Annual Tradition Continues at Fire & Ice Festival in Mount Holly

January 25th, 2014 may be a chilly day, but it will bring with it two heartwarming events that bring locals together and visitors to the town of Mount Holly. High Street Grill, located at 64 High Street in downtown Mount Holly, will once again join in the fun of the Fire & Ice Festival with their signature Beer Event, The Annual Winter Beer Fest.

The frigid temperatures of later January are so well suited for the deep flavors and warming effects of those big Winter Beers. Owners of the High Street Grill in Mount Holly, John and Nancy McDevitt, first found out just how many people would brave the cold, bearing scarves and mittens to enjoy these beers in the great outdoors, in 2009 when the first Annual Winter Beer Fest was born. “It was so cold in the first year’s tent, the beer lines were freezing up! We had to keep going inside to get hot water to pour on them. It was brutal. But everyone was having a blast!”


Due to the huge popularity of this event, in coming years, the tent not only grew in size and was moved from High Street to a much wider space in the rear Municipal Lot behind the grill, but it also began being heated! This wonderful heating system keeps the tent at a balmy 60 degrees. So mittens off……and head for High Street Grill! Join us in the tavern before or after your session for our great Gastropub style menu, and an additional 17 taps of the best Craft Beers as well as premium wines by the glass. Reservations are recommended for lunch or dinner, especially for larger parties of 5 or more.


The event runs on Saturday, January 25th from 12:30 to 5:00 pm. There are Two Sessions

available. The first session is 12:30 to 2:30, and the second is 3:00 to 5:00. Tickets are on sale at

The High Street Grill, Cash Only. All guests purchasing tickets must provide proof of age as this

is an over 21 only event. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. Designated Drivers

are $10. But don’t wait until the last minute, as this is always a Sold Out Event!


In homage to the “Fire” side of the town event, High Street Grill will be featuring their award winning Chili in the tent as part of the ticket price. HSG has won top honors more than a few times in the Professional Chili Contest and will wow you with this year’s entry while you partake of some of the best Winter Brews available in NJ. Over 20 Craft Breweries will be present, including Stoudt’s, Flying Dog, Troegs, Founders, Heavy Seas and more, with 40+ beers to taste and savour. In addition, enjoy some of the new locals brews from the rising stars of New Jersey beer making fame.
