Flyway is a ten barrel microbrewery near the banks of the Arkansas River, in the heart of the Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock, Arkansas. We pride ourselves on protecting our local land and the living things that thrive here, staying true to the ingredients we find in our own backyard, and remaining small and personal. To us, the Flyway experience is much more than brewing beer. It’s about using the land and resources we are given, and crafting something truly special. We try to pour the essence of Arkansas’s breathtaking natural habitat into everything we do.
Our name comes from the awe-inspiring Mississippi Flyway, the largest bird migratory route in the Americas. Running from central Canada to the area surrounding the Gulf of Mexico, the Flyway bottles up like a funnel over Arkansas, representing the narrowest portion in the route. Here, the largest, longest, most complex and important Flyways in the hemisphere converge. Naturally, this only happens because of the distinct configurations and influences of the landscape here, that you won’t find anywhere else on the planet.
Everything from the design of the brewery, with earth tones and natural landscapes of the migration, to the brews themselves with their convergence of Arkansas native flavors reflect this magnificent natural phenomenon. At Flyway Brewing, we see it as our responsibility to think deeply about the lessons that only nature can teach. We observe carefully and respectfully, and then we work hard to apply all that we’ve learned. We have the privilege to come in every day and create specialty ales, made by hand, and then share them with you. We hope that our passion bubbles over in every brew we serve. Come be a part of the migration.
Now, please go wet your beak responsibly.
