Founders Curmudgeon's Better Half

Founders Curmudgeon’s Better Half

User Rating:

Once again Founders puts forth a phenomenal brew!  Like many of their limited bottle releases, this beer was an experiment in their tap under the name Kaiser’s Curmudgeon.  This beer bares a great name and stellar label.  The Ol’ Mudge (as I like to call him) sits poised ready to dig into a stack of flapjacks with […] ...

Founders All Day IPA

Founders All Day IPA

User Rating:

I knew this beer was hitting stores near me the second week in February 2012 and I still had a hard time finding it.  I was not able to get to the store the day is arrived and two days later I ended up visiting 4 different locations in search for Founder’s latest addition to […] ... [Read more]

Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout

Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS)

User Rating:

CBS!!!  One of the most sought after beers in 2011 after it was announced that it would be packaged into 750mL bottles.  Selling at $18 per bottle at the brewery on October 1st, I’m sure it was a mad house as that is a great price point for such a phenomenal, highly coveted beer.  Their blog […] ...

Founders Devil Dancer Imperial IPA

Founders Devil Dancer Triple IPA

User Rating:

Fresh (2010):  $22.99 for a 4 pack, but I would argue that Devil Dancer is worth it.  You can enjoy one, age one, sell one, and share one.  I was on my screen porch when I cracked the bottle open and poured.  Even with a mild breeze outside all I could smell was a giant […] ... [Read more]

Founders Old Curmudgeon Ale

Founders Old Curmudgeon Ale

User Rating:

Curmedgeon.  A bad-tempered, crusty, difficult, stubborn, (generally) old person.  The label depicts what looks to me like an old John Calvin (college located nearby brewery).  Perhaps Founders is suggesting that scholars should step away from the books every once and a while before they become old and senile.  In all seriousness though, this beer is […] ...

Founders Breakfast Stout

Founders Breakfast Stout

User Rating:

Tom: Do you remember that Folgers jingle?  “The best part of waking up…”  Well, the answer lies in, “Breakfast Stout in your cup.”   Seriously, I’ve had this beer at night, mid-day, after work, but to truly get the full essence of this beer you should enjoy it on a Saturday morning with a hearty breakfast.  If you […] ...

Founders Blushing Monk

Founders Blushing Monk

User Rating:

Michael:  I used to be into wine. I thought those days were over, until I poured Founders “Belgian Style Ale fermented with pure raspberries.” I have never had anything by Founders that wasn’t good and so I had saved this limited release for several weeks, waiting for the right moment to indulge in what was […] ...

Founders Porter

User Rating:

Michael:  A simple name, practically boldly so. No barrel aged, no catchy alliteration, just plain porter. But this one from Founders is anything but a run-of-the-mill brew. Again, upon suggestion of one of the beer guys at the local liquor store, I am sampling a porter, not one of my usual favorite styles. After the […] ... [Read more]

Founders Imperial Stout

User Rating:

John: I tend to anticipate high quality from Founders so when I picked up this imperial stout my expectations were high. I wasn’t disappointed. It appeared as a deep, rich brown/black making a statement from the beginning. The head was creamy light brown but disappeared quickly. The aroma was alcohol, dark rich chocolate, heavy molasses […] ... [Read more]

Founders Backwoods Bastard

User Rating:

Michael:  This go ‘round, I know what I’m getting into. Last time I was in the ring with the Bastard, he kicked my unsuspecting ass. I didn’t know what a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy was, I didn’t know that when Founders said ‘It’s a kick-back sipper,’ they absolutely meant it. I just plain didn’t know. About […] ... [Read more]
