Buffalo Butt brewed by Rahr and Sons Brewing - Fort Worth, Texas


Buffalo Butt Beer brewed by Rahr and Sons Brewing - Fort Worth, Texas

Legend has it that back in the 1840's, a group of cowboys hanging out at one of the many bars in Fort Worth's "Hell's Half Acre" would quench their thirst while telling tales of their buffalo hunting days. When one of the cowboys said a nice, cold beer was the only thing that could make him forget the often-viewed sight of a buffalo's butt, the local brewmaster laughed and vowed to create Buffalo Butt beer to commemorate the posterior of the prairie's most majestic beast. Today, Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. continues this fine tradition with our own recipe for Buffalo Butt beer - a rich, amber lager that doesn't require months on a dusty trail, gazing at a buffalo's hindquarters to be enjoyed. ABV: 4.5%. IBUs: 25. Hops: Magnum, Strisselspalt. Malts: 2 Row, Melanoidin, Cara Munich, Carafa Special II.

Rahr & Sons Brewing Company
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 here. And in another fortuitous twist for all of us, Fritzís wife, Erin, gave him the thumbs up when he announced that he would like to carry on the Rahr family tradition of brewing.

Fritz and Erin founded Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. in the fall of 2004. In five years, the brewery has more than doubled its brewing capacity - from 2,000 barrels per year to over 5,000 barrels per year and has won fifteen nationally-recognized awards, including a Bronze Medal at the 2008 World Beer Cup for Bucking Bock and 2009 National Grand Champion from the United States Beer Tasting Championships 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.
