Tasting Journey: Revolver Brewing

2

I often come across passionate, enthusiastic characters in my travels. More often than not they have something to do food and drinks. I love learning about their passion for what they create and I love sharing my finds with you, so you can visit too.


Revolver Brewing is a newcomer to the craft beer scene in Texas with their grand opening in Granbury, Texas, in October 2012. World class beers for a Texas palate are created by Grant Wood, a former brewer for the Boston Beer Company. Wood found his way back to Texas, alongside owner Rhett Keisler, to get back to their roots and create craft beer for a Texas audience. The beers they craft are light-bodied, full of flavor, and the brewery, well-worth a visit the next time you're in the Dallas area. They've got big plans and I suspect they'll be making interesting beers for many years to come.

At Barking Rocks Winery in Granbury, Texas, each grape crushing reveals a different path. The winemaker, Tiberia, is not interested in recreating the same bottle of wine again and again, but instead lets the grapes lead him through each barrelling. The journey of Barking Rocks Winery began ten years ago with an early retirement and a career change that led Tiberia to reinvent himself, dropping his first name and returning to his Italian heritage through winemaking. For the past decade, he and his wife Sissy have been sticking to their motto “making wine, friends and events happen.”

Texas is big. (Dinner plate cinnamon roll big.) It’s a whole other world with regions and cultural divisions that I can’t even begin to cover or, as a foreigner, ever understand. As outsiders, we cling to our stereotypes of Texas in an effort to make sense of it all. Television, the media, and George W. Bush have helped us, for better or worse, attempt to understand the subtleties of what it means to be Texan. But, let’s push those preconceived notions of Texas out of our mind, for the moment, and take a look at another representation of Texas, its cuisine.
