Founders Brewing was founded 15 years ago by Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers. The duo both had non-beer, business, and undoubtedly boring jobs. Beer was their calling. After nearly going bankrupt making some “unremarkable” beers, they decided to make beer for themselves. Basically, what they want to drink – not everyone else.
They’ve come a long way in 15 years! In 2012, a few of their beers are ranked among the best on planet earth. RateBeer.com ranks Founders #2 in the world. Not bad right? In true beer fashion, the brewery is planning a special anniversary release. That’s Bolt Cutter pictured above. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to go ahead and assume the name is an allusion to “cutting the chain” on ordinary beer. It’s a big one too – 15%. That’s puts some limitations on what states Founders can ship it to. (I’m looking at you Georgia.)
Availability: 750ml bottles
