A West Michigan brewery is celebrating another milestone.

Big Lake Brewing in Holland is expanding its brewing capacity by 50% to meet demand for its portfolio of beer.

The brewery will soon install two new 30-barrel fermenters and a new brite tank, increasing its overall output to 5,000 beer barrels per year.

"We are grateful to our fans and everyone who has picked up a Big Lake and shared our passion for great craft beer,” said Travis Prueter, co-founder, Big Lake Brewing.

Since its inception in 2013, Big Lake has more than quadrupled its capacity.

Big Lake Brewing opened on Butternut Drive in Holland Township and began expanding in 2016 with the purchase of a production facility in Holland, which tripled its capacity.

In 2017, the company purchased its current taproom at 13 W. 7th St. in downtown Holland, opening the 200-seat taproom with an outdoor patio and launching full lunch and dinner menus.
