WILMINGTON, Del.– For the first time in its short tenure on the taps, Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant (Iron Hill), has announced the first can release of Philly Special, the popular NEIPA, which premiered in February 2018 at their Phoenixville location. Philly Special cans will be unleashed in 16 oz. 4 packs on starting on April 18, 2019 at all 16 Iron Hill Restaurant & Brewery locations throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and South Carolina, for $17.25. Philly Special, which was aptly named for the special play that football fans across the Philadelphia region will never forget, was brewed by the team at Iron Hill Phoenixville in February 2018. Following its initial success, Philly Special quickly became one of Iron Hill’s most popular draft beers and found its way to surrounding Iron Hill taps in Ardmore, Chestnut Hill and Huntingdon Valley. When Iron Hill opened their 15th location in Philadelphia, it was a no-brainer to include Philly Special as one of the location’s opening beers. Philly Special is brewed with flaked oats and wheat and the 6.7 percent ABV IPA has intense flavors and aromas of tropical fruit and resinous pine dominate. “We were thrilled to create a beer to […]
Cape May Brewing Company and Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant Collaborate on Twin Fin Kettle-Soured Session New England Style IPA Benefiting Surfrider Foundation South Jersey Cape May, NJ — Cape May Brewing Company is joining forces with Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant in Voorhees to brew Twin Fin, a kettle-soured, session, New England-Style IPA, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Surfrider Foundation South Jersey — a non-profit, activist organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches. “We’re inextricably tied to the ocean in Cape May,” says Cape May Brewing Company CEO and co-owner Ryan Krill, “and it’s up to the businesses and residents who are here year ‘round to protect it. It’s — by far — the most precious and threatened natural resource we have in our area, so, when Iron Hill came up with the idea of a collaboration to support Surfrider South Jersey, we were happy to come aboard.” Many of the staff at Iron Hill — located in the western part of New Jersey — have ties to the ocean. “My family is from the Jersey Shore,” says Iron Hill Head Brewer William Mink, “and I’ve spent a lot […]
Real Ale Recap: A Firkin Good Time at Yards Real Ale Invitational I was lucky enough to win free tickets to Yards Real Ale Invitational, the breweries first at their new location in Northern Liberties. With 48 other breweries and 60 firkins of beer to try, this was a beer event I could not miss. In years past, Yards has hosted the Real Ale Invitational outside of the brewery, with food and tents in their parking lot. This year, everything was inside the brewery and I got an up close look at how Yards brews, cans, and kegs their beers. There was live music, good food, and a great atmosphere. Don’t miss this event next year! What is Real Ale? Real Ale is an unfiltered and unpasteurized beer that is conditioned and served from a cask (or firkin) without additional CO2 or nitrogen. It’s normally served at a warmer temperature (50-55 degrees) and has a more complex flavor. Real Ale is very popular in the United Kingdom and has a niche following here in the US. If you haven’t tried Real Ale, I highly recommend it! Unique and Stand Outs Yards- ESA and Brawler (my favorite from Yards) Pizza Boy- Waiting […]
For nearly half a century Atlantic City’s Steel Pier was home to one of the most amazing attractions in the world, the Steel Pier Diving Horse. Up to 4 times a day an energetic, well-trained, water-loving horse would dive from as high as 60 feet from an elevated platform into a large pool for a throng of spectators. Usually an attractive young woman in a bathing suit would ride on the back of the fearless steed as it jettisoned through the air and into the water. The horses trained for several months and only the most valiant were selected for the big show. As Legend has it, the idea of the Diving Horse was born in Texas by “Doc” William Frank Carver, a 19th Century sharp shooter who traveled the Wild West performing shows that included animal acts and shooting exhibitions. The story has it that while his show was traveling over a bridge in Nebraska, Carver and his horse fell through a wooden bridge plunging into a river. This mishap gave birth to the Diving Horse, which quickly grew to become his favorite act in his traveling show. Doc’s children Al and Lorena helped train and take care of the […]
Tom sat down with Ingrid Epoch, Head Brewer of Tuckahoe Brewing Company in Egg Harbor Twp, NJ. Ingrid and the crew at Tuckahoe have really been hitting it out of the park over the last year and Ingrid is one of the reasons why!
So when my son asked me if I knew of any interesting places that he could do his Rowan University Photojournalism Project near the campus I immediately thought of Human Village Brewing. Megan Myers and her staff hosted my son for an afternoon and this video is the end result. I want to personally thank Megan and everyone at Human Village for their hospitality! If you haven’t visited, make sure you stop by and grab a beer or two!
