Restaurant/bar in the heart of Holland. Butch's is not quite sure what it wants to be with a bar in the back, a wine and beer store in the middle and a sit down restaurant in the front. Menu looked good but didn't eat, wine selection looked allright but the beer selection was very good. You can't go wrong with a store that stocks entire Chimay, Ommegang, Bell's, Great Lakes and Founders line-up along with he usual suspect of English and German imports. The great thing about Butch's DD is that the entire selection is in great glass panelled cooler. Beer is weel-cared for. Prices are a little bit high but not too bad given upscale nature of the place and investment in cooler's.
Worth a stop if in Holland.

When I was checking out the downtown of Holland and the area where New Holland Brewery was going to move, I found this place. It was like a deli where they made sandwiches and such for you that you could eat there or take away. What was also promoted in there was there wine and beer selection. The layout reminded me a bit of a bigger Europa in my neighborhood. This place had more craft beers like Chimays, Unibroues, and some other Belgians while rounding it out with a good selection of Michigan beers. While the focal point was still mainly on wine, it was a good quick place to grabe a bite to eat after checking out the town and college and having some nice beer to take home.
