Fort Worth's Lunch & Moonshine Trip

Glen Rose & Tolar
Texas

Nineteen folks in eleven cars joined us for a great drive, a fine lunch, and whiskey and moonshine-tasting. 

Our lunch destination was the Riverhouse Grill in Glen Rose.  Elegant but casual, the restaurant occupies a renovated historic home built in the early 1900s. We made our selections from a Prix Fixe menu prepared especially for us.  It was a unique luncheon experience in small-town Texas.

After lunch, we made our way to the Sledge Distillery in Tolar for whiskey and moonshine tasting.   This was an optional activity but everyone attended.  This tiny distillery creates whiskey and moonshine from the original recipes found in the war chest of the owner's father, who made moonshine for his fellow soldiers while stationed in the South Pacific during the Second World War.
