There are two breweries I would suggest in Hudsonville, which is halfway between Holland and Grand Rapids. White Flame and Pike 51. They are only a block from eachother. All of my suggestions don't bottle (well, Pike 51 and White Flame have done like 100 bottle one-offs before) and they are all pretty unique and good.
In the greater Grand Rapids/Holland area we have like 14+ breweries, and I hate to say it, but I think New Holland is one of my least favorite of the bunch. Not that they are bad, but there's a lot of good beer in Beer City USA!
Ive been to A Big Lake and in Holland and would recommend a stop there. Also, odd side ales is just 25 min to the north.
