“The Iron” Is Coming To Chifa For A Special Beer Dinner
Chifa Hosts Local Brewing Powerhouse Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant
Philadelphia, PA – On Thursday, November 18 at 7 p.m., Chifa will host the latest in their ongoing series of Craft Beer Dinners, welcoming local brewing powerhouse Iron Hill Brewery and head brewer Chris LaPierre from their Maple Shade, NJ location.
Guests will enjoy four-courses of Chef Jose Garces’ inspired Latin-Asian cuisine paired with LaPierre’s handcrafted beers. The cost will be $65 per person, excluding tax and gratuity, and reservations are required.
“Iron Hill beers almost are never available outside of their eight brewpubs, so this is a rare and exciting opportunity for anyone who hasn’t made it to one of their locations to sample their amazing ales and lagers,” says Chef Garces. “I’m looking forward to showcasing some of the finest our kitchen has to offer alongside some terrific, locally produced beers.”
The enticing menu will include:
Hopuka Ceviche with sunchoke leche de tigre, sunflower tuile, pickled fresno and sweet potato, paired with Rising Sun IPA, a spicy, citrus pale ale brewed with Sorachi Ace hops;
Peruvian Stew with root vegetables, chorizo, braised beef and rabbit loin, paired with Victoria’s Bitter, a traditional, easy-drinking English pub ale with copper color, noticeable malt flavor and floral, bitter hop finish;
Roast Pig with apple-porter glaze, spicy wilted baby black kale and pork-porter humita, paired with Pig Iron Porter, a dark beer with roasted chocolate notes and slight bitterness;
Five-Spice Bread Pudding with ginger-pecan ice cream and malted chocolate sauce, paired with Weizenbock, a full-bodied ale with a bready malt character and banana and clove notes.
Founded in Newark, DE in 1996, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant is the region’s fastest-growing brewpub group, blossoming to eight locations across the mid-Atlantic. Each is dedicated to producing and serving top-quality hand-crafted beers and cuisine in a warm and hospitable setting. Their acclaimed beers have accumulated a wealth of awards from the nation’s top beer festivals.
Since March 2010, Chef Jose Garces has invited regional breweries to pair their brews alongside Chifa’s Latin-Asian cuisine. Invited breweries have included Victory Brewing Company, Flying Fish Brewing Company, Dogfish Head, Stoudt’s Brewing Company, Sly Fox Brewery, Yards Brewing Company and Weyerbacher Brewing Company.
The Craft Beer at Chifa Dinner Series will continue this winter with the brothers from Troegs Brewing Co on Thursday, December 16 and Garrett Oliver from Brooklyn Brewery on Thursday, January, 20 (click here for sneak peek at the chocolate inspired menu.)
