Little Rock has ended up with an amazing number of great breweries.  Flyway, Blue Canoe, Rebel Kettle, Lost 40, Stones Throw, Diamond Bear, and Core (same folks from Springdale) are all going good in the Downtown area, and Buffalo Brewing is going well in midtown.  If you are coming in for the game, you have tons of places to try out.

Our bathrooms are top notch.

I used to prefer the long troughs for nostalgia reasons but it can get uncomfortable when they get packed and you have a ton of guys with their weiners out staring at each other.

Just depends, I'm not a huge fan of the stuff they distribute (outside of Leghound which is a quality beer), but at their tasting rooms and breweries they have some great beers available.  I've had a couple stouts and imperials at the tasting room in Rogers that were very good beers.  They had a double IPA called Black Lighting that was probably my favorite Core beer.

Do yourself a favor and check out Flyway Brewery in North Little Rock after the game.  On the corner of 4th and Maple.  Best brewery in central Arkansas.  No, I'm not an owner but these guys put out a great product.

https://m.facebook.com/flywaybrewingcompany/

In Little Rock, I personally prefer Blue Canoe at 425 E 3rd St. The Razorback Rye PA and the stout are awesome.

I'll check out Flyway this Spring after we move back to Arkansas.

Bottom line for folks traveling to LR -- there are some good young breweries in the Rock.

Congrats, I've got a couple of family members who are alcoholics. I know how tough it is.

Personally, I love beer, but if you can't enjoy a couple without binging, it's probably best not to drink.

Lost Forty's Pale Ale and IPA are both solid, I need to visit their brewery next time I'm in Little Rock.

Try their Love Honey Bock and Bare Bones Pilsner as well.  Both very good beers.  If you are in town on a Sunday, their brunch is a must try.

First game in Fayetteville

The Bama game will be my first Razorback game in Fayetteville. I'm looking at some advice from you regulars on a place to eat, park and how early to arrive. I've booked a hotel for Saturday night so we will be coming in from Jonesboro early Saturday. Thanks in advance.

As far as parking, if you want to park for free park at Baum stadium and walk up the hill to the football stadium.  Or there are shuttles that run back and forth if you don't want to walk.

It will be crowded all day with tailgating, get there early and enjoy the atmosphere.

We parked at Fayetteville High for La Tech game and it was an easy walk over (Fayetteville High borders UofA campus).  It's an easy walk and takes you right by BWA if you want to pop in for a look around or buy some gear.

In the past if I was planning on getting my Dickson on after the game I'd park on Dickson St and then walk over.  It's a bit more of a hike but takes you right through campus.  Dickson is paid public parking but not too much to get covered for the entire day.

Hope you enjoy the trip.

To piggyback on the previous post, if you want the Dickson Street experience, you can park at Central United Methodist Church.  We have parking just behind the building outside and a four story parking garage as well.  It is a good hike, but you pass just about everything on Dickson street on the way.  I agree that Fayetteville High is a great option if you pass on the Dickson Experience. Have a great trip!

The free shuttles they are talking about only run from the Baum Stadium parking lots up to the stadium.  They start running 4 hrs prior to KO.

A cornucopia of choices on places to eat, all will be busy, so plan accordingly. As far as parking, Baum is free, and the closer you get to the stadium, the more it will cost. You won't be able to access Razorback Rd as all of that is scholarship parking, but there is parking north and west of the stadium on some side streets. FHS is also a good choice, and handy. Just have some patience, as it will be packed on the streets, especially post game. Enjoy, I've been coming from Jonesboro for 20+ years.

Tailgating in Fayetteville
« Reply #16981 on: October 03, 2016, 10:30:57 pm »

Lifelong fan but not alumni here.  I typically go to every Little Rock game, but living in Memphis and working alot makes Fayetteville games a challenge (I'm actually of the move all games to Fayetteville not that it matters).  I'm taking my wife to the game this weekend.  Question - where is the best place for me to park and tailgate?  Every time I've been to Fayetteville, I've gone with a buddy of mine who has several connections and we've bounced from spot to spot.  We are driving to Conway Friday and driving the rest of the way on Saturday, so I should have plenty of time for pregame festivities.  Any help is much appreciated.

Head up Friday night and get out of that horrible town of Jonesboro. That's a long drive to really enjoy a good day of tailgating. Nothing better than a long day of food, drinks, friends, and a Bama ass kicking.

If you can get there early, there could be free parallel parking (south bound only) on Arkansas Avenue in front of Old Main.    You can then easily walk to Dickson Street and then stroll across campus and down to the stadium......   also, you picked a great game for your first one in Fayettenam........

I'll be three drinks in by 11  ;), there are some spots north of the stadium as well off of Cleveland and off of Maple, west of Razorback Road.
I think those are $20 per spot.

you need to be at the north end zone parking lot two hours before kickoff and welcome Hogs off the bus. Its a must for first timers, and you can then walk across the street to grassy area for public music and tailgating. You will have a blast.

Also the band does a mini pep rally in the gardens before the game which is pretty neat to go to if you are down around that area.  I agree that Fayetteville High is a great place to park, just know it cost $10 I believe.  Last game Zaxby's had a tent in front of Bud Walton with sandwhiches and the game before that it was Hellmans Mayo with burgers.

Not sure about catering tents to be honest, but the Union (right across Stadium from The Pit) food court should be open. Not sure what they've changed in the year and a half since I graduated, but there should be several options open in there.

Takes you away from the tailgate atmosphere (just barely) but it's still right where the action is, meaning you're not going out of your way if you choose to eat there.

It's quicker, or seems that way, if you park at Mr burger and walk.  There's a walk up hill but after that it's gravy.

At least one of the shuttles that runs from Baum to the stadium starts its route down Dickson St. I always eat and drink at Hammontrees before the game and get on the bus right on Dickson across the street from Brewski's etc. Same side as Walton Arts Center.
