The people behind Fossil Cove Brewing Co. love NWA and this little corner of the world, naming their brewery after a fossil-laden cove on the shores of Beaver Lake (the brewery's water source). They have a solid selection of 8-10 beers annually with seasonal rotations. If you're feeling like some grub, we definitely recommend a pizza from the food truck Wicked Wood Fired Pizza on site. Our beer of choice is the T-Rex or Birch Ave Blond.

Crisis Brewing is one of the more unique breweries in the area, nestled in a patch of trees almost hiding it from view in the summer months. It was named "lovingly after a midlife crisis" and created for the love of the craft of brewing and community.
