Rahr & Sons Rain Dance

On Saturday, January 21, the fine folks at Rahr & Sons Brewing Company in Fort Worth, Texas, held a rain ceremony.

Shortly after 2 p.m., about 200 people stood outside with a beer in one hand and an instrument (coffee cans, bean pots and tambourines) in the other. For a solid 10 minutes, the crowd banged on things, shook rains sticks, whooped and whistled.

Erin Rahr, who runs the Fort Worth brew company with her husband, Fritz, beat a Christmas cookie tin and surveyed the crowd.

“It’s looking pretty good,” she said of the chance for rain.

Jeff Lynch, 50, a glove maker from Keller who was visiting the brewery for the first time, had no worries as he shook his tambourine.

“I think it’s going to work,” he said matter-of-factly.

According to the Accuweather website it was raining on Sunday.
