The First Post.

New website, new blog. We figured now was the perfect time to launch the Founders Brewing Company Blog. As we grow and as our beer gets into the hands of more people, we want to be able to share the stories behind what we do with all of you. We live the phrase that’s on all of our packaging: “Brewed for us. Enjoyed by everyone.” And we hope that our personality comes across in each and every one of the beers that you drink. But if you want a little bit more, this is the place to find it.

In this blog, we plan on writing about what’s going on in the brewery (Why are there giant bars of chocolate everywhere? Are the brewers having a Willy Wonka party? Oh, it’s because we’re brewing Breakfast Stout.); commentary on craft beer trends and news; beer festivals, tastings, dinners, and other events; live music and taproom happenings (brought to you by Joey, who runs our Taproom Facebook page); the story behind causes we support (such as Grand Rapids Whitewater); fun anecdotes about the Founders Family; updates on our current expansion progress; and, hopefully, we’ll be able to share some of the great Founders stories, photos, and more that we get from you, the people who drink our beer! A staff favorite is this Breakfast Stout birthday cake that was posted on our Flickr page:

    Great to see the website back up. That cake sure looks inviting! Was it made with Breakfast Stout?

    Good luck with the expansion. Looking forward to all the coming brews.

  3. Good interactive site. Fans of breweries like to stay conected to their fav’s, and websites are key to that. Too many craft breweries don’t take advantage of this tool. Kudo’s for Founders for the improvements to their site. Now start blogging about Nemesis. Right now, heading to my local Chicago sources to try and score 2010 Nem.

    Thanks for the comments, and glad you all like the site.

    Prager62–We’re not sure if Breakfast Stout was an actual ingredient in the cake, because we didn’t get to try it ourselves, but that would make it 10 times cooler than it already is!

  5. Love love love it. Founders and blogging, together finally. My life is complete.

    I think you should change it from ‘posts’ to pours – like each post would say “poured on” whatever date. Except you didn’t solicit feedback, sorry. But I still think that would be funny…

  6. This is a great post and may be one that ought to be followed up to see what goes on

    A chum sent this link the other day and I will be excitedly hoping for your next content. Carry on on the perfect work.
