The craft beer scene is booming in Greenville and Iron Hill Brewery has decided to open their first location, outside the mid-Atlantic area, to the Upstate.
In 1996, home brewers Kevin Finn, Mark Edelson and restaurateur Kevin Davies decided to open their first location in Newark, DE; penning the name after the historic Revolutionary War summit in Delaware, where General George Washington fought the British in the Battle of Cooch’s Bridge (aka Battle of Iron Hill).
After opening 12 other locations throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Deleware, Iron Hill Brewery owners have brought their “made-from-scratch” upscale menu and on-site brewhouse to the Haywood Mall area.
Wide Variety of Craft Beer
With 15 draft taps, Eric Boice brings his 13 years of experience to the Greenville location as the chief brew-master.
To celebrate the Grand Opening, Iron Hill Brewery created the Upstate Kolsh. A full-bodied blonde ale with hints of pear.
Just in time for summer is the Iron Hill Light Lager. It is smooth, crisp and bright.
One of the most popular is the Hipster IPA. Brewed with wheat and oats, it is like a traditional New England IPA. But with hops added at the end of the brewing process, it has a pineapple, lemon, lighter feel.
My favorite would have to be the Pig Iron Porter. With hints of coffee, toffee, and chocolate, this well-balanced beer is smooth but slightly bitter at the end.
Although Iron Hill Brewery expects to make 900 barrels of craft beer in 2018, they also produced signature cocktails, using premium brands – such as…
- Bourbon Blossom – with Four Roses Bourbon
- Raspberry Lemonade – using Tito’s Vodka
- Cucumber Raspberry Cooler – mixed with Hendrick’s Gin
Made From Scratch Menu
Besides the in-house brewery and cocktail lounge area, a 250-person capacity, 7,500 square foot restaurant, with a patio is available for lunch and dinner.
But don’t expect your garden variety pub food; Iron Hill Brewery has an upscale American menu, with so many choices, even the most “picky-eaters,” will find something delicious to try.
Two of my favorite items are the Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls and the Hand-Cut Belgian-Style Fries.
Nothing is “pre-made,” or “frozen.” Everything is made from scratch, at the restaurant. The Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls are rolled, in-house and fried up to order. The fries are cut in-house and served with a creamy, delicious Siracha Mayonnaise.
Main Entrees include steak, fish, chicken, ribs, burgers, salads – even a Gluten-Friendly menu.
Make sure to save room for dessert!
