I really like the new Founders location. No smoking is a plus, with a nice deck for those that do. The glass near the Southside of the brewery showcases all of the beer equipment which is a nice touch. My girlfriend and I were watching a brewer cleaning and doing some other business inside the giant metal bins the last time I was there.
The beer is excellent. Quality beer with each beer you choose. I was once a little disappointed by the selection of beers earlier in the summer, but loved the selection the last time I was in.
If you want something to eat, you can't go wrong with the sandwich selection here. The Devil Dancer is one of the best (and hottest!) sandwiches I've had at a restaurant. The appetizer selection is enough to keep you interested too...I recommend the bruschetta.
I've never had a problem with the service, this is a quality establishment...don't miss it!

Good spot. Great beer. Wish I wasn't there on a week night. Friendly staff. Looks like a great place to spend an Autumn day. Fireplaces blazing outside, delicious beer inside. The choices in the gift shop were dizzying. Very reasonably priced. Def a great destination.
