Core Brewing & Distilling Co
., headquartered in Springdale, will open its second Central Arkansas bar at 1214 Main St., in the South Main Historic District, perhaps as soon as mid-December.
Marketing head Jeff Starling
said the new Core (the other Central Arkansas Core is in Argenta) will have a kitchen and may serve “fun, small batch” beers at times, but primarily will be supplied by the brewery in Springdale.
On tap find Leg Hound Lager, Barney’s Imperial Red, Oatmeal Stout and others, as well as seasonals
Pumpkin Pie Ale, Schwartzbier black lager, Coffee Milk Stout and Exit 65 Porter.
Core, voted best
beer by the people at the 2013 Arkansas Times Craft Beer Festival, was founded in 2010 by Jesse Core; a drawing of his late wiener dog, Barney, is featured on his labels. Starling didn’t know how many the new pub, in the space formerly occupied by the
Rosen Music, will seat nor whether hiring has started, but Core is seeking delivery drivers in Little Rock. Core also has pubs in Bentonville, Rogers and Fort Smith.
