On a gravel road just east of Fayetteville, a beautiful sight for beer lovers appears! Right along what is known as “the road to the Buffalo River” to so many, Orthodox Farmhouse Brewery beckons visitors with their stunning taproom and wide-open pastures. Once you get a closer look, you’ll recognize the craftsmanship and care taken with every inch of the space – and that’s before you’ve even had a beer! Owners Ashlyn & Jesse Gagnon built the American Farmhouse Brewery from the ground up (literally) with their own hands (literally) and the result is a gorgeous testament to the beauty of the Arkansas Ozarks. The beer follows suit, with a lineup of Belgian-inspired beers crafted with patience and thorough attention to detail. Though it’s just outside of Fayetteville, a visit to Orthodox Farmhouse Brewery feels rural, pastoral, and historical. Take this as your invitation to slow down and reconnect with a cold one in hand.
