Welcome To Stone's Throw Brewing

Blood, Sweat & Beers

Stone's Throw Brewing is the creation of four guys who met in the local home brew club, the Central Arkansas Fermenters (www.centralarkansasfermenters.com). Theron, Brad, Shawn, and Ian have turned a dusty building in Little Rock's MacArthur Park Historic District into a successful neighborhood nano-brewery with a lot of patience from our loved ones and even more elbow grease. 

Our tap room comes complete with a quaint historic storefront just a stone's throw away (see what we did there) from a vibrant downtown neighborhood, the great green space of MacArthur Park, the Arkansas Arts Center, the bustling River Market entertainment district, the Bowen School of Law, and dozens of cultural attractions. We are open Tuesday-Thursday 4:00-9:00 PM, Friday 4:00-10:00pm, Saturday 12:00-10:00 PM & Sunday 11:00 AM-9:00 PM. Parking information can be found here. Visit this great neighborhood watering hole and let us serve you a glass of our fresh made brew!

About Us

We’re taproom trailblazers and pitcher pioneers who believe in beer worth drinking. We’ve turned a dusty old building in Little Rock’s MacArthur Park Historic District into Arkansas’ newest brewery. This is more than beer. This is craft at its finest.

Who We Are

Christmas and birthday presents, high school hobbies, and homerun first batches have led us to this point.  Every homebrewer dreams of opening up their own place while enjoying that perfect homemade pint.  We're just living the dream.  We've all won ribbons with our recipes at local and regional competitions; we've all floated kegs of our brews at festivals and tastings.  By going pro, Brad, Ian, Shawn, and Theron are taking their beer snobbery, geekdom, and nerdiness to the next level, and you're the beneficiary!

Stone's Throw isn’t just about geography, it’s about a shared experience and passion between brewers, their community and a beer that will inevitably unite them all.  Craft beer is a movement and must remain fluid. Stone's Throw Brewing is proud to stand on the frontlines of the movement, and to join the swelling ranks of Arkansas brewers.

our beers

Listed below are our current beers on tap. This list is constantly changing so make sure to check back.

Seasonal & Limited Releases

Two Timin' American IPA

A classic American IPA made with classic American ingredients! This India Pale Ale is single hopped with citrusy Centennials that provide a clean flavor without overbearing bitterness. A simple grain bill of mostly American 2-row barley provides enough malt flavor to balance this beer out nicely. One of our original recipes--and our first IPA--the refreshing, fruity flavor of Two-Timing is a perfect addition to all your summertime plans. Enjoy! Summer Seasonal. O.G. 1072, IBU 56, ABV 7%

Ich Bin Ein Berliner Weisse

Almost every city in Germany has a unique beer that is only brewed locally and often dates back centuries. The wheat beer that Berlin boasts is light, tart & very hard to find in the U.S. Thankfully your local nano-brewery has come to the rescue so you can experience this truly unique style! A classic session beer, this low-gravity offering is perfect for knocking a few back or refreshing yourself after a hike or bike ride. Look out for opportunities to try this beer served traditionally with flavored syrups so you can be a Berliner, too! Summer Seasonal. O.G. 1034, IBU 4, ABV 3.5%

Papa Geyer's Imperial Pilsner

Our building was at the center of a German neighborhood that grew up around the Little Rock Arsenal in the 1800's. Along with Lutheran & Catholic Churches, the main gathering place was Papa Geyer's Beer Hall & Garden at Rock & 10th streets where neighbors met over a beer and held community meetings. Our high gravity interpretation of the classic pilsner represents a contemporary take on the style that swept the world during Papa Geyer’s time, with a straw colored & crystal clear appearance, a malty backbone, and a delicious balance from Old World hops. The perfect beer for enjoying in our modern beer hall and garden! Summer Seasonal. OG 1086, IBU 40, ABV 9%

Amarillo Warrior Imperial IPA

This hop hero is our annual Imperial IPA and one of the strongest beers we make! Additions of Amarillo, Warrior & Simcoe hops every 3 minutes for an hour and a half demand tribute from your taste buds. But the expansive hop flavor is checked by a strong malt & alcohol presence that delivers a delicious balance of power to your glass. Make sure to pair with a culinary combatant that will be equal to the task of battling Amarillo Warrior with flavor! Summer Seasonal. O.G. 1085, IBU 90, ABV 9%

Julibock Helles Bock

Central Arkansas Fermenters--the local homebrew club where Stone’s Throw founders Brad, Ian, Shawn & Theron met--is sponsoring a series of pro-am contests in 2016. Homebrewers submit their best batch of a specific style, and the winner gets their recipe made by a local brewery! Stone’s Throw chose Helles Bock, a very drinkable strong & malty German lager, as our style. Winning brewer Mark Sniff provided an entry perfect for summer sipping. Mark works at fermentables, the closest thing to brewing school in Central Arkansas. When he’s not home brewing, he spends his free time practicing Jiu-Jitsu, and spending time with his wife Jessica and daughter Mina. We hope you enjoy this rich and malty southern german lager, y'all! Special Release. OG 1070, IBU 30, ABV 7%

