An excellent brewpub with loads of offerings, sound dampening, outside areas with heat lamps, very solid pub grub.

Stopped here on a brewery road trip. The place is huge. The draft selection was awesome, at least 5 beers Iíd never seen and the prices were lower than I expected. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful. We didnít eat here and I think that was a mistake. The food looked and smelled awesome. Defiantly check them out.

Went before/after big "remodel." Love that there are multiple bars now--helps ease any lines for service. Only one food window, still--might have a 5-10 minute wait in line just to order food occasionally, and it wraps around the place. Food options are decent--good bar food. Ambiance is awesome. Not too loud, beirgarten is fantastic (with fire pits for when itís colder).

Gotta visit if you are in GR. Limited food selection, but the beers make it all worth while. A bit of a hipster place, but who cares, the beers are worth it. If you are in town, you must go here.

Founders is a pretty sweet place. Typically it is a little crowded, as in you might not be able to get a table right away. The people that work there are very friendly and helpful. They always have a good selection of beers and specialty beers as well. Their food is limited to sandwiches, but they are some really good sandwiches. Overall this is a great place. They have bands occasionally too so if you like that sorta thing.

Very nice brewpub. One of the nicest brewpubs of the big breweries Iíve visited in the US. Good selection of beers. Good food. OK service. Parking was bit of a problem but thereís no problem money canít solve... Gift shop was a disappointment.
