Iron Hill Lancaster - Spring Brewmaster's Dinner

19 March 2009

From Jennie Hatton:


LANCASTER, PA – At 6 pm on Wednesday, March 25, the region’s most celebrated brewery and dining destination, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, (781 Harrisburg Pike) will host a Brewmaster’s Dinner featuring the beers of head brewer Paul Rutherford and the cuisine of Chef Robert Willis. The five-course meal will cost $50 per person, including food and a beer with each course. This special dinner is by reservation only.

“This is a fun opportunity to celebrate both our kitchen and our brewery by giving our guests a chance to enjoy some great pairings,” says Chef Willis.

The menu, which Rutherford and Willis collaborated on to create, includes: an amuse of Deconstructed Duck and Apple Strudel with confit of duck leg, Calvados flambee green apples and crème fraiche, paired with Biere de Garde, a classic French farmhouse beer with malt accents and slight fruit and spice notes; Roasted Wild Mushroom Soup with Asiago crouton, paired with Pig Iron Porter, with distinct roasted and chocolate notes balanced by a slight bitterness; Arugula Salad with roasted beets, panko crusted goat cheese and walnut vinaigrette; Lancaster County “Mixed Grill”, featuring beef tournado, domestic lamb chops and slow-roasted pork belly alongside glazed root vegetables and Yukon gold-celeriac puree, paired with Abbey Dubbel, brewed in the style of a Belgian monastery with aromas of plums and pears and sweetness on the palate that is balanced by nuances of fruit and spice; and for dessert, Chocolate Molten Cake with vanilla ice cream and chocolate ganache paired with Russian Imperial Stout.

“It’s a great way for people to learn about the many different beer styles and flavors that are always brewing here,” says Rutherford.

Since 1996, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has consistently been recognized for its outstanding beers and cuisine, accruing more than 100 “Best of” awards from regional magazines. Their hand-crafted beers have also won acclaim from the GABF, and in total, they have received 38 medals from the three most prestigious beer events, the GABF, World Beer Cup and Real Ale Festival.

Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has seven locations, in Newark, DE; Wilmington, DE; Media, PA; West Chester, PA; North Wales, PA; Phoenixville, PA and Lancaster, PA. Their eighth location will open in Maple Shade this spring. All seven locations are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
