I sampled a few seasonals again on a trip and was not impressed. Like before, they are certainly trying, but the efforts are fairly lacking. The food, however, is very good. I had been here when it was the previous business. The beer is not much better, but they are certainly trying. They had the usual range of styles, plus a few slightly more adventurous. Overall, a very average experience, but considering where you are at, you canít be very picky. Probably the best of the three brewpubs in Arkansas.

This is the best brew pub in town. Excellent food, beer is decent but can be better...

For the area of the country, this brewpub was pretty solid. Atmosphere was razorback collegiate territory for sure along with more of a restaurant type ambiance than anything pubby, although Iíd imagine it gets pretty sports pubby during big games. The beer selection was pretty standard in terms of number of selections. Quality was good, yet short of excellent. The food was solid.

The food was pretty good, but the beer was not so special. Youíll have a better time next dor at the nearby Brewskiís. Unfortunately, Brewskiís allows smoking.

Cool ambiance, with lots of old brick and huge wooden beams with cool bracing. Service was pretty good, substituting the barleywine into a sampler for me and even providing a snifter. I really liked the chicken bacon sandwich and the fries were excellent. My wife had a crab stuffed avacado which looked good, but I was busy sticking my nose into my glass.
Now, about the "too cold" thing. Why serve beer this cold? Here is a quote from their website: "New taps and beer lines have been upgraded to provide colder beer." Colder beer! We donít want colder beer. I guess the good folks of Northwest Arkansas want colder beer.

Nice place, pretty decent beers. Not terribly adventurous though. The wait staff was excited about a barleywine that was going to be ready in a few weeks, so maybe I caught it at a bad time. I had a few beers in 15oz mugs, but beware - they serve their beers very cold in frozen mugs. So, I highly recommend asking for a non-frozen glass. The beer itself is still 10 to 20 degrees too cold, but at least it has a winning shot at making it to a decent temp. Seriously! A stout at 30 degrees? Argh. Anyway, neat ambiance, very cool building, and helpful staff. Iíd go back.

Alas for another silly pig-named business in Arkansas! Ah well. In spite of the name, this is a pretty fun spot. Their range house-brewed beer is on the predictable side of brewpub offerings, but mostly pretty solid stuff. In addition to their beer, there are another eight or so varieties on tap, and about fifty varieties of bottles available. Havenít tried most of their menu yet, but the burgers are top-notch. (How many places these days will actually let you order a burger medium rare?) Very cool exposed-timber and brick building.
