After months of anticipation, Grand Rapids-based brewery Founders Brewing Company opened its Detroit taproom on Monday.

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

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 offered membership to its mug club for 2018, but it quickly sold out last week.
