If you are in Grand Rapids, this is a must visit. Food is counter service sandwiches. Getting fresh beer from the brewery is the real deal. They have their standards on tap all the time with specials rotating throughout the year.

Here for the KBS release. Despite all the trouble they had with ticket sales this event was really well run. The service was great and the beers were flowing. I canít wait to come back sometime.

What a cool brewpub. Itís an absolute must visit if youíre a beer dork. Or if youíre not. It gets crowded, but they have a dedicated service area that keeps everything moving. The food comes from a window. Basically everything is self service, but in a place that big and busy, it works the best.

Great place to try a Founders beer (no duh!). All of their mainstays/ bottled beers are on tap along with many one offs and experiments. If you like deli style sandwiches you must try a sandwich here. If you are in the area this place is a must visit.

Made a venture to Founderís before walking to a GR Griffins game. Ambiance is great - lots of seating, large windows and a casual atmosphere. Long taproom and bar. Wait staff regularly walks around asking if you need anything. Selection was good, not great, but was happy to get Backwoods Bastard on tap. Also ate the Backwoods Bastard sandwich - also good but not spectacular. Overall Founderís is a great atmosphere with great beer and good food. Looking forward to my next visit.

For a brewery that is ranked in the top 3 in the world, it is tremendously disappointing to know that their Class 3 beers are rarely, if ever, on tap.
I have supported Founders for almost a decade. I love their best beers (KBS, CBS, Bolt Cutter and the like), but the brewery is growing so fast that it feels like the it has forgotten its roots.
Maybe I just feel a bit scorned by Founders and the manner in which they make their best beers available to locals (see the 2013 KBS fiasco with Brown Paper Tickets), but the company is becoming so commercialized that they seem to have left its biggest supporters in its growth wake.
All-in-all, itís certainly a top brewery in the world, but there are other breweries within a couple hours that I have now chosen to frequent more often than Founders.

Industrial. They seemed to have designed and decorated according to massive crowds and lines. Hint hint. And bare in mind: I fucking love Founderís beers. Even their run-of-the-mill stuff, like Redís Rye, is great, let alone essentially everything they barrel. But the brewpub is subpar; it seems the trade off for having very good beer that is very well hyped is the department store version of a brewpub. Iíll go back, and I do enjoy my visits, but I go for the beer.

My favorite brewpub, hands down. Ambiance is terriffic. Big open space, with lots of communal tables and smaller seperate ones. Huge skylight creates for a great atmosphere. One of the biggest bars iíve ever seen too. Service is perfect, with a seat yourself, order from the bar idea, with a seperate food station with buzzers to come get the food when itís ready. Selections was pretty great. Lots of classics as well as some amazing one offs too including death and Ba imperial stout. Food was deli food, but excellent quality and deliciously unique. Beers were prices very well for thw quality, and the food was very cheap for how good it was. If in Michigan, you need to get here.
