Ahh.. Founders... =)
We arrived on a Thursday night, their live music night.
The bartender was helpful even though they were very crowded that night and took her time with us helping us select the beers we'd enjoy the most. We chose the Cashew Mountain Brown, Oatmeal Stout and Cerise.
Seating was community tables with some high up bar tables near the back away from the bar/stage. They had a couple of pool tables and probably a lot of other stuff that I didn't see due to the dark and the crowds. Huge outdoor patio that was also very crowded.
The beers were good quality, and if it wouldn't have been crowded we would have brought some home. Staff was circulating the tables clearing them quickly, offering limited table service (it was REALLY crowded!) and answering questions.
The Antipasto platter from the deli was delicious - we split it between 2 people and were pretty satisfied, you could definitely split it 4 or more ways for a light snack. Everything coming from the deli smelled pretty tasty.
We enjoyed our trip here - and have enjoyed the beers we've had from them both on premises and at home. Definitely worth the trip to see the mothership - go on Thursdays if you like good live music!
