During the March 5 broadcast, Herz paired the locally made red ale with potato, cheddar bacon soup. Kannah Creek officials were unaware their beer would be featured on the television show, but were pleased to hear the news, according to Kannah Creek’s Facebook site.
Crossed Irons Irish Ale was renamed from its original seasonal offering, Monument Red. The new name is used to help raise proceeds for a local firefighter who was diagnosed with leukemia. Crossed Irons refers to the tools firefighters carry.
