Stillhouse Craft Burgers & Moonshine
Discovery Channel's Moonshiners recently filmed at Stillhouse Craft Burgers & Moonshine—a newly opened bar and restaurant that stocks all the moonshine Georgia has to offer. Bartenders often use this white lightning as the base for cocktails, which is sometimes aged for a month in the charred-oak barrels behind the bar. In addition to infusing these spirits with regional ingredients such as peaches and watermelon, they allow guests to smoke their drinks with flavors ranging from apple to maple wood chips. Then they garnish glasses with local berries, fresh fruit juice, and housemade syrups.
In the kitchen, chefs create a menu of burgers with grass-fed beef, Coca-Cola moonshine marinated chicken, and ground duck. They surround these patties with housemade condiments before baking cheese right onto the bun. In lieu of a towering burger, guests can choose from small plates, salads, and sides such as spicy macaroni and cheese or fried green tomatoes. Seating includes a mix of booths and whiskey-barrel tables, as well as a wooden back bar. Below their feet guests will find a stone floor; above them, a ceiling of copper drop tiles. These tiles call to mind Georgia's stills, which have traditionally used copper in the process of turning the moon's tears into moonshine. Patrons can also enjoy live acoustic music on Friday and Saturday evenings.
