In 2019, Al and Kelly Beers began to think about opening a restaurant in Mountain Home, Arkansas. One key idea kept coming to the conversation: family values. The Beers’ wanted to create a local atmosphere where families could come and enjoy quality time with each other. Thus, Buncle’s Brick Oven & Brews was born.
What is a “Buncle” you might ask? Simply put, it is a brother-uncle. This term of endearment has been in the Beers’ household for the last 13 years, originally coined by Beers’ granddaughter, Bailey. Al and Kelly’s son, Cole, and Bailey have a five-month age difference. They have grown up as brother and sister, and even though Cole is Bailey’s uncle, he will forever be Bailey’s Buncle.
