It might be an understatement to call Kevin Brooks a "book lover." He began collecting, buying, and selling books in 2000 and kept at it until his library surpassed 70,000 titles. Originally known as "Brooks with Books," the store was eventually sold to another book-loving entrepreneur, Mark Johnson, who is now the president of Reedy River Book Company. The store still has a varied inventory, with a specialty in vintage books and used classics that are held to a high quality standard, as well as rare collectibles, such as first editions and copies of Goodnight, Moon signed by the moon.

Modeled after an Old World wine cellar, WineStyles's shelves are lined with rare bottles accrued by its staff of in-house experts hailing from quality vineyards across the globe. The shop's bounty includes handcrafted gift boxes and baskets and merchandise, such as guidebooks for translating secret codes etched in cork. If a specific bottle is missing from the selection, the quaff gurus place an order that often arrives within 24 hours. Along with retailing wine and imbibing gear, WineStyles's crew grants guests the opportunity to sample new pours at frequent events and two-hour tastings three nights a week. For dedicated aficionados, the chief wine taster chooses two bottles to send to wine-club members along with tasting notes that detail their origins, a winery description, and suggested food pairings.

When facing an expansive and ever-changing inventory of craft beers and fine wines, it is not hard to end up with a drink that doesn’t quite tickle your fancy. But At Cork & Tap, the staff takes time to help their guests navigate their collection of 16 tap craft beers and over 40 boutique wines to find the ideal libation. They also have the tools to ensure beverages stay in top-tasting form: bouquets linger in aerated Austrian Riedel glassware and frosty pint glasses keep draft beers cool more practically than an all-snowman staff. The staffers happily make recommendations for perfectly pairing beverages with artful nibbles from the chef’s menu of upscale eats, which include rich tapenade, hummus made from locally sourced herbs, and paninis stuffed with sugar-glazed ham and norwegian jarlsburg.
