Stop by here a couple days ago for dinner while in Michigan on vacation. I was really stoked to be able to go as I've loved every Founders beer I've had. The place was easy to find and much larger than I excepted. Pretty much one big open room with high ceilings, and a large outside patio that would be seperated by huge retractable windows in the winter. Waitstaff was very nice and attentive especially while I looked at all the glasswear thay had. I ended up buying a KBS glass, and a Dirty Bastard pint glass for 4 dollas each, nice deal! The selection was a bit weak since they didn't have an exclusives or 'special' beers at the time. The line up as of Friday was... Pale Ale, IPA, Dirty Bastard, Red's Rye, Rubueus, Oatmeal Stout, and the Porter. Beer is dirt cheap during happy hour (3-6 M-F), 2.75 for a pint I believe??? I had the Rueben sandwich which was excellent at 7.75. Although I had a great time visiting founders, I wouldn't see myself going back unless they something really spectacular on tap and in the area of course.
