The Legend of Saint Bethardus.
Here it Iron Hill West Chester, we have our very own patron Saint. Saint Dan Bethardus. St. Betherdus is a larger than life man with larger than life appetites. He worships here at the kitchen of the holy Eat-Sencion where he heads the crusade for flavor in beer and food! Much as the rule of St. Benedict has governed monastic life for thousands of years, so has the rule of St. Bethardus governed the life of Iron Hill Brewery for over a decade. When not hanging with his Brothers Basil, Rosemary, and Tyme, St. Bethardus spends his time contemplating food, feeding the hungry, providing drink to the thirsty and distributing wares to those in need…as in ‘where is my beer!’.
Soon we celebrate the Birthday of our patron saint in the same way he would, by drinking and eating! Today we are brewing his namesake beer: St. Bethardus Abt 8. More soon, but check out Chef ‘Brother’ Dan Bethard in action making in his very own Abbey Style beer. Release party is scheduled for Friday, June 17th so save the date!
