Founders Brewing Company

235 Grandville Ave SW, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503 USA

Add to Trip

“Brewer of Gnarly Ales!”

The Founders Family, a group of passionate beer enthusiasts, 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.”


We at Founders Brewing Co. have been lucky to evolve into one of the highest recognized breweries in the United States. We have been ranked in the top four breweries in the world by Ratebeer.com for the past four years in a row (4th in 2010, 2nd in 2011 and 2012, 3rd in 2013), and we have several beers listed in the top one hundred beers of the world on Beeradvocate.com. We were the winner of four medals at the 2010 World Beer Cup, two medals at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival, and one medal at the 2012 World Beer Cup.

I expected much better service from something like Founders. We walked in and barely found the end of a table to sit at after not seeing any servers anywhere to at least point out an available spot. The last two times I was here I gave up and walked out because I couldn't find a single server who would take my order and the bar was even slower.

I guess we got lucky this time and a server saw us sit down. He asked us what we wanted to drink but we had only just been able to see a menu and didn't know. He started walking away and said "I'll give you a bit." 30 min later we hadn't see the guy or any other servers walking around since then. So we decided to give up our spot at a table (which was taken immediately by someone else) to wait at the bar in a line for another 20 min because the 15 bartenders they have are unable to help more than two people at a time.

I was extremely disappointed that this type of service happened the only three times I have gone there. I will not be going back.

If ever styling the night in Grand Rapids, founders is the place to be!! Nestled between Avery brewing in the west and dogfish head in the east founders is an excellent place to please the palate. They have some only taproom beers to kickback as well as many other favorites. We only ate a soft pretzel but the other food looks good. Great atmosphere heatings lamps outside in the cold winter 😊and live music on the weekends at night!
