Housed in a historic bathhouse, the Superior is the nation’s first brewery headquartered in a national park, and owner/brewer Rose Schweikhart believes it is the only brewery to use thermal spring water as its main ingredient. The Superior opened as a restaurant and bar in July 2013 with 16 taps, plus pub fare and gelato. This January, Schweikhart introduced Superior’s first beer—Hitchcock Spring Kölsch. True to style, it’s lightly malted and lightly hoppy. Other specialties include Superior Pale Ale, Whittington Park Wheat (a hefeweizen), and the Foul Play Brewlesque (an oatmeal stout). Each beer is named for a person or place in Hot Springs’ history (except for the last, which is named for the local burlesque troupe).
