& event venue
North Carolina's New Hanover County and the City of Wilmington are rich in history and beauty. Ironclad Brewery has tapped into this by painstakingly revitalizing an historic building dating back to 1925 in the city's downtown. While all of the utilities within the building had to be replaced, the interior brick walls and roof have been kept intact. The 2nd story wood flooring that was installed in the mid-twentieth century when the building was a car dealership was removed piece by piece. The wood was then planed and reused within the brewery.
Much like the craftsmen that hand forged the Ironclad Class of ships at Beery's Shipyard in Wilmington during the Civil War, Ironclad's brewing staff take the same pride in their creations. Our brewers hand forge a wide range of craft beer. The 4 oz tasters are a great way to sample the different styles.
Ironclad is both a brewery & event venue. With over 10,000 square feet of space Ironclad can accommodate events for up to 500 people. As an event venue we also serve wine, liquor, cider, soda and juices!
