Modern brewpub on Newark’s old Main Street, lots of interesting places nearby. Decent food, beers were above average for rhe chain. Very young crew, all enthusiastic. Don’t forget to ask for the bottle list.

A worthy stop if you are in the neighborhood. It is nice to visit the first Iron Hill location, though they do not carry as many beers as other locations. The place is well decorated. The staff is helpful and friendly. The food was really good - I had the beer onion and bacon flatbread with gruyere. Good prices.

Located on the main drag of Newark near the Universityof Delaware campus. It’s one of the smaller of the Iron Hill Brewpubs but, perhaps, the one that feels most like a neighborhood pub. We found parking on the street and there are parking lots nearby. It’s the one that started it all so there’s lots of dark wood, brushed steel, and mood lighting. They had their standard 5 beers plus 5 seasonals. The beers tend to be solid but rarely spectacular. The food is usually very good. Unfortunately the pizza oven was broken but they have a wideranging menu and the chicken Caesar salad was tasty. I don’t know if it’s a destination place but it’s worth a stop if you’re already at state line liquors.

Stopped by around 11PM on a Wednesday night. Place was pretty deserted, but there were a few people around. Nice ambience... dark woods, and a nice smoky aroma, didn’t see a fireplace so I guess it was from a smoker. Located in a downtown area and while I found parking VERY easily, at a busier time I could see it being tricky. The beers ranged from slightly underwhelming in the styles you’d expect to be underwhelming to a Belgian Black that was one of the best beers I’ve had in a while. 8 bucks for a sampler. Didn’t try the food. Bartender was efficient and friendly. Nice stop. I’d have liked to stay longer.

A nice Iron Hill brewpub in downtown Newark. It had the standard 5 Iron Hill taps plus a lot of seasonals (I think around 5, plus the seasonal belgian and something else). I had a delicious winter warmer and seasonal IPA. This is my 3rd Iron Hill location and it is on par with the others (Wilmington and Lancaster). Perhaps a slightly cozier atmosphere and better lit. Slightly on the pricy side, but standard Iron Hill pricing. Another great Iron Hill!

Nice little brewpub in downtown Newark, DE. First location I’ve visited of the chain. Standard brewpub appearance with a decent sized bar and plenty of tables. Pretty nice selection of their beers on tap and one cask. Beers were mostly above average with a couple stand outs. Food was good with a variety of things to choose from. 4 ounce taster pours are available individually for $1.50 or as part of a sampler set. Good value and service. There are a few pay-to-park lots with free validation available from Iron Hill for up to 90 minutes. Could definitely see myself coming back whenever I’m in that area of Delaware.

Used to sit out on the porch here when it was warm - one of the good spots on Main Street for watching parades. Was borderline out of my price range during those great undergrad days, so a visit to Iron Hill was always "special." Good range of beer, very good food. Often crowded with yuppies. Love how they reward 5K winners.

Nice little patio in an active part of town on Main St. Big square bar, but the place feels a bit stale and commercial over all. The info on the beers being brewed by the brew house was cool though. 1 cask offering when I was there. Food was good with some interesting options.
