Image: Acme Barber Shop in Sandusky, Ohio USA  Sandusky is a small town city on the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio. It’s a cute little spot with just enough to keep you entertained for a couple days before you take a ferry over to the islands, which describe themselves as the “Midwest Key West” and it’s a pretty accurate description.

Put-in-Bay has one gas station, one hardware store, one school–K-12–one library, one grocery store, one bank, one post office, and two cemeteries; it’s also one heck of a good time. We arrived in the South Bass Island village on a sunny late summer afternoon. Beth and I weren’t sure what to expect.

The Burgeoning Wine Scene of Northern Ohio

Sandusky wine tasting at Mon Ami historic winery.

Over the last couple of years I’ve been fortunate to sip wines in places I never thought possible. It’s been a dream really. When we started Beers & Beans nearly six years ago, I had know idea that I’d have the chance to taste the wine–often times cheap, but always so delicious–in so many different countries.

All My Favorite Drinks Come From Lake Erie Islands

And as I look back on all the wine, beer, tropical exotics and cava that touched my lips, my thoughts always return to our trip to the Lake Erie Shores and Islands in September. I’m not sure what they’re putting in the water up there, but I’ve got to say that Northern Ohio has got it…
