Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant has restarted construction on its forthcoming Buckhead outpost following “disruptions due to COVID-19 shutdowns,” and is nearing completion with the arrival of its brew tanks, which were installed on Saturday morning, a company spokesperson in an email Monday told What Now Atlanta. Iron Hill is now slated to open in mid-December, 2020, they said.

Head Brewer Alex Vanderlek and his team installed the brewing equipment, which included a mash tun, heating exchange, large brewing tanks, and a grain mill. “With this equipment, we’ll have at least six signature beers at all times, and will be able to brew 50 or 60 seasonal brews throughout the year, including Belgians, German lagers, and American styles,” Vanderlek said in a prepared statement. “The more people drink, the more we can brew!”

Upon arrival, it takes two weeks to get brew tanks fully functioning and operational and it takes one to four weeks for beer to be fully fermented once it enters the fermentation tank, Vanderlek said. The brewery at Iron Hill Buckhead hopes to produce 800 to 900 barrels of beer annually.

Located at EDENS’ Lenox Marketplace, at 3535 Peachtree Road NE, Iron Hill Buckhead will be the brewery’s first location in Georgia. The company’s second location is in the works in Dunwoody.
