We left Winters and drove to Eola, Texas to visit the states's most remote brewpub, the Eola School Restaurant and Bright Brewing Company. The owner, Mark Cannon, bought the old Eola School (built in 1928) four years ago. The place had been vacant for over 20 years and had been repeatedly vandalized. Mark has been renovating the place on an ongoing basis and he has done a tremendous amount of work. He gave us a tour of the place and we drank some of his beers (which were very good). Mark was nice enough to break out one of his few remaining bottles of banana lambic beer for us to try. We then drove on to Waco where we camped in the Army Corps of Engineers Midway Park on Lake Waco. We took some pictures of the sunset at the lake.
