Iron Hill Firkin February Polar Bear Party
Media, PA – On Friday, February 4, at 5 p.m., head brewer Bob Barrar of Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will kick off their annual Firkin February beer series with a special Polar Bear Party on the Patio.
Iron Hill guests will enjoy the brewery’s acclaimed Winter Warmer outside on the patio as Barrar mans a Dunk Tank, with opportunities to dunk him available to all guests and proceeds benefitting the March of Dimes. Firkin February will continue every Friday until February 25, with a different Iron Hill beer or beers available each week on a pay-as-you-go basis.
“We’re passionate about two things: great beer and food, and giving back to our community,” says Barrar, who will attend the Polar Bear Party sporting little more than swim trunks. “This special kick-off event is a fun way to combine them and a festive, altruistic start to our February Firkin Friday events.”
Friday, February 11: Bourbon Chocolate Pumpkin Ale Release, celebrating the new ale with robust vanilla and bourbon notes, followed by pumpkin spice and a hint of caramel. ($6.50 for 12 oz.)
Friday, February 18: Belgian Face-Off, featuring Noel, with rich roast and chocolate notes and a background of toasted sweet bread, banana and pear, vs. Smokin’ Blonde, a Belgian-style blonde ale with biscuit-like character and a subtle, sweet smoke flavor from the use of smoked malts. ($6.00 for 12 oz.)
Friday, February 25: Mocha Porter Release, celebrating the new porter, brewed with smooth Guatamalan coffee and rich dark chocolate for a layered flavor of vanilla and the rich taste of Iron Hill’s classic Pig Iron Porter. ($6.00 for 12 oz.)
