Founders' Brewery right in downtown Grand Rapids really surprised us. We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday and it was wall-to-wall packed. Even the long bar did not have a seat available. Ratebeer.com ranked them as the 4th best brewery in the world. They've won many medals in recent beer competitions and beeradvocate.com has several of their beers listed among their top 100 beers of the world. Obviously they are doing something right! The atmosphere is unpretentious with a huge glass wall separating the restaurant area from the brewing process which encourages public observations and exudes pride of operation. We not only enjoyed their brews, we thought their food was outstanding.
