290 Update: Garrison Bros. Whiskey Tour

IMAG0058

by Andrew Chalk

Going down to the Hill Country? Visiting Fredericksburg, Johnson City or Blanco? Make a spirited trip to Garrison Brothers Distillery in Hye (along the 290 Wine Trail) where they make Texas Bourbon. I delayed a visit until last month. I can tell you, I should have gone earlier. The whole visitor experience at Garrison is superb. Not just the quality of the finished product, although that is crucial, but also all the organisational aspects of the tour. In fact, wine makers could use the Garrison tour as a template of how to do winery tours.

The experience starts on Garrison’s web site, where you reserve your $10 (per person) tour. Tours take place at set times two hours apart Wednesdays through Sundays. The site is straightforward and reliable. In fact, I upped my reservation from two people, to four, and then, a few days later, to six as more friends heard that we were doing it. Each time, the site found my earlier reservation and incremented the number of people, charging me only the additional cost. We kept one reservation number throughout. One thing to bear in mind, no refunds for cancellations.   Continue reading

wine1by Andrew Chalk

You have toured Napa’s famed Highway 29, right? The wine trail where it takes 45 minutes to cross the road in the summer (such is the traffic)? Well, an attraction billing itself as the “#2 Wine Destination in America” is taking shape just south of Dallas. It is the “290 wine trail” or “Wine Road 290”.

The term “290 wine trail” is my own. The name refers to the stretch of U.S. 290 between Fredericksburg and Johnson City.

The term “Wine Road 290” is copyrighted and owned by a corporation with the following details:   Continue reading

Buzz Bike Boozing Around Dallas

buzz bikeby Steven Doyle

In the Netherlands it is called Het Fietscafe, but in Dallas you can just call it Buzz Bike. You will soon be seeing this mobile pub on wheels rolling about town, especially if you should be in the Uptown, Downtown, Arts District or anywhere near Victory Plaza – all approved by the City of Dallas.

Best friends Maribel and Gloria were on a trip to Houston, when all of a sudden they spotted the bike on the street and then, it just hit them. “We immediately looked at each other and without saying a word, we both instantly knew it’d be our next adventure… we would bring it to Dallas!” says Maribel. “By the time we arrived to dinner, we already had the name “The Buzz Bike.”    Continue reading
