Calling the historic MacArthur Park District home, Stone’s Throw is a pioneer in Little Rock’s brewing scene. The brewery opened their doors in late 2012, and operates as a collaboration between four home brewers who have separate day-jobs. Their taps constantly rotate with fresh, funky brews you are not likely to see anywhere else.
The indoor space is small, and reminiscent of a minimalist European tavern, typically full of downtown dwellers. Head outside the tap room, however, and you’re likely to find a food truck and a cozy seat on the biergarten. Check out the following beer staples you’re likely to find on tap:
The Amadeus Vienna Lager is an excellent choice, and comes with an ‘elegant complexity’ finishing with just enough hops to balance the overall taste.
If you’d like a darker drink, try the Shamus Stout, a take on the classic oatmeal stout. Silky, smooth, and rounded out with just the right amount of malt and coffee notes shining through.
The Petit Jean Pear Cider is a great refreshing option without the overwhelming sweetness you find in most national brands.
Finally, the Common Sense is a great choice that is still on the lighter side. The California Common style brew is 5% ABV with just the right blend of hops to produce a beer for any occasion.
Stone’s Throw offers growler sales, and you can also catch their brews at local restaurants and liquor stores. Check here for an updated list. Head to 402 East Ninth Street to visit the tap room.Where to Find Stone’s Throw
