Cast Iron is a bold, tough, industrial typeface that will look great on much more than your hipster logo. The letterforms are easy to read, while maintaining the condensed pacing and tall format. Cast Iron was designed by Jeremy Vassey, a brand designer and typophile who sometimes goes by Hustle Supply Co on Creative Market. According to Jeremy:

Originally, I created Cast Iron to be a stand alone free font. But I loved using it, so I thought I would expand the family to 4 weights and 3 finishes (Clean, Rounded, Rough).

The standard condensed version of the font is free, but for only $15 you can grab the whole set, which is a steal. Cast Iron also plays nice with many of his other fonts, all of which can be found on Creative Market for a great price.
