Class 1

  • Ferris Nitro Cold Brew Coffee (non-alcoholic) NA %
    Naturally sweet with a smooth nitro finish, Ferris Cold Brew is the elevated coffee you’ve been looking for. Similar to some of your Founders favorites, this coffee comes together for a rich, creamy mouthfeel.
  • All Day IPA 4.7 %
    Our classic session IPA
  • All Day Chill Day 4.8 %
    All Day Chill Day is a refreshingly crisp Cold IPA (IPA fermented at colder temperatures than a traditional ale) brewed with an assemblage of hops for a subtle yet flavorful punch of pineapple, floral and lemon notes.
  • Centennial IPA 7.2 %
    Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry hopping. This one’s sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter.
  • Cherrywood Smoked Brown Ale 6.25 %
    A smokey sweet brown ale! Some BBQ, but also sporting complex malt flavors: cola, caramel, nuts, wood—and surprisingly: cherry.
  • Dirty Bastard 8.5 %
    Scotch-Style Ale.
  • Lil'Red 4.75 %
    A session red IPA brewed with Oats, Wheat, Crystal and Caramel malts for a deep crimson color. Crystal, Azacca, and Mosaic hops went into the boil and a Centennial and Chinook Dry Hop completes this hop forward red ale.
  • Mas Agave Strawberry 4.5 %
    Más Agave Premium Hard Seltzer is a refreshing foray into the future made with blue agave nectar, cane sugar, real fruit juice and a dash of sea salt for good measure.
  • Nitro Frangelic Stout 4.5 %
    This is oatmeal stout flavored with Frangelic Coffee!
  • Nitro Oatmeal Stout 4.5 %
    A Founders take on a classic style, brewed with flaked oats, chocolate malt, roasted barley and a healthy helping of Nugget hops, Oatmeal Stout is nitrogen-infused to give it an extra smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
  • Oktoberfest 6 %
    Blink and you're in Bavaria. We went all in on tradition with our Oktoberfest, using imported German malts and hops with a beautiful lager yeast for the finish. This one completely adheres to Reinheitsgebot. Prost!
  • Plays Well IPA 7.6 %
    A collab with our friends at Haas and hop grower Diane Gooding featuring her proprietary Idaho Gem hops in both extract and pellets with Chinook and Cascade. Crystal malts give a rich amber color and medium body.
  • Porter 6.5 %
    Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders’ robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter.
  • Red’s Rye IPA (Draft) 6.6 %
    The Overwhelming Employee and Mug Club favorite. This rye-based, red IPA, showcases the beauty that the Amarillo hop can be.
  • Solid Gold 4.4 %
    Our take on a classic, Solid Gold is a drinkable premium lager brewed with the highest quality ingredients.
  • $3 Pint Special - Tropical Stout 6.5 %
    A semi-sweet summertime stout with a sultry tropical side: citrus, orange peel, pineapple, and milk chocolate.
  • Unraveled IPA 6.6 %
    We unraveled some of our favorite American hops to get to the juicy goodness inside. Dry-hopped with traditional hop pellets along with lupulin powder, an innovative hop product that separates lupulin from the hop flower, Unraveled IPA is incredibly flavorful and aromatic. Wheat and oats form a smooth backdrop to carry all those wonderful hop characteristics, while the pour is beautifully clear.

Class 2

  • 4 Giants IPA 9.2 %
    We’ve made a lot of imperial IPAs over the years and, in turn, have had a lot of arguments over which one is the absolute best. So, to settle this once and for all, our brewers mashed up four of our favorite recipes into the ultimate imperial IPA. 4 Giants boasts aggressive bitterness balanced by a malty, sweet backbone while huge aromatics come courtesy of the seven American hop varieties.
  • 4 Giants & The Haze of Destiny 8.4 %
    A big, bold Imperial Hazy IPA, 4 Giants and The Haze Of Destiny is smoothed out by copious amounts of oats and wheat to create an inviting yet mysterious haze.
  • Daycap Lime - Official Beer of ArtPrize 2022 5 %
    Daycap Lime is specially crafted to deliver the uniquely tart and citrusy flavor of a tequila barrel-aged lime gose at an easy-to-drink lower ABV–making it the ideal beer to kick off your weekend or round out a long day.
  • Grapefruit Radler - Social Impact Tap 3.1 %
    A light and refreshing German style beer that packs huge citrus flavor into a low ABV lager. It’s as refreshing on a hot summer day as it is on a crisp fall evening and a great option if your friends want you to stick around for one more pint!
  • Harvest Ale - Mothership Installment #24 7.8 %
    Each fall, our brew house looks more like a greenhouse as thousands of pounds of wet hop cones arrive within hours of being picked by some of our favorite local hop growers. Acting quickly, we then load up these wet hops into what will become Harvest Ale – an impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes. Our ode to the beauty that is the wet, American hop.
  • Hazacca 6.7 %
    A hazy IPA brewed with tons of Simcoe hops. A pronounced mango and pineapple aroma compliment the medium sweetness and moderate bitterness of the Simcoe hops.

  • CBS 11.7 %
    Rich maple syrup, roasted coffee and velvety chocolate meld together in what can only be described as a transcendental drinking experience.

    Inspired by our favorite bourbon-based cocktail, this slow-sipper combines elements of caramel, spice and vanilla with subtle orange and cherry for a moderate sweetness and a warming finish.

  • KBS Hazelnut 12 %
    The perfectly balanced and decadent drinking experience of KBS meets the classic taste of hazelnut. Taking this bourbon barrel-aged stout to a new level. KBS Hazelnut allows the existing premium coffee and chocolate notes to soar to new heights when accented by the nutty sweetness of hazelnut.
