Small brewery but with super friendly staff. 5 brews on tap, all very drinkable. Tours on the weekend. Good luck with the new brewery.

Loved this place. Very small. Yet, friendly staff. Very hospitable. Explain the history of the brewery and thier brews. Greeted and waited on by "Bones". Nice guy. Met the owners. Growlers are inexpensive and filled with your selection of any awesome brew they have on tap. I personally loved the place. Looking forward to seeing thier new location opening in the spring. A+++++

Quirky little brewery. FIrst off, itís a great deal - $7 for a tour, 3 tastings, and a pint glass is a steal. The downsides are that itís led by a volunteer who may or may not know anything about beer - he used his notes often and alluded to the fact that the brewers pay him in beer to give tours. FIne and all, but itís different. The tour was busy and the facility (besides the tasting room) was HOT. Therefore, my advice is to go in the winter. Finally the tastings at the end was kind of a disaster and took forevr, simply because they donít "pre-pour" - you have to order every sample individually from some poor "bartender", who Iím pretty sure is a thankless volunteer as well. Maybe Sundayís tour is less crowded.

Brewery tasting room not much more. Four basic beers on tap. $7 for a tour, flight, and glass. I would go back because it is close to Vinoís.

Stopped here during a stop in LR and really enjoyed myself. Small tasting room at the front of the place. Looks like a small firehouse but used to me an old car dealership. Tours on the weekend come with 2 free beer tokens and an up close and personal look at the brewery. Also a good place to pick up bottles and I was told the only place you can buy beer on Sunday in the LR area. Draft root beer for DDís and kids as well.

December 2010. Get good directions and make sure you go in the right door. Neat little tasting room and some down-home Arkansas hospitality awaits. Have had and enjoyed DBís beers before -- was neat to go to the source. Wish I couldíve stayed longer than one. Good folks. Good beer. (Brewery #527).

Nice place to stop anytime youíre in Little Rock. Cool little tasting room right next to the brewery (ah, sweet mash). Friendly and knowledgeable staff helped me out before their normal retail hours. I volunteered to help bottle, in exchange for beer, the next time I was in town. Very reasonable prices and a pretty good rootbeer too.

Dropped in and he asked me if I was there to help bottle. If only I lived near a place like that, seems they do a lot with volunteers and pay in beer. Anyway, didnít have time to help, but grabbed a few sixers. Credit card only on a Thursday, their regular open growler hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday when they will take cash. No tour but looked around, looks like an old firehouse or something with two big garage doors. Could smell the mash from the tasting room. They have all their beers available in bottles and about 6 of them for growler fills including a root beer for the underaged or designated.

Small brewery (relatively) down the street from Vinoís. The sales manager Joseph is a great guy and really cares about the product. Itís evident from his attitude, that the brewers and the owners share the same passion. One of the most unique tours Iíve ever been on. I loved that they named all their tanks and pieces of machinery. This is an absolute must stop for anyone passing through the state!

this is a working brewery that has the ability to stop what they are doing and serve you some really good beer. The only reason I rated it this low is that they really arenít trying to compete with bars. They have good beer and have a neat little bar area for you to try only what they make. I love stopping by after work and visiting and talking beer. You can see the plant from the tasting bar. When you visit LR come here, youíll enjoy it. Bob is the brewer, heís a regular guy that likes to talk about beer. Thurs and Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons are the best.
