Winery

1st: St. James Winery, St. James;
800-280-9463, www.stjameswinery.com
The Hofherr family started making wine in St. James nearly 50
years ago, producing 8,000 gallons in 1970. They're still at it and
along with winemaker Andrew Meggitt, the team at St. James
Winery now produces 500,000 gallons annually and brings home
a bevy of accolades. For a unique experience, join them on June
13 for their Grapes & Grains 5K. The run/walk will be through St.
James vineyards and features beer and wine samples every mile.
2nd: Stone Hill Winery, Hermann;
573-486-2221, www.stonehillwinery.com
The beautiful setting at Stone Hill is only topped by the wine. The
Norton is Missouri's state grape and fittingly, Norton is the flagship wine at Stone Hill. Grab a meat and cheese board and enjoy
the unforgettable ambiance at Stone Hill.
EC: Les Bourgeois Vineyards, Rocheport;
800-690-1830, www.missouriwine.com
Perched on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, Les Bourgeois
Vineyards boasts postcard-worthy views with delicious wine to
boot. From the sweet Riverboat White to the full-bodied, dry
Norton, you'll find something to please your palate.

Distillery

Brewery

1st: Piney River Brewing Company, Bucyrus;
417-967-4001, www.pineyriverbrewing.com
For Joleen and Brian Durham, beer made in the Ozarks and about
the Ozarks has always been the couple's guidepost. Since the first
batch of Piney River Brewing Co.'s brew rolled through the taps
and into cans in 2011, the brewery has grown to produce seven
year-round selections that can be found almost anywhere in Missouri. On weekends the taproom, known as the BARn, in Bucyrus
draws visitors from around the country to enjoy those award-winning beers plus pizza and pretzels and their son Andy's handcrafted
root beer in the setting of a 160-acre farm. "We've tried to celebrate what makes this part of America unique with our beer, and
that's what we think great microbreweries should do," says Joleen.
"They should be about a place."
2nd: Boat Town Brewing, Phillipsburg;
417-532-2772, www.boattownbrewing.com
With eight beers brewed on site and a few guest taps from other
breweries, you're sure to find something for you at Boat Town
Brewing. The Wyota Wheat is one the brewery's lightest beers;
this unfiltered hefeweizen is named for the Native American village that preceded Lebanon. For something with a little - OK a
lot - more punch go for the Perficle. The barrel-aged imperial
stout comes in at 12% ABV and is their flagship brew.
EC: Logboat Brewing Company, Columbia;
573-397-6786, www.logboatbrewing.com
Located about one mile from Mizzou, Logboat Brewing offers
up delicious brews with an unbeatable atmosphere. The bar and
tables were all built with reclaimed wood from an old Kansas City
schoolhouse. There's always plenty on tap, but you can't go wrong
with the signature Snapper IPA or Shiphead Ginger Wheat. There's
a large outdoor patio and you are free to bring your own food.

1st: Pinckney Bend Distillery, New Haven;
573-237-5559, www.pinckneybend.com
Pinckney Bend Distillery has come to be known for award-winning gins, vodkas and whiskeys. Stop by the tasting room and for
$5 you can sample a variety of their offerings. A must try is Pinckney Bend's gin and tonic. The libation features their signature gin
along with house-made tonic syrup and is served in a commemorative glass for you to keep. They recently made the drink available
in a can so it is float trip ready.
