Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers both had steady jobs when they decided to chase their dreams and open Founders Brewing–which meant writing a business plan, quitting their jobs, and taking out giant loans. They figured if you’re going to live life, you ought to live it hard, without regrets.
After some initial challenges, due to making well balanced but unremarkable beers, they were on the verge of bankruptcy. It was at this point that the original Founders team decided to brew the kind of beer that got them excited about brewing in the first place: complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor. The Founders Family has grown around this simple philosophy: “We don’t brew beer for the masses. Instead, our beers are crafted for a chosen few, a small cadre of renegades and rebels who enjoy a beer that pushes the limits of what is commonly accepted as taste. In short, we make beer for people like us.”
- Solid Gold: This is Founder’s take on a drinkable, classic lager. Brewed with the highest quality ingredients, come out and grab a six-pack of Solid Gold!
- All Day IPA: The beer that put session IPA on the modern craft beer map. This is the perfect beer for long weekends watching football or to enjoy after a long day’s work. It is brewed with a array of malts, grains and hops for nice balanced aromatics and a clean finish. We carry it in 19.2oz and 12oz cans!
- Mosaic Promise Single Hop Ale: Mosaic Promise showcases two unique ingredients: Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt. The versatility of the hop’s pleasing aroma and flavor characteristics and the traditional barley’s depth of flavor comprise this clean, rich, golden beer.
- Breakfast Stout: A classic coffee lover’s beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that doesn’t stop.
