Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will celebrate Oktoberfest with a special German-inspired menu and its famed Oktoberfest beer. Oktoberfest specials will be available Sept. 24 through Oct. 11.
Oktoberfest, released annually, is Iron Hill’s house version of the traditional German festival beer. The medium-bodied lager boasts a sweet aroma and firm malt flavor, balanced with mild bitterness and a clean, dry finish. It will be available on draught, in-house only, for $6.25 per pint.
Additionally, the kitchen will complement Oktoberfest with German-inspired specials. Get a peek at the menu below:
