Whatever the favored flavor, Midwest's premium ingredients and handy how-to books help to make consistent batches each time, aiding brewers in avoiding the embarrassment of turning out a spicy pinot grigio or a bacon-flavored lager.

Just beyond the milky-blue and raspberry hues of its flowerbox-adorned storefront, Sewtropolis nurtures constant creativity with sewing workshops and do-it-yourself sewing stations. A self-taught sewist, owner Nikol Gianopoulos often teaches stitching techniques and threading essentials while her students assemble their own skirts, blouses, and quilts. Instructors Laura, Raina, and Annie also share their personal styles with children and adults while transforming elaborate fabrics and yarns into functional artwork. For personal projects, the shop carries sewing and quilting patterns from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Colette Patterns, and Tula Pink. A series of sewing machines, sergers, and cutting spaces are available for rent by the hour, and stacks of colorful bolts inspire creativity along with the shop dog Skilos, whose trusting gaze often convinces sewists to craft elaborate doggie mansions.

Since opening 40 years ago, each of the trees at B&J Trees has been planted, grown, and harvested on-site. Today, it's two resident arborists who nurture a slew of different tree breeds throughout the seasons. In the nursery, visitors will find more than 1,500 "balled and burlap" trees?whose trunks have been wrapped in burlap, and roots have been carefully nestled into a protective covering?including spruce, white pine, and balsam fir. During the summer months, full lines of landscape-ready trees line the walls. Come Christmas, they supply locals with lush, fragrant trees, including fraser fir, balsam fir, canaan fir, and pine. The folks at B&J encourage their patrons to bring along the whole family to enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, popcorn, cups of hot cocoa, a Santa Claus impersonator, and?at some sites?chainsaw carvings.
