Iron Hill Celebrates National IPA Day

On Friday, August 2, beginning at 5 p.m., celebrate National IPA Day with Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant. IPA Day is officially celebrated on Thursday, August 1, but Iron Hill decided to extend the party into Friday to kick-off the weekend. The group will pour a different house-brewed IPA at each of their nine award-winning locations.

“As American craft brewers, the IPA is a style very near and dear to us – because craft brewing in the country really took off when beer lovers discovered that there was more to beer than light pilsners and set out to investigate fuller flavored styles, many of them beginning with IPAs,” says Director of Brewing Operations Mark Edelson.

Each location will pour a different IPA created by each Iron Hill brewer to celebrate IPA Day:
  • at Phoenixville, PA, Simcoe IPA, an American IPA brewed with Simcoe hops for a distinct pinecone-like aroma and medium body.
  • at Chestnut Hill, PA, Hop Addict IPA, a west coast style IPA brewed with a variety of hops including, Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo, Columbus and Citra, which impart flavors and aromas of citrus and tropical fruits.
  • at Lancaster, PA, Hop Stinger, a golden American IPA loaded with citrus-y hops for flavor and aroma, and brewed with 60 pounds of local honey.
  • at Maple Shade, NJ, G-Day IPA, an IPA hopped exclusively with New Zealand hops.
  • at Media, PA, Ultimate Warrior American IPA, American style IPA brewed with Warrior hops for bittering and Columbus, Chinook and Centennial for flavor and aroma.
  • at Newark, DE, Dela Where? IPA, deep golden medium bodied ale with pronounced hop bitterness, which gives way to a bouquet of citrusy American hop flavor and aroma.
  • at North Wales, PA, Summertime IPA, golden in color, medium bodied with an intense crisp citrus flavor and dry finish.
  • at West Chester, PA, Intergalactic IPA, A light-bodied, single hopped American IPA loaded with flavors and aromas of mango, pineapple, passion fruit, tangerine and grapefruit.
  • at Wilmington, DE, Yippee-Ki-PA, an American IPA with a robust hop flavor and an aroma of citrus and pine, and Hans Gruber, a Bohemian-style pilsner with a combination of American hops and classic Saaz hops.

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'.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:
