SUNDAY, October 9th

Ready to get your German on?  Got a hankering for some Huhner Schnitzel?  Grab your stein and head for Iron Hill.  Until October 30, enjoy a special food menu highlighting traditional Oktoberfest fare.  And, of course, no Oktoberfest would be complete without a proper German beer.  Iron Hill has produced a medium-bodied lager that has a wonderful sweet, malty and bready aroma and a firm malt flavor, balanced with mild bitterness and a clean dry finish.
