vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.5

Founder's is located in the heritage park in Nelson which while nice is not a good thing as you have to pay just to get into the bar. I was lucky and the staff at the entrance let me in for free (as I'm a student) but it was nonetheless offputting.

The bar itself is nice enough and the deck outside was nice on the sunny day I visited.

The service was decent but rushed. I felt like they thought of themselves sort of like a tourist venture than a true brewery.

The selection is decent though the beers are not the most amazing I've ever had.
