What’s Brewing in Cowtown
Howdy Friends, I’m taking a bit of a departure today from my usual topic of Texas history so that I can talk about my other passion, beer. More specifically, Rahr & Sons Brewery, a Fort Worth favorite since 2004, who in a short time have developed quite a following. Their beers are now available in most major grocery stores in Texas, but like most beers, it’s best when enjoyed straight from the tap. In the North Texas area, most restaurants with a good selection of craft beers, will have at least one Rahr beer on tap, and the number of establishments serving Rahr is growing every day.
My personal favorite is the Texas Red, but to be honest I haven’t tasted a bad one yet, and I’ve tried them all. I even like their IPA and I’m not usually an Indian Pale Ale kind of guy, but no matter which beer you try, you’ll understand why Rahr & Sons is already a Texas tradition.
For a unique and fun experience go to one of their twice weekly tour and tastings. These are on Wednesdays from 5:00pm-7:30pm, and Saturday from 1:00pm-3:00pm. For $10.00 you get a decorative pint glass, three pints of beer, and a brewery tour. If you’re like me, and prefer to have a little elbow room, then I suggest you go on Wednesday evening, when the crowds are a bit lighter. Regardless of which day you choose, you’ll have a great time and enjoy some of the best beer in Texas.
