Tree House Kids Again

NWA Daily

Black Apple opened a new taproom in downtown Bentonville not too long ago called Tree House, and it’s definitely worth checking out. 

  • The place to be: Tree House is kid and dog friendly, offering beverages for both, and is an actual old house full of fun decor you’ll just have to see. There’s a yard in the back with picnic tables, lights, yard games and so much more. 
  • Event: The taproom hosts events pretty regularly, and this Saturday is a fun one. They’ve named it “Anything But A Cup,” inviting people to be creative and bring anything that is not a cup to hold their drinks for the evening. There will be free burgers and hotdogs as well.
