Stopped in here to grab a pint or two on my way through while traveling on business... the service was terrific...attentive and helpful and very knowledgeable about the beer they were serving. I had a DIPA and a doppelbock and wanted to try the food as the menu looked amazing...I just didnt have the time but I'm hoping I will be able to get back. I would recommend a stop here if you are in the area

Had a very nice time at this brewery. They have added a patio since here last a couple years ago. This is good because Ralphie the family pit bull was with us. Ralphie was served first by our very nice and efficient waiter. Had an excellent Cobb salad, pizza and black eyed peas hummus. The wild ales - one a lager, the other a stout - went very well with the food. I look forward to my next visit.

My wife and I visited this brewpub on our recent trip to Little Rock. We took an uber to the location, which is in an Industrial area, with off street parking. The feel is open, with plenty of seating. We took stools at the bar, and each ordered a flight. Servers were prompt and friendly, and the beer is okay. They had a mix of stouts, IPA's, Sours, and other various session beers on tap. They were fresh, but not particularly well made. All had a bit of a homebrew quality. We didn't try the food, but the place was packed and the crowd was having a great time.

space is a comfortable cross between industrial warehouse & german biergarten. selection of beer was heavy on the hops (IPAs, PAs). and overall beers were average, nothing noteworthy. service was great, our server was attentive & fun. food was very good. would return for the food not necessarily the beer.

Visited on Christmas Eve. The brunch menu was great, there were 12 beers on tap, we got some flights and enjoyed everything. The owners were very friendly (they were operating the gift shop), and we snagged some cans/swag to go.

If you're brewery-touring, Rebel Kettle is a block away, so you can kill 2 with one stop.

Hopping joint at lunchtime. Rowdy local crowd. Good sized warehouse with tasting room brewpub sectioned on one end. Bar seats 10, a dozen or so tables. 12 beers on tap, the one I had was solid. Food smelt good, but did not try... next time.

Visited on a Friday at dinner. Crowded but room at the bar.

V - A foodie vibe more than beer. Bright, clear, bustling, active but not too loud. Good acoustics. A nice big glass window that looks into the brewery. 4.25

Q - When you’re at the source you can't go wrong. Proper glassware all around, including tecnu style for their Saison. 4.5

Ser - Sitting at the bar. All is well. Friendly, but maybe a bit more attention. The staff spend more time chatting with each other than focused on the customers. 4.0

Sel - Great selection. Stout, Saison, various types of hoppy beers, three different lagers, there Belgian styles, 4.5

FOOD - I order the brisket sandwich sandwich ( yep it’s so big they use the word twice ). Yummy. Filling. The coleslaw on the sandwich might be the best thing. 4.5

Never heard of them until I visited, the service was excellent, the food was good, and the beer selection was great, as was the quality of the beers. A worthy visit if you're in Little Rock.

Lost Forty is located in an industrial area a short walk from the Clinton Presidential Library. A nice walk through a street car stop, abandoned train tracks, and local businesses. There's a big logo on the wall, and once you walk inside, it's really nicely set up. The production side is on the left with a glass wall separating it from the patron side with tables. There were bunch of communal benches and a bar at the far end with a grill.

I liked how the interior was designed. The servers were very nice and prompt. The bartender that served me was cool. I had a flight of tasters and bratwurst. The brat was very good. The beers were solid but maybe not exceptional. Not yet. Lots of potential here.

Cool spot, enjoyed my visit very much!

Cool vibe in a near-downtown location. The food is very good with a great beer selection. The seating is large picnic tables so you'll be sharing. It's usually busy but the Sunday menu is great. One of the standards for Little Rock and a must visit.

Lost Forty is one of my favorite local brew pubs. I've been to a lot around the region, and LF feels like home every time I walk in the door. It's quaint with long farm house style tables. During busy times you may just sit down next to a stranger, and leave as new friends. The dining area offers a wide view window of the brew house and a look in to the daily operations. Food is locally sourced as much as possible. The beer is great. Large selection from American style ales, stouts, IPAs, and small batch brews. I have yet to be let down by a LF beer. Many beers are available for take home (even on Sunday's) in cans and growlers. Event nights regularly too. Check them out if you are in town. I don't think you will be let down.

Loved the relaxed open environment, some thought was put into this place. A few TVs to watch the game
or whatever

All beers were of good/great quality. The Rock Hound IPA, the Dopplebock & Barrel aged Love Honey Bock were great, as well as the Cowboy Coffee Stout I put in my howler

Service was attentive & prompt, not sure how well the guy knew his beer, but he was helpful enough

12 different beers on tap, to include several lagers, a brett beer, plus a Baltic Porter

Food menu looked good. I will try this if I ever come through again. Easily the best beer destination I have hit in Arkansas, so far

Arkansas might be a little behind when it comes to breweries--OK, WAY behind--but Lost Forty is doing their best to help out. I've been twice: once on a Monday after lunch, and once on a Saturday during the holidays. The Monday trip was pretty dead, but that's to be expected. The Saturday trip was hopping. Lots of people enjoying themselves, enjoying the good food, and best of all, enjoying the good beer. Quite a few brews on tap (~15, I think); you can get growlers filled; or you can buy their beer canned (no bottles). I highly recommend this cool place.
