(Check out the video above for a quick overview of Fat Hill Brewing.)
Fat Hill Brewing is a 100% locally owned 7-barrel craft brewery that opened in Mason City in December 2016. Our brewing facility and taproom in the long-vacant historic building at 17 N. Federal Avenue features sixteen taps, space for 140 patrons, and a variety of live music and special events. We are so excited to be located in beautiful downtown Mason City!
The founders/owners of FHB are beer enthusiasts Jake Rajewsky and Molly Angstman, a husband-and-wife duo. Jake serves as brewer/GM and Molly is our marketing and events manager. They both love serving beer and chatting to customers so you'll see them working behind the bar quite a bit too. Other faces you'll see at the brewery include our fabulous staff: Taylor, Tim, McKenzie, Zach, Jon, and Alyssa. We have a great team here and are so proud/humbled that they all want to work with us.
We've been thrilled with the response to our beer so far. We've made over thirty different styles since we open and are pretty proud of each one. Our flagship beers include our Blonde Ale, American wheat, robust porter, IPA, and Scottish ale. Some seasonal favorites have been our Rongo Rongo New England Style IPA, Oktoberfest, Dopplebock, Barggot, and Hibisucus Saison. The taproom sells pints, flights, crowlers, growlers, and kegs on request.
Our taproom attracts a great variety of people in part because we keep our super calendar busy. Some of our past special events include a flower arranging work shop, wreath making, speed friending, tarot card readings, string art, origami, coloring book nights, food pairings, and craft beer classes. We also have several regular monthly meet-ups, including a book club, a writing group, a knitting club, and a bottle share.
We have been so grateful for an amazing first year. Thank you to all of our customers, staff, and families for all your support.
