We use no preservatives and only the finest ingredients at our on-site microbrewery: malted barley, hops, yeast and pure water. Our beer begins in our grain silo out front, is converted into "mash" with the addition of water, then ferments and ages in our custom-designed brewhouse — assuring our customers will receive the freshest pint possible. Mash House has a regular brew of Porters, Stouts, Blondes, Hefes, Reds and highly anticipated seasonal blends available on a limited basis throughout the year. Each year since 2006, the Mash House has racked up numerous gold, silver and bronze medals at the annual Carolinas Championships of Beer, including gold medals for its Blonde and Hefeweizen and a silver medal for its Schwarzbier in 2011.
Introducing the NEW MASH HOUSE BREWMASTER: Reuben Stocks!
No you won't hear a heartfelt song out of this Reuben, but you WILL taste his delicious, unique and diverse brews at all of the Rocky Top restaurants!
Though Reuben calls Clayton, NC home with his wife and two kids, this family man will be spending many hours in his new second home, The Mash House Brewery. Even before he was of legal age, Reuben was intrigued by the brewing process (but don't tell his parents!). College degrees and assorted career paths just couldn't compete with his infatuation for the world of craft beer. So much in fact that, nine years ago, he put his knowledge and expertise to work and created his own home brewing system. Combining his passion for the process and his electrical and mechanical expertise, Reuben continuously refined his system to create a home brewing kit that is offered on the retail market today. And it just so happens that during that time, he was working with Rocky Top to maintain and refine The Mash House brewery process, so he knows the system like the back of his hand.
Currently, The Mash House Brewery produces around 1400 barrels of brew per year. We produce such a high volume and quality of brews that only the most skilled and knowledgeable brewmasters can handle such an undertaking. Reuben is just the man for the job! His passion, intelligence, creativity and expertise makes for a perfect fit as the NEW BREWMASTER for Rocky Top's award winning brewery. Visit one of our Rocky Top restaurants and try one of our famous Mash House blends. You won't be disappointed!
