IRON HILL BREWERY & RESTAURANT IN LANCASTER
ANNOUNCES SPRING BREWMASTER’S DINNER
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.
