As a MI native every time I visit I try to work in a good brewery. I had already hit New Holland Brewery that weekend and came across this gem while out doing errands because it sits in a strip mall kinda off the beaten path. The place is very Spartan, just some wooden tables, a bar and a few... More

Great beer, knowledgeable staff. You can get food from the few restaurants near by. Try the Leroy Brown or Double L if on tap.

I had this seen on trip advisor and while we were in Holland I thought we would try it. So glad we did!!! The one thing I did not know is they do not sell food. They have Pretzels with some cheese dip you can purchase which was awesome. The bartender told us we could order from some of the... More

This was a wonderful brewery. My favorite was the citra wheat and ryco IPA. We ordered a pizza from Mancinos and my three kids ate and played cards while my wife and I enjoyed a flight. Loved the vibe of this place.

A very enjoyable place to hang out with friends. Excellent selection of beverages: beer, cider, and wine. Occasional entertainment is top notch.

And this is what a brewery atmosphere should be like. Very friendly staff and very friendly customers. They are BYOF which is awesome considering there's a great thai place right next door.

I definitely have a new place to grab a couple of beers when I'm back in the Holland area. Great beers and the fact that I can stop next door, grab a pizza and bring it in is awesome. Love the fact that they brew their own. Do yourself a favor and get the Leroy Brown
