Behind the Beer.
Since 2010, we have lead Northwest Arkansas’ craft beer efforts, and have loved doing it. Here is
our story, our values, and our mission, and we hope we can bring you on board as we continue
this crazy ride.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN…
Core Brewing & Distilling Company started in September of 2010. The founder, Jesse Core, began production on a 1-barrel RIMS brewhouse with 8 small 27-gallon fermenters. Our first client was Kingfish in Fayetteville. By 2012, we expanded our brewhouse to a 4-vessel, 25-barrel brewhouse with 4 x 25-barrel fermenters and 2 x 25-barrel Brite tanks. Demand grew quickly, and Core expanded again by adding 10 more 40-barrel fermentation vessels and 5 more 40-barrel Brite tanks. Recently, we have added 3 x 120 BBL Fermentors and 1 x 120 Brite.
We are grateful that consumer demand has been high and driving our growth. At Core, we understand that our consumers expect high-quality product and we aim to exceed their expectations.
ABOUT THE WIENER
The wiener’s name is Barney.
Jesse’s mother bought him as a consolation for Jesse after his team lost the state football championship to their cross-town rival. Barney was a special member of the Core Family for over nineteen years, and now he’s immortal!
