The growing Arkansas craft beer scene is about to get a little bigger: Stone's Throw Brewing, the new "nanobrewery" on the corner of 9th and Rock has announced that they will officially open on August 1, with regular business hours of 4 p.m.-9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
I first met the guys behind Stone's Throw while working up a piece for the Times last April, and I found Ian Beard, Brad Mclaurin, and Shawn Tobin hard at work transforming a run-down building into a friendly space for brewing and drinking (fourth member Theron Cash is a pilot, and was absent that day). Beard and his compatriots know beer, they know history, and most importantly, they have a good rapport within the local homebrewing scene that is sure to give them a good base of support while starting out.
With local favorite Vino's Brew Pub making some of the best beer they've ever done, Diamond Bear announcing bigger digs across the river, Rock Town Distillery bringing us the hard stuff, and now Stone's Throw creating a space downtown (not to mention the excellent line-up of Northwest Arkansas and Hot Springs brewers), there's never been a better time to do what we always promote: drink local.
The best ribs in Hot Springs!
