Doughnut Hole Flight Night
Aug

4:00 pm16:00

Doughnut Hole Flight Night

We had such a good time with our sold-out flight nights for cupcakes and cheese, we're doing it again -- this time with doughnut holes from a local new bakery called Othelia's Doughnuts.  

We're pairing four of their delicious doughnut holes with four taster size Fat Hill Brewing beers. Although the final menu is yet to be set, start dreaming of maybe blueberry with robust porter or cinnamon sugar with Scottish ale or lemon with IPA.  Different flavors in the doughnut holes bring out flavors in the beer you may not have noticed before. It's a fun way to re-learn a beer you're already friends with ...and an easy way to try new ones.

Your $15 ticket price includes the doughnut holes flight and accompanying beers (four doughnut holes/four beers). No substitutions.

Come in any time we're open on Wednesday, August 9 to claim your goodies! (4pm to 10pm is preferable, although we close at 11 pm that night)

Tickets are required for this event because we need to know how many doughnut holesto order.  Please purchase your tickets through this link.

Walk-in requests for doughnut holes flights unfortunately cannot be fulfilled. Due to space restrictions in the brewery, we are selling exactly 50 tickets and no more, so if you're interested we suggest you buy now.  All three of our last flight nights sold out well before the event date.  The last one sold out in just a few days.  We constantly have people contacting us saying they waited to buy tickets and then missed out and we have to disappoint them.

Brewery Book Club: The Brewer's Tale

Join us for the 8th meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

August's book is The Brewer's Tale by William Bostwick, which will take us through the crazy history of our favorite beverage.  Brewer Jake will be on hand at the meeting to add his thoughts on the book.

The book is available in paper, Kindle, and audio formats.  Please consider shopping local!  Brewery book club members are eligible for a 20% discount on book club books at Book World in Mason City.  

About The Brewer's Tale

Taste 5,000 years of brewing history as a time-traveling home brewer rediscovers and re-creates the great beers of the past.

The Brewer's Tale is a beer-filled journey into the past: the story of brewers gone by and one brave writer's quest to bring them—and their ancient, forgotten beers—back to life, one taste at a time. This is the story of the world according to beer, a toast to flavors born of necessity and place—in Belgian monasteries, rundown farmhouses, and the basement nanobrewery next door. So pull up a barstool and raise a glass to 5,000 years of fermented magic.

Fueled by date-and-honey gruel, sour pediococcus-laced lambics, and all manner of beers between, William Bostwick's rollicking quest for the drink's origins takes him into the redwood forests of Sonoma County, to bullet-riddled South Boston brewpubs, and across the Atlantic, from Mesopotamian sands to medieval monasteries to British brewing factories. Bostwick compares notes with the Mt. Vernon historian in charge of preserving George Washington's molasses-based home brew, and he finds the ancestor of today's macrobrewed lagers in a nineteenth-century spy's hollowed-out walking stick.

Wrapped around this modern reportage are deeply informed tales of history's archetypal brewers: Babylonian temple workers, Nordic shamans, patriots, rebels, and monks. The Brewer's Tale unfurls from the ancient goddess Ninkasi, ruler of intoxication, to the cryptic beer hymns of the Rig Veda and down into the clove-scented treasure holds of India-bound sailing ships. With each discovery comes Bostwick's own turn at the brew pot, an exercise that honors the audacity and experimentation of the craft. A sticky English porter, a pricelessly rare Belgian, and a sacred, shamanic wormwood-tinged gruit each offer humble communion with the brewers of yore.

Brewery Book Club: Americanah

Join us for the 9th meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

September's book is Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, which is a contemporary novel about personal identity, culture-shock, love, and growing up.  This bestseller is set on a big scale, covering Nigeria, the United States, and England.   

Americanah was picked as the winner for the "One Book, One New York" program, part of a community reading initiative encouraging all city residents to read the same book.  It has also received several high-caliber awards, including the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and was named one of the top books of the year in 2014 by several important entities including the New York Times.

