Housed inside the Old B&O Train Station, Rust Belt brews nine craft beers, with a handful more scheduled for release early next year. Each Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., fans of yeast and hops can gather 'round head brewer Lee Gidley as he guides them on a tour of the brewery, showing them equipment, explaining the brewing process, and doling out samples of the luscious liquid gold. When the half-hour tour concludes, everyone receives a commemorative Rust Belt Brewery T-shirt, a souvenir pint glass, and a jolly memory to overtake the brain space currently inhabited by knowledge of the Gigli plot. If the tour inspires a powerful thirst for more, Rust Belt sells growlers of their guzzleables to take home, and the neighboring Boxcar Lounge has Rust Belt on tap.
Transform your wine technique from a semi-inspired slosh to a proper swirl by traversing a variety of distinct wine blends at WineStyles. The shop hosts a range of rare reds and whites at each tasting. And, because WineStyles specializes in hard-to-find wines from vineyards large and small, you'll be sure shake tongues with a few blends for the very first time. If you opt to share this Groupon with a date, pre-arrange a system of non-invasive hair twirls and playful shoulder touches to express your confident vote of approval. If something strikes your fancy throughout the tasting, simply spill a few drops on your shirt and the expert staff will happily sniff out a corresponding bottle for purchase.
For four generations, the same family has tilled the soil beneath the grape vines that thrive at Barrel Run Crossing Winery and Vineyard. Originally used to grow grain, hay, soybeans, and wheat, the land saw its first vines in 2006, and grapes have been planted each subsequent year. Now totaling 10 acres, up to eight grape varietals flourish on the land. The result of these planting efforts is a host of handcrafted wines and ciders, including 2012 Ohio Wine Competition award winners Tipsy Conductor and Engine Number 5. All of Barrel Run Crossing’s wines are available for sampling in the spacious tasting room and for purchase by the thimble, glass, or bottle.

On September 12th, 1920, the Franklin Hotel opened in Kent, Ohio, all six stories of it a sign that the skyscraper era had arrived in small-town Ohio. As one of the finest, most modern hotels in the state during the 20s and 30s, the Franklin Hotel saw its share of notable guests, among them Amelia Earhart and Eliot Ness. Now known as Acorn Corner, the proud structure still stands as a monument to the prohibition-era joviality it once presided over. Today, that attitude is preserved and on display in Secret Cellar, a speakeasy-themed wine bar and performance venue influenced by the building's historic roots.
