Beer on the Border: The History of Hops in Frontier Arkansas
October 22, 2016

This year’s Fall Ramble took guests on a tour of sites in central and western Arkansas that are associated with Arkansas’s early beer history. Participants visited the Hinderliter Grog Shop in Little Rock, Potts Inn in Pottsville, and the historic Maness Schoolhouse at Fort Chaffee for lunch before arriving in downtown Fort Smith for a tour of the old Knoble Brewery and a discussion of a beer-related court case in Judge Parker’s courtroom at the Fort Smith National Historic Site. The day wrapped up in downtown Van Buren with a reception at the Drennen-Scott Historic Site and dinner at Oliver’s Kitchen.
