This beer taught us that patience truly is a virtue. KBS is a big imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolate and then bourbon barrel-aged to perfection. Incredibly silky and full-bodied with notes of vanilla, cocoa, roasted coffee and charred oak.
Underground Mountain Brown (2019)

# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.50
Underground Mountain Brown is the harmonious drinking experience only achieved when our imperial brown ale, earthy sumatra coffee and a year aging in caves below Grand Rapids comes together. A team of malts complement the bold sumatra coffee perfectly, while time spent immersed in oak creates layers of depth and complexity. A celebration of the barrel, the bean and everything in between.

Más Agave

Score: 5.00
We love cocktails. Like, really love them. If you ask us, few are more refreshing than the tart and tangy margarita and our latest barrel-aged beer pays tribute to that perennial classic. We took an imperial gose brewed with agave, lime and sea salt and then aged it in tequila barrels for just the right amount of kick. Consider it a party in a bottle. Más Agave!
Frangelic Mountain Brown
Style: Brown Ale - Imperial / Double
ABV: 9.0%

# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.75
Hazelnut coffee-infused beer. The quintessential taproom "one-off" beer. Founders’ brewers created the Mountain Brown series for their taproom in Grand Rapids in 2007. It’s the 16th iteration in the series of popular brown ales and it likely won’t be the last. The singular characteristic of this beer comes from the use of hazelnut coffee in the brewing process. The beer has distinct aromatics with sweet and nutty flavors beautifully balanced.
Imperial Stout (2019)

# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.00
Brewed with an abundance of malts, this stout is smooth as silk, yet complex and rich in body. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature to allow the notes of chocolate, dark fruit and caramel to soar. Put another log on the fire, sit back and enjoy the moment with this full-bodied and utterly delicious cold weather companion.
KBS Espresso
Style: Stout - Coffee
ABV: 12.0%

# Ratings: 1

KBS gets its coffee fix in the very first variant to come from our beloved bourbon barrel-aged stout. Yes, KBS may already be brewed with coffee, but it gets some extra oomph when it’s aged on espresso beans after being removed from barrels. The result is a fresh and snappy coffee twist on our classic barrel-aged beer. Who says you can’t start your day with a barrel-aged stout?

Devil Dancer

IBUs: 112
# Ratings: 79,848
Score: 3.97
Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha's used to create this monster. More IBU's than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil.
Curmudgeon Old Ale

Brewed with molasses and a focus on malts, then oak-aged. The result is a strong, rich delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable.
Solid Gold

ABV: 4.4%
IBUs: 20
# Ratings: 79,688
Score: 3.44
Our brewery was built on an attitude of no regrets. An attitude of taking risks to bring the best beer possible to our fellow renegades and rebels. Never brewing to style, but always brewing what we want to drink. Our take on a classic, Solid Gold is a drinkable premium lager brewed with the highest quality ingredients. Challenging what a lager can be? That’s something we won’t regret.
Green Zebra
Style: Sour - Gose - Fruited
ABV: 4.6%
IBUs: 10
# Ratings: 76,418
Score: 3.75
Subtly sour and a little sweet, this ale is a refreshing take on a nearly extinct German style, gose. Watermelon is the highlight of this lightly-hopped treat and gives it a hint of satisfying juiciness. The soft mouthfeel and dry finish comes courtesy of the addition of sea salt, a traditional gose ingredient.
Dark Penance
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double Black
ABV: 8.9%
IBUs: 100
# Ratings: 73,985
Score: 3.85
A heavy malt foundation includes Crystal malt for sweetness and just enough Midnight Wheat malt to push the color to black. The bitterness is huge, but balanced by malt sweetness and alcohol burn. The hop flavors and aromas range from citrus to floral to pine thanks to a delicious blend of hand-selected Chinook and Centennial hops.
Pale Ale
Style: Pale Ale - American
ABV: 5.4%
IBUs: 35
# Ratings: 67,428
Score: 3.54
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle, this medium-bodied pale ale has a refreshing citrus flavor and a distinctive floral hop aroma due to the aggressive addition of hops during fermentation. You'll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.
Nitro Oatmeal Stout

Score: 3.94
Each fall, our brewhouse looks more like a greenhouse as thousands of pounds of wet hop cones arrive within hours of being picked by some of our favorite local hop growers. Acting quickly, we then load up these wet hops into what will become Harvest Ale – an impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes. Our ode to the beauty that is the wet, American hop.
