Iron Hill Sending Summer Out In Style This Thursday And Friday

On Thursday, September 20, the second-to-last day of summer, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant (130 East Bridge Street, 610-983-9333) will bid the season a fond farewell with their Smokin’ Summer Send-Off. With a special menu of smoked foods and beers, evocative of classic summer barbecues, the event will take place from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. and again on Friday, September 21.

“As we gear up for fall – with cooler weather, heartier foods and fuller-flavored beers,” says Head Brewer Tim Stumpf. “This menu features the richness of fall’s food and drink, as well as the best of the summer.”

Featured beers, available on a pay-as-you-go basis, will include: Rauchbier, a Bamburg, Germany-style amber lager made with beechwood-smoked malt for a distinct smoked character in both aroma and flavor; Rauchweizenbock, a Bamburg, Germany-style dark, strong wheat ale brewed with just a touch of smoked malt, adding complexity and depth to a subtly fruit-y and chocolate-y beer; Smokin’ Brunette, a sweet, lightly chocolate malt-tasting beer with subtle fruit and spice from Belgian yeast and moderate cherrywood smoke character; and Smokin’ Blonde, a Belgian-style blonde ale with biscuit-like character and a subtle sweet smoke flavor from the use of smoked malts.

Featured dishes, all created especially to pair with the smoked beers, will include: Sweet Corn Soup with bacon-corn relish and chile oil; House-Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Toasts with red onion, capers and baby arugula on whole grain bread; Beer-Braised Pork Belly with caramelized fennel, onions, roasted beet puree and braising jus; Chile-Dusted North Atlantic Salmon with drunken pinto beans and chorizo, pineapple salsa and chipotle-honey glaze; and Smoked Cream Cheese Tart, puff pastry with almond crumb topping and fresh berries. Dishes range in price from $4.50 to $22.95.

Every Sunday, Iron Hill Phoenixville serves a $21.95 “Prime Time” Dinner from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m., with a choice of prime rib or seared salmon, plus a garden salad or cup of soup and a pint of house beer or a glass of house wine. Happy Hour is held Thursday and Friday from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., with specials including $3 house beers and $4 seasonal beers, seasonal drinks and house wine, served throughout the bar and cocktail areas. Iron Hill also offers a daily take-out special of two pizzas and a growler of house beer to-go for just $25.

Founded by home brewers Mark Edelson and Kevin Finn and restaurateur Kevin Davies in Newark, DE in 1996, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant is the region’s fastest-growing restaurant group, blossoming from one restaurant and brewery to nine locations across the mid-Atlantic. Each is dedicated to producing and serving top-quality hand-crafted beers and cuisine in a warm and hospitable setting, and all are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Their acclaimed beers have accumulated a wealth of awards from the nation’s top beer festivals, and their restaurants have earned more than 100 “Best of” nods from local and national publications.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
