Looking to up your cocktail game? We’ve got just the thing to impress the most sophisticated cocktail drinker. The ‘Civilized Brutini’ is inspired by the one and only Vesper Martini – but you don’t need to be James Bond to enjoy this one. Big thanks to our resident bartender, Nic, for yet another home run of a beer cocktail:
No clue what to get Santa this year? We got you. ‘Founders Boozy Nog’ is the perfect treat to leave on the mantle – the cookies won’t even be missed. Big thanks to our resident bartender, Nic, for yet another home run of a beer cocktail:
This rich and decadent pound cake is perfect for enjoying on its own or with a snifter of CBS. Best part? It’s super-easy to recreate at home.
Our resident bartender, Nic, is at it again! This time he reached for our classic Porter to create his spin on a Dark n’ Stormy cocktail. This cocktail may look complicated, but rest-assured, even the least kitchen-savvy among us could recreate this with ease. Impress your friends and family this holiday season with this beauty:

Our resident bartender, Nic, whipped up something very special for you, just in time for the holidays. Our raspberry ale, Rubaeus, gets gussied up with gin, lemon and maraschino liqueur for an elevated take on our sweet and fruity beer. Plus, it’s super-easy to recreate!
Remember our All Day Getaway Contest? We asked our fans to submit their best All Day IPA photos for a chance to win a trip to Spain – yes, SPAIN! Our winner, Josh W. and his girlfriend, Valerie, just returned from their trip and we’re happy to share their recap with you (get ready to experience some travel envy):
We went all the way back to 2012 for the newest release in our Limited Series. Fun fact, this was the very first brown ale we ever put into a bottle! (Re)Introducing…
It’s time for CBS’ legendary last call! Yup, this is the last year we plan on making our maple-syrup bourbon barrel-aged chocolate coffee stout (say that 10x fast), so enjoy it while you can (and earn an Untappd badge while you’re at it).
We are thrilled – THRILLED, WE SAY – to share our first-ever KBS variant. Introducing…
We know many of you have been asking for an update on the Detroit taproom and your patience has been much appreciated as we worked out the best next steps. See below to learn more about our plans.

It’s time we share with you the next Mothership Series release! Here’s a hint: this beer has never been bottled and was previously only available on draft as a taproom exclusive. Without further ado, the 10th release in the taproom Mothership Series is:
Sad about Curmudgeon’s retirement? Well, you’re in luck, because we’re sharing the recipe with you on Learn to Homebrew Day!
This old ale is brewed with molasses and an insane focus on the malt bill, then oak-aged. The result is a rich, malty delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable. Check out our Brewmaster, Jeremy’s, Curmudgeon recipe below!
The lawsuit involving Founders Brewing Co. and Tracy Evans has been dismissed after the parties reached a settlement agreement. Per the agreement, terms of the settlement will not be disclosed.
The attached statements are what both sides have agreed to say about the settlement.
As has been reported in recent days, Founders has experienced some challenges at its Detroit taproom. We’re dealing with those challenges, so that we can continue to serve beer lovers in Detroit. To accomplish that, we will be closing the location until further notice.
To our Customers and Communities:
We understand that we have built our company because of the support of our customers – who are really more than that. They’re our fans. They’re the reason that Founders exists and has seen the growth it has over the years.
Please see below for a full statement regarding the recent Detroit Metro Times article provided by our legal counsel. The author chose not to include our full statement and, as a result, we are opting to share it with you.
One of our most popular taproom deli mainstays is our Dirty Bastard Bratwurst Chili and for good reason. It’s hearty, super-flavorful and just spicy enough to satisfy the heat-lovers while still being approachable. Best part? Now you can recreate this deliciousness at home.
