The story of Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. really starts when Fritz Rahr graduated from Texas Christian University. Fortunately for beer lovers in North Texas, Fritz not only fell in love with Fort Worth, but also fell in love with his future wife, Erin. Fortunately for us all, Erin gave Fritz the green light when he announced that he would like to carry on the Rahr family brewing tradition and open the Rahr & Sons Brewing Company right here in Fort Worth, Texas.
Fritz and Erin Rahr founded Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. in the fall of 2004. In nine years, Rahr has exponentially grown its brewing capacity from 2,000 barrels a year to 20,000 barrels a year. The brewery has won over 50 nationally-recognized awards, including a Silver Medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, a Bronze Medal at the 2008 World Beer Cup for Bucking Bock, and was the 2009 National Grand Champion at the United States Beer Tasting Championship for Iron Thistle.
The Rahr family looks forward to more growth and even more awards for the brewery, but Fritz and Erin are most excited about continuing to brew great tasting beers that can be found throughout Texas and continuing to serve these great beers directly to you at a Wednesday or Saturday Tour & Tasting! Someday their sons will be brewing and serving up some of these award-winning, great tasting beers too...as long as you keep drinking them.
