Cracker Barrel Adds Alcohol To The Menu

By Neat Pour Staff |

Whenever brunch returns, a new option will be on the table: Cracker Barrel. How ‘bout a CB Sunrise Special with a mimosa.

The road trip staple, ‘Old Country Store’ will be adding beer, wine, and mimosas to the menu nationwide as first reported by CNN.

Prior to the pandeic, the chain launched a pilot booze program at 100 locations in Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee. Apparently, the test balloon was an overwhelming success.

”Our guests have told us that offering beer and wine would reduce the veto vote — that is, those guests who would choose Cracker Barrel for a given dining occasion, but ultimately go elsewhere because they would like to have a beer or a glass of wine with their meal — especially during weekend dinner,” a Cracker Barrel spokesman told CNN via email.

The rep also noted that the project was conceived to appeal to the dinner crowd. However, during the trial run, execs discovered that mimosas with breakfast were selling surprisingly well.

Consequently, alcohol will be available all day at over 600 Cracker Barrel locations over the next few months. In addition, the company will offerto-go cocktail kits.

FEW Straight Rye Whiskey, a (70%rye, 20% corn, 10% malted barley) mash bill, forms the base of the spirit. However, the distiller proofs the barrel-strength rye whiskey down to bottling strength using 8 Immortals tea instead of water. Grown at an altitude of 2000 feet, in the southeastern corner of Guangdong Province, China, the Dancong oolong leaves are a real prize among tea nerds.)

Netflix’s ‘Oktoberfest: Beer & Blood’ Delivers Wiesn Watch

The six part miniseries is evocative of Boardwalk Empire… in turn of the 20th century Germany… with Samoan cannibals thrown in for good measure. The beautifully shot result is at times riveting and others absurdly mediocre (see Samoan cannibals). However, the writers included enough elements of Oktoberfest culture to keep a hophead entertained, even during the lowpoints.
