This Saturday, around 400 beers will be available to try out at the annual Great Arkansas Beer Festival at the Statehouse Convention Center. The event, which celebrates craft beers from state and national breweries and the brewers, too, starts at 5:30 p.m. for those who've paid $30 (in advance; $40 day of event), 4:30 p.m. if you've got a VIP ticket ($50).

You could sip an ounce of each beer for less than a dime, but it's not advised to slurp up that much brew here. Organizers say come hydrated and well fed, drink moderately and don't feel bad about dumping the samples you don't like. Most importantly, a portion of ticket sales goes to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas. Tickets can be bought here.

  • Townsend Wolfe, 1935-2017

    Max has posted on the Arkansas Blog the news of Townsend Wolfe's death. The photo Max chose is a great one, but I also wanted to put up this one of Wolfe with his trademark brown cigarette. A More cigarette? A Tiparillo? I don't remember, but I do remember that Wolfe was seldom seen without one. The last time I interviewed him, after the ill-fated "World of the Pharaohs" exhibit, he had quit smoking, but out of long habit patted his shirt pocket, where he'd always kept his cigarettes, from time to time thinking he'd find a pack there before remembering he'd given them up.
