Heady Hollow Brewing Closes Fishers Location Oct. 29; Space to Be Taken By Mashcraft Brewing
In a story first reported by the Indianapolis Star website on the morning of Oct. 26, Heady Hollow Brewing (11069 Allisonville Rd.) will close on October 29. Heady Hollow was the first craft brewery to open in Fishers, followed later by Four Day Ray (11671 Lantern Road), and is owned by George Garrison and Keefe Pietri, with Keefe as head brewer. Heady Hollow opened to the public in August of 2015.
As reported by Amy Haneline of the Indpls. Star, the closure is due to “unexpected circumstances.” Heady Hollow posted on its Facebook page, “the last two years have been a rewarding experience…..please come by before then, grab a beer, and share in the good memories we’ve made.”
The Facebook post also indicates that Greenwood-based Mashcraft Brewing (1140 N. St Rd. 135) will be talking over the space vacated by Heady Hollow. No specific timeline is given for reopening under the Mashcraft name, but that, “Mashcraft will be taking over beer and service operations in the next couple of months.”
This will represent another expansion for Mashcraft, having opened Mashcraft on Delaware (2205 N. Delaware) in December of 2016. Owner and head brewer Andrew Castner produces beer at the Greenwood location, with a pilot system located at the Delaware Street location. It remains to be seen if the Heady Hollow system will be used to brew beer at the new Allisonville location.
