I stopped in for about the 20th time this past Saturday and have decided to review after so many good experiences.
I had Cashew Mountain Brown, Mister E Froot, 10K IPA, Breakfast Stout, and Devil Dancer. Also tried some samples of the honey wheat and All Day, and took a growler of Reds Rye for home.
As usual the beers were exceptional, particularly Mister E Froot and Cashew, but they were all incredible. The food was out of this world as well.
Stopped in the gift shop and bought a keychain/bottle opener, I already own all the glasses they carry and am waiting on a shirt to come in that I ordered :)
If you are anywhere near GR, make sure nad make the stop to Founders...you won't be sorry!! The only day they charge cover is Saturday (5 bucks starting late into the evening) for the bands they bring in...get there early and still no cover.

It's the Taproom for one of the best breweries in the America. It's flat-out amazing, not like psychedelic or once in a lifetime, it's just a really cool place. I can't say the atmosphere is perfect, because the HUGE amount of tables seems to make you think they want to sell food...
Until you sidle to the bar, grab a stool and start bullshitting with the staff. They know the beer, they all drink it, and they can all describe it in beer lingo so you can make an educated choice. Team approach to serving, so I have no idea who got the sweet 30% tip I left, but they were all friendly, they were eager to keep my glass full, and there was no awkward infighting between the staff. They all genuinely look like they love their job.
The beer is all quality; if you don't like a particular beer, it isn't the quality, it's just not your style. The food is good, servings are huge (a half-sandwich is perfect for normal people, the overeaters can get a full, but it isn't necessary).
Great place to eat and have a beer, I go every time I am in town.
