Pints for Japan

Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

On April 15, all Iron Hill locations will donate 100 percent of proceeds from Sun IPA pint sales to the American Red Cross Japanese disaster relief efforts.

Starting at 5p.m., guests can purchase Sun IPA on draught at all Iron Hill locations to participate in the fundraising effort. All sale proceeds will help Japanese and Pacific residents that were affected by the tsunami and earthquake. The fundraiser will continue until the kegs are kicked.

Sun IPA is brewed from Sorachi Ace, a type of Japanese hops. The hops give the brew a distinct spicy kick, and it’s among Iron Hill go-er’s favorite draughts. Sun IPA is an America-style Pale Ale, but its Japanese “roots” inspired Iron Hill founders to give back.

“Like so many people, we watched in horror as the earthquake and resulting tsunami devastated the nation of Japan, and we knew right away we wanted to do something to help,” says founding partner Kevin Finn. “This fundraiser is especially dear to us because our popular Rising Sun IPA is brewed with Japanese hops – and we think it’s fitting that we give back anything we can as the resilient Japanese people work to overcome this crisis.”

Pints will cost $5.75 this Friday, at all Iron Hill locations:

Newark, DE (147 East Main Street, 302-266-9000)
Wilmington, DE (710 South Madison Street, 302-472-2739)
