The Recreation Parlor

As the only bar operating in Gravette, AR – let alone brewery! – The Recreation Parlor is a welcoming haven for beer-lovers that find themselves off the beaten path. The brewery first opened in the summer of 2021 thanks to a pair of former home brewers from Nebraska who worked to reclaim the space and return it to its former glory. While you sample a cold beer made just on the other side of the wall, you’ll find yourself surrounded by exposed bricks from the original 1889 construction and a wide variety of beer memorabilia and signage from all eras. The Recreation Parlor manages to feel like a sports bar and a small hometown brewery at the same time, and the beers follow suit. Their flagship beer, Loophole Lager, is a Mexican lager that was specifically brewed with craft beer novices in mind. Laid back, funky, artsy, sportsy, and maybe haunted (depending on who you ask), The Recreation Parlor is absolutely worth a visit. Don’t miss the commissioned mural of Ozark legend Ed Stilley just outside the front door!
