September 04, 2008 - Iron Hill Comes to New Jersey, Will Open in Maple Shade in May 2009
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, will open their eighth location in Maple Shade, New Jersey (124 East Kings Highway) in May 2009. The news was released exclusively to The Beer Yard this morning by founding partner Mark Edelson.

The site is currently home to a restaurant called Pasta Vino. and will accommodate 280 guests.

The new restaurant will join other Iron Hill outlets in Newark, DE; Wilmington, DE; Media, PA; West Chester, PA; North Wales, PA; Phoenixville, PA and Lancaster, PA.

Iron Hill management has long wanted to move into the New Jersey market. There was a tentative deal for a location there several years back which fell through, leading to the opening of the Wilmington location instead. Ironically, it was Wilmington where the company first wanted to open when it was founded in 1995, but the inability to find an appropriate site there led them to debut in Newark instead.

“We are so thrilled to open our eighth restaurant in lovely Maple Shade. We hope that New Jersey will be as delighted with our house-brewed beers and delicious cuisine as Pennsylvania and Delaware have been,” says Iron Hill founding partner Kevin Finn in a news release to be sent out later today. Kevin Davies is the third co-partner in Iron Hill, along with Davies and Edelson.

An executive chef and brewer for Maple Shade have not yet been selected.--JACK CURTIN
