Growlers

My favorite beer festival of the year is this weekend. Little Rocktoberfest is back at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock Saturday from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. This is the biggest Little Rocktoberfest yet, with most Arkansas breweries represented and plenty of craft beer to choose from. But the …




It’s a week for hopheads as several Central Arkansas breweries have IPAs (or IPL) newly on tap over the next few days. It starts today at Lost Forty Brewing, where the brew team is tapping its third and final batch in its “Trash Pandemonium” series. This version of Trash Panda …




Just go ahead and take the day off of work Friday, because that’s when Moody Brews excellent Cuban Pull Imperiale goes on tap at Vino’s. If you missed our Growlers feature last week, we covered the details of the beer there, so go back and check it out. Cuban Pull …

Three Central Arkansas breweries have new beers coming on tap this week, starting today with Lost Forty’s regular Freshcut Monday release. The taproom today has the second release of Blueberry Brunch Muffin, a 4.5% ABV gose. This light drinker has a sour backbone with notes of vanilla, blueberries and lemon …




After spending a day with the Arkansas Brewers Guild members at their quarterly tap takeover, I’m pretty sure that there’s no place in the country quite like Prestonrose Farm and Brewing Co. (see header photo). For several hours, the beer community sipped and chatted and laughed on the sloped lawn …




One of Central Arkansas’ best recurring IPAs is back this week at Rebel Kettle Brewing Company. In honor of National IPA Day, the brewery is releasing Headbanger’s Ball Double IPA for its 4:30 Thursday event. This year’s version has some changes, including a higher ABV at 9% and a less …




This week’s big event is at Stone’s Throw Brewing near MacArthur Park, where the brewery will throw its 6th Annual Block on Rock Birthday Bash. Every year Stone’s Throw holds one of the best parties around, shutting down two blocks of Rock St. and bringing out plenty of food trucks …




Lost Forty Brewing has a busy week that kicks off today at the taproom. For its Freshcut Monday release, Lost Forty is putting out a couple of large-format bottles. The first is Saison Victoria, a 6.3% ABV farmhouse-style ale with notes of allspice, red apple and tangerine. The brew team …




Springdale-based Black Apple Crossing cidery is expanding its distribution into Little Rock this week with a slew of release parties. There is a release event every night this week, starting with a Q&A session at Vino’s Brewpub tonight, then Lost Forty Brewing Tuesday, Petit and Keet Wednesday, Dickey-Stephens Park for …
