Holland’s Big Lake Brewing has moved to its new downtown location at 13 W 7th St. The building has a brewing history having formerly served as home to Backstreet Brewing and Via Maria Trattoria. Most recently, the building was previously occupied by Serafina’s Italian Grille. Big Lake Brewing has made significant renovations to the location and those familiar with the past breweries and restaurants will be impressed by the transformation that has take place inside.
Part of the new expansion for Big Lake Brewing is a kitchen with a full menu including salads, snacks, pizza, and sandwiches. Starters include loaded tots and chicken & waffle croquette with entrees including beer mac & cheese and citrus cured grilled salmon. The food all pairs amazingly well with Big Lake Brewing’s stellar lineup of beer including such favorites as their Ryecoe IPA, Darkstar Stout, and Chinook Strong Ale. Beer is also available to-go including cans of the mainstay options as well as bomber bottles of barrel-aged specialty releases.
Along with the move into the new location, Big Lake Brewing has expanded its hours and is currently open at 11 a.m. 7 days a week with hours until 9 p.m. on Sunday, 11 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and midnight on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
