Read the May issue!

Thanks to coasts, lakes, hills, orchards, and wide-open farmland, Michigan has the second most diverse agriculture industry in the nation, behind only California.

That means wine, spirits, cider, mead, beer — we can make it all with quality ingredients from our fair state, and we’re getting better at it every year. This annual issue is a celebration of that, highlighting some incredible distilleries, wineries and cocktail bars around West Michigan.

We have a Q&A with Grove and Bistro Bella Vita’s expert sommelier, a look at the latest wine trends, a round-up of great cocktails using every kind of spirit, and a story on how distilleries craft an elevated experience with their tasting rooms. And our talk with Café Mamo follows a similar theme, since they have one of the most intentionally designed restaurants around.

This month isn’t all about wine and spirits, though! We also have lots of music, from indie rock legends Modest Mouse to indie pop duo Matt & Kim. Plus, a chat with the illustrious Chris Gethard, as well as local psych-rock band Crooked Spires.

Summer is coming, which means it’s time to get your calendar mapped out. Have you spent the past two years wanting to delve into art but never quite taking the leap? Check out our guide to local arts classes and camps just for adults. Glassblowing, sculpting, string ensembles, painting, singing — whatever your passion, you can get started here.

In the meantime, enjoy Michigan spring with a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail in hand. I know I will.

‘Til next time,
Josh Veal, Managing Editor
