The Knickerbockers were losing. The New York Baseball League was pulling further ahead with each inning, but the Knickerbockers star line-up remained on the bench, soaking in the sun and enjoying the day.
The year was 1846, and it was a much different time for baseball in the United States. Teams didn’t care so much about batting averages or RBI’s. It was all about the love of the game, and having the leisure time to play it. The traditional champagne dinners after the last inning didn’t hurt so much either. Baseball players were the Stop & Taste champions of their day.

If you live in Southwest Michigan, there's a chance you've seen a raven-haired songstress in throwback wardrobe standing on her standup bass. If you haven't, well, you know you've still got some more livin' to do.
We here at New Holland really believe in “the art of craft” and I thought it would be interesting to talk about some of the ways that fine artists like New Holland-favorite, Delilah DeWylde (from Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys) crosses over and connects with craftmen/artisans like the brewers and distillers of New Holland.
EH: Tell me a little bit about your connection to New Holland Brewing Co.
DD: I first visited NHBC in 1996 or 1997. I was intrigued about the idea of a brewery; I had never been to one before! I was really impressed that they didn't let anyone smoke inside the building- they were the first place (that I knew of) that did that.
Anyway! At that time, I was playing in a band called "Chasing Our Tale", and I convinced the owners to let us play there. Years later I connected with Fred (Bueltmann) and the Lost Boys started playing in the current location.
