Wednesday Beer Tasting - Founders Brewing
Beers from Founder's Brewing Co.
Special Guest Pourer
Jason Leffler from Hop & Wine Distributing
Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers played the smart bet, and it almost blew up in their faces. A while back they quit their jobs, took out loans, and started a brewery. The first beers they made were well-balanced standard fare. Those brews led them to the verge of bankruptcy. Rather than pull the plug, they decided to start making the kind of beers that excited them – “complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor.” Now the little brewery from Grand Rapids, MI is, as one of our customers put it, “one the best breweries ever.” In celebration of one of the few breweries that rate “full line status” with us (meaning we carry all of their beers that we can get), tonight we taste the beers from Founders Brewing Co.
