New Holland Dragon's Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout

New Holland Brewing Dragon’s Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout

Your vote counts!

Your vote counts!First brewed in 2001, New Holland Brewing describes Dragon’s Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout as, “A stout with roasty malt character intermingled with deep vanilla tones, all dancing in an oak bath.” Sometimes flowery descriptions provided by breweries fail to materialize once one sips the beer, but not Dragon’s Milk. Although all beer ratings are subjective, most rate Dragon’s Milk highly, with good reason. Dragons may breathe fire, but the immense salvation provided by the mere sight of this delicious beer will douse any…

Founders Brewing Mosaic Promise

Founders Brewing Mosaic Promise

Your vote counts!

Your vote counts!One hop. That’s all you need. Founders Brewing Mosaic Promise, a single mosaic-hopped brew, marks another wonderful creation from a brewery that already has several hall-of-fame type beers on its resume, such as Founders KBS, Harvest Ale, and All Day IPA. You may have noticed that Mosaic hops are all the rage lately. If not for the influx of sours and Gose beers on the market, Mosaic hops might be all anyone discusses. The new hop strain, developed roughly in 2012, is a…

A View of Michigan from the Other Side of the Lake

The U.P., apple and peach picking, wine, four Great Lakes, those hated Red Wings…and craft beer. I’m a Chicagoan that loves Michigan. The eastern side of Lake Michigan has my son’s footprints in its sand. Many apples have made their way from Michigan to Chicago via my car. And, Michigan is a big reason why I love craft beer. Back when I was a mere seedling that had not fully seen the light when it came to craft-beer goodness, I found Michigan beer. If you…
