The Mash House produces one of NC's best beers. That is enough to get me to drive the hour of heavily trafficked interstates to reach them.

The brewery is behind glass walls on the other side of the bar. It's hard to believe such a small brewery can supply such great beers. I am a big fan of the IPA, but they also brew a very nice schwarzbier, a good kolsch, a solid red, and their new pale ale is also a good option. I would try the sampler, unless you plan to hang out there a while.

The food here is American Taproom style. The servers are educated about the product they create and serve. The beer selection is broad, with multiple styles being served all of the time. If you're in the area please don't miss The Mash House.

A very good local brew pub / restaurant. Service is always good, the food is delicious, and the beer varieties are great. My favorites are the oyster appetizer, their strip steak, and they have a decent hefeweizen.

This place was great. Great vibe in a wide open space. When you first walk in, the bar area is to your left and the seating/dining area is to your right. Bar is seat yourself, and there are plenty of tables along with the bar seats. Tons of televisions, likely tuned in to all the ACC sporting events. Nice feel, and this place gets packed on weekends, but you never really feel packed. It gets loud, but you never feel like you are shouting or being deafened by the ambient noise. Really good atmosphere overall. The staff is very helpful, prompt, and friendly. The food was great. There is quite a selection, with some gastropub, some steak house, some TexMex, and even some Italian. Really something for everyone. The beer selection was very decent. I think they had 9 taps going when I was there. Seasonal offerings rotate, and samplers are available to try things out before you decide. Beer to go is also an option, with growlers available through the bar. Very reasonably priced, and in Fayetteville, craft beer options are limited, so this place is definitely worth checking out.

Stop #413 on world brewery tour during an unusual snowstorm for this part of the country.

Visited after dinner and beers at the other brewpub in town - Huske Hardware.

Mash house is more of an upscale establishment on the outskirts of town and right next to a bunch of hotels (including the one we were staying at which was nice).

They had a Belgian Triple and a silver medal GABF IPA which I found myself getting a couple of - very nice.

The servers were a couple of young community college kids who had no interest in interacting with the customers. It was pretty funny that after they served a beer to someone at the bar they would turn their back to talk to each other and ignore the customers. Had the service been better, my score would be inline with the overall average.

The wife and I were on our way to Disney World and we choose Fayetteville as our in-between stop from DC to Orlando. We stayed at the Wingate next door. Highly recommend that place.

Atmosphere: We got there late at night after being in a car for 6 hours, but we thought it was rather peaceful, especially considering it was a Friday night. Inside, there were lots of tanks and whatnot. One note: The entranceway reminded us of a Hollywood movie.

Quality and Service: Impeccable all around. Our waitress absolutely loved her job, spent a good amount of time talking to us, had a good understanding of the beers, and allowed us to stay a little while after closing.

Selection: Every craft bar should have such. All the standard styles were represented.

Food: We had some nachos and one other appetizer and they were both excellent.

Value: I've lived in DC for over a decade now and have lost my compass in this area. To me, the prices we amazing.

Visited the Mash House on the last day of a business trip. Nice looking modern decor. I thought it was a chain. Lots of nooks and crannies as well as a large dining area. A very comfortable place. I didn't notice any guest beers. They had their own Red Ale, Hefe, IPA, Porter and Stout as the regular beers with a Maibock as the special beer.

The waitress was reasonably knowledgeable on beer, nice looking, pleasant and efficient.

Good selection of appetizers and entrees I had nachos and a Balsamic Chicken dish that were both good.

The beers came in appropriate glasses. The Hefeweizen and IPA were solidly representative of style...not spectacularly WOW!!! but good all the same. I had the Maibock at the end and after the meal and 2 other beers...the last one being an IPA...I probably was not in the best position to rate it (so I won't). It seemed pretty good though. A good place...food a bit pricy but an overall pleasant evening with good beer.

Stopped by this brewpub while visiting Fayetteville, on a Saturday night.

The place was full, there was a wait for the dining area, so we took one of the small tables in the bar section. Atomsphere was similar to most modern restaurants, but after about 9:30pm, they had a DJ in the bar area and karaoke.

The quality and selection of the beers was about average, they had 7 or 8 beers available. Nothing too crazy or aventurous, but enough variety that you could find a style you would like. They offered 4oz sample flights, pints, and then a few varieties of large vessels for sharing.

Our server was attentive and friendly, and the appetizers we ordered were fine. Beer was priced fine, but the cocktails and food was a bit high.

The Mash House is a popular place, however, it is Fayetteville, NC. so enough said. This visit two weeks ago was my third time in the Mash House, first time to try the food.

A very attractive hostess took us to our table. I ordered a porterhouse and the beer sampler. The service was great, very friendly staff.

The Hefeweizen was good, far from being a great Hefewiezen. I would drink this beer again at the Mash House, it was the best of the four offered. Good flavor and aroma, ended up with three glasses.

The Porter was simply not good, very disappointing as I rarely find a Porter that I don't like.

The Stout was really bad, tasted like someone dumped a large pot of very stale coffee amongst other things into the vat. Again, it is rare that I find a Stout that I don't like, this one was just plain bad.

The other beer was drinkable, but not noteworthy.

Oh, by the way the steak was a great disappointment, ordered extra rare, served nearly medium. Definitely not worth the money.

Overall, when in Fayetteville, NC. there are worse places to eat and have a beer. I will state that the service and employees were great, yes, I will return and no, I will not order food as it is very overpriced.

The Mash House brewpub is in a modern stand alone building not far from the shopping center area. It's designed like a chain restaurant in that one is confronted by the hostess stand upon entering the front door. The large bar area is to the left, and a very large dining area to the right. The brewing operation is visible through windows behind the bar. They have 5 year round brews on tap, as well as a seasonal, and no guest beers. The beers are tasty and seem true to style. An award from the GABF is on display as well as local awards. The food was good but seemed pricey.

Dropped in for a lite lunch while passing nearby. I did the beer sampler and it was overall average. The IPA was by far the best offering; the beers tend to be either thin or lacking of character but generally without flaws except for the porter which had a lacto bacillus infection (dump it). The food was quite good. White table cloths, chops & beer are an intersting combo; I'd personally feel more comfortable without the fine dining formality... Did I mention the food was really good? I give the beer a C and the food will not disappoint.

Visited the Mash House with some friends as part of a brew pub tour of Fayetteville. We stopped here for lunch and sampled all of their house beers. The atmosphere is everything you'd expect from a chop-house-style restaurant: a bit dimly lit in an elegant kind of way, wood trimmed dining room, open kitchen. The menu was a combination of steak house luxury and brew pub fare. Being lunch, we stuck to the sandwiches and pizzas and were certainly happy with our selections.

Regarding the beer, we got a few "Mondo Mash" samplers of all of their beers as well as a couple of glasses of their special Jack'd up Stout to try. While not the most adventurous or complex beers, each one was quite good. One small downside was that the server, although quite nice and attentive, was certainly not well-versed in craft beer, often commenting that "my husband likes that one". I'd be willing to give her a pass since it was a Saturday afternoon, but I have a feeling that this place is aiming for the staff to meet the needs of the chop house crowd more than the craft beer crowd. That being said, it is still obvious that the beer is an integral part of the restaurant's vision and not a mere afterthought.

Overall, a very nice menu and tasty, well-made beers make this one a great place for a nice dinner on the weekend or drinks with friends.
