Iron Hill in the pumpkin patch

Chris Lapierre IHMapleShadeIt didn't take pumpkin ales showing up on the shelves in July this year to signal that a bumper crop of the wildly popular fall seasonal is at hand.

Probably more than last year, but who's counting?

And speaking of last year, 2012 figures big into the pumpkin ale release set for this Saturday (Sept. 7, 1 p.m.) at Iron Hill brewpub's Maple Shade location: The bourbon barrel-aged version of the imperial pumpkin ale that tops the day's marquee was actually brewed last year, then stowed away in a Heaven Hill whiskey barrel for tapping at this year's event. (All 10 Iron Hill locations will release pumpkin ales on Saturday for the annual "Welcome, Great Pumpkin" party.)

An afternoon with Iron Hill brewers

IH PromoThe Iron Hill brewpub chain broke into the top 10 of a national ranking of U.S. brewpubs this year.

The Brewers Association's list is based on beer production, and Iron Hill's Maple Shade location, in short order, emerged as a leader among the company's nine locations.

For four years, Maple Shade was Iron Hill's only New Jersey brewery, with the other eight locations spread among Delaware and Pennsylvania.

But their new Voorhees site will soon change that (opening is set for Aug. 5), and it will invariably help Iron Hill move closer to the top 5 of that BA ranking.

Ahead of the Voorhees location's kickoff, Iron Hill is holding a meet the brewers afternoon in Maple Shade, with host brewer Chris LaPierre and Kevin Walters, who came over from Iron Hill's Lancaster, Pa., site to brew in Voorhees.

Getting a chance to talk to both brewers is a great opportunity, because Iron Hill is really responsive to customer suggestions when it comes to beers.
