Upcoming CRAFT BREWS Events Sept. 20: Zoo Brew, Little Rock

Sept 22: Little Rocktoberfest, North Little Rock


he microbrewery phenomenon is alive and thriving in Arkansas! Across the country in the last 10 years, something strange and extraordinary has happened. A 200-year-old industry has exploded with new brewery establishments and more than doubled its workforce. What is equally amazing is that this has happened during a time when U.S. beer consumption has actually declined. The growth of microbreweries and craft beers is a direct outcome of changes in consumer taste, with people looking for fuller flavor and greater variety. Brew Fests are popping up across the country, reflecting the growing popularity of craft beers. Each year, the Ouachita Region hosts the Hot Springs Bath Haus Beer Festival and the Natural State Beer & Wine Festival. Central Arkansas also hosts a Great Arkansas Beer Festival, Food & Foam Fest. Today, there are more than 30 breweries across Arkansas,

ycle along the West Mountain Trail in Hot Springs National Park for a mountain top experience and beautiful fall views. Spanning a little more than a mile, the West Mountain Trail intersects the Mountain Top Trail above Prospect Ave. The trail also crosses West Mountain Dr. onto a stone footbridge before merging with the Canyon Trail. Start at Whittington Park on the Mountain Top Trail and connect into West Mountain Trail for a nice loop trail experience. Don't miss the nearby Arkansas Alligator Farm and Petting Zoo (AlligatorFarmZoo. com), a one-of-a-kind attraction that has been in Hot Springs for more than 100 years. Treat yourself to a cold brew or two at one of the great microbreweries located near this trail including the Superior Bathhouse Brewery (Superior-

with at least one in each major city in the state. Many of their names reflect their Arkansan heritage. For example, Blue Canoe is named for the founders’ love of canoeing the Buffalo River, and Diamond Bear reflects the first two Arkansas state nicknames. Hot Springs’ Superior Bathhouse Brewery turned the long-vacant Superior Bathhouse into a brewery, tasting room, restaurant, and event venue. This microbrewery is noted for not only being the first brewery in a National Park, but also the world’s first to use the thermal spring water as a main ingredient. For local brews, head to SQZBX Brewery and Pizza Joint, Grateful Head Pizza Oven and Beer Garden, Bubba Brew’s, or Superior Bathhouse Brewery in Hot Springs! And Little Rock boasts Rebel Kettle Brewery and Damgoode Pies Brewhouse in the River Market. With variety like these establishments, it's safe to say the craft beer trend is alive and well in Arkansas.

Ouch! My Back Hurts! Visit Dr. Dailey for Relief


hiropractic care is more than just making the pain disappear. "It is about learning, understanding, and taking care of your body to improve your quality of life,” notes Dr. Don Dailey, who has been meeting the chiropractic needs of Hot Springs Village residents for more than 13 years. A native Arkansan, Dr. Dailey attended Southern Arkansas University and graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in 2005. Dr. Dailey made the decision to practice in Hot Springs Village because he liked the region. His specialty is decompression of the spine to help bulging discs, herniated discs, and neuropathy. Dr. Dai-

ley says working with Village seniors is both rewarding and challenging. The challenges come from witnessing unique conditions. The rewards come from caring for seniors who are taking better care of themselves and being more active than seniors of years ago. Since back pain is often about more than the back, Dr. Dailey has developed a strategy for his patients. He seeks to educate patients about chiropractic care and other natural solutions to common health problems, motivating them to take a more active and responsible role in restoring and maintaining their health.

RE/MAX will be serving house-made smoked brats and hot dogs from Clampit's Country Kitchen and Meat Market at the event.

Rockefeller Cancer Institute at UAMS. Cancer touches the lives of everyone we know. Working together we are one step closer to a cure." Both Joey and Lynn Clampit, who own Clampit's, are cancer survivors. "This a cause that is near and dear to our hearts," said Joey Clampit.
