If you haven't visited Hot Springs lately, you're missing out on quite a gem. Superior Bathhouse Brewery is located on Historic Bathhouse Row in Hot Springs National Park and is home to Hot Springs' first Craft Beer Tasting Room, on-site Brewery.
I spent an afternoon back in April photographing some of the most popular brews and non-brews that Superior has to offer. In the photo above is their Killer Irish Red served in a tankard.
For the dark beer lovers, on your next visit you can try (above) Foul Play Stout served in a pint glass showcasing artwork by local tattoo artist and founding Foul Play Cabaret Member, Doris Night.
For the blonde beer lovers, try Hitchcock Spring Kölsch, seen below.
Another popular beer is Chaudfontaine Houblon (below). Chaudfontaine is a Belgian town located in the province of Liège and when translated literally, Chaudfontaine means Hot Spring.
For those looking for the perfect nibble to pair with their beer, one of Superiors most popular items is their Southern Black-Eyed Pea Hummus served with pretzel chips. I can eat this stuff by the bowl.
Or you can try their Superior Plate. Served at dinner, the Superior Plate featured Arkansas-own Petit Jean seasonal meats and Kent Walker artisan cheeses. In the photo it's paired with Chaudfontaine Houblon.
Looking for the sweeter, more indulgent drinks at Superior? A local favorite is their root beer float. Superior uses Arkansas-made Yarnell's Ice Cream serving over 40 floats daily and going through more than 50 gallons of ice cream weekly. We went through a few tries to get the right photo and we tasted as we photographed.
