I want to like this place more than I do. It cannot decide if it is a restaurant or a brewery. The place is huge, 2 bars, lots of tables, outdoor seating on the sidewalk. Menu is pages long, portions are big, but not overly original nor impressive. I think it is focusing on the general public more than the beer crowd. Lots of 20-somethings - in West Chester. Beer is actually OK,. there are some standard beers always on, the Pig Iron Porter is good. Some special beers rotate in and out some really good, like the bourbon vanilla porter, some quite pedestrian. Service is generic, not always knowledgeable but friendly. They have a ful bar, and wine, which always surprises me in a brew-on-premise establishment.

The thing to know about Iron Hill is that each location is well coordinated with the others and so the Food menu is the same from place to place and the basic menu of house beers is the same although brewed and fresh at each location rather than brought in from elsewhere. Where the uniqueness of each location shines is in the liberty they allow each individual brewmaster to put on offer a line of beers of their own choosing. Their "quality control" exends to proper training of each server in what beers are available, etc. So your experience at each location should be pleasant and worth a visit. Plus your stand by beers from the master menu should be available and there should also be a list of beers at each location unique to that location.