Americanah is a bit longer than our usual book club books so start early on this one so you have it done by September 20!  

The book is available in paper, Kindle, and audio formats.  Please consider shopping local!  Brewery book club members are eligible for a 20% discount on book club books at Book World in Mason City.  

About the book

To the women in the hair-braiding salon, Ifemelu seems to have everything a Nigerian immigrant in America could desire, but the culture shock, hardships, and racism she’s endured have left her feeling like she has “cement in her soul.” Smart, irreverent, and outspoken, she reluctantly left Nigeria on a college scholarship. Her aunty Uju, the pampered mistress of a general in Lagos, is now struggling on her own in the U.S., trying to secure her medical license. Ifemelu’s discouraging job search brings on desperation and depression until a babysitting gig leads to a cashmere-and-champagne romance with a wealthy white man. Astonished at the labyrinthine racial strictures she’s confronted with, Ifemelu, defining herself as a “Non-American Black,” launches an audacious, provocative, and instantly popular blog in which she explores what she calls Racial Disorder Syndrome. Meanwhile, her abandoned true love, Obinze, is suffering his own cold miseries as an unwanted African in London. MacArthur fellow Adichie (The Thing around Your Neck, 2009) is a word-by-word virtuoso with a sure grasp of social conundrums in Nigeria, East Coast America, and England; an omnivorous eye for resonant detail; a gift for authentic characters; pyrotechnic wit; and deep humanitarianism. Americanah is a courageous, world-class novel about independence, integrity, community, and love and what it takes to become a “full human being.” --Donna Seaman via Booklist via Amazon

Brewery Book Club: The Haunting of Hill House

Join us for the 10th meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

October's book is The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, which is the perfect spooky choice to get you in the mood for Halloween!

The book is available in paper, Kindle, and audio formats.  Please consider shopping local!  Brewery book club members are eligible for a 20% discount on book club books at Book World in Mason City.  

About the book

Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has unnerved readers since its original publication in 1959. A tale of subtle, psychological terror, it has earned its place as one of the significant haunted house stories of the ages.

Eleanor Vance has always been a loner--shy, vulnerable, and bitterly resentful of the 11 years she lost while nursing her dying mother. "She had spent so long alone, with no one to love, that it was difficult for her to talk, even casually, to another person without self-consciousness and an awkward inability to find words." Eleanor has always sensed that one day something big would happen, and one day it does. She receives an unusual invitation from Dr. John Montague, a man fascinated by "supernatural manifestations." He organizes a ghost watch, inviting people who have been touched by otherworldly events. A paranormal incident from Eleanor's childhood qualifies her to be a part of Montague's bizarre study--along with headstrong Theodora, his assistant, and Luke, a well-to-do aristocrat. They meet at Hill House--a notorious estate in New England.

Hill House is a foreboding structure of towers, buttresses, Gothic spires, gargoyles, strange angles, and rooms within rooms--a place "without kindness, never meant to be lived in...."

Although Eleanor's initial reaction is to flee, the house has a mesmerizing effect, and she begins to feel a strange kind of bliss that entices her to stay. Eleanor is a magnet for the supernatural--she hears deathly wails, feels terrible chills, and sees ghostly apparitions. Once again she feels isolated and alone--neither Theo nor Luke attract so much eerie company. But the physical horror of Hill House is always subtle; more disturbing is the emotional torment Eleanor endures. Intense, literary, and harrowing, The Haunting of Hill House belongs in the same dark league as Henry James's classic ghost story, The Turn of the Screw. --Naomi Gesinger via Amazon

Brewery Book Club: Grunt

Join us for the 11th meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

November's book is Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War by Mary Roach, which is a non-fiction bestseller about all the fascinating small details about the military you may have not thought about before.  Described by the New York Times as "America's funniest science writer," Roach has a great way of presenting information in an easy, super approachable way.  She answers questions in the book you might not have thought to ask:  Why do snipers hate zippers?  How is a wedding gown like a bomb suit? Why are shrimp more dangerous to sailors than sharks? 

