Quincy, IL
Rumor's - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Rumor's? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.

(217) 221-9046
632 N 5th St

Bones, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Bones

Isa & Isabelle Tavern
(217) 222-1062
601 N 5th St
Quincy, IL
Isa & Isabelle Tavern is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Isa & Isabelle Tavern

1301 N 12th St
Quincy, IL
Uncle Bob's Bar - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Uncle Bob's Bar is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

Jim's Family Inn
(217) 224-5971
1638 State St
Quincy, IL
Jim's Family Inn - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.

Kelly's Tavern
(217) 222-5579
2902 Broadway St
Quincy, IL
Kelly's Tavern - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Kelly's Tavern is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.

1007 N 18th St
Quincy, IL
Larry's Tavern - If you're looking to kick back, Larry's Tavern, located at [Address], is a safe bet. It's not the kind of place that's going to break your wallet, so that's more you have left over for happy hour.

601 Chestnut St
Quincy, IL
Jimbos Tap - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Jimbos Tap is probably not the place to do it. But if you're interested in grabbing a quick drink and possibly some bar food, Jimbos Tap is more than able to oblige.

How do they make beer, wine and liquor?

By Russ Cobbe

It's a good question and one you rarely think about on the way to the store to pick up a bottle or two of alcohol. They all involve some sort of fermenting process, which changes sugars in the ingredients into alcohol.


The basic ingredients are malted barley, yeast, water and sometimes other grains are added. Hops for example are used to make the resulting brew have a bitter flavor. Barley grain is turned into a malt by soaking it in water and allowing the grains to start germinating. The grains are then dried in a kiln, which stops the germination and voila you have malted barley. The malt is ground up and mashed with hot water, which is then boiled, the result is called wort. Next comes the fermentation process which starts with cooling down of the wort and the adding of yeast. The yeast turns the natural sugars that exist in the grain into alcohol over a period of time. The end result of course is beer.


The most important aspect of wine making is deciding when to pick the grapes from the vine. Conditions must be just right for the variety being used and the picking must be done quickly. Stems are removed from the grapes after picking and the skins are generally left on for at least 24 hours. The grapes are pressed to extract the juice from the grape. This juice is allowed to settle to remove any bits of skin. Yeast is added which turns the sugars in the grape juice to alcohol and carbon dioxide. There are specialized yeast cultures that act differently on the grape juice to provide different characteristics. The resulting wine is left so the yeast settles and the wine is drawn off, this can happen multiple times until the wine is clear. The wine is cold stabilized which precipitate white
crystals that are using in making tarter sauce. Finally the wine is filtered and bottled.


Spirits such as Rum, Vodka, Gin and Whiskey have a much higher alcohol percentage than wine o...
