Dutch-themed brewery opens
The lakeshore has another brewery.
Dutch Girl Brewery opened in Spring Lake earlier this month. The brewery was announced more than a year ago, and construction wrapped up earlier this summer.
The brewery is owned by the husband-and-wife team of Luke Finchem and Kelly Rozema Finchem.
The facility, which is located at 14964 Cleveland St., encompasses 7,500 square feet.
Dutch Girl is brewing its beer on a five-barrel system from Greenville’s Psycho Brew.
Brewer Josh Lentz created seven beers for the opening this month, including a Vienna lager, Saison, IPA, Kolsch, Double IPA, Extra Special Bitter and Dirty Boots, a beer named after the owners’ dog, Bo.
The taproom carries a variety of pre-packaged foods and offers a menu of local delivery options.
Dutch Girl also has partnered with local food trucks, which will frequently set up shop outside the brewery.
Currently, the brewery is open from noon-10 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday; noon-11 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and noon-8 p.m., Sunday.
The brewery plans to host a Dutch Girl Bier Fest later this fall.
The brewery lives up to its name through the interior décor. The tap handles are topped by wood clogs. There’s also a wooden clog collage on the taproom wall, as well as a print of Amsterdam.
