Penguin Paddle Returns Feb. 24


By Alicia Dziak

It’s that time of year again when the annual Penguin Paddle fundraiser for Holiday Valley’s Lounsbury Adaptive Program (LASP) makes its way to the slopes of Holiday Valley. On Saturday, Feb. 24, jump into a black garbage bag and take a ride down Yodeler penguin-style, all for a great cause. The Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program (LASP) was founded by dedicated ski patrollers with the cooperation and support of Holiday Valley Ski Resort in September 1988. The program was started to honor Bill Lounsbury, who was a member of the Holiday Valley Ski Patrol. He lost a leg to cancer in 1982, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing his love of skiing. Bill taught himself to ski on one leg, and his courage and love of skiing was an inspiration to many. After Bill lost his battle with cancer, the first pieces of adaptive equipment for the program were purchased using donations sent to the Holiday Valley Ski Patrol in Bill’s memory. The Pengiun Paddle was officially born in 1990, but had been unofficially around for a few years before that when a series of après ski parties in the spring often led to “penguin slides” down Yodeler in front of the ski patrol building. Over the years, the LASP has grown to 40 instructors who work together to teach

Coin Flip Sets Ellicottville Boys 4th in Class D By Sam Wilson

A slate of 10 league games wasn’t enough to separate the Franklinville and Ellicottville boys basketball teams. So to set the seedings for the Section 6 Class D playoffs, the section’s boys basketball committee used the time-tested random tiebreaker of a coin toss. As a result,

Mangan run of Super-G and one run of slalom, but the Olympic version has Downhill instead of Super-G, and Tricia and coaches felt it would be better to focus on training for the team event rather than race a downhill since she has had minimal training in downhill all season. We returned home from South Korea on Sunday after an absolutely fabulous trip! Tricia’s support crew this week will be made up of several aunts,

uncles, and cousins who travelled to Pyeongchang this week. She is incredibly excited to see them, and to be racing this weekend! To be part of the Olympic experience is difficult to describe, and for all eight of our family to be there last week was truly special. The atmosphere and excitement of the games with all of the athletes and families present, as well as the spectators and volunteers, is overwhelming, and to be there with Tricia was over

the top. In addition to watching Ladies GS, we were able to watch Men’s Alpine Combined, Shawn White’s gold at Men’s Half Pipe, Luge, Biathlon, and Speed Skating! Each was remarkable in their own way, from the raw speed of the Luge to the hilarious Swedish announcer (and incredible marksmanship) during the Biathlon. Thank you all again, and go Tricia and Team USA!

We’re already halfway through the six long weeks of winter that Punxatawney Phil predicted, but there is still much to look forward to at the end of February. From the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics to spring equinox, there are so many opportunities to say “goodbye” to winter and welcome a new season! Feb. 25 marks the last day of the Winter Olympics. As you’re keeping an eye on the medal counts, you can make your own medals to proudly wear when the closing ceremony kicks off at 8 p.m. on Sunday night. These salt dough Olympic medals are easy, fun and can be personalized in a variety of different ways. To get started, combine 1 cup of salt and 1 cup of all-purpose flour in a bowl. Gradually add ¾ cup of water and knead the mixture until it forms a dough. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky or, if the dough is too dry to hold together, add more water a teaspoon at a time. If you like, add some glitter confetti to make sparkly medals! Roll out the dough to at least ½” thickness and use a round cookie cutter to cut out the medals. Push a straw into each medal to create a hole for the ribbon. Make plain medals or use wooden numbers or refrigerator magnets to make impressions in each one for first, second and third place. Place the medals on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 2 hours at 210 degrees. Turn over once halfway through. Once the medals are cool, use acrylic paints to paint them gold, silver or bronze. Allow the paint to dry and thread a wide ribbon through them. Wear with pride!

