Stone's Throw Brewing hoping to open by late July

Stone’s Throw Brewing, the microbrewery gearing up to open at 402 E. Ninth St. that we told you about back in April, expects to receive its beer permit today, co-owner Ian Beard said. The end of July is the current target for opening the brewery and taproom, which will have a bar and tables and chairs that’ll accommodate about 25.

Beard and his three partners — Theron Cash, Brad McLaurin and Shawn Tobin — plan to brew their first batch over the Fourth of July holiday. After that, Beard said it would then take a matter of weeks to sufficiently test equipment and build up enough inventory to supply customers. A custom bar has taken longer to build than promised, and that could delay opening past July.

A Kickstarter campaign raised the brewery $23,215 (the initial goal was $10,000). Beard said it represents a “significant portion” of the investment in the business. He and his partners invested equal amounts before the fundraising.

Each partner has a full time job, so the brewery will only be open on nights and weekends. There’ll be eight taps. At least initially, Stone’s Throw will only produce four varieties. The others will be filled by breweries from Arkansas — Core, Diamond Bear, Fossil Cove and Saddlebock.

Once Stone’s Throw gets its production fully underway, the plan is to distribute around Central Arkansas. Flying Saucer and other restaurants have already expressed interest.
