Mark your calendars: KBS Week 2018 is only a few months away!
A couple years in and Mike and Dave were brewing beers they thought people wanted – amber ales, pale ales, wheat beer – but things were not going well. The brewery was quickly losing money and they had to make some drastic changes or they would have to close the doors.
We’re celebrating 20 years of zero regrets and, to cap off the year, we threw a party in our Grand Rapids’ taproom, complete with its very own beer release of Tank Bender, a barrel-aged eisbock. Starting (and continuing) a brewery has had its fair share of bumps and, were it not for the support of so many fans near and far, we wouldn’t have been able to do this. Thanks to everyone who believed in us the past 20 years and here’s to 20 more!
We’ve been sharing the big updates from our 2018 availability calendar all week and, because you’ve been so patient, we’re now happy to present you with the entire thing!
We’ve been sharing the big updates from our 2018 availability calendar all week long and this next one might just be the best change yet! When we retired this beer from our lineup two years ago, we were faced with fan after fan pleading with us to bring it back – to say it wasn’t so. Well, we are happy to announce:
We’re sharing the big updates from our 2018 availability calendar all week long! Next up, a new package for our seasonal lineup and select year-round beers:
We’re unveiling the big changes from our 2018 availability calendar all week long! Next up, a brand new series emerges in a brewery far, far away…
We’ll be unrolling our 2018 calendar throughout the week and, to kick things off, we’re happy to share the two newest additions to our year-round lineup:
Our favorite January event is back!
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.
Thanksgiving is the best. Turkey, stuffing, pie, family and friends all centered around plenty of beer and tons of gratitude – what’s not to love? Our Culinary Director, Justin Golinski, created his next round of recipes in honor of the family-filled and food-overflowing celebration that is Thanksgiving. A Dirty Bastard-brined turkey, affectionately dubbed the ‘Dirty Bird’, a Centennial IPA-infused green bean casserole and an All Day IPA macaroni and cheese provide the basics for what is sure to be an amazing Thanksgiving feast.
Our consummate double-chocolate coffee oatmeal stout is back! Brewed with two types of coffee roasted with our friends at Ferris Coffee and Nut and packed with chocolate and oats, Breakfast Stout is the perfect way to kick off (or close down) a fantastic day.
This past Saturday, November 4 was Learn to Homebrew Day and, as something near and dear to our hearts (and current livelihoods), we thought we’d share some advice for those of you thinking of taking homebrewing up as a hobby. After all, it could turn into a career if our Brewmaster, Jeremy, is any indication.
At long last, the day is here. We are happy to (officially) announce the sixth and final release in our Barrel-Aged Series:
We recently asked you, our fans, to share your moment of no regret – a moment where you just decided to go for it. Of the hundreds of video submissions we received, nine standout winners were ultimately selected by our Co-Founder, Mike.
Another hop harvest come and gone…
A few years into opening a brewery and things weren’t looking good for Mike and Dave. The business was nowhere near profitable, checks were bouncing and they were forced to start selling non-crucial brewing equipment to make ends meet.
It’s our 20th anniversary and we’re celebrating all year long with artwork, videos, a party and now, an Untappd badge! To earn the ‘Twenty Years, Zero Regrets’ badge, check in two beers (draft, can, bottle) from our year-round lineup between now and October 31. This includes:
It’s that time of the year again… Hop Harvest Week! Our brewing team is heading out to Yakima Valley, Washington to meet with hop farmers, check out this year’s harvest and select the hops we’ll be brewing with in the coming year.
Our single hop ale, Mosaic Promise, showcases two beautiful ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt and now it has its very own Untappd badge!
