Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant to Release Oktoberfest in Cans


Newark, DE — Beginning on Friday, September 30, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will pay homage to the fall harvest season by offering a traditional menu of German-inspired favorites, along with the highly-anticipated release of their Oktoberfest beer. For the first time, this popular German-style festival beer will be available in 16-oz cans, only while supplies last – as well as on draft through Sunday, October 30 at all 12 Iron Hill locations. Oktoberfest’s release marks the end of summer and the transition into the comforting beers of the fall and winter months.

  • Iron Hill’s Oktoberfest recipe is a traditional German-style festival beer, a medium-bodied lager with wonderful malty and bready aroma, and a firm malt flavor balanced with mild bitterness and a clean, dry finish
  • Oktoberfest beer will be available in draft pints, growlers and 4-packs

Single cans and draft pints will be available for dine-in only

Growlers and 4-packs of 16-oz cans will be available for takeout only

Iron Hill’s celebratory lineup of classic German dishes pairs perfectly with their Oktoberfest beer. Available at all 12 Iron Hill locations, menu items will include these and more:

  • Oktoberfest Egg Rolls, with bratwurst, sauerkraut, cheddar, green onion, beer mustard sauce
  • Grilled Alsatian Flatbread, with applewood smoked bacon, caramelized onions, gruyere, horseradish sauce
  • Schlachtplatte, grilled butcher’s plate, with cheddar bratwurst, garlic sausage, marinated pork loin, smashed Yukon gold potatoes, bacon-lager kraut and beer mustard sauce
  • Char-Grilled Flank Steak, with German potato salad, red cabbage and green herb sauce
  • Jaegerschnitzel, pan-fried pork cutlets, spaetzel, beer-braised red cabbage and hunter sauce
  • Apfel-Rosinen Brotpudding, warm apple-raisin bread pudding, rum sauce and vanilla ice cream
