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.

Love traveling up to Michigan to get away from Chicago once in awhile. This is one of our favorite places to relax. How can you beat fresh Dragon's Milk on tap. What could be better?Liked the feel of the place, it was clean and laid back when we got there midday.I love pretty much everything they offer. Food was pretty good too. Good service, great beer,and great place to hang out.

On the way back from KBS Day 2013, we took a slightly different route home to stop by New Holland.

The Atmosphere is nice inside. They reside in downtown Holland, MI, and it reminds me a bit of Arcadia in that the location is large and resembles more of a Rock Bottom type atmosphere than your typical smallish brewpub.

The Quality was good. I haven't had anything from New Holland that has really stood out to me, but they make quality beer.

The Service was what you'd expect. Friendly, helpful, and prompt with bringing orders to your table.

The Selection is solid, and what sets them apart a bit is the fact that they distill their own liquor as well, so you can try some of that as well, plus you can bring a few bottles home.

They have a Food menu, but I didn't try anything as I wasn't hungry. If I stop in here again, I'll make sure to order something as it looked pretty good.

Overall it was definitely a positive experience, but since nothing they brew really stands out to me, I wouldn't be motivated to specifically make a trip here. However, since it's on the way to/from Founders for me, I'm sure I'll stop in again.
