Rahr & Sons Brewing Co., which started the North Texas craft brewing movement more than decade ago, will mark its 11th anniversary in October. Owners Fritz and Erin Rahr and the Rahr & Sons team will celebrate the occasion by releasing a new beer and hosting events at the brewery.
Rahr & Sons’ 11th anniversary beer, a Russian Imperial Stout with Toasted Coconut, will be released the week of Oct. 26. Touted as the king of all stouts, the beer has rich chocolate and caramelized malt flavors with a hint of toasted coconut. It will be available as a 22-ounce bottle and on tap around Dallas-Fort Worth.
The beer will debut on tap at the brewery’s 11th anniversary events, including a VIP beer tasting on Friday with more than 40 different brews. Attendees will receive a commemorative pint glass, and enjoy live music from High School Caesar, as well as food trucks with meals available for purchase.
On Saturday, the brewery will host an extended tasting. Attendees will receive a commemorative glass to sample a selection of beers, including an oak barrel of 2011 Bourbon Barrel Aged Winter Warmer and a firkin of Angry Goat aged on chocolate covered banana chips. They also will enjoy live music and food trucks, Lee’s Grilled Cheese and 3 Parrots, with meals available for purchase.
