Iron Hill Brewery to Open Brewpub in Hershey, Pennsylvania

WILMINGTON, Del. – Founders Kevin Finn, Mark Edelson and Kevin Davies announce they have signed a lease for their 10th Pennsylvania location of Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant (Iron Hill) at West Chocolate Ave in the newly constructed Hershey Towne Square. With an anticipated opening date in late 2018/early 2019, Iron Hill Hershey is located just east of the Pennsylvania State Capitol, Harrisburg, and will enhance Iron Hill’s reputation as one of the region’s outstanding families of brewery/restaurants.

Located in the heart of downtown Hershey, the restaurant/brewery is only a four-minute drive from Hersheypark and nearby ZooAmerica. The 9,000-square foot space is the largest in Hershey Towne Square and will house an on-site brewing facility and seating for up to 290 including a bar area and additional outdoor space.

Iron Hill Hershey will join in the amusements, world-class golf courses, museums, and outlet shopping at one of Pennsylvania’s most popular tourist destinations. “The Sweetest Place on Earth” will get a bit tastier as Iron Hill brings its from-scratch foods and award-winning beers to the area.

“Iron Hill is thrilled to open our 10th Pennsylvania store in Hershey in 2019,” said Kevin Finn, co-founder of Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant. “It’s an exciting place to expand, and share our passion for our scratch kitchen and craft brewery. With over 10 million visitors to Hershey per year, we look forward to expanding dining and drinking opportunities in one of the region’s most visited areas.”

Iron Hill will be joining Starbucks and Primanti Bros. at Hershey Towne Square,the new mixed-use development conveniently positioned along West Chocolate Avenue (Rt. 422) and Ridge Road which is considered to be “Main & Main” in Hershey, PA. The project includes a retail center and a 60,000-square foot, multi-story office building. Hershey Towne Square sits less than 1 mile from Hersheypark, Hershey’s Chocolate World and surrounding destinations.

“We are thrilled Iron Hill will join us as an anchor tenant in our new development project.  Looking at both the local resident base and annual tourist flow in Hershey, the broad appeal of Iron Hill’s menu and commitment to high quality ingredients and service make them the perfect complement to the project,” explains Ed Fetter, Senior Vice President of RVG Management & Development Co.

About Iron Hill

Named after the historic Revolutionary War landmark in Delaware, where General George Washington battled the British, Iron Hill is among the most enduringly successful craft brewers in the United States. Their 21-year consecutive medal winning streak at national and international competitions is the longest by any independent craft brewery.

Founded by home brewers Kevin Finn, Mark Edelson and restaurateur Kevin Davies in Newark, DE in 1996, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has blossomed from one restaurant and brewery to 12 locations up and down the East Coast, including Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and soon to be South Carolina. Each brewery/restaurant has their own scratch kitchen and craft brewery, allowing individual chefs and brewers the creativity to pair the freshest ingredients with the highest quality grains and hops. For 21 years, Iron Hill has incorporated beer in everything they do. As a result, Finn, Edelson and Davies are viewed as innovative business leaders in their home state of Delaware and in the Mid-Atlantic region. They started Iron Hill at a time when small breweries were just beginning to gain mass appeal around the country and their entrepreneurial, forward-thinking helped build them into what they are to date. Each individual location has their own head brewer. Each location dedicates itself to the freshest ingredients and friendly atmosphere for all age groups – helping change overall perceptions about brewpubs one meal, one pint, one community at a time.
