Iron Hill “Bails Out” customers with their Economic Stimulus Plan
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, the popular food and drink destination with seven area locations, offers guests their own “Economic Stimulus Package”: five times a week, at least one table of guests will be randomly selected to receive a “bailout,” meaning that Iron Hill will buy them their meal.
“People are watching their wallets now more than ever, so the least we can do is reward a lucky few with a great meal on us,” says Director of Culinary Operations Kevin Davies. “This is a lighthearted gesture that we hope will make people smile in these trying times.”
At least five times per week, one table will receive, instead of a check, a card (see below) announcing that they have been bailed out and that their meal is on the house. All seven Iron Hill locations are participating in the bailout; some are offering bailouts more frequently than five per week, as well.
In late 2008, Iron Hill debuted a brand new menu of fresh, flavorful cuisine that ideally complements their award-winning beers. The new menu includes more than twice as many dishes as the previous incarnation, and covers a variety of cuisines including Asian, Italian and American. It has been enormously well-received by diners and reviewers alike.
“We’re proud of the food we serve, and proud of how well it pairs with our beers,” says owner Kevin Finn. “Our guests wanted more diverse options when dining with us, and we’re thrilled to have come up with so many delicious additions to our menu. It means that we can satisfy their appetites now better than ever.”
The new menu includes items in 14 categories: Housemade Soups, Salad Starters, Big Salads, Appetizers, Shared Plates, Artisan Pizzas, Burgers, Healthy Selections, Sandwiches, Brewhouse Favorites, Beverages, Chicken, Seafood, Pasta, Steaks, and Sides and Add-Ons. Menu items range in price from $3.95 to $27.95. The selections are incredibly comprehensive, with many favorites from the previous menu returning and every section supplemented with additional choices.
Critics and readers have heaped praise on Iron Hill; since 1996, they have consistently been recognized for their outstanding beers and cuisine, accruing more than 100 “Best of” awards from regional magazines. Their hand-crafted beers have also won acclaim and in total, they have received 39 medals from the three most prestigious beer events, the Great American Beer Festival, 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. An eighth location, in Maple Shade, NJ, is planned for 2009. All seven locations are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
