New Beer Releases

Sumatra Mountain Brown

The latest addition to our lineup of coffee beers

There’s no denying we love the rich flavor of coffee. This time we’ve used Sumatra coffee to create an imperial brown ale that’s nothing short of decadent. Find this latest addition to our specialty lineup locally using our beer finder or mobile app

This One’s for You, Michigan

Palm Reader pale ale, with proceeds to support efforts to restore the Grand River

Available for a limited time, Palm Reader is a tribute to our beautiful home state. It’s made with Michigan-grown Crystal and Zuper-Saazer hops. Derived from Saaz, a traditional noble hop hailing from the Czech Republic, these Zuper-Saazer hops are grown locally at Hop Head Farms.

Proceeds from the sale of this beer are going to support Grand Rapids Whitewater, an organization focused on restoring and putting the rapids back in the Grand River.

Read about why this cause is so important to our Co-Founders and team.

A Taste of What’s to Come

Blood, Sweat and Barrel-Aged Beer

A summary of our history and a look at what’s to come

“One could argue that Founders was literally founded at the worst possible moment, and their early offerings didn’t exactly set the local beer community on fire, either.”

It wasn’t always pretty, but here we are. Jim Vorel of Paste Magazine recently joined us during the weekend of our 15th Annual Black Party, a celebration of our darkest beers. Jim toured our facility, got to know the team and sampled a few barrel-aged beers we’re experimenting with. Here’s his take on it all (including a sneak peek at the barrel-aged beers to come).

The Expansion Continues…

Walls Up! 

Expanding our current location in downtown Grand Rapids

The walls of our latest expansion are going up – and that means the footprint at our 235 Grandville location will now fill an entire city block. Given our humble beginnings, this continued growth still blows our mind.

At the same time, we’re hard at work transforming a massive space just a mile south of our current location. The new building, shown below, will be used for warehousing and distribution, but it will also be the home of our second brewery, which will focus exclusively on the barrel-aged, experimental, high-gravity and specialty beers that we’ve become known for. That means many of our beloved limited, specialty and Backstage Series beers will be brewed here – but it’s also a space for us to experiment with new, innovative styles of beer. Hell yeah!

What’s Cookin’?

New Recipes to Try at Home

The best part? You can drink the leftover beer

There’s no denying it, we’re as Midwestern as they come – and fewer things scream “The Midwest” than a bowl of cheesy beer soup. Our go-to All Day IPA Beer Cheese Soup recipe.

Founders 7


Here it is, the recipe for the best damn chicken wings known to man: They’re coated with a glaze made with both Dirty Bastard mustard AND BLiS pure maple syrup aged in bourbon barrels.

Like we said, best wings ever. Check out that recipe here

About The Author

PR / Marketing Intern

I am a sports fanatic, music lover, outdoor enthusiast and beer advocate born and raised in sunny San Diego, CA. While I am not out exploring San Diego’s craft beer scene, I can be found hanging out at the beach with friends or attending southern California’s many live music events. My passion for craft beer was inherited from my father while home brewing together in their garage. I continued to share his passion for craft beer with friends while attending college in Los Angeles, where I was able to explore the craft beer scene outside of San Diego. In the future, I hope to be involved in Marketing/ Event Planning for the craft beer industry so I can spread my love and passion for beer with the larger San Diego community. I am an avid sports fan and can be seen sharing a pint with other aliens at local Padre and Charger games!
