History[edit]

Jason Spaulding and Brett Vander Kamp, the founders of New Holland Brewing Company, grew up together in Midland, Michigan, and later attended Hope College. In college Spaulding and Vander Kamp cultivated a love of homebrewing, which would bring them together again shortly after graduation. Their business plan took two years to formulate, but once complete, the pair quickly lined up investors, and in 1996 New Holland was founded in Holland, Michigan.[1]

Originally, the duo's goal was to produce beer that was characteristically unique to Western Michigan. Their beer was well received, and the company increased production to just over 5,000 US beer barrels (590,000 l) in 2006. In 2007 the company increased production to over 7,500 US bbl (880,000 l).[2] In 2012, Brewmaster John Haggerty left New Holland to start its own brewery in Dayton, Ohio named Warped Wing. [3]

New Holland began distilling whiskey, rum and gin in 2005, and selling it in 2008.[4]
