Iron Hill to open brewpub in Voorhees

It's No. 10 for the brewpub chain.

Iron Hill to open brewpub in Voorhees

Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has inked a lease for its 10th location and the second in South Jersey as it is taking a spot at Voorhees Town Center (nee Echelon Mall).

Opening is targeted for this winter.

Its 9th location, Chestnut Hill, seems to be going great guns.

In a statement, Iron Hill founding partner Kevin Finn said he and partners Kevin Davies and Mark Edelson were looking for a place with a vibrant community.

They've enlisted Sandvold Blanda Architecture + Interiors, which has designed the previous nine locations, to do the 250-seater. 

The operators of the former Catelli are opening a restaurant, Catelli Duo, at Voorhees Town Center this summer.

The Iron Hill will now lack one nearby competitor. The Firecreek Restaurant & Bar, which opened only last November in Voorhees Town Center, closed yesterday, as did its ancillary Doghouse Burgers shop. Contacted this morning, Firecreek owner Kevin Silverang said the spot - on an interior "loop road" in the Voorhees Town Center development - did not generate the anticipated foot traffic. The Firecreek/Doghouse in Downingtown, whose future also had been the subject of speculation, will remain open, Silverang told me.

Voorhees Town Center has started a farmer's market on site on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noonl, through Oct. 27.
