Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will host its own March Madness tournament, pitting casks of beer from all nine locations against each other to determine this year’s champion. Guests can participate by visiting specified Iron Hill locations during the various rounds, drink the featured beers and decide which location will move closer to becoming the Firkin’ March Madness winner by helping finish their favorite firkin.

This Chestnut Hill Patch editor couldn't resist trying out the new restaurant on its first open weekend.
Like so many other people, I went to Iron Hill over the weekend, Saturday night to be precise. I wasn’t at all surprised to find that it was completely full. Even with a reservation (you can make them online here), we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. Ever since the news came out in March that Iron Hill had chosen to make a $3 million investment by opening a ninth location on Germantown Avenue, I have been following the process closely. I spoke with Iron Hill co-founder Kevin Finn that month to find out all about Iron Hill. I continued to contact him for information, pictures and an opening date until that day arrived Jan. 5. And on that opening day, I was there to see the first beer be poured from the taps behind the bar by none …
