been to the founders brew pub on many differnt occasions; finally getting down to reviewing this place!

Atmosphere: Really clean and well lit bar. Lots of room. Many tables and a decent size bar to belly up to. Its got a classy feel, but its still laid back.

Quality: Always good beer to drink here. Nuff said.

Service: This place is always busy. It does not matter if its early or late...weekday or weekend. The seem to handle the masses of people fairly well, but you do have to wait a little while to get a beer unless you are in a seat at the bar. All staff are friendly and knowledgable.

Selection: I really like that Founders divides the beers into Class I, Class II & Class III with different price tags according to the class of beer. Always a nice variety of beer styles, but also they still have the staples that Founders is known and loved for.

Food: Deli sandwiches mostly; nothing much for a hot line of food. Its not really needed though. Great Deli style sandwiches without a doubt. Nice compliment to all the world class beer!

Value: It not overly expensive and a great value for the quality.

Founders is probably one of my favorite Brewpubs!
