Fiddle & Whistle Irish Pub

Marshalltown's Only Irish Pub! 14 imported and craft beers on tap. A variety of bottles, and a variety of handcrafted cocktails for every season. Specials daily! Free WiFi, but the company, music and conversation is too good for the need�

In villages all over Ireland, pub culture plays a pivotal role in social life. Village folks don't sit in front of the television after supper; they meet at the local pub. These pubs have a special ambiance and charm, which invites people to relax and be themselves. They enjoy the art of conversation, carouse in music and indulge in distinctive beer. All this adds up to a fun, down-to-earth experience that the Irish call "Craic." Craic (pronounced “crack”) is not something that you can hold in your hand, nor can you see it on the wall, yet when you walk into a pub and it is there, you definitely feel it. Craic is that little something extra that you do for each of your guests so that they have a great time when they come to visit. Fiddle & Whistle’s craic is what we hope will bring you back again and again. Céad míle fáilte Cheers! Aaron and Michele Buzbee

Hello pub friends!

Michele and I have been fortunate enough to have been asked to be a part of a web-based docu-series featuring Iowa entrepreneurs that is being released in 2020. The majority of the episode has already been shot but the producer is asking for one final shot of a busy pub while I play a live song I have written.

The shoot is at 6:30pm tomorrow (September 12th) and we'd love to have you there. Now it may require a couple takes so you may have to listen to the song a couple times, so for your trouble we are offering a free drink on us if you come between 6-7pm.

We'd be so honored to see you there.

Aaron Buzbee

Need to cool off with an ice cold beer stop in the Fiddle and choose from one of our domestics or from one of our 14 beers on tap!

One Year ago our beautiful city experienced something we thought would never happen.
An F3 tornado ran its course through the heart of our town. And it changed us.
In an impressive show of the true nature of humanity, the people of our town wasted no time rolling up their sleeves and getting to work. Neighbor helping Neighbor. Stranger helping Stranger.
Over the past 12 months we have watched the people of our city grow stronger and more compassionate to one another. In the midst of a disaster, we created something beautiful; Unity.
Our Gratitude to still be here, at 20 W Main Street, is forever overflowing.
We Love You, Marshalltown.
#unity #marshalltownstrong

Random Beer Fact: Before thermometers were invented, brewers would dip a thumb or finger into their concoction to find the right temperature for adding the yeast. Too cold, and the yeast wouldn’t grow. Too hot, and the yeast would die. This thumb in the beer is where the phrase “rule of thumb” comes from!

Be grateful we developed a more hygienic process AND that it's FRIDAY! See you at 3:00!

Random Beer Fact: The foamy head is an extremely important part of your beer. It is formed by a complex carbon-dioxide reaction and can say a lot about the quality and method behind the brew in your hand. If the head is missing, it can mean that your beer is flat and bland-tasting. The head allows for certain aromas to come through as you sip. And since our sense of smell directly correlates with taste - you want that foam!

We've got $3.50, 16 oz Black and Tans today, as well as Dollar Cans of PBR and Miller High Life.

You know what it is! Wednesday! Come get your soup 😉 #whiskeywednesday

It's that time of the week again, join us for Whiskey Wednesday, some Cards Against Humanity and a Good Time!
