Another Tap Takeover is coming up, and we couldn't be more proud to spread the word about it...
If you're gonna drink, drink for a cause! On October 18th, 2016 from 5PM-10PM, The Iron Press Costa Mesa will be hosting aTap Takeover presented by The Bruery and Bruery Terruex to benefit the beloved OC local and chef, Greg Moro. Greg has recently experienced an unfortunate incident placing him in a coma, and while we're sending him positive thoughts for a speedy recovery, we also thought we could do even more to help. SO, a Tuesday Tap Takeover is in order.
The Iron Press will be donating 10% of all sales on October 18th, 2016 towards Greg's recovery. In addition we'll have Dj Lex spinning, hosting a raffle, and a silent auction on items like gift cards, seats at local Chef's Table dinners, and more. Our crew is very excited to host this special benefit, and we hope that you'll attend and enjoy some outstanding local brews for a good cause.

MASH + VANILLA
ENGLISH BARLEYWINE, 13.3% ABV
Celebrating the marvel of Kentucky's own bourbon barrels, the sweetness of barleywine, the nuance of coconut. Oak flavors are coaxed into prominence with copious amounts of vanilla.
AMERICAN STRONG ALE, 11.7% ABV
A dandy recreation of the profile of a classic Manhattan cocktail - from the grain, bourbon character from barrel-aging, and a complex blend of 30+ spices and grape must for bitters-eque and vermouth-like notes. Fancy a garnish? We saved you a step. Cherries and orange zest come out as your kisser hits glass.
BALTIC PORTER, 7.6% ABV
Built on the backbone of a rich, cold-fermented baltic porter made popular in countries bordering the Baltic Sea. Similar to an imperial porter but distinctly different, the baltic porter style is heralded for being full-bodied, roasty and smooth, with overtones of toffee, coffee, caramel, chocolate and dark fruit. Add in the bold, sweet flavors of maple syrup and The Grade is not your average baltic porter, and that’s A-OK in our book.
