As I continue to make my way through the wineries and distilleries around the state, I made a return trip to West Virginia's wine country.
The Sweeter Side of the Feud is located in Spencer and is a descendent of the famous Hatfield family and makes recipes from the family's moonshine.
The Original Hatfield Family Moonshine products are created using the ONLY original Hatfield family recipes.
Our moonshine is made with the exact same recipes that was passed down from Devil Anse Hatfield’s ancestors that was kept secret in the family Bible.
In 2014 Mark Hatfield, the Great Great Grandson of Devil Anse, decided to take the once kept family secret and bring the product to the public and let everyone taste the drink that many Hatfields had drank over years dating back to the infamous feud.
In fact, they sell a number of flavored moonshines, including the popular honey. And, they have about 18 wines!
Each is decorated with a story about the family's history and infamous feud.

Brake's Dairy King in Buckhannon combines two of my favorites: hot dogs and ice cream.
Fortunately, I caught this small restaurant as I was heading out of town. It's located along a strip with a few other businesses.
Their signature ice cream, much like DQ's Blizzards, are called Razzles here. And they have a few different flavors.
S'mores Razzle. I feel like graham cracker is the most underrated ice cream ingredient.
The West Virginia hot dog, complete with chili, slaw, mustard and onions. It's on a New England Style bun - which is not sanctioned by those at the WVHD Blog - but it sure does taste good.
Have you been?

The Social Bar & Grilled Cheese is a bar in Buckhannon that doubles as a grilled cheeserie.
This small space serves up a handful of creative grilled cheese sandwiches, like a caprese, pizza, pork rib bbq and funky monkey (with peanut butter, nutella, honey and marshmallow)
The woman working said the jalapeno popper is the most popular. Sold!
Jalapeno popper grilled cheese with colby jack, cream cheese and jalapenos.
