Beer, beer, beer, beer and more beer

A quick reminder that tonight's the night for the third annual Arkansas Times Craft Beer Festival in Argenta at 6th and Main streets. If you're a beer drinker, it doesn't get much better. It's like walking through your favorite liquor store and being able to pop open every beer that catches your eye and take a swig — a liquid buffet of nearly every craft brew available in our market.

Plus, many of the breweries you know and love will be bringing special, hard-to-find beers. And — and probably I'm most excited about this — you'll get to sample a lot of new Arkansas breweries that haven't yet started production, or aren't widely available. Outfits like Blue Canoe Brewing, Flyway Brewing, Leap of Faith Brewing, Moody Brews and Ozark Beer Co.

Scott Parton, a new contributor to Eat Arkansas and a must-follow on Twitter for beer lovers (he's @WooPigBrewey), put together a comprehensive preview of the festival for us, and he and Michael Roberts further picked some beers that they say you should be on look out for

We typically hold back a few tickets for the door, but you gotta show up early to get 'em, and they're likely to be in short supply. You'd be much better off grabbing your tickets here and saving $5.

The festival, presented by and benefiting the Argenta Arts District, runs from 6-9 p.m. Cons of Formant will provide music and there'll be food, which is included in the ticket price, from Arkansas Ale House (Diamond Bear Beer), Bravo! Cucina Italiana, Cafe Bossa Nova, Cregeen’s Irish Pub, Crush Wine Bar, The Fold Botanas & Bar, Old Chicago NLR, Butcher & Public, Whole Hog North Little Rock and Edwards Food Giant.

Come hang out with us!
