Meet Your Maker with Yelp: Wilks & Wilson Syrups

Yelp has a series of events called “Yelp Gets Schooled” that celebrates “meeting the makers” and learning what goes in to the success of some of Indy’s best rated businesses. The week’s featured class is with Wilks+Wilson Syrups.

Wilks & Wilsonʼs hand-crafted, organic infused and all natural elixirs, though also meant for use in non-alcoholic beverages, cooking and coffee, are intended for use in cocktails. Many of these cocktails were common to the late-1800s to the early 1900s– also known as the pre-Prohibition era.

Zach and Greg wanted to brand themselves in that era, going for the term “patent medicine.” Patent medicine was the term for secret, original remedies common to this period, which often carried crazy names and wild claims. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
