With more than 30 sweet and savory olive oils and vinegars to choose from, Kalamazoo Olive Company may overwhelm the shrewdest gourmand. That?s why the shop?s expert staff members happily lead customers on tasting tours, pouring small samples from the gleaming fustis that line wooden shelves. Customers can taste oils infused with exotic ingredients such as chipotle peppers or persian limes and lap up sweet, syrupy dessert vinegars. Oil experts are also happy to recommend complementary food pairings from their shop?s selection of Italian pastas, antipasti, and stuffed olives. Once customers have honed in on their ideal oil or vinegar, staff will bottle and seal them onsite to ensure they stay fresh and free of genies.

Once functioning as a mere storage room off the beloved Dunedin House of Beer, Wine and Brew is a "wine-drinker's sanctuary," as described by the Dunedin Patch. Expanding into that room, owners Rick Clemo and Andy Polce transformed the space into a loungey destination for sipping glasses or sharing a bottle, or even taking a couple bottles home to enjoy later. The bar also boasts wine on tap, a rare feature, and of course pours a selection of craft brews, which rotate frequently.
