The alcohol will really flow this weekend. In addition to the Great Arkansas Beer Festival and Queers & Beers, Rock Town Distillery gets in the spirit Saturday by celebrating its eighth anniversary with a grand opening of its new building in SoMa, at 1201 Main St.

There will be free tours of the distillery from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and craft beers and cocktails in the Rock Town’s new tasting room. Food trucks in the parking lot will help celebrants soak up the whiskey.

Starting at 6:30 p.m., founder and head distiller Phil Brandon will hold Rock Town’s “8th Anniversary Barrelhouse Masterclass,” a seated tasting of Rock Town’s 8th Anniversary Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey (which goes on sale at 11 a.m. in the tasting room, $49.99 a bottle), Arkansas Bourbon Whiskey, Arkansas Four Grain Sour Mash Whiskey and its Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey. Tickets are $60 and space is “extremely limited.”

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
