I haven't checked the Arkansas brewery totals on Untappd for a bit so I thought hey what the heck. Let's see what's going on with our awesome brewery scene in the natural state.
To refresh you, these are just the total check-ins for the brewery, followed by their "monthly" check-ins. So let's get to it!
New adds this month: Bubba Brews (Bonnerdale), Brick Oven (Harrison), Black Apple Crossing (cidery in Springdale), Columbus House and Leap of Faith. No Rebel Kettle yet as I'm waiting on them to open the doors (hopefully this Fall!). You say "well Leap of Faith hasn't opened their doors!" and I say yes, but they're selling at Stone's Throw Brewing taproom often.

And there you go! Diamond Bear still leads the total but Core, Ozark and Lost Forty are the top 3 monthly totals again.
* I personally got to add to Bentonville Brewing, Black Apple Crossing, Fossil Cover and Bike Rack Brewing with a quick visit to the northwest corner last weekend. Fun places, solid liquids. Trying to get down to Bubba Brews any time now.
* It's still sort of amazing to me that Lost Forty is only in Pulaski county with those totals.
* If you wonder where you can get Brick Oven's brews, Old Chicago in NLR has their Dirty Sally blonde on tap.
Don't like the results? My tip to you my friend is sign-up for Untappd, like all of the craft beer drinkers in America pretty much are, and cast your votes with some $$. I always enjoy checking in an Arkansas beer, makes me sort of proud.
