Without much fanfare, Fort Worth has quietly established a reputation for being the home of some acclaimed distilled spirits and brewed beer makers.  Is there now a Brewery District and yet another reason for greater tourism?

Out of 10 breweries on the Fort Worth Ale Trail, 5 are in the Near Southside.  And three are within walking (or at least short bicycle ride) of each other:  Rahr, Collective and HopFusion.

 

I bought my first retail 6-pack of HopFusion Feisty Blonde this week.

Not beer, but Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co. is not far from the first three. Current home of the TX blend and Burbon.

Strange... Wild Acre is not listed on the map, but 3 other breweries that are not in FW are. Also of note, the Trinity River Distillery is next to Wild Acre as well. So add another to the list.

Shouldn't we include the 800 Pounds Gorilla - Miller Coors?; after all, it did put the City on the map of America's Beer Towns.

 

The tour could include the craft breweries in the Near Southside, ok Far Southside; and make a final stop at the "JerryWorld" of beer production. :swg:

The Ale Trail is not really comprehensive, it's possible certain breweries did not opt in to the program.

No, they're just not on the map.  They're listed among the breweries.

Deep Ellum Brewery Co. coming to Fort Worth to battle (on a smaller scale with a tap room) with our own Rahr & Sons?  And near our own "Deep Ellum" imitator West Seventh alias Crockett Row?  Hmph!  Say it ain't so!

They should do okay there without impinging on the Brewery District on the Near Southside.

Rahr has already had plenty of competition for awhile now. I doubt this has much of an effect on them.

Of the Fort Worth breweries, Rahr would be the least affected.  Most of their product is sold retail.  It would potentially have a bigger effect on Chimera or Collective Brewing Project or HopFusion who sell most or all of their beer in the taproom.  But being in Linwood I don't think it's close enough to really affect them.
