Founders Brewing Co. will open its new brewery and taproom in Midtown on December 4. It is the second ever location for the 20-year-old brewery based in Grand Rapids.

Founders announced in late April that they would be partnering with Midtown Detroit Inc. and Invest Detroit to develop the location near the Masonic Temple.

“Having been born and raised in the metro area, Detroit has long held a special place in my heart,” said Mark Dorich, Founders’ vice president of retail operations, after the initial announcement. “It’s a hard working, no-nonsense, culturally diverse, and musically-inspired town, which happens to have the best sports teams in the country. Some of our strongest support has come from the east side of Michigan, and we could not think of a better place to expand our taproom experience.”

The 14,000 square foot location will open its doors on Monday, Dec. 4, at 3:00 p.m for a free grand opening celebration. Like the Grand Rapids location, the menu will feature handcrafted sandwiches and appetizers, but with its “own distinct attitude.”

In honor of the opening, Founder’s is releasing its final beer in its Barrel-Aged Series: CBS. The highly sought-after stout, last bottled in 2011, features rich maple syrup and whiskey notes. Tickets for the limited release will go on sale on Saturday, December 2 at 11:00 a.m. here.

There will also be 800 available spots for Founder’s Detroit Mug Club, with reservations beginning later this month.
