I just spent a ton of money on Finger Lake, NY wine. Their reds are getting awesome there.
This place has awesome wine, and everything is very cheap. He's some hippie wine expert who totally ruleshttp://www.keukaoverlook.com/

Right now I'm having one of these. Check out the fucking can.
There are so many good breweries in Wisconsin, Illinois, and around the Midwest it's unreal. But the one beer I wish I could get here is Yuengling.
