iron hill brewery's oktoberfest

Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant recently celebrated their first-ever Oktoberfest celebration at their Phoenixville location, on Friday, October 1, fully equipped German beers aplenty, plates popping with bratwursts and Wiener Schnitzel, and even, German polka music and dancing!
Sure to be a great night out on Bridge Street, the Dish team (myself, included) decided an evening where local gents get donned in lederhosens was a "must-attend" in our books,  and we rolled out our red carpet to capture all the glamored Germanesque guests in their night's finest. (Scope out if we nabbed your mug, too, by clicking here.)

On the same day of the festival, Iron Hill tapped the seasonal pumpkin ale, and we couldn't help but snap some video of us raising our pints to experience such a seasonal concoction. Although we are rather silly in the video, Head Brewer Tim Stumpf's concoction was a crowd-pleaser. As a light, but nicely spiced blend, the Pumpkin Ale is ideal for a fall session beer.
Brick Oven Bread and Cheese Shoppe, located in the same structure as Iron Hill, was also celebrating the German season, preparing gorgeous soft pretzels baked in their hand-constructed brick oven. They couldn't help but also encourage diners to devour their homemade pizza, and nothing is as perfect as a toasty round out of our town's famous oven!
