Brewery releases IPAs
A growing West Michigan brewery is celebrating summer with two new beers.
Big Lake Brewing in Holland has released two summer-themed IPAs.
Lake King is an American IPA brewed with Columbus hops, which presents a lemony flavor.
Camper is a New England IPA with citrus-forward hops and a hazy color.
“We take our inspirations from Michigan’s amazing natural resources and outdoor activities and combine what makes them great with the beers we like to drink,” said Travis Prueter, co-founder, Big Lake Brewing.
“We love the pride and the connection our customers feel when they drink a beer named after a favorite activity or place in our beautiful state.”
Lake King and Camper are now in distribution across the entire state: in retail stores through Imperial Beverage and on draft in bars and restaurants.
Big Lake also announced this month a 50% brewing expansion, with two new 30-barrel fermenters and a new brite tank, increasing its overall output to 5,000 barrels per year.
Since opening in 2013, Big Lake has grown its capacity more than 400 percent and recently landed at No. 46, based on beer sales volume, on the Brewers Association's list of the 50 fastest-growing independent and craft breweries in the U.S.
