The Mountain and the Squirrel

by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The mountain and the squirrel
Had a quarrel,
And the former called the latter
“Little prig.”
Bun replied,
You are doubtless very big;
But all sorts of things and weather
Must be taken in together
To make up a year
And a sphere.
And I think it no disgrace
To occupy my place.
If I’m not so large as you,
You are not so small as I,
And not half so spry:
I’ll not deny you make
A very pretty squirrel track.
Talents differ; all is well and wisely put;
If I cannot carry forests on my back,
Neither can you crack a nut.

Will we see you this weekend, Friend? We sure do hope so. We’d like to say our talent is making some tasty beer, which we will serve you on this cold day by the toasty fire. There’s some fine pizza to enjoy with that beer. So come sit by the fire with us and contemplate Ralph Waldo Emerson’s timely and true words with our founder, Jason Aamodt.

Jan 7 to 10, 2021

Hi Friend!

We are delighted to tell you about the great week we have on tap for you. Open Thursday noon to 8 pm with pizza to order available to pair with your favorite brews on tap.

On Friday, we open at noon and at 7 welcome Robert Scott back for a pleasant acoustic evening. Pizza will be available until nine and we close at 10.

On Saturday we open at noon and Dorethy and McGrath will be with us at 7. If you have never heard them play, you are in for a treat. They write most of their own music which is fun and engaging and pair it with some great covers. Of course, pizza and tasty beer all day until we close at 10.

Sunday we open at noon and close at 8. This is generally a quieter day, perfect for enjoying your favorite beer with a pizza.

We do hope you will be with us this weekend! See you then!

What the ale?

Click on the link below for an article and video that recently appeared in the Tulsa World to learn more about your favorite little brewery. Now that we are distributed throughout both Arkansas and Oklahoma, we are really excited that more folks can enjoy our beer.

We are very proud of our beers made with pristine water and ingredients right in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. And, we would like to thank you for your continued support of our little brewery.

What the Ale: Tulsan opens brewery in Arkansas now distributing in Oklahoma


We are Nature’s Beer®!

We are very proud of our beer, brewed in Norfork, Arkansas along the banks of the White River, in Ozark National Forest, using crystal clear water welling deep from the famous limestone aquifers of the Ozark Mountains.  We use non-GMO grains, all grown in the US without glyphosate, locally foraged wild fruits and other key ingredients, organic when and wherever possible. We derive some of our yeast from the native Paw Paw fruit found along the banks of the White River. The exceptional quality and flavor of our beer flows not only from these ingredients, but also from the care and commitment we put into making every barrel. You can taste it in our beer. 

We can four types of beer and we keg a fifth one. If your preference is light and citrusy, you’re sure to enjoy our Scurvy Dog. Like a light bodied, smooth Stout with hints of chocolate and coffee?  If so, our Black Oak Stout is for you.  Subtle and delicious? Easy drinking? Made with our Paw Paw yeast, our Woodsman Pilsner has your name on it. Everyone loves our light and refreshing EZ Ryder—true light beer, brewed by us.  Our Bury Your Nut Brown Ale is worth stockpiling – its available in kegs!

Interested in how we got here and ended up brewing the beer you love? You can learn more about our team on the “About Us” tab.  

Find Nature’s Beer at your local liquor store, or on tap in restaurants throughout Arkansas and Oklahoma. If you haven’t visited our taproom, do stop in and say hello.  We are open year round Thursday and Sunday noon to eight and Friday and Saturday noon to ten.  (Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and Easter) We have live music Saturday nights and made to order pizza, fresh from our pizza oven whenever we are open.  

Weekend Events December 18-20

We look forward to seeing you this weekend. As always, the beer is cold and tasty and waiting just for you. This weekend you can try something a little different— we have some great beers from Lost Forty Brewing in Little Rock. The pizza is fresh and hot, too.

We hope to see you this weekend to get a little cheer on!

Dollar pints at the taproom!

Remember to save your receipt when you buy a six-pack. You can find Norfork awesomeness in a can at our taproom or at any of your favorite stores across the state of Arkansas: https://nfbrew.com/where/ 

Bring your receipt(s) as proof of purchase. For each six-pack showing on a receipt, we’ll pour you a pint for $1.  

Now that’s a good deal! All the while you’re supporting local businesses (the grocery stores, liquor stores, and us) and drinking some of the best beer in the state!

With thanks, love, and gratitude from Ben, Jason, Kristy, & Mitch

One Dollar Pints When The Taproom Opens back up!

Hi All! Hope everyone out there is safe and healthy during these unprecedented times with Convoid-19. We’ll all get through this together. We all need something to look forward to so here’s what we’re gonna do for you:

Purchase a six-pack at our taproom (curbside only!), your local Harps grocery store, or any liquor store. Save your receipt(s).

For each six-pack purchased we’ll pour you a pint (normally $5.50) for $1 when the taproom opens back up. Bring your receipt(s) as proof of purchase.

The economics of this are pretty simple. The six-pack you purchased at full price between now and then will essentially become 1/2 price (i.e. $4.50 off) when you redeem your $1/pint!

Now that’s a good deal! You can’t buy a sixer of the lowest budget beer for that! All the while you’re supporting local businesses (the grocery stores, liquor stores, and us) and drinking some of the best beer around!

Until then, be safe! With thanks, love, and gratitude from Ben, Jason, Kristy, & Mitch

The Governor Makes the Call

The Governor called it. We’re still open for curbside delivery / take away sale. The taproom will be closed until they say when.

Until then, you can get our beer at Harp’s and any Liquor store in Mountain Home, Harp’s in Fayetteville, and Liquor stores in Little Rock.

https://www.dfa.arkansas.gov/news/details/restaurants-and-microbreweries-allowed-to-deliver .

Be safe. Wash your hands. No smoochin’ with those that are Flu’in. Drink Norfork Brewing Company Beer six feet apart from each other.

Norfork Brewing Company Schedule: 3/19 – 2/22

Hi All, We’re cleaned, sanitized, and ready for you in the Taproom. The Hillbilly Grub Shack is here this weekend with Mitch on guitar on Friday and Art playing music on Saturday.

With your health and safety in mind, food, six-packs, and crowlers are always available for take away if you prefer to do a fly by.

We’re continuing to assess the situation with the Brewer’s Association, other businesses in the area, and the state. If things require us to change, including closing, we will keep you informed. Please continue to check our web and social medial pages to stay abreast of any changes in plans and schedule. Be safe.
