You probably have at least a bit of familiarity with Founders, the Grand Rapids brewery that has rapidly (!) expanded to become an international player in the craft beer world. But how much do you really know? Find out, because it has a little something to do with Saved by the Bell.
1. It wasn't always called Founders
When college buddies Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers first got rolling on their brewery in 1997, it was called Canal St, named for a district of Grand Rapids where a bunch of breweries had existed in the 1800s. However, the old black & white photo they used for label art had "Founders" written on it, and the name stuck.
