Not-so-micro brewery Iron Hill is coming to downtown Philadelphia, and will be housed in the mega East Market development, set to take up a whole block between Market and Chestnut streets.
According to Curbed, it’s the first Center City location for the brewery, joining another five in the Philadelphia area, all of which are out in the ‘burbs (there are another two close by in New Jersey).
Like Iron Hill’s other locations which have progressively popped up over the last 20 years from its home base in Newark, Delaware, brewing will be done on site — and with 8,450 square feet of space, there should be plenty of room for it. It is also set to have semi-private dining rooms. Washington, DC design firm Street Sense is on board to help carry out the project.
It’ll be located at 1150 Market Street, but won’t be ready until spring next year. The brewery will join Mom’s Organic Market in East Market, but given the mixed-use nature of the development and various renderings of the end goals for it, it seems likely that more food or dining-oriented venues will find a home in the residential-slash-commercial project.
