Apple Blossom Brewery's Bittersweet Update For Fayetteville

NWA Daily

After nearly a decade of serving Fayetteville, Apple Blossom Brewing Co. will close for good on Apr 22, but the brewing must go on! Flyway Brewing out of North Little Rock will soon take over the space.

  • Fond memories: Apple Blossom opened in 2013 and won over the area with delicious eats like the ABBC Burger and Fayettedaze Beer Cheese-loaded fries. The restaurant closed during the 2020 pandemic and opened under new ownership in 2021.
  • Migration: Flyway Brewing began in North Little Rock in 2015 and has grown popular even in various NWA restaurants and bars. We're excited about what they will add to the local NWA brewing community as they migrate north.

Swing by Apple Blossom this week to raise a glass to good times, take down one last plate of loaded fries, and get ready to welcome Flyway Brewing HERE.
