Craft Beer Hot Spots

Don't Miss These Hot Breweries, Brewpubs & Bars

The folks in Rogers know how to enjoy their craft beer and have plenty of places to grab local, regional and national brews. If you’re looking for a pub to enjoy great beer, an excellent patio to order a pint, or a large tap list to choose from, Rogers is undeniably your craft beer hot spot.

Don’t miss the award-winning Ozark Beer Company, located downtown in a historic building. OBC is king of craft beer, not just in Rogers but throughout Arkansas, where it’s sold on tap and in cans. But don’t miss a visit to its tasting room, open seven days a week, with vintage wood picnic tables inside, good music, and a large, long bar. In addition to its five mainstays: Onyx Coffee Stout, Cream Stout, Belgian Style Golden Strong, India Pale Ale and American Pale Ale, you can also order the changing small batch beers and wine. Along with your pint, also enjoy music outdoors in warmer months and Tyler’s Craft BBQ food truck.

New Province Brewing Company is the new kid on the block. The owners believe brewing is a delicate blend of art and science and the process is as important as the pour. New pilot batch beers can be found on tap every week along with its signature beers. In addition to its brews, New Province is known for its fun open space with pool tables, TVs and trivia night.

Strange as it seems, Bentonville Brewing Company is indeed located in Rogers. However, it’s a temporary location. But for now, enjoy beers in the taproom of this production craft micro-brewery that seeks to transform typical light-lager beer drinkers and non-beer drinkers into craft beer enthusiasts.

JGBG and Core Brewing and Distillery produce their own craft beers at locations in Fayetteville and Springdale, respectively. Both have locations in Rogers, where you can sip their suds: JJ’s Grill and Core Public House.

Foster’s Pint and Plate is an industrial-style gastropub featuring classic pub grub, its own microbrews and live music. It has 82 beers on tap, showcasing local, regional, and national brews as well as small batches of house brews.

Brick Street Brews is a cool little hang out downtown that serves Arkansas beer only on its 16 taps. At this small pub you’re likely to sit by a girl and her dog or a man in a suit and tie just off work. Enjoy live music here, free popcorn, and the patio out back during the summer.

You’ll find 14 craft beers on tap at Crossroads Tavern, located downtown across from the Frisco Stage. Most of the taps are Arkansas brews, but it also carries Yeungling and Sweetwater. Some of the taps change weekly so customers have new selections to discover. Crossroads considers itself a prohibition-era type bar, also serving craft cocktails, mostly bourbon and gin based. Its building has a history along those lines, and decor includes a row of prohibition liquor bottles displayed behind the bar that were found under flooring during a remodel.

At Growler USA, the beer taps are complemented by a full-service kitchen, which is a good thing since there are 104 taps on the wall. Growlers serves local and regional craft beers, draught wines and hard ciders, as well as non-alcoholic, handcrafted root beer.

Other small downtown venues that carry choice craft brew include Parkside Public for a great happy hour, The Rail and Club Frisco, for happy hour through late night.
