Illinois-Made Gifts featured on WGN, including 2 of our very own

Illinois Tourism Director Cory Jobe appeared on WGN to talk about their #IllinoisMade Holiday Gift Guide, featuring potential gifts made from local makers and entrepreneurs truly representing the spirit of Illinois.  Two of our members were featured in the segment.

Illinois Sparking Company (and their sister brand, August Hill Winery) are amazing wines that are available in their Utica-based taproom, as well as at some nearby vendors as well.  Their wine bottles are on the desk amongst the items.

Tangled Roots Brewing Company makes tasty brews that are truly amazing.  Some of their brews are 100%-Illinois made, including from their locally-grown hops and other ingredients.  You can see their Winter Porter in the shot as well, which is this author's personal favorite (little bit of chocolate and coconut tastes as you drink the porter).
