Thanks again to all our great customers!

A thing of beauty
By Steve Siciliano

Another customer appreciation sale has come and gone and by the looks of our bare shelves and decimated warehouse the wonderful hobby of making home-produced beverages is showing no signs of fading in the West Michigan area.

While we were rockin' and rollin' all week, business just exploded on Saturday. There was a prolonged stretch during the afternoon when I was amazed at how many customers were shopping throughout our now-not-so-little store and I kept thinking how crowded it would have been if we hadn’t expanded. Out the back door of the 900-square-foot expansion Barb was busy cooking up the incomparable German wieners from Frank’s Market that many folks enjoyed with healthy doses of my father’s now-famous homemade sauerkraut. The cold draught root beer was, as usual, also a hit.

Now that all the busyness involving the sale week is over we will be turning our attention to upcoming activities. Starting next Saturday the 24th and for the next four Saturdays after that we will be in the back parking lot helping folks make wine and cider. Interested enthusiasts may use our crusher/destemmer free of charge during the hours of 9am and 4pm on those days. We will also be launching our on-line store sometime during the next two weeks.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who stopped by during the sale week. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful customers.
