Raise your glass to the 2013 Food & Foam Fest

Posted By on Tue, Apr 23, 2013 at 6:17 AM

With the coming of warmer weather to Arkansas, you can expect to see a healthy dose of outdoor Spring and Summer festivals and celebrations…most of which are going to involve food in some way. There’s no better way to get a group of Arkansans together than the promise of good food and drink, and many of the exciting festivities arriving in the coming months will be drawing in folks from all over the state.

This Friday, April 26th, will see the arrival of the annual Food & Foam Fest to Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock. The event is billed as “a craft beer festival offering samples of over 250 different kinds of beer, wine, and cuisine from local restaurateurs.” That should keep anyone busy for at least a few hours. Patrons will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite draft as distributors and brewers compete for the award “People’s Choice Best Brew.” The event will be held from 6-9 p.m. and guests must be 21 or older to attend.

Participating restaurants and brewers include Boscos Restaurant and Brewing Co., Apple Spice Junction, the new Stone’s Throw Brewery, Vino’s Pizza and Brewery, Blue Coast Burrito, The Little Rock Flying Saucer, Kent Walker Cheese, Mexico Chiquito, W.T. Bubba’s, Dugan’s Pub and more.

A variety of tickets are available for purchase. VIP tickets ($65) will include early (5:30 p.m.) admittance to the festival, an official t-shirt and other festival swag, and a special tasting event featuring around a dozen brews including Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, Schlafly 21st Anniversary Single Malt Scotch Ale, and New Belgium La Folie. Regular admission will run you $40 for the food and beer sampling, and there’s even an option for the designated driver, who gets a break at $20 a ticket. Tickets for the event can be purchased online here and will be waiting at will call (tickets are $45 at the gate).

The annual Food & Foam Fest will benefit the Arkansas Arthritis Foundation in helping to raise funds for children afflicted with juvenile arthritis. The foundation helps fund research, promotes health education, and provides government advocacy for this disabling disease, which affects an estimated 2,700 children in Arkansas.

  • The Kraft Mac & Cheese Food Hack

    Recently, we held another food hack competition, taking another childhood classic, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and tried to turn it on its head, creating something entirely new and unique. Again, the results were pretty awesome. The rules were simple: Use a whole box of mac and cheese, both noodles and cheese powder, and turn it into any sinister monstrosity imaginable. We had a vote via the Eat Arkansas Facebook page to crown a winner. Here's what was submitted:
