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

Black Hops Cascadian Dark Ale

Black Hops is our interpretation of a newer beer style called Cascadian Dark Ale that originated in the Northwestern United States. It is an American IPA loaded with hop varieties from that region of the country; however, this is not your ordinary AIPA with the grain bill resembling that of an English Porter. The flavor is a balanced citrus-like hop bitterness with noticeable roasted malt and chocolate notes. A nice dry finish with a very present present hoppy aroma. Winter Seasonal. OG 1071, IBU 75, ABV 7.5%

Ripple Effect Rye

Roggenbier is similar to a dunkelweizen but is brewed with rye malt instead of wheat. Ripple effect is no different. It is brewed with rye as more than half the grain bill and then fermented with a classic hefeweizen yeast. This produces the fruity light esters associated with a classic hefeweiss, but with an added spiciness from the rye, almost reminiscent of rye bread. Light in body and alcohol, Ripple Effect is a true session beer that is refreshing round after round. Winter Seasonal. OG 1042, IBU 16 ABV 4%

Dos Cabras Doppelbock

Originally brewed by monks in Munich, this classic style sustained the fathers during their Lenten fasts. Our version is big & malty, carrying on the tradition of “liquid bread.” Despite its high ABV, this full flavored beer is remarkably easy to drink. Have a glass to sustain you through the winter months! Available January-March. O.G. 1088, IBU 23, ABV 8%

Petit Jean Pear

When our building was first built, Arkansas was the leading fruit producer in the nation; Petit Jean Mountain was home to numerous apple & pear orchards. We salute those fruity pioneers with our first cider & gluten free offering. The distinct flavor of pears stands out in this refreshing brew. Enjoy after a hike to Cedar Falls! Limited Release. ABV 4.5%

Trappist Single

The new brother at the monastery, Singles are a relatively recent style that joined the Trappist line up of Dubbels, Tripels, and Quads as a response to the modern craft beer palate. This Trappist Single resembles our Magnum Trip Belgian Tripel in appearance but exhibits a more hop forward flavor and half the alcohol. The characteristic yeast provides floral esters while the Saaz hops add a little spice. With a pale color and lighter body, this is a perfect patio beer for all you Belgo-philes! Limited Release. OG 1051, IBU 32, ABV 5%

Dark Helmet Mylo Coffee Schwarzbier

This winter everyone is highly participating an out of this world premiere: Dark Helmet returns! Our classic “The Schwarz” German schwarzbier (or black lager) is enhanced with Colombia Timana Hiula beans roasted by our friends at Mylo Coffee Co. The combination is a lighter bodied & smoother drinking counter to many of the black coffee beers on tap this time of year. So delicious and easy to drink, you’ll vacuum this one up at at ludicrous speed! May the Schwartz! be with you. Limited Release. OG 1050 IBU 24 ABV 5%

Lil Peaty's Wee Heavy

Like it’s distilled cousins, the peat bogs of Scotland fuel the unique smokey flavor of this rich malty brew. Premium malts create aromas and flavors that swirl rich caramel, woodsy & peaty notes with molasses hints, and toffee. Deep-copper in color, this medium to full body beer finishes with a peaty, caramel mix. The deceptively high alcohol warms you up inside but will sneak up if you’re not careful! Limited Release. OG 1085, IBU 21, ABV 8.5%

Bourbon Barrel Aged Amarillo Warrior

[Amarillo Warrior from spring 2016 aged in a Rock Town bourbon barrel then cellared] 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! Special Release. O.G. 1085, IBU 90, ABV 9%

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 Weizenbock

In the early 1900s, Germany was known for two things: strong beer, and even stronger Empirical rule. Dopplebock was all the rage, so a top-fermenting wheat bock was created to compete against the popular lager. Basically a dunkelweizen brewed to dopplebock strength; weizenbock is a full-bodied wheat ale that is malty and fruity, with a powerful aroma of dark fruits & bready malts. Available Year Round. OG 1070, IBU 20, ABV 7%

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%

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%
