JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (March 28, 2016) – Jim Holler, guitar luthier and owner of Trinity Guitars, has always been a supporter of the greater Jamestown community and the arts. This month, Holler made a donation to Infinity in the form of a 12 string guitar, a wonderful and unique musical addition for the students at the Infinity Center. This is just another item in a long string of donations that Holler makes annually to the organization since opening his guitar shop on West Third Street in 2009.

Holler says, “The youth of our community are really one of our most valuable resources, and the services that Infinity provides for them are important. Having a positive influence on youth is something that everyone should try to do. The arts are certainly something that have a positive influence on people.”

Something very unique has been brewing in Buffalo for nearly three years, and this “wild ale” is about to be unleashed on local beer enthusiasts!

This particular brewing adventure dates back to the summer of 2013, before Big Ditch Brewing Company opened its doors at 55 East Huron St. in downtown Buffalo. Hoping to promote the brewery, Big Ditch President Matt Kahn and Head Brewer Corey Catalano visited the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market on two occasions to hand out a few trinkets and conduct home brewing demonstrations.
