Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. to release two seasonal favorite beers
January 27, 2016 — Fort Worth, Texas — Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. is proud to release two of its seasonal favorite beers this month. Both brews — Snowmageddon, an Imperial Oatmeal Stout, and Iron Thistle, a Strong Scotch-Style Ale — have won multiple national and international awards in recent years.
Snowmageddon will be released in stores and on tap around Dallas-Fort Worth. The beer is an annual tribute to Rahr & Sons’ fellow craft beer lovers who supported the brewery during the rebuilding process after snow and ice collapsed part of the roof in early 2010.
A continual fan favorite, Snowmageddon is a rich, bold beer that has semi-sweet chocolate flavors with a creamy body and semi-dry finish. It won gold medals in both the 2015 Beverage Tasting Institute and the 2014 World Beer Championships. Last year, it was named one of the 10 best “snow” beers by Huffington Post. Rahr & Sons will also release a limited amount of Snowmageddon aged in bourbon barrels in March.
Iron Thistle will be in stores and on tap around Dallas-Fort Worth. As Rahr & Sons’ first National Grand Champion at the United States Beer Tasting Championship in 2009, Iron Thistle has a bold taste dominated by a smooth, sweet maltiness and caramel flavors. It also won gold medals in the San Diego International Beer Competition and Beverage Tasting Institute in 2015, as well as a silver medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival.
