We’re counting down the days until the 10th annual Founders Fest, our annual celebration of beer and live music! We’ll be shutting down the streets surrounding the brewery, bringing in some kickass live music, local food vendors and artists – and, of course, we will be pouring beer. A lot of it. Advanced tickets are now available for a discounted ticket price of $40 – get yours here.
This year’s lineup is one of the best yet, with headliners Umphrey’s McGee and Blues Traveler setting the tone. Hear a few tracks from each of the live acts we’ll be hosting on our stage come June 17, 2017:
In a lot of ways, All Day IPA is the ultimate “jack of all trades” beer. Full of flavor yet light in body, it satisfies an array of palates, moods, adventures and more.
And, it’s also damn good when used as an ingredient in dessert. Seriously. Case in point: our Culinary Director’s recipe for All Day IPA Lemon Bars. Creamy, citrusy, bright and buttery, these will convince even the most skeptical of friends that beer belongs in dessert. The recipe is relatively easy to execute too, so you may even convince yourself that you’re a pretty good baker.
Photographers! Adventurers! Craft beer lovers!
Join our education team this summer for our upcoming Palate Exploration events:
On May 11, we’re thrilled to have Jenna Arcidiacono, owner and chef of Amore Trattoria Italiana back for our first-ever veggie palate exploration! If Chef Jenna is at the helm we’re willing to wager that even the most devout carnivore will walk away satisfied.
On June 1 we’re going NUTS! We’re going to be pairing different varieties of nuts with our friends at Ferris Coffee. We’ll be trying a few different varieties as well as seeing what happens when you add various flavorings to the mix.
Dave and I have always considered our taproom the heart of the brewery, the place where the Founders culture and spirit is most alive, the thing that consistently reminds us of why we embarked on this journey in the first place. It is there where titles are checked at the door and you can rub elbows with some unlikely characters (and find you have more in common with them than not). It is a place where a love of great beer, delicious food and a good time is all that’s needed to enjoy. It’s our home and all are welcome in it.
What has more coastline than our home state of Michigan, over half of the world’s glaciers and a thirst for quality beer? Well, Alaska, of course, and we are happy to announce we are headed that way come May 2017!
We are happy to announce the third release in our Barrel-Aged Series lineup:
Twenty years ago our Co-Founders, Mike and Dave, dropped everything to chase their dreams. Now, we’re looking back on the moments that have defined our twenty-year journey best. Those stories, told through art, video and more, are rolling out throughout the year at foundersbrewing.com/20th.
Great news: there will be even more reasons to love Centennial IPA as it will soon be available in 15-pack cans! Yup, that’s right, it will join the ranks of All Day IPA, PC Pils, Mosaic Promise and Azacca IPA as yet another fantastic beer to be made available in this format.
