Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant Celebrates Oktoberfest

WILMINGTON, DE – In honor of the annual Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Germany, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has created an exceptional menu of hearty Bavarian dishes that will be served at all eight restaurants from Wednesday, September 16 until Saturday, October 31. Iron Hill’s Oktoberfest menu, which will be served in addition to the a la carte menu, will offer dishes with seasonal autumnal flavors and is an ideal accompaniment to its hand-crafted Oktoberfest and Vienna Red Lager.

“Each year, we look forward to creating a menu that highlights fall ingredients and includes classic Oktoberfest items such as schnitzel, salmon and sausage with as much eagerness as we anticipate tapping the first of our autumn beers,” says Director of Culinary Operations Kevin Davies.

This year’s flavorful Oktoberfest offerings include: Salmon Gravlax, cured in-house and served with pumpernickel, cream cheese, cucumber-onion salad, deviled egg and sweet mustard-dill sauce; Grilled Sausage Sampler, including bratwurst, knockwurst and garlic sausage with braised lentils and assorted mustards; Jaeger Schnitzel, veal cutlets with buttered egg noodles, haricots verts and hunter’s sauce; Sauteed Rainbow Trout with horseradish smashed potatoes, spinach, leeks, tomatoes, garlic and ale sauce; and Black Walnut-Chocolate Torte. Menu items range in price from $4.25 for a cup of Bavarian White Bean and Sausage Soup to $21.50 for Sauerbrated Top Sirloin Steak, marinated in red wine and served with ale-braised cabbage, spatzle and gingersnap gravy.

To pair with this delicious menu is a variety of Iron Hill’s German-style seasonal beers, available at all locations through October. Offerings include the traditional German festival beer, Oktoberfest, a full-bodied amber lager that has a wonderful malty and bread-y aroma and a firm malt flavor balanced with mild bitterness and a clean, dry finish; and the Vienna Red Lager, a European-style, medium-bodied amber beer with a delicate malt aroma and a clean, crisp finish.
