Founders Brewing Company opening Detroit taproom on Dec. 4

Posted at 11:50 AM, Nov 28, 2017

After months of anticipation, Grand Rapids-based brewery Founders Brewing Company will open its Detroit taproom on Monday, Dec. 4.

Located on Charlotte St. just a couple of blocks away from Little Caesars Arena, the original announcement came in April.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. with what they say will be "plenty of food, beer and good times."

The taproom is 14,000 square feet and since they're opening in December, Founders will also hold a special bottle release of Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS). At 11.7 percent ABV, CBS is an imperial stout brewed with chocolate and coffee, aged in maple syrup bourbon barrels.

A select number of CBS tickets will be available online by clicking here at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2. They are $50 for two bottles, and are name and date specific, which means you have to bring your ID and pick up your bottles on the specific date.

Those dates will be from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. on Friday Dec. 15 - Sunday, Dec. 17. Anyone with questions can email

Founders is also offering membership to its mug club for 2018. Membership cost $60 and you can sign up at this link. Membership includes: Your very own mug with choice of text or image, $1 off draft beers all day every day, $2 off draft beers on Thursday, $2 off growler fills, discounted entry oto events in Detroit and Grand Rapids and occasional access to limited pre-release tickets for beer and events.
