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.
