The outdoor bar and patio will have seating for 40 at communal tables. There will also be Adirondack chairs around the patio. The beer garden won’t be open when the doors officially open Tuesday at 5 p.m., but should open in the first half of August.
