Core Brewing & Distilling Co. Announces New Pub Location in
Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport
New Full-Service Concept Sixth Core Public House Location, First in 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fayetteville, Ark. (February 25, 2016) – Core Brewing & Distilling Co., creators of Arkansas’ hometown beer, and Paradies Lagardère, the travel retail leader in North America, are partnering to open an exciting new concept for passengers at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport. Popular local pub Core Public House will open in Concourse A, near Gate 6 in February 2016.
Core Public House pubs are popular local spots that feature a laid-back atmosphere and award-winning locally-made craft beer. The location at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport is a full-service restaurant with 10 taps that will provide delicious food options carefully prepared to complement Core Brews. Favorite staples such as Leg Hound and Arkansas Red, as well as a full line of seasonal beers will be available. Busy travelers will enjoy the concept’s warm, rich décor, comfortable seating and large screen televisions.
“I like to think of our Pubs as ‘Decompression Zones,’ where you can relax and enjoy a cold brew with friends. Our pub atmosphere reflects the attitude of our company, friendly people making good beer. We’re thrilled to provide a new experience for travelers at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport to relax and enjoy one of our craft beers,” said Jesse Core, CEO, Core Brewing & Distilling Co.
“On February 25, we will have the pleasure of cutting the ribbon on our newest food and beverage option, Core Public House. Core Public House gives our travelers a true taste of Northwest Arkansas upon arrival at our airport. The airport team is always looking for ways to improve the customer experience. This has been accomplished in large part by the commitment of our partner Paradies Lagardère,” Mike Johnson, chairman of the board of directors, Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport.
“We’re excited to partner with Core Brewing & Distilling Co. to open a Core Public House in Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport. We added Core’s Hilltop IPA to our selection of beers nearly three years ago, and it quickly became our best seller, so it was natural for us to expand our relationship with Core. Our guests have been clear that high-quality, locally-crafted beer is what they are looking for, so we’re more than happy to give them exactly that,” said Bill Casey, senior vice president, Food and Beverage, Paradies Lagardère.
Core Brewing & Distilling Co.’s foundation is quality, and recently the brewery won Arkansas Times’ Toast of the Town “Best local brewery state-wide,” Celebrate Magazine’s “Very Best in Local Beer,” and Foamfest’s Best Brewery in Northwest Arkansas. It also developed the popular Core Public House, which currently has seven locations, including the airport location, with two others opening soon:
