April 1st is always a tough day for the internet. Especially in beer. Start placing your bets on fake stories on brewery sell-outs, beers brewed with even more insane ingredients, compared to what craft beer already uses. Think concoctions like a blonde imperial stout. Oh wait, Stone Brewing Co. really did it.
Fort Worth, Texas based brewery Rahr & Sons posted to their Facebook page today that their last tour was on April 1st and the brewery would close. Seems like fans took it seriously for a minute, until the realization came that it was and April Fool’s joke. On March 27th.
Rahr & Sons isn’t closing. And that’s great. Texas needs craft beer. Deep breaths Texans. Deep breaths.
