I can barely believe it myself but I got a job as a brewing assistant at Rahr and Sons brewery in Fort Worth Texas!



Hooray for free home-brew ingredients.

Currently they are still only local distribution, but we've just expanded our capacity so distribution will likely expand as well.

Congratulations! Tell Wedge that Doak says "hi." I just might be up to see y'all at Bluebonnet (but it doesn't look too good right now)

Congrats! That is awesome! If I ever get back down to Ft. Worth, I plan to stop in there. I used to live in Benbrook, but that was 27 years ago. Last time I was in Ft. Worth was 1991!

Gotta stop at Massey's for CFS and Benito's on Magnolia for Mexican.

Sweet! Congrats on the job. You realize that now you're going to have to give us regular updates on how cool it is to work in a brewery, right?

RIGHT?!?!

I'm not sure but I'll see what I can do. I haven't even worked my first day yet so I don't really know what they have avalible.

As for TCU I'm not sure there either.
