photo_ironhillIron Hill Brewery which opened its 11th location late last year in Ardmore has announced its next location. Iron Hill founders Kevin Finn, Mark Edelson and Kevin Davies have picked the Huntingdon Valley for their location number 12. Expected to open in early 2016, the brewpub will be located in the Huntingdon Valley Shopping Center at Huntingdon Pike and Rockledge Avenue.

And if you’re anything like me, know that Huntingdon Valley, isn’t some far off land but is just outside of the city line, near Fox Chase and east of Jenkintown.

Iron Hill began in Newark, Delaware back in 1996 and has expanded regularly over the last 19 years. The brewpub chain has regularly brought home awards from the Great American Beer Festival, this past year saw them bring home three.
