An effective community gathering place on a Saturday afternoon to watch college football and shop in downtown Holland.
This is a large facility with at least three restaurant rooms, a long bar with with two dozen tables and a swag/bottleshop. And all filled with happy customers.
So the Vibe and New Holland's longevity (almost 25 years) are all good... well above average.

I should not make a comprehensive judgment of their beer. I had reviewed only two of their seven beers; indicating that I'd had five pre-BA (for me, pre-2016.) For today's flight of four (three of which I had rated, but not reviewed), so I am glad to be able to give more proper reviews. All that qualified ... I do not consider the Quality of New Holland beers to be much above average given that they are 25 years old. (Instead of focussing on just beers, New Holland also has an extensive list of distilled spirits.)

Service was fine. The bartender was very patient with all my questions, despite having a full house.

In principle for Selection, I don't give high points to houses who offer no other breweries. My main complaint is this lack of competitive comparisons to a crafters primary audience can often result in a modest efforts to improve quality. This also may explain why New Holland's quality has not grown with its years.

Nonetheless, New Holland's brewery has served a good purpose for reviving the downtown and its citizens !

Enjoyed the Pub on 8th, but I didn't see that listed here. Lots of space, great choice on beers to include crowlers and an excellent food menu. It gets a little loud with a long wait, but definitely worth it.

It has a woody and a touch of smoke.
Coffee comes out slightly with a hint of something “complexed” ;)

Nice location downtown Holland. I was here in the early afternoon so it wasn't busy. Service wasn't the best but I would give them another try as it could have just been a one time thing.

Pretty good atmosphere, but usually very busy. Great beer selection and food menu. LPT: Order a "Dead Poet", which is half Dragon's Milk and half Poet.

Go every year to beer fest. Great atmosphere for family and kids. Their anniversary was this year and put on an awesome event. Food and service is good. Lot of things to do in town and around brewery.
