Been here several times and plan to continue going back; Founders is in my opinion the best brewery in Michigan and one of my favorite breweries of all time (along with Russian River and Lagunitas).
Not only is the atmosphere awesome and the selection phenomenal, but the beer is also great and the food is pretty solid. Last time I went in I drank KBS and a few samplers (the oatmeal stout and honey wheat among others) and they were all fantastic. The service was good but not great, I ordered the Italian style sandwich and it was very good.l

I love Founders and can't wait to go back.

Atmosphere isn't as good at night.
