OZARK BEER CO.
Ozark Beer Company has been officially serving beer in Arkansas since October 2013. But in all reality, it has been a constant work in progress, humbly ran by Lacie Bray and Andy Coates. In 2010 the brewery was born in some tents along the Arkansas River as river guides in the great state of Colorado.

Bourbon double cream stout
bdcs - a bourbon soaked brownie
Aged 7mos in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels, blended and canned, BDCS is the flagship of our barrel-aging endeavors. First brewed in 2014 and first poured in 2015, BDCS has quickly become one of our most popular beers.
Bourbon Soaked Brownie::
BDCS is Brewed For The Barrel, meaning the recipe is designed with the barrel as an ingredient. BDCS ages in our brewery from Summer, through Winter and into early Spring. This means the barrels are subjected to the same temperatures we all are (our brewery is not air-conditioned or heated.)
First, a large batch of base beer is brewed. A 10% ABV milk stout, as roasty as it is sweet, the beer’s aging softens the sweetness and pulls divine oak characteristics from her barrels. Flavors of oak, char, bourbon, vanilla and chocolate swirl together across the months of time.
After the barrels are filled, they are aged for 7ish months. Throughout the process, we are tasting barrels to track the beers’ development.
Once BDCS tells us she’s ready, and we’ve sampled every barrel for the final time, we gently pull the beer from the barrel into a large brite tank for blending, carbonating and cold-conditioning.
We then package BDCS into cans and draught.
Since the beginning, we have held a special little party for our debut of the beer. It’s a mark of time for us, the end of a long journey and the chance to celebrate with friends.
As the far-reaching popularity and demand for BDCS has grown, so have our efforts to meet that demand. In 2018 we began offering a 2nd party, with tickets to the first party being sold only in our taproom to ensure as many Arkansas locals can be the first.
In 2019, after a stern warning from the ABC, we shifted our public sales of cans to an online allotment sale with an entire pick-up week window. This year we worked hard to make that pick-up week special by adding first ever variants and some old vintages to our taps.
We’ve seen the audience grow for BDCS, the large number of people we get to share this beer with, the numbers who travel in and enjoy our town, our locals who expect and love the beer and the beer fans far and wide
