Beers On Tap At The Pub 1

Kent Lake Kolsch:

Our rendition of this classic from Cologne is brewed with all German
ingredients.  This light and crisp ale holds many characteristics of a lager with some tangy and tart notes. Water for this beer is locally sourced from Kent Lake.

Alsatian Pale Ale:

A single hopped European-style pale ale, made with oatmeal and has a cereal malt flavor, a clean, silky body, and a dominating earthy/citrusy noble hop presence. The Aramis hops used come from the Alsatian region of France. Wheat free.»

At Iron Springs, we like to think of ourselves as active participants in our community and our town. We see our patrons not just as our customers, but also as our friends and neighbors.  We hope you’ll find this belief reflected in our style, our service, our food, and our beer.  Enjoy!
