Don’t miss out on an epic pub crawl in the Oregon District this Saturday featuring beers from New Holland Brewing. In an Alice in Wonderland inspired theme, attendees are encouraged to come in costume or at least hats, and there will be prizes and treats along the stops for participants. It all begins at 2pm at Thai 9 where the featured beer will be Michigan Hatter, a beer that celebrates local agriculture with its Michigan-grown Cascade hops from the Itelanau Peninsula. Bright and aromatic, with delicious malt notes underneath a citrusy showcase of hops.
Around 3pm the groups heads to Blind Bob’s for a light and refreshing Beligan style pale ale, Farmhouse Hatter, is the featured pour. By 4pm the group will meander on down to Lucky’s for some Oak Aged Hatter, and I.P.A. aged in Kentucky Barrels. which gives the beer a smooth wood character brining a new dimension to dry-hopped, aromatic hoppiness. Sometime around 5ish the crawl will arrive at Trolley Stop to try the Black Hatter, a version of Mad Hatter brewed with black malt for a dark, roasty sweetness that finishes with a strong Centennial hop character from dry hopping.
Wrapping up the pub crawl at South Park Tavern, around 6ish, guests can experience the Rye Hatter. This beer showcases it’s grain-bill, made up of rye and barley malt. The rye adds a slight spiciness to the caramel-malt base, while also creating a creamy texture. with dry-hopping creating a fresh citrus finish.
Guests are welcome to join the crawl at any stop along the way, but the first 106 guests will get an official New Holland Beer T-shirt and there will be a prize awarded for best costume somewhere along the trail.
