The New Iron Hill Chestnut Hill To Debut Oompa Loompa Stout With A Willy Wonka-Themed Event, February 10
What do you get when you combine chocolate, beer and employees sporting green hair and orange skin?
Iron Hill Bewery’s Oopma Loompa Stout release party.
For its very first brew event, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in Chestnut Hill, the most recent of nine locations to open, will treat guests with samples of their newest creation, Oompa Loompa Stout, from head brewer Paul Rutherford on Friday, February 10 from 5-8 p.m.
A medium-bodied chocolate stout that’s been aged for two weeks on Madagascar vanilla beans and cocoa nibs, Oompa Loompa Stout will be passed around for tastings by employees dressed as those odd little characters from the book and film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (we weren’t kidding you).
To top it off, guests can also indulge in house-made chocolate truffles and purchase 16 oz. mugs of the stout.
No golden ticket is required for entrance.
Enjoy the chocolatey experience, but try not to pull an Augustus Gloop and be the first to get ejected from the factory for “over-indulging”.