Last week marked the start of the season of Lent, which comes from the Anglo Saxon word for spring, lencten, and marks the 40 days before Easter Sunday. Today, many Catholic and Protestant Christians observe this sacred time of year through reflection, prayer and fasting, most notably abstaining from meat on Fridays. So why was Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, on Valentine’s Day this year? And why doesn’t Easter fall on the same date every year? The answer is in the stars…or the moon, to be more precise. According to the Bible, Jesus held the Last Supper on the night of the Jewish festival of Passover; he died the next day on Good Friday and rose on the third day (Sunday). The date of Passover is determined by the first full moon after spring equinox (the day on which the lengths of daytime and nighttime are the same, due to the earth’s position in its orbit around the sun). In keeping with Passover and the Bible’s timeline of events, in 325 CE the Council of Nicaea decided that Christians would observe Easter on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after March 21, the official date of spring equinox. Depending on the date of this full moon, Easter can fall anywhere between March 22 and April 25. This year, the first full moon after March 21 occurs on March 31; therefore,

Easter will be on April 1, as this will be the first Sunday after the full moon. Celebrate this first full moon of spring with a sweet treat like the Full Moon Chocolate Pie. In a medium bowl, mix one 9-oz box of crushed chocolate wafer cookies with ½ cup of melted butter. Press firmly in the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9 ½-inch glass pie plate. Freeze for 30 minutes. In another bowl, beat 4 egg yolks with a fork and set aside. In a saucepan, mix 2/3 cup of sugar and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch. Gradually stir in 2 cups of milk, and heat to simmering over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Slowly stir half of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolks and return the mixture to the pan. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and boils. Remove from the heat. Immediately stir in 8 ounces of chopped bittersweet baking chocolate and 1 ½ teaspoons of vanilla until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Spoon the filling into the crust and cover in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 8 hours or until set. In a small bowl, beat ½ cup of whipping cream and 2 tablespoons of sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Spread whipped cream over the filling to within 1 inch of the crust and enjoy!

ECS NEWS Sometimes It Just Takes More Than a Village ECS Musical March 15-17


Insurance for Seasonal Homes, Homeowners, Auto, Business, Workers Compensation and More. Call Sean Cornelius today. Weed Ross Agency

By Louisa Benatovich, ECS Student Reporter

Over the years, ECS has performed multitudes of musicals for the community. From Rodgers and Hammerstein’s smash hit “South Pacific” to the legendary Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes,” students captivate and astound time and time again. This year, the drama club is set to perform “The Drowsy Chaperone.” An insanely humorous parody of 1920s theatre, this “musical within a comedy” is a different foray into the arts for ECS Drama. Unknown to all cast members before rehearsal began—a collective drowsy “what...?” was heard when the show was first mentioned—students have now fully embraced this musical sensation. So had, it turns out, East Aurora High School. This provided the perfect opportunity: the chance to share ideas, cultivate friendships and truly appreciate the musical on a new level. On Feb. 11, ECS Drama Club went to see “The Drowsy Chaperone” performed by none other than East Aurora students. As soon as the musical started, the audience was rapt. Every funny line, every zinger was delivered perfectly. Put best by Allison Calarco, an ECS cast member, “even though we knew how the show was going to go and all of the funny scenes, they made me feel that I was watching it for the first time.” The entire ECS cast echoed the sentiment. “After seeing their show, I know that I have to make my character bolder,” said Emma Steffenhagen. “There is never such a thing as too much!” While ECS director Jon Wilder and East Aurora director Chris Cummins decided which parts of the

set and props Ellicottville would borrow for its own show, Ellicottville students mingled with the actors, stage crew, and student orchestra. Initially, they felt a little daunted after such an amazing performance, but East Aurora’s cast and crew was so friendly and happy to share ideas that ECS students were quickly put at ease. Evan Quinn, a lead actor in “The Drowsy Chaperone,” was particularly affected by his experience. “I was pleasantly greeted with a wonderful performance and a just as wonderful cast. This cast was happy to help us by answering any questions we had about how to improve and make our show just as good, if not better. I hope they get to see the result of their advice when we perform in March.” East Aurora, however, made one thing clear: it’s Ellicottville’s job to make the play its own. To not do so would defeat the purpose of high school theatre, which is an opportunity to test your limits, showcase your own talents, and explore parts of yourself you didn’t know existed. The students from both schools got along so well that tentative plans were made for East Aurora to drive the hour to watch the ECS performance in March. Wilder was very pleased with the success of the outing: “Our attending the

