Winter just keeps on keepin’ on over here in Michigan and our Culinary Director, Justin Golinski, has the perfect recipe to match the cold. A rich and filling cassoulet made with our very own barrel-aged malt liquor, DKML. Feel free to substitute any other heavy, malt-forward beer if you’re not still hanging onto your DKML stash.
Do you ever wonder why some beer is served in fluted glasses, some in standard pint glasses and some in snifters?
We are happy to announce the latest addition to our year-round lineup – an easy-drinking, premium lager brewed with only the finest ingredients. Introducing:
We are happy to announce the launch of our corporate giving platform, The Big Pitcher!

Our Co-Founders, Mike and Dave, have always referred to the taproom as the heart of the brewery; the place where our culture was born and still, to this day, thrives.
Mark your calendars: KBS Week 2018 is only a few months away!
A couple years in and Mike and Dave were brewing beers they thought people wanted – amber ales, pale ales, wheat beer – but things were not going well. The brewery was quickly losing money and they had to make some drastic changes or they would have to close the doors.
We’re celebrating 20 years of zero regrets and, to cap off the year, we threw a party in our Grand Rapids’ taproom, complete with its very own beer release of Tank Bender, a barrel-aged eisbock. Starting (and continuing) a brewery has had its fair share of bumps and, were it not for the support of so many fans near and far, we wouldn’t have been able to do this. Thanks to everyone who believed in us the past 20 years and here’s to 20 more!
We’ve been sharing the big updates from our 2018 availability calendar all week and, because you’ve been so patient, we’re now happy to present you with the entire thing!
We’ve been sharing the big updates from our 2018 availability calendar all week long and this next one might just be the best change yet! When we retired this beer from our lineup two years ago, we were faced with fan after fan pleading with us to bring it back – to say it wasn’t so. Well, we are happy to announce:

We’ll be unrolling our 2018 calendar throughout the week and, to kick things off, we’re happy to share the two newest additions to our year-round lineup:
Our favorite January event is back!
It seems like only months ago we had announced plans to break ground on a second taproom/brewery location in Detroit, MI with plans to open the winter of 2017… well, guess what? Winter 2017 is right around the corner and so is our second taproom! Construction moved along at breakneck speed and we are now (just about) ready to open our doors to Founders Taproom – Detroit and we could not be more pumped.
Thanksgiving is the best. Turkey, stuffing, pie, family and friends all centered around plenty of beer and tons of gratitude – what’s not to love? Our Culinary Director, Justin Golinski, created his next round of recipes in honor of the family-filled and food-overflowing celebration that is Thanksgiving. A Dirty Bastard-brined turkey, affectionately dubbed the ‘Dirty Bird’, a Centennial IPA-infused green bean casserole and an All Day IPA macaroni and cheese provide the basics for what is sure to be an amazing Thanksgiving feast.
Our consummate double-chocolate coffee oatmeal stout is back! Brewed with two types of coffee roasted with our friends at Ferris Coffee and Nut and packed with chocolate and oats, Breakfast Stout is the perfect way to kick off (or close down) a fantastic day.
This past Saturday, November 4 was Learn to Homebrew Day and, as something near and dear to our hearts (and current livelihoods), we thought we’d share some advice for those of you thinking of taking homebrewing up as a hobby. After all, it could turn into a career if our Brewmaster, Jeremy, is any indication.
