Make plans to head to Lost Forty Brewing for today’scollab – the Blue Sail Mocha Stout. Think a rich, chocolatey, buzz-worthy, coffee-berry treat.

If you like sweets, keep your eyes on Stone’s Throw Brewing this week. On Tuesday, April 11, catch theevent, and discover which brew goes best with a Samoa, Tagalong and more. Also, get into the Easter Spirit with baked goods and beer this coming Saturday at the event.
Get into the Spring spirit by checking out Flyway Brewing’s Cloudsplitter Pilsner, which goes on today. German Pilsner malts and Saaz hops are used to create this traditional European Pilsner. At 5.5% ABV, the brew is a clean, easy-drinker with a crisp 35 IBU bite. Make Flyway your prime Arkansas Traveler’s pregame spot.
