    I had a chance to try Utopias this past Friday at the FW Saucer.

    If I had the means I would buy one...I'd be willing to split a bottle 6-8 ways if some fellow BA's want to make a tasting out of it. It's totally worth trying and much smoother than expected.

    Fern brought Utopias to the tasting back at the Addison saucer last year. If we put together a similar type tasting, I'll definitely put in for it. It's great stuff...

    We need to see if we can set up some tarrant county tastings. I hit up the opening of Rodeo Goat last night and they have a side room. It's a great place.

    /end hijack thread. Shop at Halls!

    This happen today?

    I'll ask Landon but I suspect since they have their liquor license they cannot allow carry in beer.

    As I mentioned in the growler fill in DFW thread. Brewed would be a perfect place...awesome food and a great patio.

    In the JK thread they said it leaves their warehouse this week. So maybe Friday or early next week. 200 cases, on par with Boxer's batch 2 in size if I remember correctly so a lot of stores will get this and hopefully many will 2-3 cases

    Turned out they screwed up. I got the last pint before they changed the price back to normal. It was good.

    Hutch is the man for pointing it out.

    I wish that place had more rare tappings..the obligatory Friday Rahr cask is what I call rare anymore

    Agree on the rare stuff.

    The place has a weird vibe lately. A lot of employee unrest/disatisfaction.

    Between all the moving its expected. I'm good friends with everyone there so hopefully it all shakes out well.

    Unfortunately Fort Worth hasn't stepped beyond Rahr...or from a different perspective Rahr hasn't evolved into a true craft brewery. I give them credit for the barleywine and the Black IPA. Both good brews and a major step into a new world for them

    mattisloco Savant (455) Texas Feb 13, 2007

    Were you able to go to their 8th Anniversary tour? Rahr floored me with their 1 off kegs that day. The Brett, Barleywine and Peppercorn Wit were great.

    H0rnedFr0gs Savant (430) Texas Mar 12, 2012

    Missed it. Was there this past weekend though..Devil Pug was ok (Ugly Pug with peppers) and their blonde had tea or something like that.

    Don't get me wrong, Rahr is good...it's just not on par with the amazing stuff coming out of TX right now
     
  22. Picked up JK Gotland, NB Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout, Commercial Suicide and Left Hand Fade to Black IV last week at Total Wine in FW. The had Buddha's Brew limited at the front but I passed.
     
  23. Rahr is a true craft brewery....end rant.

    Lakewoods tapping their BIPA, Hoptrap, with coriander and earl grey tea at Brewed.

    Pretty awesome stuff...the tea matches the yeast great.

    Fair enough. I think they aim for a BMC drinker with a quality product and they succeed very well. I also think they miss the mark for the typical user on this website.

    I visit them frequently and drink their beer at bars, but excluding BBWW their beer on a shelf doesn't even stir the needle. I also think they can evolve to serve my tastes but they are behind the curve in a crowded market.
     
  26. Definitely needs to be discussed over a beer, not on interwebs.

    I spoke with some of the guys at Brewed and they sounded at least interested in the idea of a bottle share...they really have an awesome place and a patio. Between them and Live Oak, which Brewed's patio back up to, I think it would be worth the drive over for Dallas folks.

    Any place in dallas that can do this well? Would the guys at DEBC allow a share on their patio for their Thursday night tour?

    I had Temptress on Nitro there last night with 2 shots of espresso added. Pretty awesome mix. They also had Guadalupe on draft...the Honey Ale was really crisp and refreshing

    I stand by Fern's opinion on Rahr. Have you been there on a Wednesday night? That's the time to go if you feel like geeking out and you should see for yourself. They tap some pretty ridiculous one-offs that don't go outside the doors of the brewery.

They also got in Affligem Noel and Jewbelation Sweet 16 sitting on the shelves.
