CHEERS!: From last year's Arkansas Times Craft Beer Festival. Brian Chilson

Ever tried Ozark Beer Co.’s Onyx Coffee Stout? Or Karbach Brewing Co.’s Blood Orange Radler? Or Rahr & Sons Brewing Co.’s Ugly Pug?

Now’s your chance, and you’ll have your pick of about 150 other craft beer varieties to try, too, at this year’s Arkansas Times Craft Beer Festival. The fun (and the foam) kick off at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at Diamond Bear Brewing (600 N. Broadway in North Little Rock), and proceeds benefit the Argenta Arts District. DJ extraordinaire Mike Poe, who knows how to start a party, will be kickin’ out the jams, and the Riceland Mobile Cafe, Delta Biscuit Co. and The Crepe Coop will have eats onsite for purchase.


Get your tickets soon; prices will increase starting Wednesday.

Because you’ll not likely be able try 150-plus beers and live to tell the tale, here’s a checklist so you can start planning.
