New Holland Brewing Co's Beervangelist Fred Bueltmann Releases First Book

Fred Bueltmann (also known as The Beervangelist) is an owner of New Holland Brewing Co. and an outspoken, fiercely passionate champion of well-made beer and food. Well-known in the beer and food communities, Fred’s exuberant and sometimes manic quest to artfully integrate beer with food led to his first book—Beervangelist’s Guide to the Galaxy.

The book is chock-full of mouth-watering recipes and tantalizing photos, and features rants on the culture of food, drink, and entertaining. Bueltmann’s journey is one of waking up our taste buds, educating our palates, and remembering that our food and drink are meant to be enjoyed—even relished.

“Fred has created a comprehensive guide to tasting, pairing, seasonal cooking, and most importantly – drinking! From novice to pro, if you want to be a better beer drinker, this book is for you,” said Paul Kahan, Executive Chef, The Publican and James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Chef, 2013.

The Beervangelist will be attending several events and book signings in Michigan and on the East Coast in June. Catch up with him on the road at any number of events. He’ll be kicking off his tour in conjunction with the prestigious Savor event in New York City, where he’ll be hosting two salons on beer and food. For his most current schedule - you can visit his book's web page HERE or his Facebook page HERE.

If you're unable to meet up with him, you can find his book on the New Holland ONLINE STORE or at AMAZON. For a limited time, books bought through the New Holland online store will be signed by the author!

Wholesale quantities available for retailers HERE or by emailing merchandise coordinator HERE.

About New Holland Brewing Co:

New Holland Brewing Company’s deep roots in the craft industry go back to 1997. Our role as an integral member of the artisan approach is something we take seriously, yet engage lightheartedly.  We believe the art of craft lives in fostering rich experiences for our customers, through creating authentic beer, spirits and food while providing great service. Recognized for our creativity and artistry, our mission to improve the lives of craft consumers everywhere is seen in our diverse, balanced collection of beer and spirits.

New Holland brews and distills at two locations in Holland, Michigan: our production facility on the north side and our Pub & Restaurant in downtown Holland. The restaurant welcomes guests seven days a week and production tours are on Saturday afternoons.  We welcome visitors and locals alike, and appreciate the opportunity to share our artisan approach through warm hospitality and enriching education.

With just under 150 employees, New Holland Brewing Co. sells its beer and spirits across a growing regional landscape, while anchored in the upper Midwest.  In 2012, our production facility underwent substantial development including the tripling of our brewing capacity through outdoor fermentation, the addition of a centrifuge and the expansion of our Dragon’s Milk cellar. In 2013, the company is expanding its distilling capabilities, renovating the downtown Holland Pub & Restaurant and focusing on the integration of Michigan agriculture; hops, wheat and barley, into several new and existing brands.
