The basic menu at The Pub at Iron Horse Brewery becomes something special because the kitchen uses the pub’s beers to create one-of-a-kind specialties.

Pretzel Dogma, for example, is a frank stuffed with beer cheese and wrapped in pretzel dough also made with beer. It is served warm … along with tangy IPA mustard for dipping.

Traditionalists will want to try the An Bratwurst. It is robust, tender, and meaty, topped with beer-infused sauteed onions and IPA mustard. On the side, potato salad is made with tender chunks of potato, partially mashed, studded with plenty of bacon.

Chicken Curry Wrap is unique, its special twists including flavorful mango, apple, celery, and crushed cashews mixed in with the tender chicken.

The Pub doesn’t take itself too seriously, boasting that it provides “locally sourced food. Independently produced beer. Slightly above average events.” The house slogan, printed on the back of pint glasses and cut out of metal to make the grate for a fire pit on the patio, is “You’re welcome.”

At first glance, the space isn’t huge, but beyond the high-top tables in the front tasting room, there is a more expansive dining room in the back. Grab a menu at the bar and order there when you are ready. You will get a number and the food will be run out to you.

Outside you will find several picnic tables and a corn hole set tucked in the corner. It’s not dog-friendly, inside or out, but it is possible to leash a dog in a place where you can keep an eye on each other.
