New Brewing in Amity

Slate Rock Brewing opened in Amity–which is about 1.5 hours away from Little Rock–in April. According to the Facebook page, normal business hours are Friday & Saturday 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday 2 p.m.-7 p.m. Seems like it might be a nice weekend, day trip to head down there, grab a couple beers, then swing over to Deluca’s in Hot Springs for some pizza. I’m just saying.
