WHEREAS local beer brewed in Northwest Arkansas is the best beer…
Okay, it didn’t go exactly like that. But Governor Asa Hutchinson really has declared March 6-12, 2022 Arkansas Craft Beer Week!
Those of us already in the know about the Fayetteville Ale Trail and the delectable brews we’re graced with in Northwest Arkansas are no strangers to the ever-growing craft beer industry. As far as we’re concerned, this proclamation is just proof that we’ve been right all along! Jokes aside, the nod to craft brewers in our state shines a much-deserved spotlight on the homegrown beer culture we’ve grown together.
You’ll have the perfect opportunity to celebrate on Saturday, March 12, as Arkansas Craft Beer Week finishes up with Pint Day. Each participating brewery will have a special promotion that includes a collectable, commemorative pint glass to take home with you. Plus, most breweries are expected to donate $1/pint back to the Arkansas Brewers Guild to promote and protect craft brewing in Arkansas. And all you have to do is drink beer! Win-win-win!
Seven Fayetteville Ale Trail stops are participating in this year’s festivities:
During Arkansas Craft Beer Week, you can drop by Bentonville Brewing Company for A Conversation with Local Brewers, Euchre Night, and a Pint Day complete with live Irish folk dancing. Try their recent release, Spring Wrecker IPA for the full experience! Apple Blossom Brewing is giving away an Arkansas pint day glass with the purchase of a pint of Apple Blossom Brewery beer. New Province Brewing Company will offer 25% off your to-go cans with a pint or flight purchase on Tuesday, Happy Hour on Thursday, and select beers for $3 on Pint Day. Grab a pint of their 6th Anniversary Imperial Stout or recently released The Grains of Wrath, an unaged young Barleywine. Ozark Beer Company just released a revised version of their 2017 Shagbark Brown that would look lovely in that commemorative pint glass! They’re also cohosting a basic road bike mechanics workshop with Arkansas Latinas en Bici on Wednesday evening of Craft Beer Week. Natural State Beer Company has a Pint Day event with discounted beer with Arkansas Brewers Guild pint glass!
You can’t go wrong, no matter where you choose to sip. Get out and support all of your local brewers – especially those on the Fayetteville Ale Trail! – while you enjoy Arkansas Craft Beer Week. Cheers!
