On the return trip home from Grand Rapids after visiting Hop Cat and Founders the night before I had a slight buzz going still so we decided to see New Holland to round out the trip. It was about Noon and there was no waiting to take a seat in the second floor of the mid sized building. The decor was full of of old brewing equipment and paraphernalia that gave it a good vibe.

Service came quickly and we ordered a couple of beers, I went for a one off Bitter to keep it on the session-able side, very clean and refreshing. After returning with our drinks we placed our orders The Dragon Wings had some good heat to them with the dry rub, but since I'm more of a fan of the sauced wings I'll say they were a 7 out of 10.

The beer selection was great, lots of unique beers you don't normally see in bottles, but I would have liked to seen more in the bottle shop in front.. ah well.

Price was pretty standard for what we ordered, no surprises. Overall I'd say it was a solid place to check out if you are in the area or passing through for lunch but not some where I'd go too far out of my way to visit. (1,107 characters)

Did the brewery tour for $10, not the brewpub, so ratings are for that. Great tour of the (ever expanding) brewery and distillery. Nice slow pace, 4 samples of 4 oz pours, plus tiny tastes of their spirits. And a logo'd pint glass at the end. Well worth the price for sure. (273 characters)

Hands down my favorite brew pub in Michigan. The service is fantastic and they also make a bunch of tasty spirits that they like to have you sample. I went back and bought many bottles of beer and knickerbocker gin and zeppelin bend whiskey. I highly recommend this place to everyone. (284 characters)

Great vibe to this place. I've been several times and the atmosphere and look it the bar/eatery area. Lots of polished wood give it a clean feel. I'm always a fan of being able to see the brewing equipment when I visit and eat at a brewery. I went last over St. Pats weekend so it was packed inside. The noise was still not over powering and there was plenty of room for all. The only knock is the limited parking downtown.

Service was spectacular given how busy they were. We got seated at the bar, ordered a few beers and food. The beers came quick and the good about 15 min after. Again being packed to the doors this was fantastic work from the kitchen area.

They had several seasonals to go along with the mainstays. They also offered 4 different cask selections as well. Dragons milk was available on tap and on cask! Very cool to see a wide variety of styles and presentations.

Overall a must visit for beer folks headed to the west side of Michigan. (963 characters)
