Fairfax Festival Weekend is Upon Us!

Fairfax Festival weekend is one of the great events our funky little town puts on for local residents and visitors alike.  You’ll find the Iron Springs Ambrewlance in the parade Saturday morning at 10am, and if you’re lucky, you’ll be on the receiving end of our t-shirt cannon (manned by Aaron Altman, age 8, and Michael Altman, of an older age).  Then all weekend long get your favorite Iron Springs brew at the Ross Valley Fire Department booth by Bolinas Park…. we’ll be pouring beer and raising money for a great cause.  If you need a break, you can also drop into the pub for a local ale and a snack before going to check out some of the killer musical acts at this year’s festival.  Check out http://www.fairfaxfestival.com/ for parade info, the full music lineup, and all other information.

Come Get Your Crowler!

We are now filling 32 oz. crowlers filled with any Iron Springs beer at the pub!  What’s a crowler?  It’s a Thirst Repair Kit – a 32 oz. can filled on the spot with the beer of your choice.  Great for hiking, biking, or throwing in your car for a Marin spring adventure.

Open for Lunch and Dinner 7 Days a Week

We are now open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner!   We’ll be pairing this with all day happy hour and fish and chips on Mondays.  Now there’s a winning combo!
