Featured Partner: TX Whiskey

Ever wonder where TX Whiskey is made? Well founders Leonard Firestone & Troy Robertson poured their all into creating a whiskey wonderland, fondly named Whiskey Ranch, in Fort Worth, TX. They redefined the ordinary when they created it just as they did when making TX Whiskey and TX Bourbon. The everyday drive and desire to pour their all into creating their award-winning whiskeys is what makes TX so special.

The TX team didn’t stop with just making great whiskey to put in the bottle, they also took great care into making the packaging. If you look carefully at the top of any bottle of TX Whiskey, you ’ll find a piece of Texas history and old-world engineering. Each cap is crafted with reclaimed leather from local cowboy boot-makers like Tony Lama Boots. The details of the bottle and the whiskey inside are a celebration of quality, craftsmanship and western heritage.

Featured Partner: Karbach Brewing Co.

Karbach wants to make it as easy as possible for you to recycle. Karbach’s “Recycle Dammit” campaign is part of their environmental and sustainability initiative, and they are literally rolling out the next phase of the campaign in the form of a huge recycling truck. Aluminum cans will be collected at their brewery in Houston as well as events across the state. Once the huge truck is full, Karbach will sell the recycled aluminum for scrap metal and donate the proceeds from each load to a nonprofit. Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation has been selected as the first nonprofit to benefit from the program.

“We want to make sure that we are being environmentally responsible,” said David Graham, Karbach Brand Manager. “We go to a ton of festivals and events where we see all of this aluminum going in the trash. We want to make it easy to recycle by providing a super large receptacle that event organizers don’t have to mess with. People can also bring their aluminum cans to us at the brewery in a garbage bag. We’re excited to donate the proceeds from the scrap to a different nonprofit each time we dump it!”

Make your way to Karbach and join in their “Recycle Dammit” campaign because this planet is the only one with beer!
