Lost Forty Brewing, Arkansas’s largest award-winning maker of craft beer, announced that it is opening a new location at 822 E. 6th Street in Little Rock. This expansion is part of the effort to make the downtown Little Rock area a destination for great beer, food and entertainment.
“Lost Forty’s expansion downtown is just what we need right now. Their commitment to excellence and exemplary corporate contributions have brought them national recognition and reflects well on Little Rock as well,” Rett Tucker, principal and co-chairman of the Board at Newmark MTP and advocate with the Downtown Little Rock Partnership, said in a statement. “As one of the most popular anchors in the East Village, this additional investment demonstrates their strong confidence in the future.”
The new establishment (which has not been named) is projected to open in the spring of 2021, but Lost Forty Brewing staff is excited about the upcoming addition.
“Our brewing team is excited about adding to our capacity for small batch and experimental project production,” said Lost Forty brewer and production manager Dylan Yelenich. “Having more opportunity to be creative will be fun for our team and our patrons.”
The focus of the new location will be on offering small batch beers brewed on-site alongside Lost Forty classic and seasonal brews. A new menu has been created just for this location by executive chef Scott McGehee and his culinary team. This new menu will feature a wide range of colorful dishes made for lounging at the bar, pairing with drink flights on the patio or for snacking on while enjoying entertainment in the location’s yard.
“Little Rock’s local dining and craft brewing scenes have gone through a major renaissance over the past ten years, and the team at Yellow Rocket Concepts has been a major factor in that growth,” said Gretchen Hall, President and CEO of the Little Rock Visitors and Convention Bureau. “Now with their seventh concept in Little Rock, they’re showing an even stronger commitment to the city. I look forward not only to visiting myself, but for locals and visitors alike to experience what’s sure to be a new landmark destination in the East Village.”
