Founders Brewing Co. was started in 1996 when Grand Rapids, MI natives Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers, who quit their jobs and took out sizable loans to make their dreams come true. Mike and Dave wanted to make the beer that they liked -- big bodied, in-your-face ales with complex flavors, large aromatics and above all, tons of flavor. This taste for something bigger struck a chord with beer drinkers throughout Michigan (and the across the world) and their full-flavored brews were a success.
Founders Breakfast Stout is the coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee from Ferris Coffee and Nut, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.
