Local Brews & Wines
Here’s Some of Our Favorite Brewhouses 
Infinite Ale Works – This brewery and tap-house in the downtown Ocala area has 40 beers on tap, including a few of their own delicious creations. They have plans to release several new brews this month, including an intriguing jasmine green tea cream ale and imperial apeiron. Right now Infinite offers two different types of quadruple ale, an Imperial Stout, a summer pale ale, and yummy Belgian ale with cookie spices. Stop in and have a pint, sample something new, or grab a growler to go!

Stella’s Modern Pantry – We tend to mention Stella’s a lot, but that’s only because they are so awesome. Stella’s beer selection may seem limited when compared to other stores and tap-houses in the Ocala area, but don’t be fooled: they have beers you just can’t find anywhere else. Most of their selection focuses on imported Greek and Italian brews, perfect for sipping while chowing down on a meat and cheese plate or delicious panini. Opa!

Here’s Some of Our Favorite Wine Gardens
Ocala Wine Experience – This quirky little spot is perfect for the person who wants to enjoy good wine, good food, and good music. They have an impressive selection of wines, including an eight-wine flight with accompanying cheese plate. At The Ocala Wine Experience, you can enjoy wine and cigars in the Mediterranean-themed courtyard, or buy your own wine at the bar and have it uncorked with dinner.

The Corkscrew – If you’ve always wanted to make your own wine, but didn’t want to invest all the time and money in a personal vineyard, the good people at The Corkscrew can hook you up. The Corkscrew provides a do-it-yourself winemaking experience where you can choose your own varietal and ingredients-and then let someone else do all the work! You can even custom-design your own labels. Keep all that delicious vino to yourself (each session yields 30 bottles!) or design the perfect wine with your friends and share the results.

The Tao of You
Feng Shui-ing Your Way to Happiness

Ever felt that something in your home just doesn’t “feel right”? Felt that something about a room or area was just a little off center? You need some help from the ancient art of Feng Shui. Feng Shui is a system and method of understanding how humans relate to their environment, especially within the home. It focuses on the arrangement of objects and furniture to manipulate how at ease or uncomfortable we feel within a space, and it can make the difference between merely existing in a house or thriving in a home.

Here are some great, room-by-room Feng Shui tips and tricks to energize and bring out the best in your living space.
