Happy Anniversary at Iron Hill

If we weren't heading in the totally opposite direction today toward Harrisburg, we'd be driving over to Maple Shade to help the good folks of Iron Hill celebrate one year of breaking in to the 'Jersey' market. Congrats to Chris Lapierre and everyone involved. Have fun today!...some great beers, I see. Head over to Beer-Stained Letter for a video and more details. and, at his blog, Chris announces the special beers that will be pouring:
Dark Situation (Cask Conditioned) We set a couple of firkins of this aside after The Situation’s release party and this is the last one left. It’s a blend of The Situation (golden barleywine) and Russian Imperial Stout. The result is a complex marriage of rich, sweet specialty malt character and lots of American hop bitterness and aroma to balance it. 9.8% abv Christmas in July When the holidays were in full swing we filled a used bourbon barrel with our Winter Warmer (a strong dark ale finished with winter spices). It’s been sitting in there soaking up bourbony deliciousness since then. Jeff is kegging it off as we speak. 7.2% abv Vintage English Strong Ale Bold, rich, dark and malty, brewed with molasses and demerara sugar. 7.2% abv Flemish Red Ale Deep red to brown in color, this beer starts off malty, with a bit of caramel character and subtle chocolate notes, then finishes with a refreshing tartness. 5.0% abv LIMITED TAPPING!!! Bourbon Quadfather This one will be tapped at 3 pm, and probably gone by 3:15. Our dark Belgian Strong Ale aged in a used bourbon barrel for four months. Strong, complex malt flavors and yeast fruitiness are complimented by distinct bourbon and vanilla notes, served on nitrogen. 10.2% abv
