Stu’s Sour

Doser: Stu’s Kitchen

Founder: Stu Waters

Why we love them: Produce prince Stu and his party animal business partner Rudi Schmidt have joined forces to capture the best fresh flavors of Midwest produce in spicy, crisp pickles and mouth-tingling bloody mary mix. Gorgeous glass bottles and a hilarious collection of pickle-faces on their website complete the package.

Products: Stu’s keeps it simple, with the two ingredients essential to Chicago’s culinary culture: our Chicago hot dogs and our ultimate brunch beverage. Who said eating our veggies wasn’t fun?
