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 been turning a dusty building in Little Rock's MacArthur Park Historic District into Arkansas's newest nano-brewery with a lot of patience from our loved ones and even more elbow grease. So far, we've all managed to keep our day jobs.

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 bustling River Market entertainment district, the law school, and dozens of cultural attractions. We are open Thursday & Friday 4:00-9:00 PM, Saturday 12:00-9:00 PM & Sunday 12:00-8:00 PM. Visit this great neighborhood watering hole and let us serve you a glass of our fresh made beer!

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 now on tap

Anniversary
Stout

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 we thought and the beer came out a lot stronger than we expected! Anniversary Stout is a recreation of this first batch: dark, roasty and high alcohol. As a special treat, we will only be offering it on nitro. Try Anniversary by itself or in a fusion with our other great brews.


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.

Rene Descartes
Dunkelweizen

You've enjoyed the Ripple Effect, so let's keep it in the family. Exit rye, enter wheat to make up the majority of the grain. A generous portion of Munich add the malty sweetness, and specialty grains add complexity. Hefe yeast rounds out the classic wheat flavor, which tends to be quite refreshing. Light in body but full in flavor, Rene Descartes is sure to please the masses, even if you don't like geometry.

                                                         


Pelagia's                         Patersbier 

The term "patersbier" does not designate a style as such; it is usually a weaker version of one of the regular beers, and may only be offered to the Brothers on festive occasions. Made only from pilsner malt, hops, and yeast, the complexity that results from these simple ingredients is staggering: perfumey floral hops, ripe pear fruit, sour apple, spicy cloves, candied citrus and a slight biscuit character on the drying finish ... a monk's session beer.

Bernoulli's               Belgian Pale Ale
Belgian Pale Ales aren't your typical Belgian ales. This is considered an "everyday" beer, and is more focused on drinkability, rather than higher alcohol and spiciness like their cousins. A generous amount of Munich and other specialty malts provide a rich, complex backbone for this easy-drinking session beer. A relatively clean Belgian Ale yeast imparts a mild Belgian flavor with a focus on being drinkable. Bernoulli is a perfect fit for every occasion.                                                                                                         



Weimar Republic
Weizenbock

In the early 1900s, Germany was known for two things: strong beer, and even stronger Empirical rule. Just before the creation of the Weimar Republic (in present-day Germany), dopplebock was all the rage. A top-fermenting wheat bock was created to compete. 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.

Brownstone
Brown Ale

Like its namesake residences that adorn the older parts of many cities, our Brownstone Brown Ale is solid, sturdy and well proportioned. As a Northern English Brown Ale, there is a majority of English Pale Malt in the grain bill with smaller portions of Roast Malt, Light Caramel Malt and Chocolate Malt. A single addition of English hops gives balance to the sweet grain bill. Enjoy our interpretation of this classic and easy drinking English Pub Ale with a friend or two.                                      

                                                

Black Hops       Cascadian Dark Ale

“BLACK HOPS” is our interpretation of a new beer style called Cascadian Dark Ale that originated in the Northwest United States. It is an American IPA loaded with hop varieties from that region of the country. However, this is not your ordinary AIPA. The grain bill resembles that of a British Porter. The flavor is balanced citrus like hop bitterness with noticeable roasted malt and chocolate notes. A nice dry finish with the aroma of the Northwest dry hopping very present.

Past & future beers

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 

                                                                                                                 

Farmer's Table                 Saison

Saisons were originally brewed for farm workers as a refreshing and fortifying beer. The first thing you will notice is a brilliant white head sitting atop a golden to light orange colored beer. There is just enough hop bitterness to balance the Pilsner, Victory and Wheat malts. Notes of pepper & Orange are present as you drink. The finish is refreshing and dry, made so by the combination of the additions of Belgian candy sugar and orange peel during the boil and the Belgian yeast.

Waterloo
Wit

Witbier is a 400-year-old Belgian style wheat ale. The grist is simple: typically 50% raw wheat and 50% pilsner malt give it a very pale straw color; almost white in appearance. Some spices, such as coriander and curacao add to the complexity. The Belgian yeast layer in a peppery spice flavor that blends well with the pleasant sweetness of this wheat based ale. Waterloo is a refreshing Belgian ale, perfect for celebrating a French defeat.                                                  


Common Sense         Steam Beer

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.

SGP                           ESB
At Stone’s Throw, the beer we’re missing is SGP that’s what I’m stressin’. ESB or not far from it; Got a thirst? Stone’s Throw can numb it. SGP pours light amber witha thin, white head. Rich, malty English malt provides a firm backbone for the clean bitterness and fragrant hop profile from the finest British hops. Focused on drinkability, SGP is a well-balanced ale. You can’t get enuff of this funky stuff.                                                                  

                                                                                                  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.

Petit Jean                 Pear Cider
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! 
                            


Ripple Effect                   Rye

Roggenbier is essentially a dunkleweiss brewed with rye malt instead of wheat. Ripple effect is no different. It is brewed with more than half the grain bill being rye and then fermented with a classic hefeweissen 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 bodied and medium in alcohol, Ripple Effect is a true session beer that is refreshing year- round.
