Core Brewing & Distilling Co.


A rapidly expanding Northwest Arkansas brewery, Core Brewing Company is all about hometown pride, offering big, innovative brews rooted in tradition.

Established in Springdale, Arkansas in 2010, Core Brewing & Distilling Co. is out to be Arkansas’ hometown beer. The incredibly successful craft brewery was founded by Jesse Core - a husband, a dad, an entrepreneur, a seventh generation Arkansan, and a beer lover at heart. He is the definition of a hard working, passionate, go-getter, who worked for several years as a software developer before serving as the city councilman in Springdale, and now finally building the largest microbrewery in the state.

Jesse started homebrewing in college in 1992, and it is a hobby he has had ever since. After traveling around post graduation for several years, Jesse returned home to Arkansas and realized there was no good beer to be found. He knew Springdale had potential, so he went to work finding support and investors for establishing his own brewery in 2010. Originally named, Core Brewing Company, the entity has pivoted in recent years to include a line of spiked seltzers and aptly changed the name to Core Brewing & Distilling Co.

The brewery logo, the Dachshund, is a nod to Jesse’s mother’s dog Barney who was a special member of the Core family for over nineteen years. He is now immortal!

At Core Brewing Company, the community is what matters most - after all, it’s who the beer is brewed for. The wide range of premium craft beers are made with diligence and pride of small town America, delivered with the hospitality for which the South is known.

In addition to the main brewery taproom in Springdale, Core Brewing & Distilling Co. has expanded to include another location named Core XNA Taproom in Bentonville, Arkansas. The two locations offer all of the Core beers on tap, plus they offer several signature cocktails, beer cocktails featuring local spirits and brews, exclusive limited-release brews, and their new line of hard seltzers. While the pubs give Core the ability to interact with its customer base, the various locations also offer market research opportunities for newer beers being introduced.

Core Brewing & Distilling Co is growing fast and we applaud the passionate team behind the brand. We hope you enjoy two of Core’s most popular brews in your latest Craft Beer Club shipment. Cheers!