The book is available in paper, Kindle, and audio formats.  Please consider shopping local!  Brewery book club members are eligible for a 20% discount on book club books at Book World in Mason City.  

About the book

Grunt tackles the science behind some of a soldier's most challenging adversaries―panic, exhaustion, heat, noise―and introduces us to the scientists who seek to conquer them. Mary Roach dodges hostile fire with the U.S. Marine Corps Paintball Team as part of a study on hearing loss and survivability in combat. She visits the fashion design studio of U.S. Army Natick Labs and learns why a zipper is a problem for a sniper. She visits a repurposed movie studio where amputee actors help prepare Marine Corps medics for the shock and gore of combat wounds. At Camp Lemmonier, Djibouti, in east Africa, we learn how diarrhea can be a threat to national security. Roach samples caffeinated meat, sniffs an archival sample of a World War II stink bomb, and stays up all night with the crew tending the missiles on the nuclear submarine USS Tennessee. Take a tour of duty with Roach, and you’ll never see our nation’s defenders in the same way again.

Speed Friending

 

Meeting new people sometimes can be tough, especially as an adult.  Maybe you're new in town, maybe you work odd hours, maybe the people at work aren’t friend-able, maybe everyone you meet already has a clique.  We have come up with this speed friending event as a super easy way for you to do some fun, casual networking with Mason City-area folks.  It's free, no-pressure, all ages 21+ are welcome, and no contact info is exchanged (unless you and your new friend take that initiative).  The more people you know around town, the more it feels like home-  trust us on that!

 

Here's how it works:

 

Thursday, July 20

6 PM - 7 PM-  Sign up at the bar to be included in speed friending and get your name tag

7 PM-  You'll be given a starting place to either sit or rotate from.  (They'll be conversation prompts at your table if you need them)

7:05 PM- 8:00 PM -  You'll talk to whomever you're sitting with for exactly five minutes, until we ring the bell, repeating until you've chatted with everyone at speed friending or until it's 8:00 PM

8:00 PM-  Stay and chat if you'd like with all your new friends

Brewery Book Club: Persuasion

Join us for the 7th meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

Jane Austen died 200 years and 1 day ago from our July book club meeting so we thought it was a fitting time to discuss an Austen book.  If you've never read Austen before, we think you'll be especially surprised of the depth, humor, and heart found in Persuasion, which unfortunately is lesser read than her more famous Sense and Sensibility or Pride and Prejudice. 

The book is available in paper, Kindle, and audio formats, and is even available for free online because of how old the copyright is now.  Please consider shopping local if you choose to buy a hard copy of the book.  (Brewery book club members are eligible for a 20% discount on book club books at Book World in Mason City.)  

About Persuasion

First published in 1818, Persuasion was Jane Austen's last work. Its mellow character and autumnal tone have long made it a favorite with Austen readers. Set in Somersetshire and Bath, the novel revolves around the lives and love affair of Sir Walter Elliot, his daughters Elizabeth, Anne, and Mary, and various in-laws, friends, suitors, and other characters, In Anne Elliot, the author created perhaps her sweetest, most appealing heroine.
At the center of the novel is Anne's thwarted romance with Captain Frederick Wentworth, a navy man Anne met and fell in love with when she was 19. At the time, Wentworth was deemed an unsuitable match and Anne was forced to break off the relationship. Eight years later, however, they meet again. By this time Captain Wentworth has made his fortune in the navy and is an attractive "catch." However, Anne is now uncertain about his feelings for her. But after various twists and turns of fortune, the novel ends on a happy note.
In Persuasion, as in such novels as Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Emma, Austen limned the plight of young women who could escape the constraints of family life only by marrying, and suggest the foolishness of women who believed they were free and not dependent on the financial and social resources of men. At the same time, Persuasion offers an ironic and subtle paean to the true love that enables one woman to rise above straitened economic circumstances and the stifling social conventions that restricted women to narrowly circumscribed lives in the common sitting room.
Sure to appeal to admirers of Jane Austen, Persuasion will delight any reader with its finely drawn characters, gentle satire, and charming re-creation of the genteel world of the 19th-century English countryside.

