hen his efforts at beer making fell flat, Pat Ayers didn’t get discouraged, he just tried something else.
“I just wasn’t good at it,” says Ayers of Jim Thorpe. “It tasted good, but I couldn’t get any head on it.”
Since beer wasn’t his calling, he decided to try his hand at making wine.
Before moving to the area, he and his wife, Marge, lived in Willow Grove. While at Keystone Homebrew Supply in Montgomeryville, he came upon kits for winemaking.
