Beer, Food and Giving Back: Iron Hill Columbia is Brewing with Purpose

COLUMBIA, S.C. (July 10, 2023) Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant officially opened its doors in the BullStreet District on Thursday, June 22 — bringing its focus of providing exceptional food, award-winning handcrafted beer and commitment to community to the heart of Columbia, S.C. Continuing its longstanding dedication to supporting local communities, Iron Hill has launched its GIVE 20 fundraising program and invites Midlands-area nonprofits to sign up online at Through the GIVE20 program, nonprofit participants will receive 20 percent of food sales for every table that presents the organization’s Give 20 coupon on a designated day.

“At Iron Hill, our commitment extends far beyond brewing exceptional beers and crafting remarkable dishes,” says Chris Westcott, CEO of Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant. “We firmly believe in the power of community and the importance of giving back. We recognize that our growth is intertwined with the success of the cities that welcome us, and it is our responsibility to be a positive force within these communities. We look forward to making a meaningful impact by supporting nonprofits throughout the Midlands.”

During Iron Hill Columbia’s ceremonial First Pour opening event, the organization presented a $30,000 donation to its long-standing philanthropic partner, CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, a national nonprofit that aims to drive innovation, eliminate research barriers and solve the field’s most challenging problems. Funds were raised collectively at all Iron Hill locations over the past year through the brewery & restaurant’s Triple Chocolate Hill dessert, of which $0.75 of each sale was donated to CureSearch. Since forming a partnership in 2004, Iron Hill has donated more than $350,000 to CureSearch.

The new Columbia location marks Iron Hill’s 21st establishment and its second in South Carolina, following the successful opening of Iron Hill Greenville in 2018. Spanning 7,500 square feet, the space features Iron Hill’s signature onsite brewing facility and scratch kitchen, with indoor and outdoor seating for over 400.
