      Fixed it! We must have been thinking about our Louis Cornelius sandwich and then got distracted by hunger. Thanks for pointing it out!

    I was lucky enough to have a couple hours to spare in Grand Rapids before flying home from a business trip. I was able to visit Founders and have a few samplers before I left (I still nearly missed my plane). It was a great experience. I am an avid home brewer and tremendous fan of craft breweries. We are very lucky in So Cal to have a fantastic craft brew scene. Part of what makes it great is being able to visit awesome places like Stone, Firestone Walker, hangar 24, Golden Road and a multitude of others. So the question is, will founders eventually have at least a tasting room, or better yet an actual brewery, that we can visit?

      There are few better reasons to almost miss your plane home. No plans as of now to build a taproom out West, but no promises! Here at Founders and in life. Thanks for your feedback and support!
