founders fest 2015 

Founders Fest is the one day of the year in the summer that Founders Brewing Co. closes the doors to their taproom and invites everybody of drinking age to join them for a street party and music fest right outside the brewery. There is also food and entertainment and of course Founders is also known for some of the best beer in the world. The party starts early in the afternoon and goes late into the night. Getting there early is always best before the crowds get thick and lines get long but sticking around always pays off to stay for the later bands and who knows what they will tap next at the Specialty tent?

Recap of Sixth Annual Founders Fest Celebration

This year Founders featured a slightly reconfigured celebration to accommodate the ongoing construction at the brewery but no worries as all the key Founders Fest element were back: two alternating stages of continuous music, a premier selection of area food trucks, and of course beer tents including a tent of mainstays (and yes, Founders Fest Wheat,) as well as a speciality tent featuring half-pours of specialty brews and/or full pours from speciality firkins.
