Holiday season is approaching: 5 things to do this weekend

Joe and Melissa Duer launched Indian Creek Distillery in 2012, using the same pot stills that Melissa Duer’s ancestors used in the early 19th century — and that her great-grandfather hid from federal agents during Prohibition in the 1920s. The distillery is poised to expand its product line and recently received recognition from Wine Spectator magazine. File photo by Jim Witmer/Staff
