Our Story

Nothing’s More Local

than beer brewed ten feet from your table

Nothing’s Fresher

than every dressing, every stock, every sauce made from scratch. Every day.

Nothing’s Truer to Who We Are

than every dressing, every stock, every sauce made from scratch. Every day.

Trends will come and go, but great beer and delicious food will never go out of style. That’s why we stock our kitchen with the freshest ingredients to create the most delicious food, entirely from scratch. Our brewery and kitchen work in tandem with one another, helping to allow our staff to inspire recipes, from burgers and sauces to pale ales and stouts. Our kitchen is our brewery and vice versa, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Work on the Walls

We’re not just great beer and food – we are ambiance!

The murals at all Iron Hill’s are unique and created by acclaimed artist Jeff Schaller, who’s pieces use familiar iconography to evoke memories and emotions that provoke thought from his audiences.

And that’s why we love his work – it’s ability to spark conversations is what we want in our dining rooms. That’s why in 2002, we commissioned to use the walls of our Wilmington Riverfront location as his next canvas to create an atmosphere perfect for enjoying the Iron Hill experience. It was such a hit that we’ve continued to work with him at every location since!
