Beer and Live Music Wonderland is Opening in Fort Worth’s Mule Alley — Your Sneak Peek at Second Rodeo

September 8, 2021

Jason Boso Makes Sure His New Place is Worth the Wait?

The long-awaited Second Rodeo Brewing is getting saddled up, and will be ready to ride when it opens to the public next Thursday, September 16. The 14,000 square foot multi-purpose bar wonderland will instantly become one of the largest tenants in Fort Worth Stockyards’ Mule Alley, which is located at 122 E. Exchange Street.

PaperCity Fort Worth gives you a sneak peek inside the laid-back brew pub and country music venue.

The indoor/outdoor destination, is brought to Fort Worth by Jason Boso, owner of Truck Yard franchise. It will have that outlaw attitude where even country’s infamous bad boys Willie, Hank and Johnny might even consider cracking open a cold one. Second Rodeo Brewing is centered around the in-house brewery with a rotation of beers led by Brew Boss Dennis Wehrmann.

“We made it a goal to make great beer without the pretentious craft attitude,” Wehrmann says. “The Second Rodeo lineup boasts a flavor profile of truly Texas mainstays, with room for fun rotational flavors, all served straight from the barrel onsite.”

As far as brewing beer in-house goes, this is not their first rodeo. Boso’s Brainstorm Shelter also owns By the Horns Brewing in Mansfield.

“The beer is cold, food is great, live music at all hours and tons of patio space ― it’s everything that creates a perfect day in Texas,” Boso says in a statement. “We’re pumped to have a spot at the Stockyards ― and share a place for families and folks of all ages to enjoy the roots of this historic area. We’re celebrating Texas. The way Hank would’ve done it.’
