Founders Brewing Co. Opens in Midtown

Founders Brewing Co. Opens in Midtown

It’s finally here! West Michigan’s popular craft brewer, Founders, opened its doors to a new taproom in Midtown.

The Detroit beer scene just got a major upgrade. Founders Brewing Co. now has a 14,000-square-foot ‘Taproom’ located behind the Masonic Temple and you can expect a whole lot more than your favorite beers on tap (Canadian Breakfast Stout anyone?). With a 400 person capacity, you probably won’t have to wait as long for a table and even if it’s a Friday night game day, you can order a beer at the bar and food at the take out station and stand beside the fire pit or under the heat lamps on the year-round patio.  The gift shop boasts Founders swag and bottles to take home with you. It just keeps getting better because there is also a parking lot.

Founders is a short walk north of Little Caesars Arena and creating its own footprint on Charlotte St. We bet the otherwise vacant territory won’t stay that way for long now that one of Michigan’s top craft brewer has taken up residence.
