Annual “Belgium Comes to West Chester” Event at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

Share

Locally based microbrewers continue to hold Belgian-brewed ales on the pedestal. The ale class of Belgium has become a stylistic standard, featuring an eclectic showcase of flavors, aromas, styles and strengths that together illustrate why they’re notorious for being the boldest and best of the international beer industry.

From classic renditions to experimental small-batch wonders, locals can soon celebrate the world’s most impressive style of beer, as interpreted by East Coast brewers. On Jan. 26 at 1 p.m., West Chester’s Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant’s taps will transform for the annual Belgium Comes to West Chester event, which is set to showcase more than 30 breweries’ interpretations of Belgian-style beers.

This is a pay-as-you-go event, with 10-sample flights up for grabs. You’ll be able to sip your way through Iron Hill locations—all under one roof. Selections from Chestnut Hill, Lancaster, Maple Shade, Media, North Wales, Wilmington, and of course, West Chester will round out the draft list, aside diverse suds from other local brewing operations—Tired Hands Brewing Company, Ommegang, Brooklyn Brewery, Dock Street Brewing, Dogfish Head Brewery, and more.

Brewers of the 30-plus tapped lineup will also be in-house, so be sure to shake the hands of  those who have created the day’s bounty. Visit ironhillbrewery.com.

Booked this Saturday? Don’t fret—Sly Fox Brewing Company has your back. They’re proclaiming the weekend of Feb. 1-3 as Belgian Weekend at their Pottstown-based Tastin’ Room, tapping the best of their Belgian-inspired beers (Ichor, Renard D’or ‘11, Saison Vos, etc.) for an exclusive liquid gold weekend.

Three-pour flights will be offered as part of the celebration, and accompanied with three cheeses, toast points and lamb prosciutto. A special Belgian-infused food menu will also be available. Visit slyfoxbeer.com.
