After searching the Arkansas area for a facility suitable for brewing beer – Steve Rehbock came to realize that the best beer comes from a brewery that was designed and built to be a brewery. Much time and care went into the planning and building of Saddlebock Brewery. First, we wanted to make sure we built a facility that would allow us to brew great beer. But we also wanted to design a craft brewery that was environmentally friendly. So, we made choices along the way to do just that. We broke ground on Saddlebock Brewery in 2011. Along with the facility requirements, we decided that we wanted a place where everyone could enjoy and fall in love with the natural beauty of Arkansas the way we did. We owned a horse farm, which was conveniently located near Fayetteville, Springdale and on a major road, yet still away from the noise and fast pace of the city. It was a little piece of paradise, so it was the ideal spot. Working with the community and county we were able to build in such a way as to have minimal effect on the agricultural and residential areas nearby, we were also able to help bring city water from Fayetteville to the area.
Saddlebock brewery’s building includes a true cellar on the lower level-3. And, the cellar stays naturally cool all year, reducing the need for conditioned cooling. This is also the level where we store the bulk of our beer and kegs. Saddlebock does all its bottling by hand on the Saddlebock farm.
We have even been honored by TripAdvisor’s vacation rental site announced that through industry research & traveler feedback, Saddlebock was listed among the “50 most talked about wineries and breweries in each state” recognized on the list of 2014 Top Wineries & Breweries Worth Traveling For in Arkansas! Which is a great honor in itself, but among TripAdvisor we have been fortunate to be awarded other such accolades.
Saddlebock Brewery was also named among “14 BREWERY TOURS IN THE US YOU NEED TO EXPERIENCE” in 2015. As one of the highlighted breweries in Northwest Arkansas, we will continue to make great beer, using all natural ingredients in the natural state of Arkansas. We look forward to continuing to grow and perfect our craft, with an unbridled passion in everything we do.
