This April Founders Brewing will break ground on a $25 million 5,500 sq ft expansion of their facilities. The expansion will include more equipment, an educational facility, additional offices, enlarged taproom, deli and company store, and an outdoor beer garden. Other upgrades include efficiency efforts such as heating the offices using a chiller on our north cellar. With these upgrades Founders yearly production will bump up to about 320,000 bbl and about 50 more jobs will be created. They hope to have the new education center and retail spaces up and running for fall 2013.
