Ardmore has become a beer geeks destination with the rise of Tired Hands Brewing. The tiny brewery was just named to First We Feast’s 12 Bucket-List Breweries That Every Beer Lover Should Visit. The Main Line town has some other things happening as well. The eleventh Iron Hill Brewery location, grandly opened on Sunday at 44 Greenfield Avenue, just a block from Tired Hands. And speaking of Tired Hands, the brewery continues to make progress on its second Ardmore location. The larger location’s brewhouse was just delivered yesterday and the brewery will open in the first half of 2015.
The Saint James is closing. The much ballyhooed restaurant from Rob Wasserman (Rouge, 500º) and Michael Schulson (Sampan, Izakaya) opened in 2012 but was slammed by critics. Schulson left the partnership earlier this year and Wasserman will close the restaurant on December 30th. Michael Klein reports that the space will undergo six weeks of renovations before producing what Wasserman says will be a “‘very family-friendly'” restaurant.

The Iron Hill Brewing Co.’s Ardmore location has been in the plans since at least December of 2012. And though it looked like it might not happen at all for a time, the brewing equipment has arrived on site today.
The brewpub will be located at 44 Greenfield Avenue and will be the eleventh location for the chain, which stretches from Newark, Delaware to Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
The brewpub is aiming to open before the end of the year and has named Paul Rutherford, formerly of Iron Hill Chestnut Hill as its head brewer. That move set off a chain reaction in the Iron Hill family. Chris LaPierre, who opened the Maple Shade location has moved to Chestnut Hill and Andrew Rubenstein will be brewing at Maple Shade, with Iron Hill Voorhees head brewer Kevin Walter overseeing both locations. Got it? Good.
