Core Brewing and Distilling, the Northwest Arkansas craft beer titan with pubs in Springdale, Rogers, Fort Smith and Fayetteville, plus a brewery taproom in Springdale, has announced it will be opening a tasting room in North Little Rock's Argenta District, at 411 N. Main Street.

Jeff Genova, pub operations manager for Core, said that the Argenta space will be much like their other tasting rooms in Northwest Arkansas, with all the Core beers on tap and seating in both the main room and on a patio.
"The biggest thing we do with our tasting rooms," he said, "is to help educate people about craft beer, and bring our fantastic beer that we're very proud of to the people of the state."

A feature of the Core experience is that their tasting rooms, while serving popcorn and hotdogs, allow patrons to bring in food from outside. "We like to support the restaurants that support us," Genova said. "The restaurants that have our beer on tap, we usually have their menus so people can get takeout or get food delivered. You're welcome to get any food delivered, or even bring in home-cooked food into our pubs."

Genova said that remodeling work on the space started early this week, but adds that when the space will open depends on the permitting process with the ABC. He said he'd like to see Argenta Core location open before the first of the year.
