11 Pumpkin Beer Events You Don't Want to Miss at Iron Hill in 2015

by | 11/29/2022

If you can’t get enough of the season’s favorite squash, you’re in luck: we’ve got two months of multi-tap events lined up at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant.


Sure, our official Pumpkin Ale release hits all 11 of our restaurants on Friday, September 11, but that’s just the start of a pumpkin patch’s worth of limited-time beers, special menus of fall flavors and pumpkin-inspired dishes and King of the Hill (KOTH) Rewards Club member specials. Your trick-or-treat bag will never look better than when it’s stuffed full of Pumpkin Ale in cans—available only at our restaurants.

Whip out your calendar and plan to be at your favorite Iron Hill, or bust out of your routine and hit several (we’d recommend swinging by all these events for the best variety). Remember to bring your growlers so you can tote our liquid goodness home.
