A new brewery, restaurant and live music venue is set to open in uptown Fayetteville this week.
According to a sign posted near the entrance, the long-awaited JBGB project created by the folks behind JJ’s Grill is set to open on Wednesday, May 10 at 3615 N. Steele Blvd.
The 12,000-square-foot facility, which includes a full production brewery, restaurant, stage for live music, and huge outdoor activity area complete with bars, a BBQ truck, outdoor games, volleyball courts, a wading pool, and other amenities, will be the first of its kind in Fayetteville.
JBGB will also offer free live music every Thursday night throughout the summer with a pretty impressive lineup of headliners, including Josh Abbot Band, Randy Rogers Band, The Strumbellas, Kellie Pickler, Lake Street Dive, The Record Company, and others.
The brewery will brew a variety of craft beers including IPA, pale ale, brown ale, and Belgian styles. A flagship light lager is also in the works.
The restaurant will officially celebrate its grand opening with a “Dinner on the Deck” event on Friday, May 19 featuring live music by ShotGun Billys starting at 7 p.m. Proceeds from the event will benefit Arkansas Support Network.
