War, Fog, and Craft Beer

War, Fog, and Craft Beer

Jan 27, 2018

My bus to Memphis wasn’t until 4pm today, so I had a bit of time to kill. It was raining for most of the morning so I went inside the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History for a while.

 

 

Even though the rain had died down, a thick fog still hung in the air as I headed towards North Little Rock. It gave the now familiar town an unfamiliar and surreal atmosphere.

My original plan had been to stop by one brewery for lunch and then head to the Greyhound station. Last night I discovered another brewery in the area which had a larger food menu. So going into today, I decided to have lunch at one and make a quick visit to the other before leaving town. On my way, I discovered yet another brewery nearby. So I decided to just embrace the opportunity and make the rest of the day a brewery crawl (I should note that this many in one day is not a routine thing for me).

First up was Core Brewing which I was only in briefly but seemed to have a lot of personality and entertainment options.

Then I went to Diamond Bear where I had a plate of bratwurst, sauerkraut and German potato salad. It was easily the best food I had while in Little Rock. I wish I’d known about this place sooner so I could try more of their menu.

Finally, I stopped by Flyway which was my original destination. Since I’d already had lunch, I had a small dessert of vanilla ice cream sourced from Loblolly Creamery.

The ride to Memphis was short and I was able to take a quick nap (beer will do that) which made it even shorter. I spent most of the ride figuring out where to go for dinner. Unlike Little Rock, Memphis is fairly large and spread out. Also, for some reason, the Greyhound station (which is normally centrally located) was rather far south of my hostel and downtown. 

I eventually took an Uber up to Memphis Made Brewing Co.. The brewery didn’t serve food itself, but a nearby food truck delivers food brings whatever you order inside to you. I went with some smoked gouda mac and cheese topped with brisket which hit the spot. With this and the lunch at Diamond Bear, this was easily my best day food-wise since leaving Texas.
