Ironclad Brewery

The Ironclad class of ships were built in Wilmington’s ironically named Beery’s Shipyard during the Civil War. Ironclad’s founder began his career working on next generation capabilities for the Navy. The name Ironclad was selected as a remembrance of both Wilmington’s history and their founder’s career.

Ironclad is a large downtown venue which can be reserved for private events. Since opening its doors in February 2015, the venue has held over 1,000 events to include weddings, corporate parties, fundraisers, business networking, and birthday and anniversary celebrations. With 10,000-sq-ft and two large bars, the venue can accommodate events for up to 400 people. A public parking deck is across the street and several hotels are within a few blocks.
