THE 2022 HeatWave Homebrewing Competition & Wiener Dog Races

20 Homebrewers. 50 Beers. Wiener dog races, live music, and free burgers. The HeatWave NWA Brewing Competition is the place to be on August 20th!

On Saturday, August 20th, Core of Arkansas is partnering with FLOPS Homebrew Club and Ozark Zymurgists to host NWA's newest homebrew competition and festival. The festival will be held at the Core Brewery Taproom from 5-8 PM, with more than 20 homebrewers and 50 beers to try! Online tickets are $35, and tickets at the door will be $40, so grab your ticket before it's too late! Proceeds from the festival will be donated to the Animal Shelter and Adoption Center in Springdale, AR. Continue below for more info.

The Competition

Homebrewers can bring anything in the “Beverage Family,” which includes beer, cider, and hard seltzer. This does not include wine or distilled spirits. With as many beers and homebrewers as expected to compete in this year's competition, we have decided to have several different awards within the event:

  • 1st Place Overall - $100 & Official HeatWave Trophy
  • 2nd Place Overall - $50 & Gift Card
  • 3rd Place Overall - $25 & Gift Card

Wiener Dog Races

Here at Core, we are beer-friendly, family-friendly, and most of all... Dog-Friendly. That's why during the homebrew competition we will also be hosting we will also host a series of wiener dog races during the homebrew competition to keep the masses entertained! All dogs are welcome at our brewery, however, only dachshunds will be allowed to enter the races. We ask that you keep all dogs on a leash until the race begins. Winners of each heat will receive a Core gift card!

The Venue

Included with your ticket price, each attendee will receive a burger basket (Burger, chips, and drink) from the famous Farmer Joe! Farmer Joe's cattle are fed leftover spent Core grain after a brew day, so each burger is Core grain-fed and delicious!

There will also be live music jamming throughout the festival! Nothing better than brews and tunes. Band TBD!


Are children allowed? Yes! Bring the kiddos, bring the dogs, bring the whole family!

Are tickets refundable? Yes, but only on a case-by-case basis. You can also resell your tickets. The name of the attendee does not need to match the one on the tickets.

Are pets allowed? Absolutely! We are dog-friendly. AS LONG AS THEIR KEPT ON A LEASH AND BEHAVE PROPERLY.

Is the event rain or shine? Of course! We're not scared of a little rain.

Where can I park? Parking is available next door at the Democrat-Gazette Printing Center. There will be signs and volunteer helpers directing VIP and general admission parking areas. See below!
