Iron Hill Brewery Launches Afternoon Delight Imperial Coffee Porter

WILMINGTON, DE – Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant is proud to announce the launch of Afternoon Delight Imperial Coffee Porter, the latest in their Iron Hill Bottled Reserves, available in festive gift packaging for the holidays. To be released on Black Friday, November 27 at the PA and DE locations, the beer is a variation on their acclaimed Pig Iron Porter that is higher in alcohol and was brewed with locally roasted Nicaraguan coffee beans. 750 mL bottles of Afternoon Delight will be available individually for $19.50, but guests can also purchase a gift pack containing a bottle and two logo snifter glasses in a two-bottle carrier for $28. Other holiday gift ideas include: Bottled Reserves, with more than a dozen of their much-lauded small-batch beers; Mug Club Gift Memberships, a thoughtful present for any beer lover; and a celebratory Holiday Gift Card Promotion that rewards purchasers with bonus cards.

Label: Afternoon Delight Imperial Coffee Porter

The Bottled Reserves are Iron Hill’s most highly regarded and award-winning beers from the past decade and are the perfect gift. For the holidays, all remaining items in their inventory will be available in one, two, three or four bottle totes. Fifteen different Iron Hill favorites are included, such as: Russian Imperial Stout, a full-bodied strong stout with complex malty-sweet and high-roasted character, balanced with citrusy American hops; Cannibal, a Belgian-style golden ale with a complex fruity aroma and dry spicy finish; and FE 10, a truly big-bodied beer that is rich, malty and very complex. Bottles are priced individually and guests who purchase a case will receive a 10% discount. At this time, the Bottled Reserves are not available at the Maple Shade, NJ restaurant.

Available for the first time this year is an Iron Hill Mug Club Gift Membership. Mug Club members enjoy a variety of perks including special pricing, invitations to exclusive mug club events, points and rewards for every dollar spent and direct email contact with the head brewers. Guests who wish to purchase a membership will receive a mug club card and 24 oz signature handmade beer mug in an attractive gift box for $35. Recipients can then log on to to activate their card and begin enjoying all the benefits of membership.

Finally, guests who prefer to give the gift of Iron Hill in the form of a gift card will be thrilled with their Holiday Gift Card Promotion. Thoughtful givers who purchase cards will be rewarded with a $20 Bonus Gift Card for every $75 they spend. For example, guests who spend $75 will receive one bonus card; those who buy $150 in gift cards will receive two bonus cards, and those who purchase $225 in gift cards will receive three bonus cards.
