This place is sort of a dive pizzeria, with a tiny brewery in the room next door. The line was out the door when we arrived, since you order everything at the bar. We ordered a flight and a pzza, which tied up the line for a bit, but nobody seemed to mind. There are a few tables in the main pizzeria part, more tables in the brwery part, and a deck out back. Six beers of their own plus a bunch of macros, and one Prairie. The beers were mediocre but inoffensive, and the pizza was pretty good. Worth a stop.
A dive bar, that is fun with a great friendly staff. Selection was their own and some guest taps which was nice. I didn’t eat but the food looked good. Prices were reasonable. Beer was served in plastic cups, which is just stupid. Their brew wasn’t that great and I would be hard pressed to find one I liked enough to order again.
Eclectic little joint on the outskirts of downtown Little Rock in an older building with high, vaulted ceilings. Decorative local artwork adorns the walls. They only had 6 house brews but had a few others to choose from, not the best selection, but at least no BMC’s on tap. Food is average.
December 2010. Can’t decide if the vibe here should be described as ’groovy’ or ’dingy’. Not exactly an upscale joint in any case, Vino’s still delivered a very good pizza pie and a handful of sturdy and yummy, if technically imperfect beers. I couldn’t decide, either, if the staff was cool or just "too cool for school." Nonetheless, I enjoyed my visit and would return. (Brewery #525).
A welcomingly grungy place that seemed to be a hit with local diners. We visited just after 11am and found a line out the door of people waiting to order pizza. Solid music selection. It’s certainly a ballsy decision to be blasting early period New Order before noon, but I appreciated it. Luckily the crowd died down and we were able to grab a flight and a table with a view of the brewing equipment. Unfortunately the house beers were middling at best. The pizza was a bit better than average, but well-priced. Decent spot.

Updated 6/19/12: After visiting Vinos a couple handfuls of times over the last year since my original rating I feel like I have a different perspective on Vinos. They usually have somewhere between 3-6 of their own beers, and it always seems to vary without any predictability. They also get some interesting guest taps (generally the latest Lips of Faith to hit Arkansas or a Boulevard special/seasonal). The food is quite good, especially for Little Rock. The beers, while not generally outstanding, tend to be interesting, and certainly drinkable. The service is good, the people are nice, the place is quite chill, and the prices are great. I’d say to go here first if you are in Little Rock and only have time to visit one beer related locale. It is much more unique then Boscos or Saucer, which you can also find other places. Anyway, I was way low originally. This place gets a well deserved a re-rate.
6/22/11: I visited this place earlier this week. It was a bit of a strange place in that, it is basically just a run of the mill pizza place that happens to brew beer. I was thinking I’d go in and sit down at the bat and enjoy a beer, well no dice, all I could do was order food and pay for it up-front, then grab a seat where my food would be delivered. This makes sense for a pizza place, but it was kind of odd for a place where you are drinking a beer (or several). Also, they only had 3 of their own beers on tap (I don’t know if that is normal), but it was a pretty weak selection. The food was good for Little Rock, but it’s still a pizza place in Arkansas (if you know what I mean). Prices were pretty good, I had 2 beers and dinner for like $15. You can’t even pray to do that in NY... My score would have been higher if they had more then 3 of their own beers on tap, that was just weak! (Old score: 3/7/5/6/9/13: 56)
A small, nearly claustrophobic feel up front. However, this place is a lot bigger than it first appears if you walk around. The atmosphere was laid back, reminded me of a college bar. The calzone I had was excellent. The beers were a little below par, but the atmosphere was fun.
Don’t go here expecting the chain brewpub. This place is in a refurbished building. Outside it doesn’t look like much and inside about the same. Where the rubber meets the road the service was good, the beer was good, the selection was good, the food was good. Nice music just a cozy kinda place for me. What more do you need?
