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.

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.

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.

St. Patty’s Day: PENNY BEER

These are trying times. We have a plan. Join us in social distancing – party at home!

At Norfork, we want to be a spot of St. Patty’s Day joy and fun:  Buy a Norfork 6-Pack at any one of our participating retailers from March 16 to April 17, 2020, bring us your receipt, and we will give you a crowler of your choice as a to-go from the Taproom for one penny. 

Here’s the fine print: If you buy the 6-pack between March 16, 2020 and April 17, 2020, we’ll honor the crowler for a penny anytime in 2020.  The offer expires 12/31/2020.  The offer is only good as supplies last. There is one 1-penny crowler for each 6-pack receipt your turn in. You must surrender your original receipt for the crowler – no copies or images.  This offer does not apply to the Barley Wine, but applies to all other beer.  The crowler is 1 penny because it is illegal in Arkansas to give beer away.  We always comply with the law!  Towards that end, please drink responsibly.  Obey all laws.  Never drink and drive.  Come back safe and see us again, friend.

Norfork Brewing’s Update on Preparedness

We want to take a moment to update you on the extra steps and safety precautions we are taking as a brewery – and did you know that breweries must be some of the sanitary places in the world?  It’s true – we regularly use strong sanitizers on all surfaces, and we’re stepping up the game. 

Our main priority to always to provide a safe space and product for our community.  During this time we want to ensure we are doing everything we can to help you feel confident, safe and secure. The following are the steps we are currently taking…

1) We are taking extensive measures to deep clean and disinfect all surfaces.   We have some of the strongest disinfectants in the world that we use every day in brewing, and we are using them throughout the entire facility.

2) Our staff has been diligently cleaning all surfaces a minimum of three times a day with CDC approved disinfectant as well as taking extra steps to keep surfaces as clean as possible while the taproom is open.

 3) If you feel sick, or as though you have been exposed to or are in close relation with an individual who may have been exposed to the virus, we ask that you help us continue to provide a safe and clean facility by taking the time necessary away from the taproom to ensure no further exposure. We will keep the beer cold for you, when you are better!

 4) We will continue to stay in communication with you while we ensure we are doing everything we can to stay on top of this pandemic. If any further action is deemed necessary such as facility restrictions or closure, we will be sure to communicate this information immediately via email and our Facebook page.

5) When you do drop by, we ask that you do your part in helping us keep the taproom sanitary – we have supplied sanitary wipes at every table.  Please wipe your surfaces down when you leave.  Please wash your hands (#20 seconds), use hand sanitizer, and practice good judgment.  If everyone does their part it makes a huge impact in the cleanliness of the overall facility.

We appreciate and value each of you and want to assure you that we have your best interest in mind. We are doing everything we can to remain open for your convenience by providing a safe and clean taproom. However, the safety of our community is of most importance. Please feel free to bring any questions or concerns to us. We want to make sure all of your questions are answered and any concerns are addressed. Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding.

Thank you,

Jason Aamodt & Mitch Krauss
