A new brewery and scratch kitchen are coming to Buckhead.

Delaware-based Iron Hill Restaurant & Brewery is slated to open at EDENS' Lenox Marketplace at 3535 Peachtree Road NE next year.

The Buckhead location will mark the 18th overall for Iron Hill, part of its “20 by 20” initiative, which will see 20 locations open nationally by 2020.

In addition to Delaware, Iron Hill also owns locations in states including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and South Carolina.

The 7,770 square-foot Atlanta Iron Hill will feature an on-site brewing facility, as well as seating for approximately 250 in the bar area and dining room, plus additional patio seating.

While the menu for each Iron Hill is different, most include a selection of appetizers, salads, soups, steaks, vegetarian sides, burgers, entrees including crab cakes and chicken pot pie and desserts. Many locations also offer kids menus and gluten allergy friendly options.

Beers varieties on tap include IPAs, lagers, porters and Belgian-style brews.

Following the opening of Iron Hill Greenville in South Carolina, Iron Hill’s chairman of the board and director of development Kevin Finn said Georgia was an aspirational location.

“After we were welcomed in South Carolina with open arms, we knew it was time to explore more of the south, and we have been eyeing Atlanta for some time, waiting for the right opportunity and location,” Finn said in a prepared statement. “Buckhead is a major commercial and financial center in Atlanta, and given its residential appeal, we knew this neighborhood was a perfect next step.”

Iron Hill will partner with Boulder, Colorado-based Bray Architecture to design the brewery and restaurant.

Founded in 1996 by Finn,  Mark Edelson and restaurateur Kevin Davies, Iron Hill was named for the historic Revolutionary War landmark in Delaware, where George Washington battled the British.

Iron Hill joins a growing list of breweries announced for metro Atlanta including Fire Maker Brewing, Candler Rail Brewery, Round Trip Brewing and Biggerstaff Brewing Company.

Recently opened metro Atlanta breweries and brewpubs include Sceptre Brewing Arts in OakhurstHalfway Crooks in SummerhillThe Lost Druid Brewery in Avondale Estates; and Glover Park Brewery in Marietta.
