I have my tickets for the 417 WhiskeyFest. It happens in Springfield, MO. If you need a reason or excuse to go to Branson, it’s just up the highway. I have been for the last 2 years and it is fun. They get most of the big distillers because of the Brown Derby Liquor stores. Springfield is a happening town. Lots of new restaurants and a wonderful new farmers market on the south side of the James River freeway. Besides the produce there is a nice selection of meat producers and cheese makers.
ANd if you head down to Branson you can check out the Copper Run Distillery for some samples of real Ozark whiskey.
See y’all there.
