Iron Hill Brewery ExteriorBeginning on Monday, May 1st, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will kick off their annual Burger Month celebration, featuring a different premium burger for 31 days in honor of National Hamburger Month from Monday, May 1 through Wednesday, May 31 at all 12 Iron Hill locations.

All specialty burgers, available for lunch and dinner, will be priced at $14.50, and Iron Hill’s brewers suggest pairing one of their hand-crafted ales with each from-scratch burger.

In May 2012 Iron Hill Director of Culinary Operations Kevin Davies conceived the idea for Burger Month while enjoying a juicy burger and cold beer on the riverfront patio at Iron Hill Wilmington.

The restaurant has celebrated the national holiday ever since by adding new twists and fresh ingredients on classic burger combinations.
