The Best Places to Get Craft Beer in Little Rock

Cheers, everybody! It’s American Craft Beer Week!

In the latest edition of our sister publication Little Rock Guest Guide, the team mapped out some of the best places to find craft brews in Little Rock. LRGG—which is on stands now—is the go-to resource for out-of-towners visiting our fair city, but there’s quite a bit of info in there that will tickle the local’s fancy as well. 

And with this week being such a fanciful occasion, we just had to share. 

This is just a sampling, but check out the full list here.

Diamond Bear Brewing Co. & Alehouse
Where: 600 N. Broadway St., North Little Rock 
When: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday; 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday & Saturday; 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday. 
Tours: ($7) 4 p.m. on Fridays; 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturdays & Sundays

Diamond Bear Brewing Co. & Alehouse keeps things simple: hops, yeast, two-row malted barley and Arkansas water. Apparently there’s something to it because DB brews have won top honors internationally, and their wings and brats aren’t too shabby either.


Lost 40 Brewing
Where: 501 Byrd St.
When: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday

New kid on the block Lost Forty exploded onto the scene in late 2014 and people are absolutely wild about it. Favorites include the Lost Forty Pale Ale and Love Honey Bock, not to mention a menu of raved-about snacks.


Vino’s Brewpub
Where: 923 W. Seventh St. 
When: 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; 11 a.m.-midnight Friday & Saturday

Brew, food and entertainment mean Vino’s has it all. Little Rock’s oldest brewpub will cook up around 20 different brews over the course of a year, along with made-to-order stone baked pizzas, calzones, sandwiches and salads. This local staple is not to be missed. Our recommendation: Try the Firehouse Pale Ale.


Blue Canoe Brewing Company
Where: 425 E. Third St.
When: Noon-10 p.m. Saturday; Noon-8 p.m. Sunday

Tucked away in the downtown River Market district, this brewery has become a go-to game day spot for local “paddlers,” or Blue Canoe regulars. Try the unique Whittler, a milk stout with a chocolatey espresso flavor.
