The “Brew Bus” is a new transportation service in Little Rock that seeks to connect the growing craft brewery scene in the city. It is the idea of Little Rock transplant Donavan Dossett, who moved to Arkansas from Denver in December and saw the need for a transportation system that he says are plentiful in Colorado.
He bought a bus with 191,000 miles on it a month ago, giving it a new engine and stereo, turning it into a 15-person party van to transport people between breweries.
“The microbreweries are not just little mom and pop things,” Dossett said. “These are organizations and industries that are up and coming.”
The bus will begin running on Saturday February 14, running in 30 minute loops so people can come and go to each brewery as they please. It will start at Diamond Bear Brewery in north Little Rock and then travel to Vino’s, Stone’s Throw, Blue Canoe, Lost Forty, Rock Town Distillery, and Flying Saucer before returning to Diamond Bear.
“We supply the transportation and have fun,” he added.
Tickets for the bus cost $20 a piece and runs between 4 and 8 p.m.
