Big Lake Brewing to Relocate to Downtown Holland


Holland, Mich. — Big Lake Holdings closed on the purchase of 13 West 7th street in Downtown Holland, the recent home of Serafina’s Bar and Grill and the former location of Via Maria. The building will serve as the new brewpub and restaurant for Big Lake Brewing currently located in the Ottawa Village Center on the North Side of Holland. This is the second expansion project for Big Lake in just six months, having recently added a new production facility on 19th Street in Holland, which increased their production capabilities from 1,000 to 3,000 barrels of beer per year.

The new space will continue to be “Brewery First” with a focus on live music, offering lunch and dinner to compliment the assortment of craft beers brewed on site. Plans include a beer hall atmosphere with a large outdoor beer garden. Renovations will begin immediately. The owners hope to open within 9-12 months adding between 40-50 full and part time jobs.

Co-Founder Travis Prueter commented: “We’re excited to be moving into the Downtown Holland area to join other great breweries and restaurants that have paved the way for a company like ours. We’re humbled at how well our product has been received by our community and look forward to increasing our awareness and connection to downtown residents and visitors.”
