Founders held their third annual Firkin Freezeout this year on February 6, 2016. For the event, Founders tapped over 40 different firkins outside in their beer garden. Similar to last year’s event, tickets were available inside the brewery for $2 and were good for a 5 oz. sample pour with full pints available for 2 tickets. 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 has been having a great year so far. Late 2014 saw a limited draft re-release of fantastic Maple Bourbon barrel-aged CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout) which has been making numerous appearances both at the pub and at local bars and restaurants. On top of this, Founders really rolled out some favorite vintage beers for their weeklong Cellar Raid event in January, as well was recently visited by and tapped a collaborative release with the Scottish hosts of the Brew Dogs television series. In the midst of the flurry of activity at the brewery, I paid a visit to Founders in early February for yet another highly anticipated event, the 2nd annual Firkin Freezeout.

Recap of Founders Firkin Freezeout

 Recap of 2014 Founders Firkin Freezeout

Just as nothing beats an ice cold lager after a hot summer day of yard work, Michigan’s long cold winters are best paired with a strong and flavorful locally brewed craft beer, and what better way to appreciate a locally crafted ale then straight from a firkin? Founders Firkin Freezeout featured 50 different firkins tapped in their new beer garden where thirsty patrons gathered for an afternoon of fun, food, and beverage which included a live ice carving and smoked kielbasa kabobs.
