With the first win of 2014 already in the record books for the Philadelphia Phillies — the Phils beat the Rangers 14-10 on March 31 — Iron Hill Brewery is ready to celebrate.
The Phillies hit the road this Friday, April 4 to play the Chicago Cubs, and not only will each of the 10 Iron Hill brewpub locations show the game (first pitch at 2:20 p.m.), but the regional beer juggernaut is also serving up special food and drink to mark the occasion.
On tap is the annual release of Phightin’ Phils Pils, a Northern German-style pilsner brewed with traditional German noble hops — the ideal pairing for Iron Hill’s lineup of fabulous — or should we say phabulous — quarter-pound hot dogs, selling for $8.50 per.
All locations will offer The Big Piece Dog, made with smoked beef brisket and topped with sautéed onion and chipotle barbecue sauce, and The J-Roll Dog, a smoked pork link slathered with creamy coleslaw and sweet mustard.
Individual locations will serve up their own variations — e.g., Media’s Chili Choooooch (beef chili, cheddar and chopped onions), North Wales’ Cliff Lee Dog (wrapped in bacon and embellished with avocado, pico de gallo, jalapeños and crema) and Chestnut Hill’s Harry the K (sauerkraut, chopped onion and spicy brown mustard).
Better than a bobblehead any day.
