Deli features for the event included beef stroganoff and sloppy joes, as well as s’mores brownies for dessert. Also back by popular demand this year was the live ice sculpture.

Founders Brewing Co. recently completed work on their latest expansion which began in late 2014. The new expansion gives Founders the footprint to brew up to 900,000 barrels of beer annually with over 55,000 square feet of addition including a new 300 bbl brew house. This 40 million dollar expansion was fueled largely just due to the increasing demand of Founders All Day IPA, their popular hoppy but sessionable beer first introduced by the brewery as a seasonal release back in 2012 but has quickly became their largest selling beer available on draft, 6-pack bottles, or 15-pack can releases.

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?
