Hogshead Tours Fires up the Van

- FAYETTEVILLE--Craft beer fans in Northwest Arkansas have a new way to get around. University of Arkansas grads Lora and Dustin Murphy founded Hogshead Tours to give an exciting new way to learn about Arkansas craft beer.

A tour of all your favorite breweries. Free beer tasting at each stop. What's different about this tour? They use a 1970 Volkswagen Van.

Founders Dustin and Lora Murphy say the bus was an easy choice.

"Given the charm that Northwest Arkansas has to offer, we wanted something that aligned well with that, and so we chose a Volkswagen van." Murphy said.

The two came up with the idea while on vacation, enjoying a guided tour. They figured they could bring that same experience to Northwest Arkansas.
"We want to provide an experience for people where they learn something, there's an educational component. So we want to give that to people and just, have fun." Murphy said."

The company takes its opening tour Saturday, and from there they aren't quite sure what to expect.

"We really don't know what's going to happen, and that's kind of the excitement of it all." Murphy said.

"We're gonna get feedback from our customers, and we're gonna evolve along with them and we definitely wanna provide an experience that the people around here enjoy." Murphy continued.

For 70 dollars a ticket, you and a group of friends can ride in the van. The tour includes a trip to 3 of your favorite breweries, a flight of beer at each stop, and a lot of great information about Arkansas beer.

Reservations can be made at their website.
