Located in the Uptown District, JBGB (JJ’s Beer Garden and Brewery) has become one of the most popular establishments in Fayetteville, as it’s offers four things locals and guests love: food, beer, games and music.

In fact, it’s outdoor gaming area includes shuffle board, baggo, ping pong, bocce ball, sand volleyball and a wading pool, making it a virtual playground for adults. Considering JBGB is also a craft brewery, it’s no wonder people love going there — and staying for a fun night!

The 12,000-square-foot building includes a homestyle Southern restaurant, serving up traditional dishes with a twist, like pizza with pulled pork and bacon or burgers topped with jalapenos and pineapple. The sliders and tacos are a local favorite, and the Tin Can Nachos with black beans, ground beef, pico de gallo and three types of cheeses are hard to beat.

Glass windows line the interior of the restaurant, inviting guests to watch JJ’s Brewery in action. Outside there’s an Airstream Bar, and JJ’s Brew and Que Food Truck for even more country-fried favorites like bacon-and-beer salted sweet potato fries and smoked pork belly.

Best of all, on Thursday nights from Memorial Day through Labor Day, JBGB hosts a Summer Concert Series at no cost to the public. Yes, concerts for FREE. This summer series presents regional and national music, with doors opening at 3 p.m.
