“Home to the End of the Line Distillery”

Brushy Mountain was the last place you wanted to find yourself – right in the middle of Tennessee’s first maximum-security prison holding the state’s most violent murderers, robbers and rapists for over a century. With some sentences of 200 years or more, most of the men who walked through its gates would never be walking out. Come see for yourself just what life was like for lost souls at the End of the Line.

One word. Moonshine. Very cool odd outta the way deal. A self guided tour through the prison then moonshine tasting after. We are a little skeptical about the stories told by the totally white retirees who worked there....if you treat people like animals they act like animals. It goes both ways. Just a thought.
