John Coffee Hays Birthday Celebration
John Coffee Hayes
Legendary Texas Ranger, John Coffee Hays was one of the first explorers to find Devils River. At that time, the river was known to explorers as the San Pedro, named for St. Peter. Hays stood at the rough waters, peered into the deep canyons of this powerful river, and deemed it worthy of a much stronger name – The Devils River. from his ingenuity, our namesake was born. We celebrate his birthday with drink specials all day at the Distillery.
