Rest easy, Saddlebock Brewery & Restaurant fans, the Springdale pub is still open for business, just under new ownership.
Founder Steve Rehbock sold the brewery for $700,000 last month just as he was celebrating the 10-year anniversary of serving his first pint, he wrote in a social media post. Rehbock opened the brewery in 2012 with his then-wife, Carolyn, on Habberton Road in Springdale.
After the couple divorced in 2015, Steve Rehbock retained ownership of the brewery and Carolyn Rehbock of the property through her White River Specialty Leasing LLC; he bought the property from White River for $512,000 in 2018.
The new owner is Thomas Sarna, an oral surgeon in Fayetteville who purchased the 4,587-SF project on 2 acres through his 2025GA Properties LLC. Arvest Bank provided a loan of $560,000.
