We here at Iron Springs want to give a big shout out to the brewery team. This was our biggest year in beer production in our 10 year history, squeezing out an extra 20% of beer over 2013. Our beer took home some great hardware in 2014 and we feel our beer has never tasted better. Our brewery team of Christian, Jason, and our rock star sales man Richard are making big things happen in the brewery and they can’t wait to show you what they have in store for 2015 – big things people, big things!
Barrel Aged Beer Month
January is Barrel Aged Beer Month. Each week we will release a different barrel aged beer. Make sure you taste them all – they are delish.
Week 1: Chardonnay Barrel Saison
Week 2: Bourbon Barrel Sless Stout
Week 3: Port Barrel Aged Quad
Week 4: Scotch Barrel Winter Scotch
On Friday January 30th we will be tapping this years’ batch of Gold Medal winning Compulsory Ale – our version of a triple IPA. This beer took the coveted gold medal in last year’s Bistro Triple IPA Festival. We just brewed this batch last week and so far…………..AMAZING! Time will tell.
Cask Card Program
Cask Thursday is every other Thursday of the month, except on special occasions, like the Friday 1/30 tapping of the cask of Compulsory Ale. Follow us on Facebook for exact cask tapping dates, times, & flavors, or go to our web calendar at www.ironspringspub.com. After 10 pints of cask ale, you will receive a commemorative cask glassware only available by having your cask card punched.
January 15th – Cask of Sless Stout
FRIDAY January 30th – Cask of Compulsory Ale
As you may be aware, we were finally able to take over additional space in the back of the pub and we are in the middle of doing a major bathroom renovation as well as increasing brewery production. For the next 2 months there will be some slight inconveniences and dust, but out of the ashes will come great things in 2015, making your dining experience at Iron Springs that much nicer. Thank you for your patience during the remodel!

Rusty Evans & Ring Of Fire with special guest Barry Sless
The Worlds Finest Johnny Cash Tribute
Rockabilly Hall of Famer, Rusty Evans and his band Ring of Fire have been burning up the California festival circuit with his rollicking tribute to country music icon Johnny Cash.
With a voice of rolling thunder and a spirit like gentle rain Rusty has been wowing audiences from Nashville to San Francisco with his stunning tribute to the “Man In Black”. His weighted drawl doles out molasses-coated syllables, putting an upbeat spin on less than optimistic situations. Lending his own touch to world famous songs Rusty honors the Man in Black with soulful honesty and exuberance.
Driving rhythms on his amplified acoustic Martin guitar are augmented by his energetic three-piece band Ring of Fire. A hot rockin’ lead guitar, driving bass and drums create the powerful and irresistible Johnny Cash signature sound, a pulse that drives folks right to the dance floor. People often comment on how much Rusty actually looks like the Man in Black. He’s honored by the compliment and destined to continue in the spirit of the country music legend he holds in such high regard.
