FEBRUARY, 2019- Our brewery is not only the beating heart of our organization, but home. When we started our journey in the summer of 2010, the mission was simple: to brew premium craft beer that Arkansans could truly Take Pride in, a mission that will never change. But while we’ve been incredibly blessed to be able to flex our wings, we realized a simple truth. We are brewers and beer lovers at heart, and it’s time to come home!

NOVEMBER 2018 – Every Friday and Saturday from Black Friday to Christmas, Core is pairing up with local charities to get your gifts wrapped for the holiday season. The process is simple: you bring your gifts to any of our public houses during Wrap-a-thon hours, and the charity of the week will wrap your presents while you grab a few beers. All proceeds will go that week’s charity, so you’ll be apart of the giving process as well! For more information, ask your local Core bartender, or visit our pubs online.


NOVEMBER 2018 – With the emergence of new colors outside, Core Brewing Company presents its newest line of production beers. These six brews are as delicious as they are creatively and uniquely made. With five different beer styles, we made sure to brew something that everyone can enjoy.

The long-awaited Last Stage at Hawksbill, Ring of Fire, and Australian Summer Beach Rat are finally here and can be found at any local destination that sells great craft beer.

With the success of our first beer featured in Brewer’s Choice Series, Cranberry Rye, we decided to up our game with the delicious Doppelbock, Terminator. Being named after the famous 1984 blockbuster “Terminator,” the name also resembles several German Doppelbock beers, which characteristically end in “ator.” Terminator follows in some big footsteps, as it’s the successor of one of our earlier releases, I’ll Be Bock, which had so much success that it has become one of our two newest year-round brews.

Also, to join the list of new beers, as well as our year-round selection, is Heisenberg, named after the AMC TV series Breaking Bad’s Walter White. Heisenberg is a German Style Hefeweizen with a hint of banana and vanilla. This golden wheat brew will not disappoint, so be sure to grab a 6 pack before everyone else does.


OCTOBER 2018 – Ladies and gentlemen, the Battle of the Brewers Round 2 results are in, and the official imperial champion is Alton’s The Dude Abides! It is no doubt that this white Russian stout turned heads with its big-time taste. As the winner of the Battle of the Brewers competition was promised, The Dude Abides will become a limited release beer on shelves and in the pubs soon. Stay tuned for release dates!


OCTOBER 2018 – There’s no doubt that Fall is now officially here. Whether you’re getting cozy by a bonfire, hiking through the wilderness, or need something for adult Trick-or-Treating, we’ve got the beer for you! With this new seasonal brew, we took a complex and nutty Southern Brown Ale and gave it a kick of natural hazelnut. The caramel notes and creamy mouthfeel really make this beer a treat for any fall occasion! Make sure to look out for it at your local craft beer selling stores!

Check out our Hazelnut Brown…

SEPTEMBER 2018 – Yep, its that time again! Northwest Arkansas’s biggest beer competition is back, and you know what that means… Get in a pub and try some new beers! The competition starts on September 29th, and will last for two weeks, so you don’t have long to support your favorite brewer.

The beer of this round is an imperial stout, so if you like dark beer, this round is for you. Last round, head brewer Roddy took home the crown with the best made Double IPA. Can he complete the back to back titles with his And Then Came Then imperial stout? This brew was made from 180 lbs of toasted coconut and 80 lbs of roasted walnuts from NWA’s very own Rick’s Bakery. Weird name, great beer.

His competitors are looking for their first title, putting forth beers that will not make Roddy’s repeat an easy task. Director of Operations Ron Schmidt presents Dark Mater, a Mexican chocolate stout brewed with Ancho, Guajiou, and Habanero peppers. Alton presents The Dude Abides, a white Russian imperial stout based off of the movie “The Big Lebowski,” brewed with chocolate malts, roasted barley, and Kahlua. Lastly, founder Jesse Core brewed Prison Break Larry, named after his English Bulldog, which features KYYA Tanzanian Chocolate and Bolder Coffee Brazilian Blend.

Needless to say, you’re not going to want to miss this round of Battle of the Brewers. Try and vote on all four beers at any of our public house locations.


FALL 2018 – When the Razorbacks step in between the lines on Saturdays, you better believe Saturdays are for supporting the boys. And what better way to do that than getting in a Core pub and snagging an Arkansas Red for $2? For other specials and drink deals, sign up for our newsletter or check out our pubs on Facebook.


FALL 2018 – Core is on a mission to take our beers to the next level. Beginning in October, we plan to begin releasing a steady flow of new and improved beers, as well as continuing to produce the everyday staples that you love.

Our upcoming release of Cranberry Rye is set to hit shelves in early October. Cranberry Rye is sworn to avenge the craze of the pumpkin spice amongst beer drinkers., being a bold IPA, this brew will be perfect for cool weather. It’s brewed with cranberries and sweet orange peel, which is very similar to the proper way to make traditional Thanksgiving cranberry sauce. Cranberry Rye will be sold for a limited time, so grab a 4-pack before they run out!

Other beers planned to be released include a few classics with new and improved recipes. In round 1 of Battle of the Brewers, Ron’s Green Hell proved to be extremely successful, so we figured it was about time to bring back what the people want. Coming soon is the newest version of Ron’s double IPA, renamed Ring of Fire. The West Coast Double IPA will feature six premium North American hops, being an absolute steal for you hop lovers.

Our new Beach Rat series is coming soon to shelves near you. These beers include fruity New England Style pale ales featuring Beach Rat hops combined with several other premium and rare hops, including Australian Summer, Galaxy, Vic Secret, and Motueka hops. These hazy, golden-brown brews are smooth and unfiltered and have tropical bursts of flavor.

Be sure to check out these new beers in the upcoming months!
