This Valentine’s Day, you are in for a treat. Garrison Brothers Distillery and our fellow Texas craft distillers are throwing a party in Austin that you will NOT want to miss. It’s called Texas On The Rocks and it will be held at the Austin Music Hall from 6 to midnight.
The evening starts at 6 with a VIP Craft Cocktail Throwdown. We’ve invited some of Texas’ best bartenders to come make a drink. But not just any drink. We’re searching for the next MARGARITA. A cocktail so ubiquitous that it becomes synonymous with the great state of Texas.
At 7:30, the doors open to the general public for the largest distilled spirits sampling event in Texas history. More than 40 craft distilleries from all over the country, and a few craft beer and wine makers, will be serving you their libations in small samples and in innovative cocktails.
As you browse the aisles with your spouse learning about this country’s exciting craft distilleries, the main stage at the Austin Music Hall will explode with a wide range of eclectic Austin-style entertainers. The University of Texas Pom Squad, professional two-step dance teams, trick ropers, cowboy poets, the Texas Aggie Wranglers are all expected to take to the stage against a back-drop of larger than life Texas imagery and dreams.
There will be a Cinco Five Star Vodka-laden ice sculpture, a Yellow Rose Whiskey Bar, a Dulce Vida Margarita Bar, Garrison Brothers Straight Bourbon tastings, and delicious, delectible grab-and-go food options. You can also taste distilled spirits from Rebecca Creek Distillery, Balcones Distillery, Titos, Dulce Vida Spirits, Yellow Rose Distilling, Revolution Spirits, Iron Root Republic, Bone Spirits, Hill Country Distillers, Azar Distilling, Whitmeyers Distilling, San Luis Spirits, Tequila 512 and Deep Eddy Vodka, plus dozens more.
From 10:30 til midnight, the gang from Tito’s Vodka will be making Tito’s Breakfast Tacos and blood marys in the VIP Lounge.
This sensational event is underwritten by our good friends and partners Republic National Distributing Company and Glazers Family of Companies. Tickets have just gone on sale at www.texasontherocks.org. They are $80 per person now and $60 more if you want to attend the pre- and post-party VIP events. But prices go up January 14. So make a reservation now.
The entire Garrison Brothers Team will be there for Texas On The Rocks. We hope we’ll see you there too.
