Before we headed back home, we decided to make a quick pit stop to try Iron Road Brewing. They’re located in an industrial area.
We dropped in on a Monday afternoon (around 12:30pm). It wasn’t too busy. Our server/bartender was friendly and came by to check on us a few times.
Their merchandise is pretty run of the mill.
But at least they have some board games (Catan, Ticket to Ride, etc.) hidden in a corner.
Beer options (west bound and east bound) are behind the bar.

There was 8 beer flavours on tap along with a small food menu consisting of chips & bar snacks, nachos, burrito bowls, tacos and dessert.

Flight ($9.00 for 4)
We went with the red bridge pale ale, the juice train, boomer and railtie ($1.00 extra). I actually really enjoyed the look and feel of their flight cups!
Favourite of the bunch was the juice train, a sour mango saison. You don’t see too many sour mango beers; light and easy to drink but we wanted more punch in mango. Boomer was sour in the slightest way. Red bridge pale ale was standard. Railtie, barrel aged, had a bit of funk to it but didn’t love it.
Decent beers but nothing we haven’t seen before at IRB.
