Never Regret

Making A Tough Decision

Sometimes, life’s best decisions are made strictly out of necessity. In the early days, Co-Founders Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers were willing to be patient when it came to success. But the brewery’s third (and only other) employee was getting a little sick of seeing his paychecks bounce. In order to make payroll, a drastic measure had to be taken — one that you can still taste in every Founders beer to this day. Mike and Dave sold the brewery’s filter for some quick cash. The risk paid off. The employee got paid. And Founders unintentionally joined the unfiltered beer movement.
