Core Public House Now Brewing at XNA

Paradies Lagardère and Arkansas brewer Core Brewing and Distilling Co. have teamed up to open Core Public House at Northwest Arkansas Regional (XNA).

The new concept opened in Concourse A on Feb. 25. It is a full-service restaurant with 10 taps pouring craft beers.

“We’re excited to partner with Core Brewing & Distilling Co. to open a Core Public House in Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport,” says Bill Casey, senior vice president of food and beverage for Paradies Lagardère. “We added Core’s Hilltop IPA to our selection of beers nearly three years ago, and it quickly became our best seller, so it was natural for us to expand our relationship with Core. Our guests have been clear that high-quality, locally crafted beer is what they are looking for, so we’re more than happy to give them exactly that.”

This is the first airport location for the concept, which has six street locations and two more opening soon.

“Our newest food and beverage option, Core Public House, gives our travelers a true taste of Northwest Arkansas upon arrival at our airport,” says Mike Johnson, chairman of the board of directors for XNA. “The airport team is always looking for ways to improve the customer experience. This has been accomplished in large part by the commitment of our partner Paradies Lagardère.”
