Red Neck Wine Tour
Saturday, September 17, 2011
Planned by Josh & Kathryn Butts
From New Braunfels, we'll head north along the river for a slow and scenic drive. Then we'll pick up the pace a bit and head northwest towards Blanco along the west side of Canyon lake before turning northward towards Johnson City.
Lunch will be at the newly opened Pecan Street Brewing in Johnson City. (more info)
The menu is available on their website, and their specialties are burgers and brick-oven pizzas. We'll have our pick of the whole menu, and we'll pay a-la-carte at the restaurant.
After lunch we'll take a short drive (roughly 30 minutes) to Hye, TX.
Hye is the home of Garrison Brothers Distillery, "The Best Little Stillhouse in Texas", (more info) the first "legal" bourbon distillery in the state of Texas.
We'll arrive slightly before 2:00pm for a tour of the distillery (lasts about 45 minutes).
Those who are interested will have the opportunity to taste "white dog" (whiskey right off the still). For those with more refined palettes, we’ll also be able to have a sip of the finished product while enjoying the view from the barrel barn.
The tour and tasting fee at Garrison Brothers is $10 per car.
