Founders Brewing Co.
235 Grandville Ave SW (btwn Williams & Bartlett St.)
Grand Rapids, MI 49503
Founders is the suds-pumping heart of Grand Rapids, one of America’s truly great beer towns, offering both year-round (All Day IPA, Dirty Bastard) and seasonal varieties to try or buy. But it’s not just about the beer. The constantly buzzing (especially during Michigan’s preciously short patio season) taproom somehow manages to be cozy and intimate despite its airplane hangar-like dimensions, and the unreasonably giant sandwiches are frequently named for Founders brews (try the Dirty Bastard… also, pairing idea!).
