Food, Tunes And Vibes

December 1, 2021

Good Times Are Waiting For You At Second Rodeo Brewing.

If you’re tired of leftovers, need a break from the Christmas music or want to try something out of the box, it’s time to scoot on over to Second Rodeo Brewing in Fort Worth.

Spearheaded by Brain Storm Shelter owner Jason Boso, who is responsible for concepts like Twisted Root Burger Co. and Truck Yard, Second Rodeo Brewing combines food, music and brews for a good old time out in the stockyards.

“Our vibe is your backyard that you never had,” Jason says.

Opening in September with around 18,000 square feet of space, Second Rodeo Brewing has everything a diner could ask for. The beer hall shines as its star attraction, with 10 housemade beers dedicated to Second Rodeo Brewing’s name. The Queen Blonde is brewed with pale malt, cascade and Saaze hops, while the Woodruff Berliner Weiss is made with the German herb Woodruff, bringing authentic German flavors with every sip.

For those that love the taste of Truly, Second Rodeo Brewing’s hibiscus seltzer is made with pure water, 100% fermentable sugar and 100% organic Hibiscus leaves, giving it a delicious red color and fruity and floral tones.

Second Rodeo Brewing also serves up a host of craft cocktails, each made to perfection. The Royal Punch is mixed with Western Son Watermelon vodka, rum and fruit juices, while the Hurricane features white and dark rum, passion fruit, pineapple, orange juice and lime. Of course, you can never go wrong with a classic margarita mixed with fresh lime juice.

After enjoying a drink or two, it’s time to head down to one of Second Rodeo Brewing’s patios, which are dog-friendly and aim to provide a relaxed atmosphere.

The creekside patio, like its name implies, is located next to a creek on the property, while a large patio accommodates a live music stage and has comfy seating, adding to the backyard vibes.

Inspired by outlaw country, Western swing and Texas blues, Second Rodeo Brewing offers live music featuring local artists playing around the clock — free to enjoy for everyone who is having a good time.

“I think one of the most unique things is that we are in the stockyards, so there is a lot of that personality and we have that style of music every day, all day,” Jason says.

When you’re done listening to live music, it’s time to indulge in some delicious food. In true backyard fashion, diners are invited to get up and order from one of two food windows, each providing a different type of grub.

The wings window serves top-notch chicken wings with unique flavor combinations that come with a side of fries. Classic wings lovers can go for the Buffalo wings with a side of ranch or bleu cheese dressing or the black garlic BBQ wings, which feature sweet garlic Texas barbecue sauce.

But Second Rodeo Brewing delivers even more flavors for diners who feel more adventurous. The PB&J wings combine peanut butter with bacon and jalapeno, while the Chicken N’ Waffles wings are covered in maple bacon jam glaze and waffle crumbs.

The crazy wing adventure continues with the Texas cherry cola wings, which come with a Texas cherry cola glaze and pop rocks. The Lime In The Coconut wings are served with lime and coconut glaze and graham cracker salt, and the Mexican Holy Mole wings are topped with mole sauce, chili spice and chocolate powder.

The second of Second Rodeo Brewing’s food windows serves delicious cheesesteaks and nachos. Named after Jason’s other concept, the Truck Yard’s Famous Philly Cheesesteak gives diners the option to choose from three different meats and cheeses and four different veggie options, providing a cheesesteak specially tailored to one’s tastes. Meanwhile, the Truck Yard Nachos leave diners satiated with either ribeye steak or chicken topped with bell peppers, onions, chipotle-corn salsa and melted nacho cheese.

With bold flavors and out-of-the-box combinations, Second Rodeo Brewing ensures diners won’t leave hungry. Whether you come to wind down in a relaxed atmosphere or try its unique cuisine right off the griddle, Second Rodeo Brewing is the place to be.

“I want [customers] to feel like they just ran into some old friends that they hadn’t seen in a while,” Jason says. “I just want them to feel comfortable and happy with a smile and go home with a little more high spirits than when they got here.” SOURCE.
