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

Amer Belge Belgian IPA

It's Belgian. It's American. It's Amer Belge! Translated to "bitter Belgian," this is our solution to making a great beer better! Based on our Bernoulli Pale ale, but aggressively hopped 7 times with American hops, this beer is sure to please. It's malty, its Belgian funky, its hoppy. Everything hangs in a delicate balance to delight your senses. Amer Belge is perhaps our brewmaster's favorite child. Fall Seasonal. OG 1080, IBU 70, ABV 8%

Barton British Standard

Originally created for the 75th anniversary of the Arkansas State Fair in 2014, Barton heralds fall much like ferris wheels & fried foods at the fairgrounds. A classic English Standard Bitter with an Arkansas twist, this session strength beer is brewed using locally grown rice in honor of the autumn harvest.. A balanced flavor between malt & hops with a light body, Barton pairs perfectly with fair food, live music, camping, tailgating, cookouts & family gatherings! Fall Seasonal. O.G. 1037, IBU 29, ABV 3.5%

Big Dam Horn O'Plenty

A big band deserves a big beer. Introducing "Big Dam Horn O’Plenty." Created in honor of our friends, The Big Dam Horns, this beer is all about making a great night better. This horn-o-plenty is an Imperial Oktoberfest style. Pain-stakingly brewed with a seemingly endless supply of barley malt that provides a rich, forceful malt profile; yet a smooth finish lets you forget it's hiding 8.5% ABV inside. Truly a Big Dam Beer for a Big Dam Band. Fall Seasonal. OG 1083, IBU 20, ABV 8.5%

Principia Hopped Apple Cider

No calculus needed to derive this prism of flavors. Principia unites England's cider making and brewing traditions with an Arkansas twist. English hop varieties interplay with local, Dunbar yeast creating this take on Apple cider. Naturally, this hopped cider is recommended for your next philosophical debate. Special Release. OG 1054, IBU 0, ABV 6%

T-Bone Wheat

This 2016 Big Red Ball Homebrew Contest pro-am selection and the Official Beer of Kickball is a refreshing brew perfect to drink outside when the sun is shining. Winning homebrewers John & Heather Herron assisted as their recipe was commercially brewed on the Stone’s Throw system, and we think everyone will be pleased with the results. Unfiltered & straw colored with a fluffy white head, this easy drinker harbors hints of citrus and dough making it perfect for a day of kickball drinking! Special Release. O.G. 1050, IBU 23, ABV 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%

Caddo Kolsch

This classic style from Cologne, Germany is perfect for the craft beer drinker looking for a summer brew! We combine Light color & body with a strength ideal for session drinking. Whether you’re floating the namesake river, taking a dip in DeGray Lake, or just having a pint in our biergarten, a cold Caddo Kolsch is sure to refresh on a hot day! Limited Release. O.G. 1046, ABV 5%

Balarama Peppercorn Saison

A staple of cooking in its native India for at least 4000 years, the flavorful peppercorn was so valued in the ancient world it was called “black gold” and even used as currency! We add this important farming staple of Southern Asia to the classic farmers’ brew of Northern Europe, then ferment it all with locally urban farmed Dunbar Wild yeast. It seemed only suiting to name this ode to agriculture after the plough & pitcher wielding Hindu god of farming & fertility. Limited Release. OG 1064, IBU 27, ABV 7%

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%
