Hop Yard & Holland Tour - Saturday, August 31 - 11am-5pm
Join us for a special tour that you will take you to Great Lakes Hops and some of our favorite Holland breweries (Big Lake Brewing Co., Our Brewing Co. & Brewery 4 Two 4)!
At Great Lakes Hops you'll get to see first hand where they are growing hops, including new experimental hops! During our visit, hops will be at their peak growth for the season. Every beer you've ever drank has hops in it, some just have more hops than others. You will learn how hops are grown & get your hands into the experience by checking out the hops like brewers do. Great Lakes Hops will even share some taste of beers made with their hops!
Big Lake Brewing Co. has grown from a small brewery in a strip mall to the 2nd largest brewery in Holland. They brew a wide variety of excellent beers, including a wide variety of IPA's, but also excellent stouts & browns.
Our Brewing Co. has been brewing some of the most unique and experimental beers in Holland since 2012. We love the Andes Mint Chocolate Stout, and oddly enough, their Tobacco Porter is very smooth, chocolaty & tasty. Not into trying those, no problem, you'll get to choose which 4 samples you prefer. Their tap-list changes often, but one thing is for sure, you'll find very tasty beers at Our Brewing Co.
Brewery 4 Two 4 is another brewery where you can find some very unique ales, or your favorite standard ales & lagers too. Their Rye IPA is spot on, and their ginger beer taste like ice cream in ginger ale!
Tour includes 12 large samples of beer (4 at each stop) & some taste at Great Lakes Hops, a private hop yard tour at Great Lakes Hops, a private brewery tour at Our Brewing Co, and transportation to and from the breweries (& hop yard) with a knowledgeable beer tour guide.
This tour is on Saturday, August 31 - 11am-5pm
*There will be an opportunity for lunch at Big Lake Brewing Co. (2nd stop).
