MashCraft Brewing may have started on the southside of Indianapolis, but over the past several years, they have become a staple of Fishers’ restaurant and craft beer scene.
Located off Allisonville Road near 116th Street, MashCraft’s relaxed atmosphere attracts families and beer enthusiasts alike. MashCraft’s taps feature five house beers, along with an ever-changing array of unique seasonal brews and infusions.
MashCraft’s inventive infusions are truly one-of-a-kind. One of their most popular beers, the Jamaica Joe, is a red ale infused with coffee from Strange Brew in Greenwood. The last Sunday of every month, MashCraft infuses four of their house beers with coffees from different local companies. The coffee-infused brews are available as a flight for sampling along with a breakfast special.
To spice things up, MashCraft offers a new pepper infused beer the second Wednesday of the month (available while supplies last). Past concoctions have included a pickle beer, green pepper beer, and Anaheim pepper beer.
The family friendly dining room at MashCraft Fishers boasts a large menu, which manager David Halt describes as “upscale pub food.”
The Fishers food menu is the largest of MashCraft’s three locations (MashCraft Brewing has locations in Greenwood and Indianapolis, as well).
5280 Bistro’s Joe Hsu helped to develop and shape the Fishers menu, which includes mouth-watering favorites such as Let Go My Tachos (braised chicken and beef, queso blanco, fresco cheese, salsa verde,
and seasonal herbs served over a bed of tater tots) and the Not Yo’ Mama Burger (grass-fed angus beef blended with bacon, cheddar cheese, and jalapeño).
Another best-seller, the Bavarian style soft pretzel served with garlic beer cheese or queso blanco, is available at all MashCraft locations. The menu also includes a charcuterie board and flatbread options. Brunch is also available on the weekends.
Since opening in Fishers in January 2018, MashCraft has established a large base of regulars, and has even named some of their beers after their loyal patrons.
“We want to be a place for our community,” said Halt. “It’s important for us to be active in our neighborhood and to build relationships with our customers.”
