Founders Brewing Company was founded by Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers, two guys that dreamt of owning a brewery. At first the brewery was unsuccessful, producing unremarkable beers and facing bankruptcy.

Located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Founders has evolved into one of the most recognized breweries in the U.S. They have been ranked towards the top on both Ratebeer.com and Beeradvocate.com, and they won six World Beer Cup medals, four European Beer Star medals and three Great American Beer Festival medals.
