January Brewery of the Month – Founders Brewing Co.

Founders Brewing Company

Grand Rapids, MI

In 1997, Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers decided to brew the kind of beer that got them excited about brewing in the first place: complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor.

Founders Brewing Co. has been lucky to evolve into one of the highest recognized breweries in the United States. They have been ranked as one of the top breweries in the world and have several beers listed in the top one hundred beers of the world. Two of its beers, Kentuckyfounders-brewing-company Breakfast Stout (KBS) and Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS), were ranked among BeerAdvocate’s top 10 beers. Founders Brewing Company has won six World Beer Cup medals, four European Beer Star medals and three Great American Beer Festival medals—thirteen medals total across eight different beers!

Half Wall Beer House carries several varieties of Founders brews!

If you’re an IPA fan, try their Centennial IPA. Or, if you’re more into the full-flavored porters and stouts, give Founders Porter a taste! Half Wall also rotates their Founders selections so keep your eye out for names like reDANKulousin or Mosaic Promise!
