Beginning on May 1, all Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant locations will kick off their annual Burger Month celebration, featuring a different premium burger for 31 days in honor of National Hamburger Month. All specialty burgers, available for lunch and dinner, will be priced at $14.50, and Iron Hill’s award-winning brewers suggest pairing one of their hand-crafted ales with each from-scratch burger.
In May 2012 Iron Hill director of culinary operations Kevin Davies conceived the idea while enjoying a juicy burger and cold beer on the riverfront patio at Iron Hill in Wilmington, Del. The restaurant has celebrated ever since by adding creative new twists and fresh ingredients to all-time classic burger combinations. Iron Hill’s culinary team looks forward to May every year, viewing it as a playful opportunity to flex their creativity, sometimes holding internal contests among chefs to name the burgers.
“Our signature Burger Month menu is our tribute to the great American hamburger, and a perfect way for our guests to satisfy their burger cravings any day during National Hamburger Month,” says Davies. “We hope they have as much fun eating these lively combinations as we did creating them.”
