Big Lake Brewing, Holland

Founded in 2009, we started as the brainchild of three engineers living in Holland, Michigan. Two of us were devoted home brewers for years, working in a garage with a Sabco Brewmagic and perfecting our recipes. That half barrel system eventually turned into a three barrel system in a 3000 square foot pub with sixty seats. With an emphasis on quality ingredients, consistent recipes, and a passion for quality control, our three barrel system soon turned into a seven barrel system with a small canning line.

Within three years of opening the pub, demand grew and we opened a production facility with a fifteen barrel brewhouse. A year later we moved out of the 3000 square foot pub into a 7000 square foot brewery with a full kitchen. Growth hasn’t come easy for us, but with a foundation built around quality, consistency, and a passion for good beer, Big Lake Brewing has grown more than we could have imagined and we’re excited to see what the future holds. Live with passion, love life, and DIVE IN!

  • Stopped in a few weeks ago. Big Lake Brewing is for sure one of the best spots in Holland! The inside is very nice and clean with a good waiting area. The beer was great and I loved the way they presented their flights. Good variety of beer to choose from. Pretzels and beer cheese appetizer was excellent. For dinner I got a monstrous burger called "The Hangover." Absolutely delicious. Service was also terrific and our server answered any questions we had about the food and drinks. Definitely will be back again!
  • Excellent selection of craft brews, ciders, and other adult beverages. The food is really good as well. I've had the burgers and the lobster mac and cheese. There was a lot more lobster than I expected (not a complaint). The indoor area is open and casual. The service is fast and friendly.
