Spring Lake, Mich — On July 9th, 2016 from Noon-11pm, Dutch Girl Brewery will ring in their 1-year anniversary by throwing a barbecue party and releasing new barrel aged beers and a Raspberry Farmhouse Radler at their taproom. The event will feature a Southern style pig roast, served up with traditional barbecue side dishes. Additionally, multiple whiskey barrel aged flavor variants of the Dirty Boots Imperial Milk Stout will be making their debut.
“We’ve been warmly welcomed into this community. Our location is perfect, not only for Spring Lake residents, but for those in the Grand Rapids area, as well,” says Kelly Rozema Finchem, co-founder and “Dutch Girl” of Dutch Girl Brewery.
Dutch Girl Brewery opened up a kitchen in the month prior to their first anniversary, with head chef Aaron Shapiro cooking up gourmet sandwich, salad and appetizer options ranging from a “Brewer’s Platter” of smoked meats and cheeses, to a hickory pork chop sandwich, and a lobster panini. In addition to the new food offerings, Dutch Girl maintains 11 rotating beers on tap, a maple syrup hard cider and red and white wine, all made in-house. Barrel aged beers are available periodically throughout the year and for special occasions.
“We really wanted to make sure we established a solid foundation with our beer styles, before adding food to complement our beverage options. We brought on our head chef, Aaron, to bring his wide-array of culinary experience to develop a unique menu for our brewery and the larger Spring Lake area,” says Finchem.
About Dutch Girl Brewery
Dutch Girl Brewery is the brainchild of Luke and Kelly Finchem, located in Spring Lake, MI. After 3 years of planning, Dutch Girl made its debut in July of 2015, premiering ales and lagers brewed with traditional ingredients, as well as some curious experimentations. Head brewer, Josh Lentz, concocts recipes derived from various countries, ranging from the traditional German Kolsch and Altbier, to an English ESB (extra special bitter) and IPA, to an American Pale Ale and Double IPA and an unorthodox Belgian Tripel IPA. Head Chef Aaron Shapiro serves up a mix of traditional and eclectic
New-American cuisine in their recently opened kitchen. Dutch Girl Beers can be found on draft throughout the state.
