FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Fayetteville Visitors Bureau has expanded the Fayetteville Ale Trail to include a partner brewery, Rogers-based Ozark Beer Company.

Nearing its one year anniversary, the ale trail has garnered national media attention and over 10,000 passports have been given out in the first nine months of the program. With the addition of Ozark Beer Company, the Fayetteville Ale Trail now features seven Northwest Arkansas breweries: Apple Blossom Brewing Co., Core Brewing and Distilling Co., Fossil Cove Brewing Co., Ozark Beer Company, Saddlebock Brewery, Tanglewood Branch Beer Co., and West Mountain Brewing Co.

“Throughout the first year we have seen unprecedented growth and participation,” said Jessica Leonard, Fayetteville Visitors Bureau communications manager. “As the state’s first ale trail, we want our participants to experience a glimpse into the unique craft brewery culture in Northwest Arkansas. All breweries involved with the ale trail brew their craft beers in-house, and each have an interesting story to tell.”

There is no cost to participate, and those interested can pick up a Fayetteville Ale Trail passport at the Visitors Center on the downtown square, located at 21 S. Block Avenue or at any of the participating breweries. Completed passports can be mailed or brought to the Visitors Bureau for a free ‘I Completed the Fayetteville Ale Trail’ decal.
