Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

My weekend camping trips always include a visit to a local brewpub…here’s the next in my occasional series of posts about camping trips and brewpub visits.

Camping Trip: Part 2 of my October camping trip to Amish Country, near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. (See Part 1 in my prior post).

This landscape of rolling hills and farms, where horses and buggies share the roads with cars, is a beer destination.

Brewpub Visit: Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in Lancaster is right across the street from picturesque Franklin & Marshall College. I stopped in for an early lunch on a Sunday and the place was already packed — I could tell this was a popular spot with the locals.

After reviewing the beer chalkboard…

I ordered the eight beer sampler:

Iron Hill Beer Sampler

The sampler included five house beers plus three seasonals:

  • Light Lager
  • Vienna Red Lager
  • Raspberry Wheat
  • Ironbound Ale (American Pale Ale)
  • Pig Iron Porter
  • Harvest Saison (seasonal Belgian Ale)
  • Sayanora IPA
  • Great Pumpkin Stout (9.1% ABV)

There were more on tap and I wanted to try them all, so I followed my 8-beer sampler with a 4-beer sampler:

  • Oktoberfest
  • Rauchtoberfest
  • Pumpkin Ale
  • Cowabunga Porter

I really liked that Iron Hill had so many different fall seasonals — it’s too hard to pick a favorite! In keeping with the Halloween spirit, I carried out a growler of Pumpkin Ale.
