Revolver Brewing

Overall, the weekend weather has been perfection. It’s the best time to be outside with great company and enjoy everything local. Over the past few weeks, we’ve found ourselves visiting local Fort Worth breweries and this past weekend we ventured just outside of town to Revolver Brewing in Granbury, Texas.

An easy 30 minute drive just off Highway 377, Revolver Brewing sits in a perfect location. Perfect as you feel like this is a little secret spot that only the people there know about. On first look, it was much bigger than I expected, extremely nice and most importantly – relaxing. This is what weekends are all about, right?!

From 12 to 3pm, visitors can enjoy four glasses of their favorite Revolver Brews in a custom Revolver glass (which they keep). Come after 2pm and you’ll be allotted two pours. For $10 each, this is a great deal! Around 1:30pm, we enjoyed a little tour from a brewmaster who provided some insight on their operation as well as answering some questions from guests.

Outside, there was a great space full of picnic tables, seating, games and most importantly a stage with a live band. Food vendors are also available each weekend. With the weather being in the 70’s, it couldn’t get any better. All of my favorite things in one location.

Sometimes it’s nice to get out of the city and enjoy something close but a little out of sight from the everyday “norm”. This was it. We were still able to head back to Fort Worth and enjoy the rest of the day and meet up with some great people. If experiencing local brews is your thing, I’d highly recommend placing Revolver on the top of the list.

Granbury Ghost & Legends Tour

#GranburyGhost #VisitGranbury #GhostTour

The weather is becoming cooler and Halloween is just around the corner. Now is the best time to head to Granbury for prime stories, spooks and scares. I was recently invited out to attend the Granbury Ghost & Legends Tour in Granbury, Texas. If you’re looking for a place to get goosebumps, this is it.

Upon arrival, I was situated in the middle of the town square, surrounded by history, folklore and legendary tales. Perhaps you’ve been to Granbury before, or maybe this is a first trip but there’s something for everyone that will leave you surprised and amazed. I was greeted by my guide who took us around town prompting stories and surprises.

Although I’ve been to Granbury numerous times, it’s the first time that I really got to listen to some of the amazing history that the walls in the town have to tell.  We visited buildings that I’ve passed by previously and even shopped, private residences and B&B’s that make this town so enchanted.

Keep an eye (or an ear) out for Mary Lou Watkins. She died in 2001 however she still checks in from time to time to make sure everything is running smoothly.

History looms forward with tales of Davy Crockett, Bonnie and Clyde, John Wilkes Booth and other outlaws. There’s a lot more to this town than meets the idea.

We stopped by the jail where we learned about Joe the Indian and other “visitors” that have passed thru the doors over the years.

The Aston House

The Aston House is a private residence in town however there have been multiple reports of activity within these walls. This home was built for Dolly in 1905 and sources say she has stuck around. There’s also tales of a friendly cat that has stayed (not the one on the front steps, I asked but maybe not entirely convinced). We were told that when we feel a presence we are suppose to say If you mean us harm please leave, if you mean us no harm, please stay. We were told a story about how one day, the occupants at the time heard a knocking sound. They soon repeated the phrase and heard footsteps walking around the house. To find out whether or not the footsteps left or stayed, you’ll have to take the tour!

The Gordon House

The Gordon House is an enchantment. Audrey Gordon is the primary resident, a child who died at the age of five. She is a lively and happy spirit that has played with local children who have come for music lessons over the years. If you have any doubts about ghost stories, this is the house that you’ll most look forward to on the tour. It’ll leave you questioning your doubts. It left me with goosebumps.

John Wilkes Booth went missing for some time after he shot Abraham Lincoln. Funny thing is there was a man who came to town to teach theatre that had many similarities to John Wilkes Booth named John St. Helen. Within the businesses in the town square, we learned more about the similarities between these two men and what became of the assassination of the President, a love story between a cowboy and a lady for the gentlemen and about a faceless little girl who wanders the streets and businesses.
#GranburyGhost #VisitGranbury #GhostTourEven on our tour, I found myself asking questions and couldn’t believe a couple tales that held hidden surprises along the way. It made me wonder just what happened in some of these buildings so long (and not so long) ago and what they leave behind.

If you love the tales of the past that make their way to the present, book yourself a personal tour. The Ghost and Legends Tour also has tour options for a nearby cemetery that holds secrets of its own including General Granbury himself and Jesse James.

Don’t forget to bring your camera – you may find evidence that they’re paying you a visit as well!