Queen Ruby Apple Cider

With the Apple Blossom as our state flower, Arkansas has long grown beautiful apples for the eating, baking & cider making. This addition to our tap wall honors the first Apple Blossom Queen, Ruby Robinson, crowned in 1923. A crisp, clear & very dry cider, this offering should satisfy the cider fanatic while making the style more accessible to drinkers who like something a little less sweet. Celebrate Queen Ruby & Arkansas's apple heritage with a pint today. Limited Release. ABV 4.5%

2016 Anniversary Sout

On July 4, 2013, Brad, Ian, Shawn & Theron took advantage of all having the same day off to brew our first batch of beer: Shamus Stout. In a happy accident, the new equipment worked better than expected and the beer came out a lot stronger than intended! Anniversary Stout is a recreation of this first batch: dark, roasty and high alcohol. It might seem counter-intuitive to have an imperial oatmeal stout come out in the middle of summer, but making a great beer means you have to sometimes blow away expectations! Special Release. O.G. 1080, IBU 33, ABV 8.5%

George Bros. Historic Arkansas Ale

Little Rock’s first brewers were German-born Alexander and Henry George who operated a biergarten in the mid-1800s on Rock Street. For the museum’s 75th anniversary, Ian Beard, Theron Cash and Leah Lambert of Stone’s Throw Brewing drew on their own research and that of our Arkansas-made team to come up with a tribute beer similar to a 19th century George Bros. brew. The George brothers came from a warm region of Germany which suggests that their beer would have been similar to Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Additional research revealed which brewing ingredients would have been available to the George brothers. With the addition of wild Arkansas yeast harvested by Grant Chandler (Lost Forty Brewing) from plums in Dunbar Community Garden, this 75th anniversary ale is an Arkansas-made ale of historic proportions! Special Release. OG 1061, IBU 25, ABV 6.5% 

Available Year Round

Shamus Stout 

Shamus is our take on a classic oatmeal stout. Dark color and a creamy head meet the eye. Initial taste greets your mouth with a full body and silky smoothness until the roast malts shine through. Coffee kiln malt adds a hint of coffee flavor which increases drinkability. Shamus is an easy drinking stout for the seasoned aficionado and dark-beer newbie alike. Born on the 4th of July, 2013, this was the first beer ever made at the brewery! Available Year-Round; O.G. 1062, IBU 37, ABV 6%

Amadeus Vienna Lager

Born in Salzburg, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart spent most of his professional career in Vienna. Similarly, the original amber lager was born in Austria but is most famous for its life in Mexico via immigrants in the 1800s. A healthy dose of Vienna malt gives Amadeus a soft, elegant complexity, and Noble hops provide just enough bitterness for balance. Amadeus is refreshingly perfect for a float down the Danube or a climb up Colima alike. Available Year-Round. O.G. 1051, IBU 24, ABV 5%

Common Sense

Common Sense is our particular spin on the California Common, better known as a "steam" beer - an American west coast original style. Before the advent of refrigeration, steam beers were fermented with a lager yeast, but at temperatures more suited for ales, to take advantage of the mild weather found in the San Francisco bay area. Instead of the typical hop profile, we selected Nelson Sauvin to add in a unique hop flavor to compliment this medium-bodied and slightly malty/fruity beer. Available Year Round. O.G. 1054, IBU 40, ABV 5%

Heritage IPA

One style has become the overwhelming symbol of the American craft beer movement: India Pale Ale. Thousands for interpretations have been created of this classic English beer, with adjustments to strength, color, grain varieties, yeast strains making each brew a little different. But the one thing they do have in common is lots of hops! Heritage IPA is brewed in the more hop-forward West Coast tradition. The robust hop bill provides a full hop flavor & aroma with plenty of citrus & fruit notes. Available Year Round. OG 1070, IBU 64, ABV 7.5%

Heritage Scottish Ale

Rich malt flavors characterize this take on traditional ales from Scotland. A wee stronger than its Light, Heavy & Export cousins from across the pond, the higher alcohol content helps dry out the sweetness of the malt. Whether you’ve traveled near or far, enjoy this delicious nod to Scottish heritage with a great meal and new friends. Available Year Round. O.G. 1069, IBU 23, ABV 6.5%

Heritage Belgian Blonde

Light & clear, this refreshing brew is a trickster. This rich & creamy brew hides its 6.5% ABV well. All the flavor you come to expect from our Belgian-style beers, but as drinkable as they come. The perfect drink for a warm day in Brussels or anywhere else in the world! Available Year-Round. O.G. 1066, IBU 22, ABV 6.5%

Deadwood Amber Ale

The perfect pint to compliment your bowling game! A beautiful amber color reflects the malty profile of this complex but easy drinking beer. A distinctly citrusy hop bite balances out this beer. The next time you’re at the Professor Bowl, knock down a Deadwood. It’s a strike every time! Available year round. O.G. 1054, IBU 36, ABV 5.5%

Sausagefest Hefeweizen

The Bavarian classic wheat is recreated here with all the elements you love: unfiltered beauty, refreshing flavor, and the distinct hint of banana & cloves. A better companion for Central European cuisine is hard to find; pair it with a schnitzel or the Nuremberger at The Pantry and see what we mean! Available year round. O.G. 1054, IBU 19, ABV 5%
