What would Oompa Loompas drink after a long day at Willy Wonka's chocolate factory?
According to brewmaster Paul Rutherford of the recently-opened Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant in Chestnut Hill, a chocolate stout aged for two weeks on
Madagascar vanilla beans and cocoa nibs and served on nitro.
The Brewery is having its first beer event, the Oompa Loompa Release Party. Employees will dress the part, with orange skin and green hair, and samples of the beer inspired by the iconic film will be passed around for tasting. A limited number of complimentary house-made chocolate truffles will be available, as well as larger mugs of the new brew for purchase.
It all goes down Friday, February 10 from 5 to 8 p.m at the Brewery's ninth location and the only one in Philadelphia, 8400 Germantown Avenue.
