•Michigan’s New Holland Brewing Company has unveiled four special “reserve batches” of its popular year-round Dragon’s Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout. The release includes four variations on the style—Dragon’s Milk Reserve With Coffee & Chocolate, Reserve With Raspberries, Reserve With Toasted Chilies and Reserve Triple Mash. New Holland says the original Dragon’s Milk, first introduced in 2001 as an annual single-batch release, is now its largest-selling year-round beer. The 2015 Dragon’s Milk reserves are available in four-packs and on draft. This year, New Holland has renovated its production facility for a second time to expand its Dragon’s Milk cellar that can hold the equivalent of 4,850 beer barrels.
