Went on a crowded Saturday; wrote down 10 beers to try and none were available...big disappointment. Great to see a big-time brewery but it felt like one too and not in a good way. Plenty of staff but didn't interact much; plenty of open taps, but no special beers available. Hope Rahr looks to change it up; maybe need to try them during an open weeknight.

I expected this brewery to be "cool". When I parked in downtown Fort Worth across from a broken down/abandoned house it dawned on me that this would be just another inner city brewery.

I enjoy the open area in the back of the brewery for outdoor talking and drinking and the oak barrels added a nice, almost country flair to a rather industrial warehouse. I was disappointed there wasn't much of a tour or talking session about all the different beers.

However, there was live music! There was a nice little indoor warehouse venue. I'm not into that kind of thing as much. I'd rather take a tour and talk about the beers but overall it was a nice touch to the warehouse.

Overall a mediocre brewery. Definitely a place for mass production.

As far as the beers go I REALLY enjoyed them.

The only extremely negative criticism I have was that one of the serving booths was serving old/stale beer. I went to another booth to double check and can safely say that Rahr's reputation was saved. Gotta watch out for those bad batches!

It's the brewery, and you've got a pretty typical brewery experience. They're open one day a week--you buy a glass, and you get 3 "free" beers for your glass. They're over in the sleepy old industrial part of FW, pretty easy to find, not far from where 30 and 820 intersect. It's one big sheet-metal warehouse, and it can be unpleasant in the summer. Not many places to sit, and they get really crowded, fast these days. Pick a dreary, rainy day when no one wants to get out and you might enjoy some space. Unless it's changed recently, there are too few restrooms and not many places to sit. Most of my experience was going there their very early years, when fewer people knew about it. They have some nice food & music events occasionally, but these days it's gonna draw too many people to make it really worthwhile.
