The highly anticipated Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant will open its doors to the public on November 19th at 5:00 p.m. This will be the brewery’s 16th location on the east coast, and their 10th in Pennsylvania. Located in the heart of Downtown Hershey within the Hershey Towne Square at 101 West Chocolate Avenue, Iron Hill Hershey is the largest tenant and occupies 9,000 sq. ft. in the new mixed-use development by RVG Management and Development.
Iron Hill Hershey boasts a seating capacity of 290, outdoor dining, and the ability to produce 900 barrels of their award-winning craft beer annually. Hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.
The Iron Hill Hershey location will be managed by industry veteran Bill DeVinney, who has spent the past six years leading numerous Iron Hill locations across a variety of leadership roles and will spearhead the efforts of Hershey’s 100+ member team.
Known for menu items prepared entirely from scratch and paired with beer brewed a few feet from the table, Iron Hill Hershey will provide the area with both cuisine and fresh craft beer in a fun, upscale casual environment. Signature and seasonal beers as well as those exclusive to Hershey are available year-round, brewed on-site. Craft beer enthusiasts can expect the award-winning signature Vienna Red™ Lager, Ore House IPA and White Iron® Wit, in addition to unique local beer, such as the Cocoa Porter and seasonal beers, like Reindeer’s Revenge. Deliciously creative fare prepared onsite include Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls, Luau Shrimp, and a Voodoo Chicken Flatbread. A rotating weekly feature menu offering beer and food items showcasing fresh, seasonal ingredients will be introduced in early 2019.
The interior of Iron Hill Brewery features floor-to-ceiling windows to usher in natural light, an open kitchen and glass walled-brewery positioned near the bar, and warm yellow, gold, and rust hues contrasted by pop art murals. Sleek industrial vaulted ceilings covered in copper-toned corrugated metal are offset by large black circular chandeliers gently lighting the dining room and bar areas. Located in the middle of the restaurant, a large garage door separates the bar from the patio and can be lifted during warmer weather for inclusive indoor/outdoor seating.
In addition to their brand-wide donation to CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, and as part of Iron Hill’s philanthropy and commitment to the communities they serve, the brewery and restaurant in Hershey will be collaborating with Cocoa Packs to donate $0.75 from each Triple Chocolate Hill dessert sold in order to help fund the organization’s mission to distribute supplemental food during weekends, holidays and summers to students who benefit from school meal programs.
“This has been an incredible year for Iron Hill, and we’re truly humbled and excited to end it with yet another location in Pennsylvania,” says Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder Kevin Finn. “We love what we do every single day and hope it shines through in all of the vibrant communities we serve – Hershey being the newest on our growing list. We look forward to expanding the dining and gathering opportunities for both local residents and to the millions of visitors who travel to this region.”
