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.

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

---
Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!
