Good Bourbon for a Good Cause, a 501c3 nonprofit public charity formed by the Garrison family and the staff at Garrison Brothers Distillery, the first legal bourbon distillery in Texas, is partnering with Chef Chris ‘Arbukle’ Authier, chef at Chase’s Place Cocktails + Kitchen in Fredericksburg, Texas, to raise money for the eventual creation of a scenic hike and bike trail along Highway 290 between Johnson City and Fredericksburg. The Boot Ranch Hall Foundation, which awards outstanding Hill Country area students educational scholarship opportunities, is also a co-beneficiary.
The Locals Only (“No City Folks Allowed”) bourbon pairing dinner will be held Friday, February 17 at Barrel Barn Uno at Garrison Brothers Distillery from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.. Tables for eight are $1,000 and individual tickets are $200 each. Chef Arbuckle’s mouth-watering menu for the evening is sure to please with five decadent courses expertly paired with the Garrison Brothers’ portfolio of whiskey by Chase Guthrie and Travis King.

This dinner will help raise funds in part for the new proposed trail for residents of Blanco and Gillespie County and guests who visit this special area. Many local land business owners have been discussing the building of a hike, bike and horse trail that would run from Johnson City to Fredericksburg. We believe such an undertaking could significantly improve the region’s economy.
Additionally, it will help improve safety of area visitors and residents alike. The some of the funds raised from this dinner will be used to hire a land planning architectural design firm to create drawings and sketches of what the trail might look like. Additionally, they will be used to hire an outside economic development firm to conduct an economic impact study.
