The Hot Springs’ craft beer and micro brew scene is exploding and Craft Beer Cellar, while fairly new to Hot Springs, has quickly become an integral part of that growth. Owners, Justin and Jen Schalow are beer geeks and that’s not just a marketing campaign; they are truly passionate about beer and its reflected in their selection and knowledge; coupled with a love for serving people and a strong connection to our community you’ll feel right at home.
Craft Beer Cellar Hot Springs is a craft beer bottle shop, whose primary focus has always been the best beer that we can get our hands on. We spend our lives in search of beers made in breweries just down the street or on the other side of the world, that are well-crafted and good examples of either their style or what we think excellent beer should be, keeping in mind that “style” is not everything. We are not snobs, we are beer geeks! We are students of our trade and take great pride in learning everything we can about beer; how it’s made, what the ingredients are, what we should drink it from, what food a beer pairs well or can be made with. We like to tinker with draft systems, tap faucets and kegs, and have been known to brew some pretty ridiculous beer, ourselves. We are your local beer bottle shop and in many states, draft bar for growler fills or in-store draft service. Many of our stores offer limited food service as well as an extensive selection of books, glassware and homebrew supplies. We are good beer, good people, and good times!
“Craft beer isn’t a section of the store for us . . . it’s what we are all about!” – Justin & Jen Schalow