East Aurora High School Drama Club’s performance of ‘The Drowsy Chaperone’ was a tremendous experience for our cast members in that it provided them with valuable insight into their character which they can use as inspiration in developing their own stage persona. While watching YouTube and DVD clips of the musical can be helpful, there truly is no other way to gain this insight than attending a live theatrical performance.” On the Tuesday following East Aurora’s final performance, Cummins was happy to share his thoughts. “I am so pleased that the Ellicottville cast members spoke with the cast and crew of the East Aurora Drama Club following their final performance. The fact that they are continuing their correspondence in social media demonstrates the rapport and mutual respect which was immediately felt and established between the two casts.” The whole experience was a beautiful example of how strangers can become friends over a single commonality. Ellicottville is lucky to have not only the helping hands and creative minds of its own district, but the set, props, and genuine support from their new friends at East Aurora. Come and see Ellicottville’s take on “The Drowsy Chaperone” at 7 p.m. on March 15, 16 or 17 at ECS.

Franklinville pushed ahead of Ellicottville for third in Class D, dropping the Eagles to fourth. Franklinville (17-3) awaits either No. 6 Panama (11-9) or No. 11 North Collins (6-14) for a Friday Class D quarterfinal. The Panthers seek a secondstraight sectional title after making a run to the state final four last year. But No. 1 seed Buffalo East (14-6) could stand in the way for both Franklinville and its rival Ellicottville. If seeds hold, Franklinville would play No. 2 Sherman (15-5) and Ellicottville (18-2) would play East in the semifinals at JCC. The Eagles will play either No. 5 Frewsburg (118) or No. 12 Brocton (2-18) Friday. Ellicottville beat Frewsburg 55-41 in the Eagles’ holiday tournament Dec. 14. “They’re a pretty physical team, they have some good size, so that would be a tough matchup at home in that quarterfinal game,” coach Dave McCann said. “As far as East goes, I’ve seen them play a couple times and they’re athletic,” he added. “(Willard) Anderson is one of the best guards in Western

Ellicottville (10-10) took the fourth seed in Class D and a Thursday first round home game against No. 5 Pine Valley (13-7).

Ellicottville Distillery Wins ‘Double Gold’ Medal for its Corn Whiskey

By Deb Everts

Ellicottville Distillery has been put in the spotlight by the website The Fifty Best and awarded a Double Gold medal for “The Agronomist: New York State Corn Whiskey.” The Fifty Best hosted a Moonshine Tasting Nov. 30 in New York City, where 12 contenders were evaluated for the distinguished “Best Moonshine” awards for 2018. The results were published earlier this month. Using professional criteria, the pre-qualified panel of judges blind-tasted the moonshines and rated them individually on a point scoring system. After tallying the scores, medals were awarded based on the judges’ impressions. Distiller Bryan Scharf said his corn whiskey was one of only two moonshines among the 12 contenders to win the Double Gold award. The Agronomist New York State Corn Whiskey is distilled from 100 percent corn and is 80 percent proof. Complete ranking results, along with tasting notes, are published on “The Fifty Best” online,, which is a digital guide to wines and spirits. The website features rated listings from proprietary blind tastings judged by wine/spirits journalists, spirits professionals, retailers, mixologists, spirits consultants and connoisseurs. The Fifty Best achieves the highest standards of spirits evaluations by adhering to strict tasting rules and rigorous methodology. The Fifty Best described the spirit’s nose, palate and finish with a handful of descriptions. Its nose

was described as ripe banana peel, sweet corn, and popcorn, among others; descriptions for its palate included vanilla, sugar cane and breadfruit; and its finish included descriptions like corn, corn husks, berries, nutty, herbal, clean and smooth. “The nose is what you smell before you try the spirit, the palate is how it sits and tastes on your tongue,” he said. “The finish is what the spirit leaves in your mouth after you finish the taste. Not all of those things are actually in the spirit, but those are the descriptors the judges used to describe what they tasted.” The Ellicottville Distillery officially opened its doors for business in October 2016. In addition to being chief distiller, Scharf also manages the distillery and is in charge of most of the day-to-day operations. His partners, Charlie and Liz Bares of Ellicottville, own the farmlands where the corn and barley crops are

