New Holland Banana Coconut Dragon’s Milk will join the “Reserve” lineup of Dragon’s Milk releases this fall.
The Holland, Michigan based brewery’s Dragon’s Milk is easily one of the most iconic barrel-aged imperial stouts in America. Dating as far back as 2014, the brewery started releasing variants to this stout under the “Reserve” moniker. The series has gotten more and more interesting ever since.

The plantains were hand peeled, sliced and caramelized, alongside the addition of dark malts for a rich base. The end result is a complex, flavorful porter that is labor of love.
El Bizarrón is the hero of a Cuban folktale. A simple worker who outsmarted the devil, winning his freedom as well as a load of silver, kicked to the heavens loaded on his faithful burro, way up high where he knew the devil couldn’t follow.
