Iron Hill Brewery Gets in on the Beer Garden Game

The award-winning brewpub opens tonight in Huntingdon Valley, PA

If you're reading this, then Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in Huntingdon Valley, PA is already open.

Today marks the grand opening of the popular suburban brewpub's 12th installment in Montgomery County's Huntingdon Valley Shopping Center (785 Huntingdon Pike).

Co-founders Kevin Finn, Kevin Davies and Mark Edelson have employed Doug Marchakitus (previously of the North Wales location) to handle all brewing operations as Huntingdon Valley's head brewer, which means an HV's Iron Hill gets its very own in-house-beer: Hopicana, a citrusy IPA brewed with Chinook hops and spritzed up with orange zest.

Inside, the aesthetic is pretty similar to the sister locations: an open kitchen connected to a spacious dining room, with all eyes on the glass-enclosed microbrewery behind the bar.

But the bigger news here is that Huntingdon Valley's opening also launches Iron Hill's first-ever beer garden in its 20 year history. The outdoor bar patio comes complete with a 16-tap draft system, communal seats and tables, and what seems to be the official chair of all Philadelphia beer gardens: Adirondack chairs. The garden is open year-round, weather permitting, and canopied in case of rain.
