Retrospectives. Oscar Buzz. The Year in Review. Resolutions. Marriage Proposals. Political Punditry. The end of a year brings all of these lists, speculations, goal settings and prognostications right to the forefront of our day to day lives. So naturally we should throw parties.
Sure, megamarts and big box stores are now in the brew and booze biz. However, we have some great local places that ensure that our we can dream BIG yet shop SMALL right here in our area.
Besides the usual stores specializing libations, our local grocers are excellent sources for local beers, wines and other libations. They also tend to stock an interesting mix of…well…mixers. Plus while you are there you can check out what their deli’s have to offer. Walt Churchill’s, Sautter’s, and Sofo’s are must drop ins if you are planning a party or going to one.
Listed below are our favorite local libation locations.
