CELEBRATE WITH A BURGER (AND A BEER!) A DAY AT IRON HILL
Iron Hill’s annual burger-a-day Burger Month Menu is back and better than ever for 2017, including tempting daily beer pairings
Beginning on Monday, May 1, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will kick off their annual Burger Month celebration, featuring a different premium burger for 31 days in honor of National Hamburger Month from Monday, May 1 through Wednesday, May 31 at all 12 Iron Hill locations. All specialty burgers, available for lunch and dinner, will be priced at $14.50, and Iron Hill’s award-winning brewers strongly suggest pairing one of their hand-crafted ales with each from-scratch burger.
In May 2012, Iron Hill Director of Culinary Operations Kevin Davies conceived the idea for Burger Month while enjoying a juicy burger and cold beer on the riverfront patio at Iron Hill Wilmington. The restaurant has celebrated the national holiday ever since by adding creative new twists and fresh ingredients on all-time classic burger combinations. Iron Hill’s culinary team looks forward to May every year, viewing it as a playful opportunity to flex their creativity, sometimes holding internal contests among chefs to name the burgers.
“Our signature Burger Month menu is our tribute to the great American hamburger, and a perfect way for our guests to satisfy their burger cravings any day during National Hamburger Month,” says Davies. “We hope they have as much fun eating these lively combinations as we did creating them!”
