• Welcome Brian Proctor - Our New Sous Chef at the Pub on 8th!

    New Holland Brewing Co. | Emily Haines We're excited to introduce our new sous chef, Brian Proctor to the kitchen! I was able to take a minute to chat with Brian in between shifts and have gleaned a little about the man behind the apron... EH: So, Brian - great to have you at New Holland. Can you tell us a little bit about your position? BP: Well, I am the Sous Chef, which translates to under chef. I am second in command. I am responsible for features and help with menu creation, along with management duties.BrianProctor_FB59096D-6342-4ECC-9A3E-F69D4148722E EH: So, how did you land at New Holland? What's your background? BP: I left Reserve Wine & Food in the spring to take on my next challenge. After looking around for a couple months, I decided New Holland was the right fit. I was the Sous Chef at Reserve and had the privilege to work with Matt Millar there and was there for his back-to-back James Beard semi-finalist nominations.

  • Bonnaroo Broo'ers Fest 2014 - A First-timer's Re-cap

    New Holland Brewing | Taylor Remy “Morning,” calls out a cheerful brewer from Good People Brewing Co. as he shuffles by my campsite on his way to the bathrooms on the far side of the field. I wave, also wiping the sweat from my brow as the heat starts to soak in despite the early hour. The smell of coffee hits my nose as I turn to see the Lagunitas Brewing Company sales team crawling from their small cluster of tents. Banners from Terrapin Beer Company, Woodchuck Cider, and Sweetwater BrewingBonnaro1 tumble in the gentle morning breeze. With champions of flavor all around me, it would be easy to convince myself that I have joined a craft beer commune, but the truth is all the more exciting.

  • New Holland Kicks Off Stop and Taste Harvest Dinner Series by Going Straight to the Source

    New Holland Brewing Co. | Emily Haines New Holland Brewing Co. will kick off its collaborative Stop & Taste Harvest Dinner Series with Grange in Ann Arbor, MI on July 24 at 6:30pm. Staff from the brewery and the restaurant will tour area farms, visiting with farmers to source ingredients for their pending multi-course dinner. The menu and pairings is inspired by the ingredients and the season, ensuring a dinner that is “from the moment.” The trip, dinner and pairings are orchestrated by Grange’s Executive Chef, Brandon Johns the New Holland’s “Beervangelist” Fred Bueltmann. Grange_HarvestDinner_Poster_2014 “The format is inspired by relationships we’ve developed with local farms and the talented restaurants who feature them,” says Bueltmann. “These dinners invite people to connect with the ongoing harvest all around us, and the beauty of our agriculture.  By designing dishes that showcase the ingredients in their peak moments, while artfully integrating beer, we engage the very best parts of eating and drinking seasonally.”

  • Session Beer Series - Because Some Conversations Last Longer Than a Pint Does

    New Holland Brewing Co. | Emily Haines We've heard it before - "Craft beer is too heavy"; "I can only have one or I'll fall over"; "Holy High ABV, Batman!" We get it - and hey, we've got our share of deep, rich beers that roll in at 11% ABV. But we also believe in great session beers. Session beers come from a long-standing tradition of sitting down with your mates over pints and SessionBeer copyswapping stories for a spell. Our session beers are brewed to go easy on the ABV (Alcohol By Volume), but not on the flavor. In January, we announced at our annual Wholesaler Summit that we'd be offering three great beers in a newly-defined "Session Beer" category. New Holland's very first beer - Paleooza Pale Ale (4.4% ABV); Sundog Amber Ale (4.5% ABV) and Full Circle Kolsch (4.2% ABV).