grown, making the distillery self-sustaining and allowing it to operate independently. Scharf said the ability to grow their own products sets them apart, unlike most distilleries that buy commodity grain. The distillery currently offers the more traditional corn whiskey and vodka. Scharf said his corn whiskey will be aged soon and they’re working to have a gin out this summer. Along with honey spirits, he hopes to add other products in the future including a line of 100 percent corn bourbon that he’s currently working on. Ellicottville Distillery is located at 5462 Robbins Road near Ashford Junction. Public tastings are currently held on Saturdays from noon to 4:30 p.m. and are expected to be extended this summer. For more information, visit the distillery online at, Facebook or Instagram.

Irish Wake Band Brings Irish Cheer to EVL Feb. 24

By Alicia Dziak

Most of us have heard the saying “Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day” but you don’t have to be Irish to enjoy the holiday, or the sense of community and camaraderie that comes along with celebrating the culture. While St. Paddy’s day is still a few weeks away, you can get a jump on the Irish cheer this weekend, when the Irish Wake Band makes its debut in Ellicottville on Feb. 24 at Finnerty’s Tap Room. The Irish Wake Band got its start in 2015 kind of by luck. As the story goes, high school buddies Pat Stack and Steve Dillon grew up around Irish music. Pat’s father, Bernie Stack, led a local Irish band called the Blarney Bunch that entertained audiences for nearly 30 years, and by the 1980s, in need of a guitarist for a show, Pat offered up his friend Steve, who said had never actually played Irish music before. In later years, the friends would get together with Bernie and some friends around St. Patrick’s Day and play at a little bar in downtown Niagara Falls. In 2014, Pat retired from his day job as a 25-year veteran of the Niagara Falls Police force, and opened his own little pub, called Somewhere, in Youngstown, N.Y. High on his list of priorities for this new place was throwing a St. Paddy’s Day party in order to carry on the tradition of getting together with friends and family and playing Irish music, still led by Pat’s father. The tent added to the outdoor patio added a little space to the 50-person capacity space, but not enough to handle the 500-plus crowd that showed. “So when 2015 came around, Pat and I knew we needed a bigger tent,” Dillon said. “With our combined experience in managing and hosting parties from our younger days, Pat being a club manager before turning police detective, and I hosting summer bashes for many years, we concluded that this would not a problem. But unfortunately, Pat’s dad, 83 years old at the time, still playing flawlessly like a master musician, began to not feel well, and Pat thought

we may need to find other entertainment, since we would be busy running a much larger anticipated party.” The friends searched endlessly, but every local Irish bands they could find was booked. “It was at that time I told Pat, we have no choice but to start our own band, and continue the tradition set upon us by his father,” explained Dillon. “In order to overcome our lack of time, we knew we had to get accomplished musicians,” said Dillon. “Amazingly, we eventually found all of them in our own backyard. They were music teachers that taught our kids, they worked at the local music store, Lewiston Music, where we bought all of music supplies and instruments. It makes you realize that Western New York has just an amazing abundance of top quality musicians, it’s incredible.” The Irish Wake Band was formed, made up of Stack on lead vocals; Dillon on banjo, mandolin and accordion; Ray Berry on mandolin, banjo and guitars; Dave Stayner on guitars; Tony Petrocelli on acoustic bass and bass guitar; Jennifer Pauley on violin and mandolin; Evan Keefer on tin whistle and bagpipes, Marc Perricelli on keyboards and percussion; and Joe Brennen on percussion, bodhran and drums. “Like all of Irish music, an Irish wake is a celebration of lost loved ones with a little Irish cheer, a send-off if you will,” Dillon said of naming the band. While the Irish Wake Band usually limits its sets to shows in Youngstown, they will be making their first appearance in Ellicottville this weekend. Dillon, who regularly visits Ellicottville with his family, approached

