Rahr & Sons to begin Oklahoma distribution

Fort Worth, Texas, beermaker Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. has announced it will begin distribution in Oklahoma starting March 1.

The move represents yet another entry into the consistently more crowded Oklahoma craft beer landscape.

Rahr & Sons will begin with several of its mainline beers, including Rahr's Blonde, a Munich-style Helles lager; Ugly Pug, a Schwarzbier black lager; Stormcloud, an English-style IPA; Buffalo Butt, an American amber; and Iron Thistle, a seasonal strong Scotch-style ale.

Additional beers will be released seasonally throughout the year, according to the company.

To celebrate the Oklahoma launch, the brewery has scheduled a series of parties and pint nights -- featuring a commemorative pint glass -- at locations in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Edmond.

Festivities will begin from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 29 with grand launch party at Fassler Hall-OKC. A special menu will feature a selection of Rahr beers paired with Fassler dishes.

Other parties/pint nights are:

Tuesday, March 1:
-5:30 p.m. at Ranch Acres in Tulsa
-7 p.m. at The Patriarch
-7 p.m. at The Pint in Tulsa

Wednesday, March 2:
-5:30 p.m. at Skinny Slims-OKC
-5:30 p.m. at Skinny Slims-Edmond
-6 p.m. at Oak & Ore
-6 p.m. at Fassler Hall-OKC

Thursday, March 3:
-5:30 p.m. at R Bar in Tulsa
-7 p.m. at TapWerks

Plans call for the German-influenced Rahr & Sons -- founded more than 10 years ago by Fritz Rahr -- to be distributed in both bars and liquor stores throughout Oklahoma.

According to the company, Rahr and his team "look forward to serving their neighbors up north."
