Meet New Province Brewing Co's New Co-Owner

Arkansas Times

New Province Brewing Co. in Rogers, maker of favorite local flavors like the Space Suit Session Ale and the Philosopher King IPA, has a new co-owner who’s helping them brew up more than just delicious beers. 

  • Back in the beer game: John Lee, the former head brewer at Rebel Kettle, is getting back in the beer business and will serve as operations manager and brew alongside New Province’s head brewer, Kort Castleberry
  • All business…kinda: While his primary role will be seeking ways to grow the business through distribution, Lee is still a brewer at heart, and he’s already got a brew on the floor called the West Hudson, a hazy IPA brewed with Citra and T-90 hops.

Walmart and Sam’s Club Raised Over $1M For Arkansas Children’s Hospitals

Arkansas Children's Northwest

If you noticed the opportunity to donate to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals while checking out at Walmart or Sam’s Club earlier this summer, you’ll be happy to learn that this year's annual fundraiser collected more than $1m for Arkansas Children’s Hospitals.

  • For the kids: Across the US and Canada, Walmart and Sam’s Clubs annually raise funds through their stores to support local hospitals, specifically in the area of children’s health. Since 1987, the campaign has raised more than $1b for the 180 hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network. 
  • Never too late: It's the collective generosity of NWA through campaigns like this that helped make Arkansas Children's Northwest a reality for our region. If you’d like to join in on the generosity, you’ve still got time. Visit helpkidslivebetter.org to make an online donation.