Finnerty’s recently with the idea to play there over the February break when Dillon says “there’s always a nice crowd.” According to Dillon, owner Bill Finnerty was immediately receptive to the idea, and the show was scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 24. Stack and Dillon say that anyone in attendance at their show can expect a party. “If you’re there, you’re gonna be singing!” said Dillon. “There will be a lot of Irish cheer.” They describe their music as fun and diverse, covering all genres of Irish music, from folk to pub songs to modern day. They cover songs by bands such as Great Big Sea, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, but also some traditional Irish songs that have been around so long the author is unknown. The music is also interspersed with storytelling, so guests can expect a bit of a history lesson. (Dillon and Stack are clearly very passionate about Irish history and attribute much of their knowledge back to Pat’s father.) The show begins at 7 p.m. and will last a few hours. Stack is quick to add that “We’re having fun. We’re not looking at our watch!” If you need another excuse to get in the door, Stack and Dillon noted that Finnerty’s will have a special Irish menu on tap, including traditional fare like shepherd’s pie, reubens and corned beef and cabbage. End the mid-winter break on an Irish note, good times with good friends and great music! Finnerty’s is located at 5 East Washington Street in Ellicottville.

Positive You for Positive Change: Stop Passing Judgment

By Kim Duke NETA & AAFA Certified Trainer

All the ideas I had for articles today seem like nonsense compared to the incredibly upsetting events that have taken place in our country. For anyone who knows me, you know that I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. I have endured my share of ups and downs and have tried to learn from these experiences versus blaming others for my circumstances. Now, this does not always come easily; it’s easier to have that knee jerk reaction to situations that are upsetting and seem unfair. But, as I have learned the hard way, “there are two sides to every story.” In this day and age, it has become all too clear that no side can come up with solutions because too many people are too busy screaming at the top of their lungs to listen. The debates I see that are critical to our country and our communities revolve around gun control and opiates. We all know someone who has lost his or her life to gun violence or an overdose. These tragedies seem to have had a foreshadowing or a warning sign that we see after the fact. And instead of looking for real life solutions, we start blaming and judging. We have become a country and a community where one side bashes the other. The name-calling and judgments I see on social media are out of control. No one looks up facts; instead they rely on hearsay or junk news to debate their issues. The fact of the matter

is people are dying. They are dying for reasons that we blame on mental illness, race, religion and wealth. And instead of finding answers, we pass judgments and look for others to blame. This trickle down effect starts with our elected officials and lands into the laps of many sitting behind their computers and smart phones name calling the victims of these tragedies. Others use the Bible and/or their religion to comfortably pass judgments. So, I looked to the Bible for its thoughts on judgments. Luke 6:37-42 Judging Others 37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.” 41 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? The answers to these growing crises is not cut and dry. There are clearly many layers. BUT, until we as the human race decided to treat each other with some form of dignity and respect, you can expect more of the same. In this article I am calling on YOU, to disregard our elected officials/neighbors who are insulting and insinuating things to create chaos. Look inside your souls and hearts and do what is right, not what is popular. Try extra hard to leave curse words and name calling out of your conversations and put yourself in a victim’s shoes. There are reasons these incidents occur. There are warning signs. Try and see both sides before you shoot off your mouth or, even worse, type out your messages on social media. Lives are at stake. Not just in Florida or Las Vegas or Newtown, but, right here and right now. Let’s continue the conversations and discontinue the hateful name-calling. Let not wait for another massacre or overdose epidemic— let’s be the change that our country and community so desperately need.

Pheasant Raise & Release Program in EVL Feb. 28

It is that time of year again! Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cattaraugus County is now taking orders for the annual RingNecked Pheasant Raise and Release Program. Cattaraugus County has one of the biggest deliveries of pheasant chicks every year. In 2017, we were able to distribute over 500 chicks to local 4-H families and volunteers who then raised and released them back into the wild. Pheasant hunting has a long tradition as one of the most popular small game hunting activities in New York. DEC’s Small Game Hunter Survey indicates that about 23,000 hunters harvest over 50,000 pheasants statewide, while spending almost 106,000 days afield annually. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service 2006 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, small games hunters spent approximately $600 per person per year on trip and equipment-

related expenses in 2006, contributing millions of dollars to the state economy. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 5:30 p.m. at the CCE Office in Ellicottville—28 Parkside Dr. Ellicottville, NY 14731—to come out and learn all about the project! The pheasants are free; your financial responsibilities include providing feed and adequate shelter for the birds until their release. Come out and ask questions to those who have been doing it for years and see what works and does not work for them. RSVP for this event by calling (716) 699-2377 ext. 130 or emailing ajl387@ We look forward to seeing you there! Cattaraugus County 4-H is always looking for new members and volunteers to be a part of our great program. 4-H is open to youth ages 5-18 as of Jan. 1. There is always room for growth and we are excited to see what the New Year brings our way!

