With 25 years of brewing experience and 19 locations, Iron Hill is undoubtedly a regional mainstay. Doubling down on Chester County, the Delaware-based operation recently debuted a taphouse and canning operation in Exton.
At the cavernous location, the pop art and beer-barrel décor combine for a casual industrial atmosphere. The focused counter-service menu features small plates, bowls and handhelds, and beer from 26 taps is served by roaming staff. Burgers, mini corn dogs, an upside-down pizza, a hot pastrami sandwich, herb-crusted salmon and a nicely executed chilled Asian noodle bowl make for diverse pub fare.
Aside from signature suds like the Pig Iron Porter and Light and Vienna Red lagers, the latest rotating seasonals include the Girls Just Wanna Saison and Bourbon Dubbel. Among the other options: white sake sangria and a classic Manhattan. Canning operations can be viewed from the bar, and four-packs are an easy grab to go.
