    In Fine Spirits specializes in local small production wines at affordable prices along with a wide selection of whiskey. Stop by the retail store on Saturdays from 3-6pm to enjoy free tastings.

    As opposed to North Shore’s clean, smooth vodka, the In Fine Spirits vodka has a sugarcane base. “This has a little more body, a little more character, a little personality,” Sonja explains. Read more

    Must-try cocktail at the lounge: Dead Meadow. Named for the seminal stoner-rock band, this combination of bourbon and rye goes psychedelic with walnut bitters and apple whiskey.

    If I tell you an amazing whiskey in the store, they may run out when I want some! But here's a hint: as the IFS tag notes, this whiskey is half the price of its mainstream counterpart. Happy hunting!

    This place is the best! Cody and Natalie run a damn good bar. Wine list is excellent. But Johnny, stop checking into your own place of business! I want to be the mayor so I can boss Cody around!

    Michigan is one of the next best wine regions and IFS has taken notice. Try the Bel Lago Auxerrios (unique white), Fenn Valley Cab Franc or Fenn Valley Meritage (Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot)

    Try a bottle of hum, the world's most unique rum, made in Chicagand. It was served with ginger beer, cucumber and basil for Oprah's 25th Anniversary, so grab a bottle and check it out.

    At the lounge, be sure to try the corpse reviver no. 2, or the firkin on Fridays. At the store, check out the walk-in beer closet downstairs--well curated selection.

    On Wednesdays the house flatbread is $5, down from $8. Small but outstanding.

    Their barrel bottles are the finest selection of $5 or $6 bottle wines in the city. Always something original!

    Go downstairs to the beer section that is much better than what is upstairs and kept at a nice cool temperature.