Plans are to add an elevator for second floor access to a large brick-lined room capable of seating 200 people for a variety of events. The pub will be built behind the building. The brewery is currently under construction by a crew of around 15 craftsmen, including specialty welders. Most of the rest of the work on the building has been done by local companies. Peter Kreinheder, president of Kreinheder Properties LLC, walks through the brew house with its stainless steel brewing vessels and fermentation casks. There are large beer storage containers in the high-ceilinged cream white colored room as well. Most of the stainless steel is still wrapped in protective white plastic. Technicians are working on electronics for the brewing vats under the direction of a representative from the German company they were purchased from. Welders are working on piping for the fermentation tanks, manufactured in Oregon. Nearby, the filling machine — featuring German technology built in Italy — has a 32-head filler. It waits to be hooked up to the filler production line for bottles that originate in what Kreinheder calls the Lavern and Shirley room. Empty bottles are introduced into the line, where bottles are washed and labels are applied before the line goes to the bottling room. After filling, the bottles come back into the Lavern and Shirley room where they are automatically loaded into 12 packs and 6 packs. The line was built by a Portland, Ore. company. Kreinheder says a canning line will be added later. Right now, all Ellicottville Brewing Co. beer is being made at the Ellicottville site. Materials are stored at the

Little Valley site and shipped to Ellicottville for bottling and filling kegs. Kreinheder had hoped to be making beer at the Little Valley site by now, but several construction issues came up including the need for a pretreatment plant for wastewater. The wastewater, high in sugars, will be run through a reverse osmosis system before being discharged into the village wastewater treatment system. Some will be used for cleaning purposes in the brewery. He’d like to open the pub this summer, which would feature a tasting room with a bar and a menu that is still being developed. “We’re still working on the menu,” Kreinheder said. “It will be complementary but different than the Ellicottville restaurant.” Brewing will continue at the Ellicottville site, but bottling operations will focus on Little Valley. Highend lagers including oak barrel-aged beers will be featured in Ellicottville. Kreinheder plans to have outdoor music events behind the Little Valley brewery. Kreinheder’s plan to build the Little Valley site of Ellicottville Brewing Co. into a regional brewery destination rests on The Science Center of Brewing that will take up the north end of the building. “It will be where we can show the malting process, how yeast ferments and the science of beer,” Kreinheder said. Tours will start in the science center, go through the brew house and into the pub. Dan Minner, the head brewer at Ellicottville Brewing Co., is supervising

much of the brew house installation, working closely with the representatives from the companies providing the equipment. He still starts out in Ellicottville to make sure the staff knows what needs to be done. “It’s pretty neat to have such an old building come back to life,” Minner said. It started as a milk plant on the railroad. Later it was used to make King Windows and then it became the distribution center for Salamanca Beverage Corp. Minner has been working for Ellicottville Brewing Co. for 15 years. He started as a bartender and then started working in the brew house. A Cattaraugus native, he started making craft beer in Colorado before coming back to New York. He worked his way up to head brewer. While the new brew house is capable of making 180 barrels a day, it has to ferment up to two weeks, Minner said. “You’ve got to plan ahead at least a month out from the point of sale,” he said. Kreinheder is glad for the opportunity to start a new facility with the space that the Little Valley building has. “The infrastructure is just great,” he said. “There is no way we could afford to build a 75,000 square foot building. We are repurposing this building to grow our business.” It will also provide 25 to 30 good paying jobs in a county that has seen many manufacturing plants wither and close. While the first pilot or test batches will start as soon as April, the first commercial beer making and bottling should start in June.
