Jean-Francois Paquay and his sons, Jean, 16, and Benjamin, 13, were in their native Belgium. They were wrapping up a four-day visit in order to get Paquay’s passport stamped so his ability to live and work in the United States would be valid.

In March, the Woodwright Brewery opened on Douglas Avenue. It rose out of the Dunedin Woodwright shop. Grant Painter, the owner of the shop, said it was something of a natural transition going from woodworking to brewing.
