New Holland Brewing Company’s first Dragon’s Milk Reserve release of 2020 will be available starting in January.
The Dragon’s Milk Reserve series puts a spin on the brewery’s popular bourbon barrel-aged stout. This first variation in 2020 was aged for three months in rum barrels imported from Jamaica, and finished on over 2,500 pounds of coconut, 1,000 pounds of toasted hazelnut and 200 pounds of chocolate.
“The flavors of toasted coconut, hazelnut and chocolate pair amazingly with the sweet and warming flavor notes imparted by the rum barrel,” says New Holland Brewing Company Founder and President Brett VanderKamp.
The beer clocks in at 12.5% ABV. It will be available on tap and for purchase in 4-packs of 12-oz. bottles at New Holland’s pubs in Grand Rapids and Holland starting January 23. It will hit shelves at retail locations in 42 states starting in February.
