I've tried to set the on-line shop up to be as user friendly, uncluttered, and simple as possible. I believe I've got most of the bugs out of it, but I know there is still much to do. That said, I think you'll find it easy to shop. If you're in Northwest Arkansas, you can order on-line for free in-store pick up. I'll have the order pulled and ready for you to check out when you arrive. Orders up to $99.99 will be shipped ground at a flat rate of $8.95. Orders from $100 up will ship free, though certain restrictions may apply due to weight or size considerations, and these will be assessed at the rate charged by the carrier. In other words, I can't ship you a flat bed trailer of 2 row malt for free, but I'll do my best to get your order out within 24 hours and in your hands as soon as possible.
As always, thanks so much for your business and allowing me to be part of your brewing or wine making day.
Here's a video tour of the shop when it first opened. Seems like a lifetime ago, but our first day was Saturday, November 26, 2016. Since then, I've added lots of new products and the store is better stocked and organized. Drop by and check it out.
Our goal is to offer an extensive line of the freshest quality ingredients, equipment, and educational resources for beer, wine, mead, cider and cheese making products to the home enthusiast in Northwest Arkansas and online. Like you, I’m a home brewer. I’ve pursued the hobby for more than 20 years and have been making meads and wines for nearly that long. I love to cook and admit that I approach the hobby from a culinary point of view. Our philosophy and one of our guiding principles is the idea that this a food store first, and a hardware store second. It’s all about the ingredients: the freshest hops, grains, yeasts and of course a great selection of wine kits. I plan to carry locally produced honey and other ingredients as soon possible. I’ll keep you posted. I believe strongly in a farm to table approach and as far as it is possible and practicable, I’ll do my best to bring local products to the shop and to promote and support the NWA brewing community at every turn.
We strongly support our active duty and veteran communities, and to that end we offer an in-store 10 percent discount to any active or former service members. We also offer an in-store 10 percent discount to American Homebrewer Association members as well as current members in good standing with of our local brew clubs, FLOPS and OZ - Ozark Zymurgists.
On behalf of my wife, Gretchen, and our son, Chase, I invite you to drop by the store, or shop online. We would be honored to help you with all of your home brewing and home wine making needs.
Best Wishes, Steve

FYI: I changed the name to Ozark Amber for the English spelling instead of Aux Arc, which is French. Same beer, different spelling.

Here’s a great session ale that’s a breeze to make and easier to enjoy. It’s great on its own, but this versatile ale pairs beautifully with classic pub food, including fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, burgers, or pizza. East Kent Golding hops are smooth and delicate with floral, lavender, spice, honey, earth, lemon, orange, grapefruit and thyme overtones. Fuggle hops bring pleasant mint, grass and floral tones to the beer. Nottingham ale yeast is the perfect yeast to bring out the biscuit tones from a touch of Victory malt. Cheers!

With a whisper of Beechwood Smoked Brewer’s Malt, Dark Crystal and Aromatic specialty malts, this Extra Special Bitter will make you want to head to the back yard and break out your BBQ gear. This beer pairs beautifully with smoked meats; rich cheeses — like aged Gouda or English Stilton — and oysters on the half shell. At 5% ABV, you can enjoy it all evening. Challenger and Target hops grown in the UK, along with Nottingham ale yeast make this a truly memorable British-style ESB, with just a hint of smoky goodness. Cheers!
This copper-colored beer is easy to brew and will reward your short brew day with copious amounts of American hop flavor and aroma. Since this is an extract beer, you can easily vary the alcohol content. Adding more water in the kettle or fermenter will make this pale ale more session-able.
