Ironshield Brewing is located at 457 N. Chesnut St. Lawrenceville Georgia. This brewery features a 40-foot serving bar and multiple viewing areas of the brewhouse along with covered outdoor seating and a Biergarten.
Opened in the midst of a global pandemic, Ironshield Brewing co-founders Dave Rice and Glen Sprouse are successfully working on a business model that bucked many current beer trends.
Working with the city of Lawrenceville, the duo purchased a sprawling 56,000-square-foot building on North Chestnut Street that formerly housed the Gwinnett Daily News. And they built it out big — installing a fully automated, 50-barrel Sprinkman/Krones brewhouse, with an array of state-of-the-art bells and whistles, and a high-tech control room that ensures quality and efficiency.
Both Rice and Sprouse are Atlanta food and beverage veterans. Rice worked for Coca-Cola in packing and quality assurance. Sprouse was a pioneer of the craft beer scene, and the co-founder and brewer at Phoenix Brewing (later 5 Seasons Brewing) in Sandy Springs.These leaders are passionate about the art of creating a great beer, the camaraderie of the craft brewing industry, and the joy of sharing it with all of you.
