Really more of a restaurant than a bar. Very corporate feel, as evidenced by the khaki and polo shirt staff uniforms that seem to be compulsory. All Hog Haus beers are now being made at Saddlebock, so I’m not sure this place should still be classified as a brewpub. In fact, there was a lot of confusion amongst the bar staff when I asked for a sampler of Hog Haus beers. They initially explained that none were available, then conceded that there’s a few beers that they’re still labeling as their own. There’s about 8 beers on tap, a few from ’Hog Haus’, the rest from Saddlebock. The beers I tried were uniformly disappointing, not a surprise given that most Saddlebock I’ve tried so far has been quite underwhelming. Prices on Dickson St in general are high for the area. Overall, really only a place to stop by if you want some Arkansas ticks. Otherwise, head elsewhere.
The Hog Haus Brewing has gone down last few years. The place is showing it’s age on the outside. The Curly Tail at one time was a very good beer. No so much now. Service is good but the beer not so much. At one time use to pick up kegs of Curly Tail for home events. Not now. The few beers I tried last time I was there aren’t as good as before.
I've been here many times. The food is always good to very good. The beer not so much. They clearly don't put much effort or money into making good beer. Most are mediocre mad a few downright bad. I've heard that Jesse Core from Core Brewing is doing their beer now bit I've seen no evidence of it. I've been here twice recently and still no stout on tap. Don't go for the beer. Eat here and then drive up to Core. Maybe someday they'll put Core on tap here.
Had lunch there today. The food was better than the beer. The house brewed Curly Tail tasted like a light beer. Would try again if back in Fayetteville. They offered a tasting flight but didn"t have time to try it.
The smell of wort greeted me in the oarking lot, always a good sign - and an extra point for atmosphere. The beers were decent enough with no stand outs. Food was tasty, classy pub grub, and the service was fine. Pay oarking only though.
A pretty neat brewpub in the college town of Fayetteville. It is a large place with plenty of seating, TVs to watch sports on. There was a decent number of beers on tap (maybe 7-8), including some interesting styles like java porter and imperial stout. They offer a variety of sizes. The beers varied from decent to good and although there was room to improve, you could see they were going in the right direction. It seems they have improved compared to earlier ratings as well. I’m not sure how often the beers are rotated, I think there are are 1-2 seasonals. The food was good - I got a tasty salad. Overall, it is quite good for the area and I’d recommend it if you’re passing by!
Right on a main campus drag ,a nice two level restaurant with lots of wood framing and brick walls, casual lighting makes it comfortable on a Monday evening. 9 beers and a root beer on tap. Service was adequate, and the menu had some interesting options, especially teh shrimp stuffed bacon wrapped jalapenos which were delicious. Beers were average.
