A taste of Germany has made its way to Leawood, thanks to Ironhaus Bierhalle and Garten (5317 W 151st St.). The restaurant opened this summer, serving “authenticisch” dishes alongside “Germerican” fare, both of which utilize local ingredients, including bratwursts and sausages from Leawood’s own Fritz’s Smoked Meats, veal and pork loin from McGonigle’s Meat Market and Farm to Market Bread products. And of course, beer plays a prominent role, with a mix of imported and local brews sold, available by the liter (or less, if you want to be that way). Inside, you’ll find an unfussy beer hall set up, while a spacious patio serves as a beer garden during warmer months. One more reason we’re already counting down the days until spring.
