The things you find out while on a distillery tour.

This past weekend, I found myself in DeKalb at Whiskey Acres. Took the tour, and you know what? I actually learned some stuff.

Sure, I found out how Whiskey Acres does their thing, but I took away something even more important than how their booze is made.

I found out you can buy alcohol at Sam's Club in Rockford without having a membership.

My mind was blown. Of course, I needed to verify the tour guide's claim.

Because of a law that prohibits the sale of alcohol through members-only arrangements, all Sam's Club stores will sell beer, wine, and the hard stuff to nonmembers.

The same goes for the new Costco that's going in on Riverside in Loves Park.

Sam's Club in Rockford is located at 7151 Walton Street, open most days 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
