The Founder's Brewery Taproom is a truly pleasant beer drinking environment. I swung by on a warm afternoon in May. The porch was open, as were the windows. An 80s dead show provided some quiet background music.

The custom mahogany bar was easily the most pleasant that I have had the pleasure to sit next. It seemed lkike it was designed just to fit me. Of course, this can't be the case. My wife is much smaller and found it equally comfortable.

The beers were excellent, and the waitstaff very attentive. Of course, it was an afternoon shift. While there were a ghood number of people there, I couldn't call it packed. They did seem to be doing a large number of growler fills, but my glass was never left empty.
