Best local alcohol: Brothers Drake Meadery
You don't have to be a viking to love Brothers Drake mead (though, that'd be pretty sweet). Brothers Drake beat out last year's champ (and worthy adversary) OYO Honey Vanilla Bean Vodka by a razor-thin margin of 27 votes. Looks like this battle won't be over 'til the fat lady in the horned-hat sings.
Runners-up: OYO Honey Vanilla Bean Vodka, OYO Bourbon Whiskey, Michelone Reserve
