Holland, Michigan-based craft brewery and distiller, New Holland Brewing, announces the release of their 20th Anniversary Ale, a beer specifically brewed to commemorate their 20th year in the brewing industry. This beer release is the culmination of their year-long celebration.
“For the past 20 years, New Holland has worked hard to create remarkable beers for our customers to enjoy,” said New Holland President and Founder, Brett VanderKamp. “Each brew is thoughtfully crafted, inspired by the stories around us, and this 20th Anniversary Ale is no exception.”
The 20th Anniversary Ale is a rum-barrel aged strong ale, and comes in at a whopping 20% ABV. Despite the high alcohol content, this brew is smooth and warming with notes of vanilla and the spice of rum.
“We aged this ale in rum barrels for almost a year, and the results are phenomenal. The rum character really shines though and complements the beer,” said Jason Salas, Brewery Production Manager.
This ale will be extremely limited in quantity, and available only at select retailers in Michigan, in wax-dipped 22oz bottles. The official release date is Black Friday—November 24th. New Holland’s brewpub locations, Pub on 8th in Holland and The Knickerbocker in Grand Rapids, will be offering bottle sales as well as the only draft pours in the nation.
