Sinister Distilling Co


Part-microbrewery and part-gin distillery, Sinister Distilling Co doesn't choose sides between beer and liquor, but rather embraces both. Some say such an approach is sinister, but owners Eric and Jamie Howard seem to be doing just fine, their Howard's Hopped Up Gin winning a Silver Artisan Award in 2015. An onsite taproom, featuring ping-pong and televisions playing sports, is a close-to-the-source place to sip eight brews on tap, knock back some gin, and have a couple complimentary pretzels.
