Garrison Brothers Distillery is partnering with Truluck’s Seafood, Steak and Crab House locations in Austin and across Texas to host a series of bourbon dinners to benefit West Texas’ treasured Balmorhea State Park, featuring Garrison Brothers’ award-winning small-batch bourbon paired with chef-selected dishes.
Before closing indefinitely in May 2018, Balmorhea State Park and its iconic spring-fed pool brought joy to generations of residents and visitors alike for nearly 50 years, since it opened in 1935. After hearing about the park’s closure, Garrison Brothers and Truluck’s resolved to do something about it. After a highly successful series of fundraising pool parties called Balmorhea Blue, Garrison Brothers connected with Truluck’s to make an impact in the way that they both know best: a delicious, unique bourbon pairing dinner.
“My wife and I have been dining at Truluck’s for years, but now that I’ve met the owners and their talented management team and witnessed their dedication to philanthropy firsthand, I’m even more impressed,” said Dan Garrison, founder of Garrison Brothers Distillery. “Good bourbon, delicious seafood, and a worthwhile cause. It’s a great partnership.”
The bourbon dinners will take place at Truluck’s locations in Austin (Arboretum), Austin (Downtown), Dallas, Houston, Southlake, and The Woodlands. Each of the dinners will include an exclusive cocktail reception where patrons can enjoy a bourbon tasting while they meet the people behind Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Dan Garrison will be at the first three events.
