We told you back in May about Core Brewing Company opening a tap room in Har-Ber Meadows, and a grand opening is planned for tonight (June 12) at 5 p.m. In other Core news, the company is hiring a delivery driver and is about to launch its Pounders Club for hardcore fans.
According to a post on Facebook, people who want in the club can pay $75 at the brewery and get a special 22 ounce mug to keep at their home base Core as well as a limited-edition T-shirt. They’ll also get 15 percent off merchandise, a pour in their mug for the cost of a 16 ounce pint, a $25 gift card and an exclusive end-of-the-year party. Sounds pretty sweet if you spend a lot of time at Core pubs.
In other beer news, Fossil Cove Brewing Co. showed off its new cans on Facebook this week and plans a can release party soon.

Speaking of sweets, more info this week on Chunky Dunky serving up treats from Little Rock’s Loblolly Creamery. Chunky Dunk owner Sarah Slimp says Loblolly approached her and it was “a no brainer” to work with them. To being with she will offer five flavors: double vanilla, peach buttercream, onyx delight, campfire s’mores, and aztec chocolate. There will also be two new sandwiches, the Chunk Norris and the Leslie Knoppe, all of which should be available as you read this.
