Vinoís is THE spot for pizza and a cold one. They brew several of there own outstanding beers, of which I love their Lazy Boy Stout and their Rainbow Wheat. They also have several other taps that offer the likes of Guinness, Boddingtonís and selections from goose Island and New Belgium. The building looks a bit run down but for me thatís what give the place itís character I love Vinoís.
Donít go here expecting the chain brewpub. This place is in a refurbished building. Outside it doesnít 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?
House brews and pizza. Caters to the "weird" of Little Rock. Absolutely worth checking out for those from out of town. Itís about a 10 minute walk from Downtown Music Hall so I always make it a point to have a few pints here the night of a good show. The Ginger Wheat they brewed was outstanding. Lazy Boy stout is always a good choice - maybe not in conjunction with pizza... Managed by a couple dudes in a local band called Peckerwolf. You get the idea. Itís a must stop.
Cream Ale - clean light touch bitter in the finish Rainbow Wheat - hefeweizen light banana clove bit tangy overall good Dunkelweizen - banana clove present dark grains donít quite come through on on little astringent Pale Ale - English style light malt character with English hop flavor, little hop aroma IPA - more of any English style, hop bitterness is good, big English hop flavor, low hop aroma Stout - nice roast character, good hop malt balance, could be a little heavier n the body but excellent flavor Sausage calzone, very tasty, bit much on the ricotta Service is excellent

Overall a quaint beatnick style place with good food and standard brewpub beers. Beers were clean and to style with some minor flaws. Fantastic place to hang out over good beer then chase away the munchies with good pizza or giant calzone.

Very eclectic. You order at the counter, then they bring the pizza to the table. Good pizza. 6 of their own beers available, plus some other local beers (Diamond Bear), a few imports. A lot of piercings and tattoos. Service was very friendly.
stopped here on my stay in LR. Small place within walking distance from Diamond Bear, very good pizza, salads ect. Ordered the sampler on one visit and had a couple of guest beers on another visit. Live music on certain nights. Beers were pretty good as was the service. Prices are good too.
Vinoís is special. Itís a brewpub/music venue/sports bar. It is always a brewpub. The trappings are original art and beer memorabilia. There is an outdoor area with an upstairs deck. To get there you walk through the storage room and past the sacks of grain.
Walk in and order. They had eight of their own brews on tap, five other micros (Boulevard Tank 7, Fat Tire, and more), Guinness and Bass. At least another 12 beers in bottles (micro, domestic, imports), plus an assortment of wines.
For food: pizza, calzones, sandwiches, salads. I never had anything I did not like. Calzones are huge and delicious.
I have never seen another place like this in Little Rock. Back home in Oregon this place would blend right in, but around here it is a welcome oasis of "weirdness." A great place to eat and drink an afternoon away with friends.
First, Vinoís makes the best damn pizza I have ever eaten. Itís no wonder I gained 15 pounds over a year while living in Little Rock. Their house brews are consistently good, with their Firehouse Pale Ale being a favorite of mine. Also worth mentioning is their Lazyboy stout. I have noticed they are starting to brew "special" beer styles once in a while, such as RIS and Imperial IPA. Go for a decent brew and the incredible pizza.
this is by far my favorite place in little rock as it feels nothing like the rest of little rock. The pizza is kick ass, the beer is great session beer. I am definetely a huge fan and go there whenever i have an off day.
