Fayetteville has seen its fair share of breweries open over the past few years. Everywhere you turn it’s all about local IPAs and stouts. For local restaurateur Jody Thornton local beer can be much more than a hop storm of flavor. His new endeavor – JJ’s Beer Garden & Brewing Co. – will ensure light lager will be another viable option for people thirsty for locally crafted beer.
Thornton, a native of Hot Springs, is a veteran of the restaurant and bar industries. After spending some time in Fayetteville as an undergraduate he moved to Austin, Texas to work for Fred Nelson at Souper Salad. Despite success there as general manager, family ties eventually brought him back to Northwest
We are so happy to be breaking ground for JJ’s new building located in the heart of Uptown Fayetteville! This new location will house their corporate office, along with the Brewery and their new restaurant, JBGB. Come and celebrate at 10 am on Monday June 13th with us. We will see you there!
Directions: one the south corner of Steele Blvd and Van Asche, across the street from the UARK Credit Union built site.
