Holland, MI – New Holland Brewing Co. (NHBC) is proud to announce the re-release of the brewery’s first beer Paleooza, Michigan-Grown Hopped Pale Ale. First brewed in 1997 by Founder & President Brett VanderKamp, Paleooza makes its return to production after a eight-year hiatus and is now made entirely with Michigan-grown Cascade hops. To celebrate the return of the beer, NHBC is hosting a pub crawl in downtown Holland.
Paleooza is NHBC’s classic pale ale, with Michigan-grown Cascade hops. Bright hoppiness and pleasant aromatics are framed with balancing sweetness of pale malts (15° Plato and 5.5% ABV). “Paleooza is very close to our heart at New Holland”, said VanderKamp. “Many of us lived on this brew for years at our original production facility. We are pleased to be brewing it again in 2013, this time with a special nod to Michigan agriculture.”
