Rahr & Sons Brewing Brings Back Bucking Bock, Now In Cans
(Fort Worth, Texas) — This month, Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. is launching its seasonal Bucking Bock for the first time ever in cans. This fan favorite beer hasn’t been available in the general market since 2013.
Bucking Bock, which is a German spring bock, was offered as a bottled beer in previous years; the Bucking Bock cans will begin hitting store shelves the week of March 30. This mildly hopped beer has a smooth, malty taste with a hint of sweetness that makes it perfect for spring.
“Cans are better for outdoor environments where glass bottles might not be allowed,” said Rahr & Sons owner Fritz Rahr. “We wanted to put Bucking Bock in cans so our fans could drink a seasonal craft beer while enjoying warmer weather and springtime activities, like barbecuing.“
Appropriately, April marks the start of Rahr-B-Q season in Texas. To celebrate, local retailers will provide in-store shopping lists with all the necessities for the ultimate backyard BBQ and a Rahr-B-Q sauce recipe made with Texas Red, an American amber beer.
This Saturday, March 21, Rahr & Sons will kick off the spring season with a tasting event at the brewery from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Attendees will receive an exclusive Rahr-B-Q pint glass, and Bucking Bock will be on tap. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door.
