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.

Lived in GR for 4 years, and have to say, without a doubt, this is my favorite brewery of all time. Homer bias? Fine. Nostalgia? Yes. But boy do they make some great beer. Plus the food is outstanding, and the music/environment is one of a kind. New beer garden takes it to another level. A must visit for any beer lover.
