Local beer guru Scott Parton tipped us off on Twitter today to some sad news: Memphis-based Boscos Brewing Company has closed its Little Rock location.

From the e-mail Parton sent us:

Dear Loyal Boscos Customer:

Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co. has closed its location in Little Rock, Arkansas. We appreciate your years of support and invite you to visit us whenever you’re in Memphis, TN.

If you are a 2014 Mug Club Member, you will be able to pick up your Mug on Monday, September 29th from 10am until 5pm. We apologize for the inconvenience and sincerely appreciate your loyalty.

Thank you from the Boscos Family 

No word yet why the place closed; I’ve reached out to Boscos to see if they have some more details. I figure that with the rise of craft brewing in Arkansas, the field is getting rather crowded — and crowded with some pretty stellar brews. I’ve enjoyed beer at Boscos, but never thought their food was good enough to match the beer they were pouring.