July Bottle Share

News Flash: We love beer. We love the beer we make, but we also love trying other beer.

FHB is super excited to announce that we will be hosting a bottle share on the second Thursday of each month from 4-8 pm. Craft beer lovers are encouraged to bring at least 16 ounces of a new, rare, old, oddball, or just plain delicious beer they’d like to share. Whether it’s a 2004 Cantillon Loerik you traded a kidney for, or just a great pale ale you had at the tiny brewery near your grandma’s house last weekend, beer geeks are encouraged to bring anything they’d like to share.

If you’re a big enough beer nerd to have a favorite sampling glass, feel free to bring it. If not, we’ve got a clean glass for you! This is a casual, come-and-go-as-you-please event, so show up at any time and stay as long you’d like. There is no cost for this event, but we do suggest a generous tip for your friendly bartender who will be cleaning up after us all night.

As always, over-imbibing is not allowed and we retain the right to refuse service to anyone out of line. Hard alcohol is never allowed in our taproom.  The bottle share is for beer only.  This is the only time outside beer is allowed to be brought into our tap room.

FHB Writing Group July Meeting

IMG_7551.JPG

We were thrilled at the turnout for our first three writing group meetings!  We have so many genres, experience levels, and ages represented.  We've had great discussions and everyone was so enthusiastic about writing and learning new things!

Everyone interested is welcome to submit a short writing sample for discussion in July.

If you'd like to submit a writing sample for the group to discuss, email it to Molly at FHB (molly@fathillbrewing.com) before midnight on June 28th.  She will email out the whole packet to the whole group the day after so the group will have that whole week to read the submissions.  In order to avoid millions of emails to the group, Molly is going to be strict about that submission deadline.  

Submissions should be 1 - 3 pages double spaced and no longer, please, since so many people will be submitting.  If your submission comes from the middle of a larger piece, it might be good to include a paragraph of introduction to get people into the story.  If your piece has explicit content, please say so at the top as some of our members might want to pass on that.  The exception for that page limit is Mary who is our "spotlight" submitter this month.  She is welcome to submit something longer.

If you don't want to submit writing, that's ok!  Feel free to please come to the meeting anyway to discuss the other submissions.

Note that we changed our monthly meeting time to 6:30pm instead of 7pm.  

In July, we'll also having a casual discussion about your tips on how you push yourself to be your most creative.

If you didn't come to the first three meetings but are interested in joining the group, you are more than welcome.  Please email molly@fathillbrewing.com and she will make sure you have the submissions that we'll discuss at in July.

We created a Facebook group for the members to share little things or links or whatever they'd like in between meetings.  Here's the link to that:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/FHBwriting/

All-Iowa Cheese & Beer Flight Night (SOLD OUT)

We had such a good time with our sold-out Donut Flight Night and Cupcake Flight Night we're doing it again -- this time with CHEESE! What better way to celebrate National Dairy Month!

We're pairing four delicious small-batch cheeses from around the state with four taster size Fat Hill Brewing beers. Different flavors in the cheeses bring out flavors in the beer you may not have noticed before. It's a fun way to re-learn a beer you're already friends with ...and an easy way to try new ones.

Your $20 ticket price includes the cheese flight and accompanying beers (four types of cheese/four beers) and a few crackers/fruit/nuts as well to refresh the pallet in between tastings. No substitutions.

Tickets are required for this event because we need to know how much cheese to order. Walk-in requests for cheese flights unfortunately cannot be fulfilled. Due to space restrictions in the brewery and cooler, we are selling exactly 50 tickets and no more, so if you're interested we suggest you buy now.

