Did you get buzzed?
Nope, it wasn't in my stomach long enough to be absorbed. We're talking like 20 to 30 seconds from drinking to vomit.
It’s a taxing question. One of Washington’s early problems as President was the Whisky Rebellion. Folks who were in the habit of sending their corn to market in a jar were suddenly required to pay a tax on it to pay off debt from the Revolutionary War.
I've partaken a number of times, have to say I'm just not a fan of the stuff. Or the people who feel compelled to make it with fruit flavors. I've had apple, cherry, raspberry shine. What the hell? Why dontcha put an umbrella in it while you're at it??
I like whiskey. And whisky.
And I like Bob Evans a lot more than Cracker Barrel. I don't think Bob Evans is gonna be serving hooch anytime soon though.
Just me but chicken fried steak is more of a beer meal then scotch or bourbon. And I don’t do wine.
Hell yeah!!! I will drink a beer or two with my breakfast!!!
Our grandparents are the biggest conservatives old school people ever born. They have never ever tasted a sip of alcohol and go there twice a week. I know if they start selling alcohol they will probably not go there.
As far as moonshine goes...... All of the mainstream sold over the counter stuff is not real moonshine. It is fruity and sugar water. I love going to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but that is not real moonshine. I will drink and one of our best friends owns one of the distilleries.
If you want the real moonshine it is illegal and you need to go over to Cocke County/Newport, TN. That is where the good stuff is!!!! $5-$10 per mason jar and you are good to go!
Good shine around here runs about $25 a quart.
Yep, and it is good the more expensive stuff!!! Been a coulle years since I bought and good shine. Might have to get some in the next couple weeks.....
I think they are trying to draw in more people after losing some customers. I doubt it will work, returning their food to a better quality would help them more than anything.
Except for their breakfast, I've never been a big fan of Cracker Barrel. Maybe I should give it another try.
I think the hashbrown casserole is more lethal than any alcoholic drink out there. I miss Cracker Barrel.
^^ Ditto. tom.
Last two times I was at Cracker Barrel thefood was not right, service sucked, could not get refill coffee. They seem to be having problems. No team work, managers are not proactive.
Think I am done, when you pay 12 bucks plus for breakfast & Ione cup of sour coffee, it should be great.
Living in TN, I might have to start eating at Cracker Barrel more.
And the illegal stuff will most likely kill you. Especially back in the 50's when they used an old automobile radiator for the worm. Remember radiators in those days were soldered together with lead solder. And even today, if the process isn't correct, the stuff can kill you.
I've drank some, but only from a guy I knew who had a still like one of the other posters showed, and he knew what he was doing.
Amen to that. I've only eaten in a few, but the food was terrible.
As for the Church crowd abandoning them, I remember when Wal Mart around here started selling alcohol. Several letters to the editor said they weren't going to shop in a liquor store. But it didn't seem to hurt WM's business any.
I remember growing up when our county would come up for a wet/dry vote, the Bootleggers and Moonshiners would all go to Church and drop a few hundred in the collection plate. Quite a fund raiser for the Church. A hundred was a lot of money in the 50's.
But the rich drank at the Country Club, the poor drank at the VFW or the Moose Lodge. Last time I went back home there was almost a liquor store on every corner.
The tax was 7 cents per gallon. I live in the heart of Whiskey Rebellion country. One of their meeting sites can be seen from my front porch. Has the historical marker and all. Several of the "Whiskey Rebels" are buried in the cemetery 1/4 mile from my place.
I live at the top of Whiskey Hollow. Lots of lore regarding the Whiskey Rebellion in this area. tom.
Beer would be the best item on the menu.
