Charleston Beer Exchange will feature two rare beers this Tuesday, both from New Holland Brewing out of Holland, Michigan.  Here's the scoop from the CBX blog:

From New Holland Brewing Company, out of Holland, Michigan, we are thrilled to have Dragon's Milk Ale Aged in Oak Barrels and Pilgrim's Dole Wheat Wine!  Both of these wonderful beers are extremely rare to find on draft let alone having them both at once.

Dragon's Milk weighs in at 9% ABV and is aged in used 1st and 2nd fill Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels which give this stout-like beer wonderful depths of vanilla and oak.  Pilgrim's Dole weighs in at a whopping 11% ABV and is referred to as a "Wheat Wine" by the brewery.  A kind of barleywine-style ale but brewed using 50% wheat.  This beer is then barrel aged in the used barrels that have previously held Dragon's Milk!  Both of these big beers are world class!  Don't miss the chance to try them.

Taking a look at the numbers, oak-aged Dragon's Milk has a B+ from beeradvocate, and a 95 from ratebeer.   Pilgrim's Dole also scored a B+ with the BA crowd (A- from the Alstroms themselves) and an 85 from ratebeer.

You can get your fill with CBX at 14 Exchange Street downtown.