Come in any time we're open on Wednesday, June 28 to claim your goodies!

We're selling these tickets super early because we think they'd make a perfect Father's Day or Mother's Day gift! (Something fun you could do together.)

About The Sympathizer

"With the pace and suspense of a thriller and prose that has been compared to Graham Greene and Saul Bellow, The Sympathizer is a sweeping epic of love and betrayal. The narrator, a communist double agent, is a “man of two minds,” a half-French, half-Vietnamese army captain who arranges to come to America after the Fall of Saigon, and while building a new life with other Vietnamese refugees in Los Angeles is secretly reporting back to his communist superiors in Vietnam. The Sympathizer is a blistering exploration of identity and America, a gripping espionage novel, and a powerful story of love and friendship."

Brewery Book Club:  Bottomland

Brewery Book Club: Bottomland

Join us for the 5th meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

May's book is Bottomland by Michelle Hoover, which is also the 2017 All Iowa Read.  All Iowa Reads are organized by the Iowa Center for the Book, the purpose of which is to "foster a sense of unity [among Iowans] through reading."  

Based on a real life story of the author Michelle Hoover's grandmother, the book begins in Iowa in the wake of World War I. It was described in the Minneapolis Star Tribune as "a mystery wrapped in isolation and ethnic fear ... an atmospheric and engaging tale."

The book is available in paper, Kindle, and audio formats.  Brewery book club members are eligible for a 20% discount on book club books at Book World in Mason City.  

About Bottomland

At once intimate and sweeping, Bottomland follows the Hess family in the years after World War I as they attempt to rid themselves of the Anti-German sentiment that left a stain on their name. But when the youngest two daughters vanish in the middle of the night, the family must piece together what happened while struggling to maintain their life on the unforgiving Iowa plains.

In the weeks after Esther and Myrle's disappearance, their siblings desperately search for the sisters, combing the stark farmlands, their neighbors' houses, and the unfamiliar world of far-off Chicago. Have the girls run away to another farm? Have they gone to the city to seek a new life? Or were they abducted? Ostracized, misunderstood, and increasingly isolated in their tightly-knit small town in the wake of the war, the Hesses fear the worst. Told in the voices of the family patriarch and his children, this is a haunting literary mystery that spans decades before its resolution. Hoover deftly examines the intrepid ways a person can forge a life of their own despite the dangerous obstacles of prejudice and oppression.

Join us for a cozy afternoon concert with Des Moines-based roots-americana musician Ryne Doughty! Ryne says it's been a long time since he last played in Mason City (at CoffeeCat) so he's very excited to come back.

Ryne's third studio album, "Under The Willow Tree", was released February 1st and is now for sale at his live shows, iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon and Spotify. 

For more info about Ryne and to listen to some of his music or buy his cds, visit: www.rynedoughty.net/

No admission fee. As usual, FHB is a 21+ venue. 


About Ryne

"Ryne Doughty is a roots-americana musician out of Des Moines whose music is deeply rooted in real life stories of love, loss, work, and play. His stripped down, earthy sound is directly influenced by the small, rural town where he was born and raised. The hard-working, simple living, and friendly way of life of the Midwest shines through his music that is understated yet complex and rich with beauty and realness. 

Playing behind his third studio album, “Under the Willow Tree”, Doughty is back in Iowa after a few years in the mountains of Colorado and is starting to make a name for himself in the Midwest scene. Whether he's playing small or large venues, he is turning heads wherever he plays.

With solid finger-style guitar picking and a rich baritone voice he brings a dynamic of warmth and richness to the stage. Doughty’s performances are always passionate and full of energy and songs that tell real life stories. His live performance and studio albums alike will not leave you wanting. Doughty’s main passion in life is to share his music with the very people who help influence it; the real, hard working, everyday people that make this beautiful world go around."

Brewery Book Club:  The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Brewery Book Club: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Join us for the 4th meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

April's book is award-winning best seller The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.  Part biography, part science lesson, the book explores the life and medical treatment of a woman with cancer in the 1950s.  It tells a "riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew."  This book is sure to divide opinion and make for a great topic of passionate discussion.

