My first Iron Hill Brewery and I wouldn't say that I was over or underwhelmed. Maybe just perfectly whelmed. It is a really nice space and two days before xmas the place was packed. There were a ton of kids so maybe that detracted from the overall vibe for me. Had about 10-11 beers on tap, I tried a intersting take on a saison, Permanent Midnight, and although it wasn't a homerun, you could appreciate the effort and quality that went into the brewing. The service was excellent and the food was quite good. I thought everything was overpriced by about 10-15% but maybe that just means I am getting old. I would definetly return to this or other Iron Hill efforts.

Sat at the bar and got very friendly and helpful service. We decided to try share a flight and then each had a pint. I didn't love any of the beers until I tried the house Wit, which was very, very good. They also had some kind of run-of-the-mill red that was very tasty to have with food. The appear to have a standard menu of beers that are always on and a rotating list of the rest. Their website can let you know ahead of time what's on now and what's coming up.

The food menu was ridiculously extensive, if you can't eat here, you can't eat. Our bartender really knew the menu and steered us in the right direction. For the meal, we chose a selection of appetizers, to get a feel for the place. None of them were a disappointment. They weren't huge helpings, but they were well-prepared and tasty.

The only downside was when a table full of children were seated behind us, in the bar area. I saw two indoor dining areas and a lot of outdoor seating but no, the raucous children were seated in what should have been the 'adult' area of the restaurant. I'll never understand why restaurant managers choose to alienate clientele who want some adult time out. Can't the bar area be 18+?

Beer selection is limited to those beers brewed in-house. However, they are very good with a wide range of styles. Food is high quality, nice selection, but a bit pricey. Excellent service.

Pretty nice restaurant space. Received two beer menus upon arrival; one year-round, one seasonals. Altogether they had about 16 different beers on tap. I like that the flights can be made up of both year rounds and seasonals with no upcharge. Ended up getting 2 flights, 8 4oz samples for $12. Not too bad. Food was solid, but a bit high on the price. We ended up choosing this place instead of spring house due to the reviews and the fact iron hill is more kid-friendly. Ended up being a good choice.
