Big pub with plenty of room. The large bar itself is spacy and very inviting. I really liked the atmosphere there, kind of hard to put into words, right from the moment I walked in this pub I had a different feeling that just about all other pubs Iíve ever visited. Crowd is rather young (mostly early twenties) but not the drunken college kind. Cool eclectic crowd. The place is probably doing well because on a Sunday night it was almost packed. So I would suggest to avoid the Friday/Saturday night cause that must be annoyingly packed. Food menu is reasonably priced interesting sandwiches. Probably not the right place if youíre looking for a full cooked meal. Only 10 taps when I was there with 7 of them being their regular bottled beers. Iíll never complain about drinking a Redís Rye or a Centennial on tap although these are also available in other pubs.

Huge commercial wherehouse feel. 16oz beers were $2 when I was in on Monday evening! The taplist was a bit thin on my visit. I believe they had 7 beers on tap. The service was quick for the size of the crowd. The food was really good. A worthwhile stop.

not as awesome as the old location, but still cool. wait staff is very quick and knowledgable. food is always tasty, a nice selection of sandwiches and such. beer is amazing, usually 8 or 10 on tap at a time. nice place to see a show, although is can get a little loud and difficult to hear.

Visited 4/27/08. Late Sunday afternoon. This place is great. New facility, great area. Spacious and inviting. Pleanty of room inside with convertible widows to allow access to the patio. No sampler per say, but 1/2 pints are available. 10 beers on tap at the time of visit, including Imperial Stout and Rubaeus. 4 or so they donít bottle. Service as great and the server was quite knowledgable. Didnít get any food here, but itís a walk up window with, what looks like quite an interesting menu. If you are anywhere close to Grand Rapids, this is an essential stop!

Has a true brewer ambiance. Best ever sandwiches for lunch. Build your own sandwich with real ingredients. The barley stuffed candles are a nice touch. They usually have 5 regulars on tap, 2 seasonal, and an occasional rare special. Its the heart of GR.

I have been to both locations, and was hesitant to hear that Founders was moving as I wasnít sure if the ambiance would be changed for the worse. I was pleasantly surprised, as the new location has the same rustic warehouse-y feel as the old location without feeling corporate. Basically, the expansion served just as it was meant to, to keep the brewpub atmosphere while adding on some more room to offer food, more seating, and a more adequate stage area. Their beer is fantastic, and usually well-stocked. I ordered the hummus, my friend ordered one of their HUGE sandwiches. Both servings were enough for 2 people and tasted above average. The food selection is by far the best of any brewpub Iíve been to insofar as sandwiches go. The staff is cool and casual and I have not had a bad experience yet! Also within stumbling distance of a Greyhound bus station.

Made my first trip to Founders for the Ky Breakfast release party.BR
This should be the model for most brewpubs to follow. Great atmosphere, open and comfy. It doesnít hurt that itís ran by some of the best people in the biz, Dave, Mark et al. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment I spent there and wish I had a place like this near my home.BR
Good food and outstanding service. The only drawback to the new pub is the parking. When busy, youíll be finding a side street to park on.

Nice plave to have a beer. Stopped in on a monday afternoon. Beer selection on a chalkboard with no descriptions. If you donít know whatís what, it is a bit hard to order. The servers are busy and canít really explain anything (or donít want to) Great beer, mediocre service. Didnít eat, but the horseradish cheese dip for pretzels was tasty.

Visited on a Friday night. I like the new location downtown. Large open floor plan with a football-field long bar. Their beer is good, of course, but they didnít have much that I hadnít tried. They also sell bottled beer to go out of a small cooler, but it wasnít well stocked. They serve food, but I didnít eat. Iíll go again next time I make it to Grand Rapids.
