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.

Great brewery. Brewing fantastic beers that entice the palate. You will hardly find a beer in this fine establishment that will not please and liven up your taste buds. The brewery provides an open atmosphere with plenty of seating in and outside. Architecture is rustic modern and industrial with plenty of stonework, wooden beams and weld work. The atmosphere is both busy and intimate, allowing one to participate in the bustle of the brewery, but also sit back and fade into the framework. Great ambiance and incredible large portioned appetizers and sandwiches that pair well with the incredible selection of flavorful beers. Well done Founders, until we meet again!

Great place to eat, have a drink, and have a get together with friends. Awesome beer selection with various price ranges. Founder's actually serves some of their beers in glasses other than pint glasses which is a nice break from the norm.
