We’d been working on developing a cutting edge beer for two years or so, and we were able to perfect the recipe recently. Unfortunately, we ran into some rights issues with the working name we’d been using. But we’re brewers and craft beer geeks. When we run into obstacles, we see opportunities. We realized this [...]
We have the “original Red” painting hanging up in the brewery (above). It’s the basis for the label of our Red’s Rye PA, which started as a taproom-only beer for a few years and went through a few name changes before becoming what it is today. This painting was done from a photograph of [...]
Bottles of Founders beer will be available in the NYC area starting March 26. Bottles of KBS will be available (in limited quantities) starting April 2. Check our beer locator to see where we are currently distributed and to find contact information for our distributors if you’re interested in locating a particular beer.
March heralds in that time of year when even people who don’t know the difference between double dribbling and traveling fill out brackets and dutifully watch the NCAA men’s basketball tournament (or at least the highlights, so they know who won). A few media outlets have decided to build upon everyone’s bracket fever by producing [...]
Yes, there’s a new addition to our in-house tap list: Crimson Dynamo. This beer is a session red (4.7% ABV) bursting with flavor: amber caramel malts are balanced by Simcoe and Cascade hops. And here’s a pint, on our bar, in all of its glory (and ready for you to try!):
Bourbon barrels filled with KBS have been aging in the caves beneath our fine city of Grand Rapids for a year and were delivered to our production facility yesterday (see above). The official distribution release date for KBS is the Ides of March (3/15). However, we’re having our KBS release party in our taproom three [...]
All of our ingredients and processes for the beers we distribute are vegan friendly with two exceptions: Breakfast Stout and KBS both contain chocolate. Our head brewer, Jeremy, does use some honey in taproom beers from time to time (e.g., Honey Wheat). Image thanks to Phil Dokas, who added it to our Flickr pool.

As our internal expansion and improvements round third base, we’re happy to announce that the Taproom will be open at 4pm on Tuesday, January 4th. Unfortunately, we will be without the services of our beloved delicatessen. It is tentatively scheduled to re-open at 11am on Thursday, January 6th. We apologize for the inconvenience. Tuesday’s Open-Mic [...]
Our Breakfast Stout has been quite the hit lately with foodies. We’ve compiled a few of the recent articles that mention it as an ingredient in a recipe or as a perfect pairing. All of these would work well for a holiday get together. DRAFT Magazine suggests pairing our Breakfast Stout with gingerbread cookies. The [...]