The book is available in paper, kindle, and audio formats.  Book club members are eligible for a 20% discount at Book World in Southbridge Mall, but they should call ahead to order their copy several weeks before they'd like to start reading (641-424-2665).  The Mason City Public Library has several paper copies and one audio copy on CD.  

About the book:

From a single, abbreviated life grew a seemingly immortal line of cells that made some of the most crucial innovations in modern science possible. And from that same life, and those cells, Rebecca Skloot has fashioned in The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks a fascinating and moving story of medicine and family, of how life is sustained in laboratories and in memory. Henrietta Lacks was a mother of five in Baltimore, a poor African American migrant from the tobacco farms of Virginia, who died from a cruelly aggressive cancer at the age of 30 in 1951. A sample of her cancerous tissue, taken without her knowledge or consent, as was the custom then, turned out to provide one of the holy grails of mid-century biology: human cells that could survive--even thrive--in the lab. Known as HeLa cells, their stunning potency gave scientists a building block for countless breakthroughs, beginning with the cure for polio. Meanwhile, Henrietta's family continued to live in poverty and frequently poor health, and their discovery decades later of her unknowing contribution--and her cells' strange survival--left them full of pride, anger, and suspicion. For a decade, Skloot doggedly but compassionately gathered the threads of these stories, slowly gaining the trust of the family while helping them learn the truth about Henrietta, and with their aid she tells a rich and haunting story that asks the questions, Who owns our bodies? And who carries our memories? --Tom Nissley

FHB Writers' Group Organizational Meeting & Introductory Mixer

FHB Writers' Group Organizational Meeting & Introductory Mixer

A Writers' Group at FHB will tentatively meet every 1st Thursday of the month at 7pm. Although the format is yet to be decided, we think the group would be a great opportunity for people interested in writing to share ideas, learn from each other, critique works-in-progress, and just have a place to complain about how writing is really hard and how it drives you crazy.

It is our hope that the group itself can decide the format/activities/schedule depending on the needs of the members and our first meeting would be a great time to talk about that. Our first meeting will be a mixer to get to know each other and a group brainstorming session to decide how we want to proceed going forward.

We'll be at the quieter tables near the brew area, most likely, but ask at the bar if you can't find us. 

The Writers' Group is open to anyone 21 years and over. All experience levels welcome. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry...whatever you're in to, we'll take you! 

If you have any questions, please comment here or email molly@fathillbrewing.com.

Cupcake Flight Night (sold out)

We had such a good time with our sold-out Donut Flight Night we're doing it again -- this time with CUPCAKES!

We're pairing four delicious mini cupcakes from Grandma Sugar's Cupcakery with four taster size Fat Hill Brewing beers. Although the final menu is yet to be set, start dreaming of a key lime cupcake with a crisp IPA, a chocolate pretzel cupcake with a roasty porter, caramel apple cupcake with a malty Dublin Red ale... the possibilities are endless! Different flavors in the cupcakes bring out flavors in the beer you may not have noticed before. It's a fun way to re-learn a beer you're already friends with ...and an easy way to try new ones.

Your $15 ticket price includes the cupcake flight and accompanying beers (four cupcakes/four beers). No substitutions.

Come in any time we're open on Wednesday, March 29 to claim your goodies! (4pm to 11pm)

Tickets are required for this event because we need to know how many cupcakes to order.  Please purchase your tickets through this link:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cupcake-flight-night-tickets-31615689378

Walk-in requests for cupcake flights unfortunately cannot be fulfilled. Due to space restrictions in the brewery, we are selling exactly 100 tickets and no more, so if you're interested we suggest you buy now.

We're selling these tickets super early because we think they'd make a perfect Valentine's or Galentine's gift for anybody on your list!

