Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant founders Kevin Finn, Mark Edelson and Kevin Davies will celebrate their 20th year in business with a company-wide toast at all 12 locations in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.

On November 11th at 5 p.m., guests will get  a complimentary eight ounce  pour of Ferrous: Fe20 Anniversary Ale, a Brett Saison brewed exclusively for the celebration.

In Newark,  their first location, all three owners will be on hand and will be joined by elected officials and state dignitaries. Ferrous: Fe20 Anniversary Ale was brewed exclusively for the 20th anniversary by Director of Brewery Operations Mark Edelson on site at the original Newark brewpub.


The brewery is named after a Newark landmark that was the site of iron mining. The iron theme is reflected in the names of some of the brewery’s brands.

Starting at 4 p.m., all 12 Iron Hill locations, including  Newark, will offer a  tap takeover featuring eight of their most award-winning beers – all eight medal-winners on draft at one location, for the first time ever.

The tap takeover will highlight Iron Hill’s first 20 years in business  while celebrating their future growth and expansion.

Iron Hill is believed to be  the largest and fastest-growing collection of brewpubs in the Mid-Atlantic region.  Of late ,the company has opened about one new location a year. Locations range from main streets in college towns to suburban shopping centers.

Iron Hill differs from other brewpubs by sticking with its own beer, rather than offering beer from other craft  or mega brewers.  Each location has its own brewer.

In August 2016, Iron Hill opened its  12th brewpub, in Huntingdon Valley,  PA. It aims to double in size over the next five years. Earlier in the year,the company   announced a partnership with A&M Capital Opportunities, a private equity firm based out of Greenwich, CT.

The partnership will allow Iron Hill to accelerate their  expansion from Massachusetts to Delaware and as far south as North Carolina.

“We are growing the company in a way that feels right to us, and we will never stray from the guiding principles that have made the past 20 years so special,” says Finn.

“Our focus is on running a great brewery and restaurant, from top-notch service to the freshest ingredients. We are truly humbled by the reception and loyalty from our guests over the last two decades, and we look forward to raising even more pints in new markets in the years to come,” Finn added.
