Core Brewing & Distilling Company has partnered with the University of Arkansas Athletic Department to become the Official Craft Brewery of the Arkansas Razorbacks.

The department announced the partnership Tuesday. The news comes just weeks after the school announced plans to expand alcohol sales at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

“As an Arkansas-based company, Core has an understanding of our state and the deep connection between Arkansans and the Razorbacks,” said Hunter Yurachek, the school’s director of athletics. “We are appreciative of Core’s support of our program, which will assist us in continuing to make a difference in the lives of our student-athletes. Additionally, our fans will benefit from the opportunity to enjoy some of their favorite Core brands at Razorback events.”

The school will offer beer from Core, as well as Anheuser Busch products and a limited wine selection throughout the stadium. Additionally, Miller/Coors products will be available in club areas. Domestic drafts will run around $7 inside the stadium, with craft beer and wine priced at around $9. The beer and wine stations will be separated from the regular concession areas.
