What’s on Tap

Overlooking the brewing facilities, our taproom allows customers a look into where the beer magic happens. It’s a great testing ground for us, and on any particular day you will find numerous products on draft available only at Founders. The unique offering of specialty beers, the laid back atmosphere, and thrice-weekly live music has helped to make our taproom a staple in the Grand Rapids community and a destination for travelers. Stop by whenever you can and experience it for yourself.

Tap selection subject to availability. Please call 616.776.1195 first to confirm!

On Sunday, May 31, 2015, we will be open to the public from Noon – 5pm. To prepare for the evening’s entertainment, the Founders Taproom & Deli will be closed to the public from 5-8pm. Those present in the Taproom at 5pm will have ample time to finish their beers, food & complete to-go purchases before vacating the Taproom, so our staff can prepare for the night’s show. At 8pm, the Taproom & Deli will re-open, and there will be a $10 cover to enter. No minors will be allowed. The Company Store will remain open until 9pm for those wishing to purchase merchandise or to-go beer.
