Quality. Authenticity. Garrison Brothers. These Texas trailblazers were the first distillery outside of Kentucky to produce authentic, handmade bourbon whiskey. The Garrison Brothers’ dinner has become a WTF tradition and is one of Chef Chad’s favorite events because he cooks in front of the guests under the stars (weather permitting). Charlie Garrison will join us again this year to walk us through each expression and how the intense Texas climate, pure Hill Country rainwater, sweet mash bill, and of course the passionate individuals at the distillery created a bourbon unmatched in quality and craftsmanship. You can hang your hat on that!

~All sales are final and this outdoor event will take place rain or shine~

Charlie Garrison
Whiskey Peddler

Whiskey Peddler Charlie spent the first 20 years of his career in the wireless communications industry. As his career grew, his love for entrepreneurialism developed and he found himself working for smaller companies in bigger roles. In his final position in telecom he was running the sales and marketing for a wireless carrier that had networks across the country.

As his children got a little older, he decided to make a career leap and open a business in his own community. That decision led to 10+ years in the restaurant industry working alongside his wife and kids at their restaurants.

When Charlie’s brother opened the first legal whiskey distillery in his home state of Texas, the writing was on the wall. He did double-duty with his restaurants and the distillery for several years and finally jumped in full time in 2013. Since 2013 Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey has expanded from Texas to 35 states and is just getting warmed up.

Charlie has been married to his wife Julie for 25 years and has two children that are smarter, kinder and better looking than he is.

“Growing up our father always told my brother and I that we had better learn to work for ourselves because no one else would ever put up with us. Thank God he was right.” – Charlie Garrison
