Founders Taproom – Detroit Grand Opening

It seems like only months ago we had announced plans to break ground on a second taproom/brewery location in Detroit, MI with plans to open the winter of 2017… well, guess what? Winter 2017 is right around the corner and so is our second taproom! Construction moved along at breakneck speed and we are now (just about) ready to open our doors to Founders Taproom – Detroit and we could not be more pumped.

First things first, let’s get that taproom open!

*CBS tickets are sold out*

Since we’re opening a taproom in early December, we thought we’d get it going with a bottle release. That’s right, we’ll be selling a select number of CBS bottle tickets on Saturday, December 2 at 11am EST through this link. Some things to note about our Detroit CBS bottle release:

  • Bottle tickets for Grand Rapids pickup are non-transferrable to Detroit pickup (and Detroit to Grand Rapids)
  • Tickets are $50 each and include two bottles of CBS
  • Tickets are name and date-specific – you must pick up your bottles on the date specified on your ticket
  • The name on the ticket itself, the credit card used to purchase the ticket and the ID of the person picking up the bottles must all match
  • Refunds will not be issued for unused or lost tickets

Pickup takes place at the Detroit taproom on the date specified on your ticket. There will be three days to pickup:

  • 12/15/17 from 11am-9pm
  • 12/16/17 from 11am-9pm
  • 12/17/17 from 11am-9pm

    Been looking forward to the Detroit location since it was announced. I will make my first of many visits on the 8th. Can you tell me what the parking situation is like?

    • Nick

      Jeff, there is plenty of street parking in the area, although I expect the tap room will be packed every night being only a couple blocks from the new arena and there is an event there almost every night.
