On par with our incredible summers, fall in West Michigan is tough to beat. Leaf color tours, the warm glow of campfires and the roar of fans watching college football signal the turn of our favorite season. There’s a deep-rooted belief here at New Holland Brewing that life is found in savored moments, which are enhanced by the perfect beer. Every one of our beers captures a flavor, harvest and moment in time that we hope you can taste and appreciate with us.
