Looking for something fun to do with friends Saturday? Want to spend a fun afternoon with Dad? How about a fun event for a good cause? Come on out this Saturday to Fort Worth's own Rarh & Son's Brewery Tour and Tasting from 1:00 to 3:00! The brewery is a family event so families welcome! Get up close and personal with some gentle giants, get a cool GDR t- shirt and sip some tastey brew! For $10 you get an official Rarh Pint glass and three sampling tickets! A portion of the day's proceeds go to GDR!
What to expect
You’ll be asked for your ID – we card everyone. There is a $10 tour admission fee for anyone over 18. A tour of the brewery and a Rahr & Sons pint glass are included, and, as always, the beer samples are free (only guests 21 years or older get to taste the beer). A portion of the entrance fees are donated to our selected Charity of the Week.
Upon arrival, you will receive complimentary beer sampling tickets. From 1-2PM, three sampling tickets will be available. From 2-2:15PM, two will will be available. From 2:15-2:30PM, one ticket will be given. After 2:30PM, sampling tickets will not be handed out. So, be sure to get here in plenty of time to make the most of your visit. Remember, the taps open at 1PM!
Once inside the brewery you can expect to line up for a pint of beer. After that, feel free to visit the gift shop or find a spot to sit at one of the picnic tables. Smoking is permitted on the back dock (not inside the brewery).
Please note that the brewery is an open-air facility, which means no air conditioning. Please dress accordingly during summer months.
The guided tour typically starts at 2:30pm, near the place where you check-in (signs mark the way or you can just follow the crowd). If you’re lucky, the tour will be led by Fritz Rahr, Founder of Rahr & Sons (his family has a long history of brewing and he has some pretty good stories to tell). But don’t worry if one of our Assistant Brewers leads your tour – they’ve heard Fritz’s stories so many times they’re able to re-tell them with as much excitement and hand gestures as their fearless leader. And as an added bonus, they may have a story or two to share about Fritz that he would never share himself…
