We told you HERE only a couple of weeks ago that Ivanhoe Park Brewing Co. (Website) had purchased the assets of the recently shuttered Deadwords Brewing Company. At the time we didn’t know much about their plans for the space but we now have a name and a concept to share.

The new Ivanhoe Park Lager House (Instagram) is expected to open in just a couple of weeks with a soft opening date announcement pending any day now, but it’s likely to be June 12, the same day as the U.S. Men’s National Team soccer match against Brazil at Camping World Stadium.

. According to Glenn Closson, the founder of Ivanhoe Park Brewing Co., the new concept will focus on traditional lager styles like Kolsch Wheels, Side Pull Taps, Slow Pour Pilsner, and Milk Tubes, alongside their already popular array of ales, stouts, IPAs, and seasonal brews. Select Deadwords Brew recipes will also be featured on a case-by-case basis.

  • Kolsch Wheels – Enjoy the refreshing, slightly fruity taste of Kolsch beer served in traditional stange glasses, offering an authentic German beer experience.
  • Side Pull Taps – This unique pouring method creates a smooth, creamy head and brings out the nuanced flavors of our lagers.
  • Slow Pour Pilsner – The slow pour technique ensures a dense, aromatic foam and a crisp, clean beer, leaning into the purity and precision of a true Pilsner.
  • Milk Tubes – A playful yet sophisticated way to enjoy lagers, adding a frothy, milky texture to enhance the overall sensory experience.

Ivanhoe Park Brewing has been using Brew Hub in Lakeland to handle a large percentage of their distribution product, but with the acquisition of the Deadwords facility they will be bringing it all back in-house.

The kitchen will continue to serve food but at the time of this post we hadn’t heard what sort of menu they’ll be serving.