(Please note the cupcakes in the photo above are a bit bigger than the ones on the cupcake flights. Those will be a little bigger around than a quarter)

Afternoon with Authors
Mar

2:00 pm14:00

Afternoon with Authors

Please join us for a cozy afternoon with local authors!  Five local writers will be joining us from 2pm to 5pm to mingle, drink beer, sign, and sell their books.  Book lovers and aspiring writers are especially encouraged to attend.  Please help us support local authors and come say hello!

There are four main parts to our Afternoon with Authors:

 

1.  These authors will be in attendance, signing/selling books

Sherrie Hansen from St. Ansgar  -  writes historicals/romance

Tony Wirt from Lake Mills (originally)  -  writes thrillers

Peggy Bang from Mason City  -  writes about local architecture

Bartenn Mills from Forest City  -  writes mysteries

Kellina Kilts from Mason City  -  writes fantasy/romance

 

2.  There will be a giant table of FREE books.  Your donations of gently used books are welcome for this table, if you have books to get rid of.  Anyone is welcome to as many books as they like.  Any leftovers will be donated to libraries or other non-profits that request them.

 

3.  A chance at a book shopping spree! Our partner for this event is our local bookseller, Book World of Mason City, located in Southbridge Mall.  They donated two gift certificates we'll raffle off!  (No charge or purchase necessary to participate in the raffle.)  

 

4. Book club and writer's group sign-up sheets and info. At FHB, we have a monthly book club and we're thinking of starting a writer's group, too! We're also looking for feedback on what other bookish events you'd like to see.

 

Not a fan of beer or cider?  That's ok!  Don't feel pressured to purchase anything in order to attend the event.   

As usual, this is a 21+ event.

Also, please don't forget about the North Iowa Book Bash on April 8th!  They'll have LOTS of authors at that event, and they'll all be different than the ones at the FHB event, so any book lover should plan to attend both.  

Are you a local author and not on our list?  Due to limited space, we've kept our guest authors for this event at a strict five.  If the event goes well, though, we'd love to do the same event again in the fall with a different set of authors.  If you're interested in being involved in that event or similar events, please email contact@fathillbrewing.com.

We're saving our bold, boozy Irish beer until St. Patrick's Day.  Come in any time we're open on Friday, March 17, to make sure you're one of the first people to try it!

We're calling it the DOUBLE DUBLIN and it's an Imperial Irish Red. Toast the luck of the Irish with this 9%, 12 IBU malty delight. We enhanced an Irish Red Ale recipe by doubling the malt and hops, creating smooth flavors that will remind you of a mix of dark stone fruit, toffee, and caramely sweetness.

Brewery Book Club:  One Hundred Years of Solitude

Brewery Book Club: One Hundred Years of Solitude

Join us for the 3rd meeting of the FHB book club!  We meet once a month at the brewery (3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 pm) and anyone is welcome to come or not come based on their interest in that month's book. No commitment, no stress...just a chance to learn something new, share your opinions, and meet fellow supernerds. The book discussion is lead by our resident bookworm and brewery co-owner, Molly.

Our book for March is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez.  The title makes it sound like it's just one big bummer but we promise you it's not!  It's strange and pretty and makes you think, full of language so unique you'll remember little bits for years after you read it.  When talking about the book, we'll also discuss magical realism as the author uses it here (writing in the 1960s) and examples of the style we find in contemporary books/TV/movies (there are a LOT!).  

Here's more info about the book:

(from the Barnes and Noble website)

One of the 20th century's enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world, and the ultimate achievement in a Nobel Prize–winning career.

The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the noble, ridiculous, beautiful, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America.

Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youth and senility -- the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peace and truth -- these universal themes dominate the novel. Whether he is describing an affair of passion or the voracity of capitalism and the corruption of government, Gabriel García Márquez always writes with the simplicity, ease, and purity that are the mark of a master.

Alternately reverential and comical, One Hundred Years of Solitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a new consciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, this stunning work is no less than an accounting of the history of the human race.
