New Holland Brewing Plans $1M expansion

New Holland Brewing plans to invest $1 million to enhance the interior of its downtown Holland pub house (66 E. 8th St.) and create a 3,000-square-foot beer garden. Work has begun on the indoor upgrades while the last details of the beer garden are ironed out with the Holland Planning Commission.

Interior renovations of two new family bathrooms, an expanded back bar area, and a larger kitchen will add behind-the-scenes conveniences for customers. But perhaps the two most anticipated amenities that will create the most impact on customers are increasing the number of beer taps from 28 to 42 and expanding a small rear patio from 40 seats to a 100-seat beer garden.

"My guess is we'll have 20 to 25 beers on tap most of the time, and some of our best sellers will have double taps," says Director of Chaos Dave White (VP of restaurant operations). White adds that a six-foot-high concrete and metal decorative wall will surround the beer garden. It will feature artistic impressions embedded into the concrete. The landscaping will include an array of hops to add ambience to the space.

White says the indoor renovations will be done by March; the beer garden should be completed by May 1, in time for Tulip Time. New Holland Brewing will stay open during renovations.
