The Fayetteville Ale Trail added four member breweries to the list of craft beer establishments that make up the self-guided trail across Northwest Arkansas.
Crisis Brewing Co. and JBGB, both in Fayetteville, Ivory Bill Brewing Co. in Siloam Springs and Hawk Moth Brewery & Beer Parlor in Rogers increase the number of stops on the Fayetteville Ale Trail to 15, including the one cidery on the trail — Black Apple Crossing in Springdale.
Experience Fayetteville launched the Fayetteville Ale Trail in 2013 as Arkansas’ Original Craft Beer Tour. With the addition of the newest members, Experience Fayetteville has unveiled a new website for the Ale Trail that includes a new logo and an expanded gallery of photos from each brewery and the cidery.
“We are excited about the Ale Trail’s new design and the updated website” said executive director Molly Rawn. “The site is more visually appealing and easy to navigate, and it now includes beautiful photos from each of the Ale Trail locations. We think visitors and locals alike will love the new look — almost as much as they love the beer.”
The Fayetteville Ale Trail includes locations in Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville and Siloam Springs. There is no cost to experience the Ale Trail and many of the breweries offer a behind-the-scenes tour of how craft beer is made.
“The new breweries we’ve added are a great addition to the Ale Trail and we are proud to have them,” Rawn said. “We hope everyone will enjoy the expanded offerings.”
Participants visit each location at their own pace and have the option of completing an Ale Trail passport that is stamped by each brewery. Completed passports may be mailed or turned in to Experience Fayetteville at 21 S. Block Ave. for a souvenir. Passports are available at Experience Fayetteville or at participating breweries.
